Nac Nacs (still cool?)

Ok, i have to admit it.

I like to do Nac Nacs. Any other Nac Nackers out there?

Why did they get such a bad rap, but can cans are cool?

I also like heel clickers (although ive never done one) Why do people look down on them?

Hell yeah. I read an interview with Cowan (maybe chase) I believe (one of 'those' guys) and he still likes heelkickers because they are stylish. I think most people that don't like them think they are overdone. (BTW I can't nac nac but I love style)

I like CanCan's too

I do not like Nac nacs but I do like the paddy wack

Actually my favorit move is the "Kiss of Death" I have yet to attempt it but if done wright I think it is one of the sickest moves.

That is a sweet pic of the K.I.D. but he does it with even more extension where the bike and he ar in a perfect vertical line. It looks compleatly sick when he hits it perfect.

I find the KID to be my fav trick to watch along with nac nacs etc...probably the most boring trick is, gasp, backflip. It is being killed and overdone. Oh well just my thing I guess

I have seen a rider do a back flip with a tail whip and one with a bar spin. Those were pretty impresive.

I was going to add that caveat. A backflip while doing stuff...cool (bmx and mtb backflips come to mind) but mx backflips you don't see much variation.

Backflip to manual will ALWAYS get my rocks off...
