    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.

    Obligatory lolcat:

    Hey someone knows me from my "sweet edits"! Thanks for the recognition man.

    here's some recent stuff:

    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.

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

    ^^^ 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.
