    I've always wondered, what the heck is free-style? I have heard of it in moto stuff, but never cycling (other then BMX, I think).

    Thats what I was thinking, but then I thought it was flatlands. I guess only a BMXer can do the 30 foot drops to flat on the C'dale, then. . .

    Sure it can handle drops like that- after all, it's "PROFFESIONALLY BUILT!!"

    I jumped off a rock into the lake once. It was 34 feet high measured by ski ropes. I thought it broke my ankles when I went in. That was in water too.

    Id pay a nice prize to see someone bombdrop 30 feet to the flats on a bike.

    I'll do it. But you have to pay for the ambulance and coroner to be there, ready and waiting.
    Some people are just like Slinky's. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    Santiago could drop that 30' to flat. One handed. With a latte in the other hand. No spillage.

    With a croissant in the other hand. And roses for the ladies between his teeth.

    Very true. I hear they come from miles around when you're in town with the carnival. 25 cents gets you a viewing of the bearded lady (gastro), the worlds oldest man (dminor) and the three-handed latte drinker (santiago).
