The end made me cringe. He ate it so hard and still got up.

I think that's the main problem with FGFS. There's a certain lack of imagination. That's what makes Keo so popular and fun to watch, he's creative.

edit: In fact, the Macaframa movie is full of really cool ****. Like when the guy does a keo-esque spin and then wacks his front wheel against a pole to make it bar-spin.

Macaframa is full of great fgfs stuff. I couldn't help but remember this FGFS on a penny-farthing:

oh hell yeah.
that "on bondage" track from the lamarche video was on one of the first punk cd's i ever bought. I got it from BMG back when there were all those CD mail order companies' Buy 1 Get 10 Free deals!

Still have the cd 15-16 years later.

This thread may very well be useless because we seem to be quite intolerant about FGFS and no one is ready to be flamed; besides the thick skins like Chancon and Shane(?).

Obligatory lolcat:

Who is that? Tried googling it but you can imagine the results I get.

Nevermind, it bugged me all morning but the name popped into my head as I was eating lunch.

how bout another 1 of those "FGFS sweet edits" as Squirrelli put it earlier in this thread?

ok...so it ain't fg
but it's some amazing riding, could it be called fs?
to see a helluva flip, stick with it to the end...

A video I made from my time in San Francisco over the weekend of Red Bull Ride + Style.

Featuring Tom Lamarche, Nasty, Funny, Joe McKeag, Matt Spencer & others.

Scrodzilla 05-13-11 07:01 AM

Hate it or not, I think some of the stuff Chacon pulls off is pretty rad.


Fantana 05-13-11 07:50 PM

Who's the band/Whats the song on that last one Scrod? Any ideas?

Bueller?

Scrodzilla 05-14-11 08:12 AM

No idea.

^^^ Definitely a lot more acrobatic stunts, especially at the end. This is a lot better. Maybe a bit more of the trials type tricks would be
good.

Fantana 05-19-11 03:13 PM

man, the last trick of the vid was super slick...

markaitch 05-31-11 03:42 PM

That was the most impressive fgfs video I've seen to date but for the record I was watching bmx guys do that down stairs 5 years ago

hamish5178 05-31-11 04:56 PM

5 years late is better than the 30 years late that they've been running ;)
