what do you mean by old school?

the tricks, the bikes, the fashion?

keep in mind, we wouldn't have new school if people hadn't carried the old school torch.

I'm happy to keep the old school stuff in the past and in my memories over a cold beer with friends.

funny thing is, what is old, is new again.
I remember when people didn't ride with pegs on their bikes because pegs hadn't been invented yet. now kids take off their pegs.....

are you asking for old school tricks to learn?
360's
tabletops
lookbacks
no handers
bar rides

I think that old school has alot more style, however they weren't doing as many difficult tricks like they do these days.

Rockwalks. Backwards infinity roll. Super tweaked out curb endos. Lawnmowers. Front Wheel 360's or Front wheel hops - just hops, nothing fancy. Cherrypicker drop ins. Still, as stated, a Maimi hopper drop in to fakie about beats em all...

Vander roll, Dance of Doom, Power mower, Scura tuck, Judge, and a whole lot more I just can't think of right now. Oh what about pedal pickers?

AS do I. Thinking about all the old tricks is making me wish I had an old FST again so I could just skid all over the place with brakes again.

Powerbars, power aide, power grips for your pedals... riding with power. as opposed to riding with meaning.. oh.. never mind. it was stretch. I'll go practice my scura tucks now...
