    The OPs video were the most impressive tricks I've seen on a fixed gear that wasn't art cycling.

    yea, i don't really get into fixed gear tricks like that either. his style looks alot smoother and cleaner than most. most fixed gear tricks look all sketchy like they always just barely land their tricks. his were not though.

    lol @ the ****ers in this thread who are calling a pro trials rider a "noob" and telling him to get foot retention.
    before posting, a "noob" should always ask themselves "could this have been answered by first visiting Sheldon Brown

    i kinda wondered quietly to myself what it would look like if a trials rider tried fixed.

    and it was awesome.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    I thought it was sweet! the end of the horse was ****ing funny! and I used to hate on those FG trick dudes too!
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I never understood why someone would want to do tricks on a fixed gear, they were not designed for that kind of abuse. Forks are pretty skinny, tires are pumped up to 120psi, the wheels are pretty flimsy. Just buy a BMX bike for tricks, or use the fixie just to ride it like it was meant to be.

    Bikes are ment for riding, not tricks. Doing tricks make them a novelty, like a skateboard.

    Is this the part of the thread where we argue that fixed gear tricks are way less impressive than a half-decent BMX rider? Or should that wait till page 2?

    Oh I know. Dude is ****ing amazing. That said, the "lol first time on fixed" subject line got me wrong at 7:00 AM. I think the video's quite OK, actually, and the rider himself fantastic.
