Without clicking I knew that had to be squirrel, that guy is hands down got the best technique/form. People have claimed longer skids, but it must've been conditions, I think with all else being equal he'd win head to head against anyone.

Sam (or other people "in the know"): what's the name of the lady who served me coffee at Jet Fuel recently? Tall with curly dark shoulder-length (I think) hair. I've seen her like 5 times in various places this week.

Jeremy: I'll probably be there in the neighborhood of 6:00 or 6:30. I was thinking of at least stopping at Cherry Bomb or Alternative Grounds for some coffee.

In a nutshell: UTW is the *****.
Cons: Stabilizer strap not super stable. No clip loop for rear light. Secondary rear strap snags on saddle sometimes.

I didn't even realize they had an option for a a padded back until I read this over. The review itself could do with improvements like picture captions. I agree with teh cons but then again I don't have the Messential (going to sell my bag soon and rebuy this with a padded back).

Edit: Didn't list pros, because the entire review was pros almost - go read it.

Re: Stuff Tonight
I can drop by after my stuff gets sorted out. What time around guys?

But Afrika Bambaataa is neither cheesy nor embarassing. I saw him perform a couple years ago at PS1 in NYC. Good times!

I don't know if he is still around but Chris Bishop from D.C. would give him a run for the title. When we had the NACCC's in Toronto we had a pretty long skid course. At the end was a barricade to keep folk's out of traffic on Cherry Street. Not only did he go the whole length of the course but he also skidded around the barricade...thru traffic....around another barricade on the other side and just kept going. That s#!t was the bomb. It takes a certain (read nuts) type to pull that off.

okay, maybe they're not all cheesy; i'm sort of going for a good playlist that a guy in a bad outfit can dance to. 80's cheese is just part of it.

Now if he tires of skid comps he has potential in ski flying vis-a-vid Eddie the Eagle.

Oh yea Keith....get the thickest laminate you can get for those cards, paper stock isn't very robust.

I do know what they are, and I'm already cringing. A friend of mine is a piercer in St. John's and he had a guy come in asking about them once.. *shudder*
