a freewheel is a back sprocket that threads on to the hub. on a flip flop hub has two sides threaded; one for 13 and 14t freewheels, the other for larger freewheels. a cassette is a hub with no external threads that uses a driver. you can put a cog on the driver, or you can get a 1 pc driver if you want gearing below 33-12. A freecoaster is a hub that allows you to ride fakie without the crank rotating. when you pedal forward, the driver doesn't engage until you rotate your crank about 1/8 to 1/16 of a circle.

Right click on the photo, select "properties", that's the photo location. Cut and paste into the link on here. Make sense?

if you were there you would have thought that it is gay. it was a small 2 foot ledge down 10 stairs, concrete, not waxed. i hopped on it and just put my leg over the bars while sitting down. my friend has a bash guard so he rodeo grinded it.

it's like a sprocket grind, but you take the foot opposite to the ledge and put it under the seat

Not quite. You grind on the pedal or the sprocket, or both, turn the bike 45-90 degrees to the direction of the ledge, take the hand opposite the ledge off, and use your back (non-grind side) foot to either lift the seat or press on the rear tire, raising the nose of the bike off the ledge.

I posted one of me doing a barspin rodeo a few weeks ago. Let me find the link to it on my site really quick.

Click to enlarge.



A normal rodeo looks exactly the same, except that my right hand would be on the bars, and my left would be somewhere behind me.
