    Is there a name for this style of riding?

    sorry if this already exists in the "videos" thread, but i was just wondering what you all thought about this aspect of fixed riding. big bmx/trials nod for sure, but is this where its heading?

    I used to like it a lot but I'm over it now. I'd rather watch BMX. I say that without disrespect. All these cats from Cadence, MASH, etc. are very talented.

    The riding skills are IMPRESSIVE.
    The rear wheel 180 and 360 landing to the rear and riding it out was nice.

    I have to say however, I am non plussed by the 80's/emo fashion that permeates the group............
    the abandoned shopko parking lot was a nice touch however.

    The judges would have also accepted "BMX Freestyle".

    Boring?

    While I don't deny their riding abilities and skill, i'd much rather watch BMX street stuff.

    Considering flatland/freestyle BMX is really just BMX racing bikes taken to the street for tricks, I don't see anything wrong with taking track racing bikes to the street for tricks. All in good fun.

    you couldn't be more wrong freestyle bmx bikes are totally different from race bike race bikes are super light and fast freestyle bikes are heavier with some serious frame gusseting thicker axles usually 14mm the frames even have different geometry

    He is talking about the origins of freestyle bmx.. which was bmx bikes straight from the track back in the day.

    Nothing against these riders and I don't know them at all. But, I would guess that doing these same tricks on a BMX bike they would be called lame. Any 14 year old can do that stuff. But, for some reason if you do it on a fixie you got "mad bike skillzzzzzz".

    That being said, no one (myself included) can talk sh*t about people just havin' fun goofin' off on their bikes.
