I swear I saw a kid with a fishing rod chasing another kid, plus two more kids pretending to fight each other.

Also a fruit juice freighter in the background.

yeah because things in the cycling world should never evolve....

you DO know what BMX bikes evolved from right?



they weren't being used for their "intended" purpose either. But people found a fun way to use them and things went from there. A new sport developed from it.

700cmx is taking off and the new frames really don't look anything like what people were using even 5 years ago. Let it happen man, it's all fun. Don't be such a grouch about it.

look at the trick before the one minute mark.
fixed gears can do tricks no bmx can do, and vice versa.

people do tricks on mountain bikes too . And bmx was designed for a purpose much like the new trick fgfs frames that are coming out. Then what else did we get from bmx and mtb... hmmm 100mm travel forks on bmxs = dirt jump, and what does that leave us with? Even more tricking on different platforms.

On a related note, saw this at BFF a year or so ago, really interesting movie (even if DH/MTB isn't your thing).

The proliferation of purpose built dirt jumping bikes has never stopped people from doing it on mountain bikes. No reason people can't do freestyle on fixed gear bikes. (Just like they were doing back at the turn of the 20th century.)

Sure. I only criticize when they start making and promoting videos of lame tricks like in the OP.

Back in MY day, you had to actually land the tricks to get a video part. Half of the tricks were not landed and he only did 2 or 3 tricks in the whole video. Not worthy of a video part. Sorry.

To those making and selling not-so-great fixie trick videos: Grow a pair. Get a BMX bike. Do some real tricks.

I don't mind the new generation of fixed-bmx(700cmx or whatever), while it's not for me I see no harm in people trying something new, or at least trying something old on a new vehicle. The kid was fairly talented and did some neat stuff, if this gets more people riding bikes then who really cares?

Anyways, sweet wheelies.

I get that, and it does suck to keep seeing the same old trick repeated endlessly, but not everyone is an innovator. I just get annoyed by people criticizing the use of fixed gears because they're not proper trick bikes. Whatever, it's something new and may live or it may die. It gets people outside to do something, doesn't it?

Problem is the video sucks. Next problem is that you can do every one of those tricks on a bmx. It's easier on a fixed gear yes.

The really big problem? Welcome to 1984. Those tricks are soooo old and nothing new. Its just old tricks on a rediscovered and newly styled bike type. I'm all for doing something new and innovative, but everything I see here has been done when I was a teenager by Pat Romano et al. Now go watch Quicksilver.
