I have seen trials videos before. And i ususally do not reply to video posts. However, I have not been on this website for a while and already have made a few posts today. I think i will continue the current trend here. As I have previously stated, I have seen trials videos before. I used to dirt jump and flatland all throughout elementary and middle school. Bike and skate films were as good as porn for me back in those days. As a midwesterner, i have recently discovered what mountain biking is really about. I remember watching Trevor Meyer and DMC on the very frist few X-Games. And I can remember that guy from the traveling GT team doing crazy trails riding in the parking lot of my LBS when i was eight years old. I own Roam. I have appreciated the art of riding a bicycle for a very large portion of my life. The skill, balance, and creative ability that some people are capable of, or moreover adept to do, never ceases to amaze me. The overwhelming excitement i feel when i watch something new blows me away. The progression and infinite possibilities of what can be done on two wheels completey befuddles my mind. When you think you have seen it all, somebody finds something new. I honestly do not think i will ever get tired of this stuff. Trials riding especially. Even the tiniest stuff, like the abubaca to backwards wheelie in this clip, drops my jaw and leaves me completely astonished every time. I am sorry for all of you have read this far already. My ramblings are mindless and redundant. I am not sure what inspired these thoughts. Maybe it is the stress of studying for finals. Maybe it was the fact cake supplied the soundtrack for the clip. Maybe i just had a bicycle related epiphany. You can even blame it on the pabst! Whatever my inspiration, I am glad i wrote it down and shared it here, tonight. This is a good forum. We all ride bicycles. Happy trails to everyone!

i think the foam was more for his attempt at a front flip than anything else.
