i wasn't hating... i just don't care. i think tricks are for bmx bikes...
kid's talented nonetheless.....
I swear I saw a kid with a fishing rod chasing another kid, plus two more kids pretending to fight each other.
Also a fruit juice freighter in the background.
I'll eat it first.
you DO know what BMX bikes evolved from right?
they weren't being used for their "intended" purpose either. But people found a fun way to use them and things went from there. A new sport developed from it.
700cmx is taking off and the new frames really don't look anything like what people were using even 5 years ago. Let it happen man, it's all fun. Don't be such a grouch about it.
sup hplusson rims
the thing is, bmx is already designed for this such purpose, its like riding a modified cruiser downhill mountain biking today
I expected the H+sons to explode.
2010 Motobecane Team Track
1997 GT Edge
2012 Kilo TT Stripper
if you borrow from the divides instead of putting up walls, you end up with awesome mongrel ****
I dunno what you guys are arguing about. The kid seems decent at what he does.
The proliferation of purpose built dirt jumping bikes has never stopped people from doing it on mountain bikes. No reason people can't do freestyle on fixed gear bikes. (Just like they were doing back at the turn of the 20th century.)

To those making and selling not-so-great fixie trick videos: Grow a pair. Get a BMX bike. Do some real tricks.
I don't mind the new generation of fixed-bmx(700cmx or whatever), while it's not for me I see no harm in people trying something new, or at least trying something old on a new vehicle. The kid was fairly talented and did some neat stuff, if this gets more people riding bikes then who really cares?
Anyways, sweet wheelies.
Problem is the video sucks. Next problem is that you can do every one of those tricks on a bmx. It's easier on a fixed gear yes.
The really big problem? Welcome to 1984. Those tricks are soooo old and nothing new. Its just old tricks on a rediscovered and newly styled bike type. I'm all for doing something new and innovative, but everything I see here has been done when I was a teenager by Pat Romano et al. Now go watch Quicksilver.
Haters gonna hate.
Ride or die.
