    The one trick he does at 3:22 was the one that cemented it for me; this guy is a legend.

    it takes a certain amount of cojones to pull tricks off with that fluidity. i can't even ride that smoothly.

    makes me want to learn bmx...

    That backward grind right after wasn't half-bad, either.

    okay, i shouldn't do this, as it really belongs in the bmx forum, but here's one of mirra, 2/28/05, working on what would seem to be a triple tailwhip. i couldn't link directly, so go here, and it'll be the very bottom link.

    Holy cow that dude is insane....Half the stuff he does most BMX'ers can do, but he pulls it off with such fluidity and grace. Truely elevates BMXing to an art form.

    I will say that I'm usually not a fan of the BMX. It just doesnt stike me to be as difficult as say, skateboarding, but this guy's vid was really impressive.

    It honestly was worth the half hour wait my computer took to buffer, or whatever.

    I'm glad y'all liked it.
    Really smooth style, pleasant music (no MTVesque emo), and total lack of bad boy posing made for a very refreshing video.
    And yes, the trick at 3:22 was way cool. BMX does the velodrome.

    as someone who's been skateboarding for the past 6 or 7 years on and off, i'll be the first to say that i think bmx is awesome and give those guys a lot of respect for the tricks they pull off... as long as they don't chunk up my ledges.

    Front Brake Revolution from that page has some pretty slick lip tricks, including a thru-frame icepick.

    See? You brakeless riders, front brakes have uses.

    The last half of that videos has me wondering; do those guys hate cars or love them? Maybe they just love America.

    I don't know, that superman tailwhip at the end did it for me. The boy killed it. When I rode BMX, I always thought that style and fluidity were more important than the "tech" of a trick. The most simple tricks done with such fluidity could impress me over some guy muscling a really hard one. He seems to combine the "tech" with the fluidity. Makes me want to start riding, but alas, BMX is for the young.

    This is exactly the same way I feel about skating - on the occasions that I still go down to the skatepark (haven't been yet this year, all about the riding) I'll head out there and do smooth lines and get a "flow" of the park. But the young 'uns are all about pulling up to a bank/curb/wall and pulling off some tech trick like a switch 360 or something and then coming away from it all sketch-like. I've always been more about the "big" as opposed to the "tech" so maybe I'm a little old school but I like watching strong flowing solid lines made up of big simpler tricks rather than tech stuff.

    Style, grace and elegance is like watching magic - the ride that the DCC did last night when Judah was in town from SF had elements like that especially Tony - who's easily the fastest and highly traffic atuned rider I've ever had the pleasure of seeing with my own eyes. He rode like there was no traffic or cars or lights. More on that in another photo thread soon.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    I skate too, and I have to say that Christian Hosoi has to be my all time fav skater. That boy oozed style doing s-turns down the street. Power and grace all in one.
