John Englebert?

Does anyone know where i can get some footage of him. I want to see one of the first freecoaster riders at work. Or footage of anyone else that rode freecoasters before they were cool.

That's what his name is on Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 1 and 2. I forgot his real name was John Englebert.

Most boring rider on the planet. Everything he does is in slow motion.

Karl is better than Dan Cox and Ian Schwartz. But Bruce Crisman is almost better than them all

Maybe. But Carl Poynter does some cool stuff. I loved his Shook part.

Don't forget about Catfish, he does some really cool stuff with a freecoaster...

Dan Cox is amazing, and I like Ian Schwartz a bit. Bruce Crisman does some cool stuff, but he does the same things over and over. In his Facad part, all he did was basically barspins and spins. His fakie fakie wallride and fakie turndown down a lot of steps was extremely cool though.

No, I'm not. Everything the kid does is aggravatingly slow, and he rides like a robot. Half the problem with all these guys riding coasters now (with exceptions - ex: Crisman) is that they don't ride at a decent speed, and their style seems completely forced. If you're going to do a backwards manual, that's great. But don't do it at -.5mph.

He still does a whole bunch of cool stuff. Yes, he could go a bit faster, but he is still only 17 (maybe 18 now, I'm not sure).

Slow riding is the freecoasting way. It's the way it's meant to look

I think a 540 cab down a 3 set is pretty good

Haha, those sliders are pretty cool. He's just a technical rider. Everything he does is rather smooth and he manuals and nose manuals a lot.

i run 2 shadow tyres and an attack stem and they are all sweet. The stem is light and has really good clamping power and it looks good. As for the tyres, they are rubber and hold 110psi. no complaints.

Shadow has cool clothes. But i'm not a fan of most of their parts. They make nice grips, but they last like 3 days.
