Good video. Good riding. But the guy with the freecoaster needs to do sliders instead of normal turnarounds. I don't mean to hate, but sliders are the best ever.

I want to do sliders, but I'm still working on getting back my normal fakies. I'm getting closer and closer, but still having trouble lifting my front end and turning around. Not cool.

I find them to be 2048569364872396 times harder without a freecoaster. With a freecoaster i can just slide them forever, but with a cassette or freewheel you gotta pedal backwards and stuff, so mine aren't as X TREME. Naaaaaa mean brahhh?
