    Well, he did have to modify it. It's a pretty rad video.

    Stout? Was that meant to be sarcastic?

    I know he was pushing it wayyy beyond its intended use but it broke in half on the first jump!

    Oh man, what a load of laughs! Thank you, Zach!

    I love the crunch sound it made every time it hit the ground.

    The video reinforces the reason to use a BMX bike when needed.

    The bicycle skills are admirable but why would he try such stunts on a C&V mixte, let alone without a helmet?

    Regardless, awesome and hilarious video. I cracked up when it just collapsed after the first trick.

    I think he picked that bike for the style statement since it must be a totally un-hip bike there. Funny that it would be a desirable bike on this side of the pond.
