Is it true in Japan you once wrestled a sumo wrestler to gain the affection of a mermaid?
Did you used to make kids cover their eyes when they were looking at naked lady grips?
Are you bringing the handlebar mustache back? And if so are rides still a quarter?

Www.mrbikesnboards.com is not hiring right meow but you can feel free to clean the windows, clean up trash, and stop spilling polar pops all over the shop.
Wax that ass, stop by and buy some and eat it till ya gums bleed.
Japan rules, I'd wrestle anything over there.
Naked lady grips are for all eyes to see, follow me?
Beard rides are better and less creepy than mustache rides.
Steve can be my body guard anytime specially with happy endings.

Hey Chad,

As a fellow front brake rider, how did you first get into riding front brakes?
What's your inspiration to keep on using them today?
Also, what are three of your favorite tricks to do with front brakes?

Thanks,

Front brakes just seemed normal when I started in 1986. So this wasn't anything I just TRIED. It was stock to ride 4 pegs and two brakes. Endos and front wheel always got me excited. Manuel's on the back end seemed to easy and easy to get out of, but front nose wheelies always had commitment and more satisfaction. Once I learned hang 5's it was game on...
Inspiration for using them today would have to be most of my tricks are front wheel based unless I'm jumping or grinding. Front wheel is the good wheel. Going to only front brakes was tough to do and took some time to get use to, but I love it and do miss an occasional skid here and there. Shit, front wheel skids are legit and sliders are skids to right?

3 favorite tricks are any hang 5 trick into something to end it like a nose whip or whatever.
Nose picks on any and everything all nose diced and boned dry.
Backwards nose wheelies or hang 5's rule to. Way easier with brakes and more controlled with consistency. Most front brake tricks go with consistency.

Lastly, my favorite trick now with front brakes is bar dips or almost Miami hopper dips, those feel cool as hell and are almost t bog style.

Good question, but as soon as the forum let me in, the man answered...Any way I was going to commend you on your fine and proper use of these forums, to gain knowledge...

Look, Chad might get a little bent that I'm telling of his shifty ways on a public forum...

At the first B.S., Chainsaw Massacre in Dallas, Chad tried to get other kids to sell his bearing bar ends(the easiest way to learn hitchiker tricks according to Chad, but really Kevin said just "don't let the bars touch..."), but he'd all sit back, don't let his easygoing demeanor fool you...

Bar ends with bearings are legit son, gotta cheat to get ahead, and I did. We didn't call it cheating but being creative and using our heads to make it work. We're not all kevin jones with no bar scrapes but at least 20 years later I still do a hiker with no help and not even metal bar ends so if I do scrape my grips tell me.

Some frenchies might not like the hiker but it's pretty legit and you should know your roots and where it got you.

As for McGoo, glad to answer with his style but would rather his ask away cause he sure as shit will ask a serious question that will make heads roll.

Holla and good times ahead. This shit is gonna get good real quick...

why did you start riding and why did you choose flat?
and I'm thinking of coming by the shop this weekend. do you have any sweet shirts in an xl?

I chose to ride but got real known for flat. That was something that really caught me and never got old. Flat is personal and with the right space and tunes is magical. Mystical magical morning missile. Get it done.

As for stopping by the shop, please do, we're open and ready to shreddie. As for xl seat shirts, that's a tough one since were still in the heat. Might be better close to December hitting the hoodie at Mr B's. We can special order one for ya if you don't mind getting it in a few days?

Will there ever be a BACO 11? The BACO series, especially Take it For Baco has been my favorite video since I saw it many years ago.

Do you consider me a friend?

Trying to finish that edit, need a few more clips but no one is stepping up.

Custom tee, if course. I'll throw some bleach and coffee and catsup on one and call it yours, give you like 5% off as well.

My frame will be for sale once tons frames drops. I don't mind selling samples cause their so sweet and one offs.

You got my number fool, now your being a fag.

Bike shop owner is good cause I answer to myself if it sucks. But if it sucks usually it means I need to improve and spend money which sucks. The shop is necessary for our area though. But some of these dumb ass kids don't understand we don't buy from dans, we buy direct, and we're a shop that makes money to survive like any other business. So if you ask for a discount you had better have a trade or great reason we should bend our prices to help you. We're fair but some people think were dicks cause we don't warranty other companies products. Do the math fucko.

As for deco, love it all. Good brand, clean goods, and we're in it for the long haul. Deco is me doing my thing with support from the real people. Trust me, we're doing our thing and happy as hell with it.

Do I consider you my friend? Yes but you getting a lil creepy with comments and asking me that. If you don't know now you know. Get your shit right, get off the end of the rail, get on it and in it...

@Corey...

Since you appear to be an intelligent and inquisitive rider...You deserve a proper response to your questions, which are very thought provoking I might add...

I'm going to stand in for Chad for tonight...

I know, I know....I'm not Chad D, the Mustache Man, but I can glide about any idea forward, backwards, turbine, etc, Dennis helped me learn lip tricks to backwards and forwards nosewheelies in, so Chad might let me get away with answering a question or two here as I'm somewhat equipped....

These are only my answers...

1) Front brakes are fun.

2) Fun is inspiration to keep using them. Or if you don't want to use them, don't pull the lever.

3)On any given day of riding I can come up with three favorite front brake tricks...I like 360 tailwhip nosepicks to backwards nose wheelie in, or 540 tailwhip nosepicks Canadian to nose wheelie hang no feets. I like slaloming through oncoming traffic in multiple flailing variations of nose wheelies and then end with a nice turbine around the vehicle to slingshot off the (usually nice SUV or Taxi) into more oncoming traffic.


Keep riding and build your skillz man, front wheel techniques are based on the same ideas as a manual, no more difficult once you find the path of least resistance on your front wheel...Keep with it-

Chad,

When you filmed the no shoe links in BACO 5 or 6, did you stub your toes on the decades?

Hey Chad,

As a fellow front brake rider, how did you first get into riding front brakes?
What's your inspiration to keep on using them today?
Also, what are three of your favorite tricks to do with front brakes?

Thanks,
Corey Furmage

Good question, but as soon as the forum let me in, the man answered...Any way I was going to commend you on your fine and proper use of these forums, to gain knowledge...

Look, Chad might get a little bent that I'm telling of his shifty ways on a public forum...

At the first B.S., Chainsaw Massacre in Dallas, Chad tried to get other kids to sell his bearing bar ends(the easiest way to learn hitchiker tricks according to Chad, but really Kevin said just "don't let the bars touch..."), but he'd all sit back, don't let his easygoing demeanor fool you...

Who put you in charge of answering posts? McGoo? -

Bar ends with bearings are legit son, gotta cheat to get ahead, and I did. We didn't call it cheating but being creative and using our heads to make it work. We're not all kevin jones with no bar scrapes but at least 20 years later I still do a hiker with no help and not even metal bar ends so if I do scrape my grips tell me.

Some frenchies might not like the hiker but it's pretty legit and you should know your roots and where it got you.

As for McGoo, glad to answer with his style but would rather his ask away cause he sure as shit will ask a serious question that will make heads roll.

Holla and good times ahead. This shit is gonna get good real quick...

OK,

This is part of why I have always respected your riding Mr. DeGroot...

The inventor of such techniques as the Hitchiker and Backpacker taught it as it came to him....a rolling front wheel undertaker, both forward and backwards. From the GO days you were juggling them until you ran out of space(right?).

The idea was passed down to me from Kevin not as a position, but rather a technique involving going in one side and out the other, thus the rolling undertaker. Jugglers and related ideas and techniques open the door to a whole realm of possibilities...and you don't even need front brakes.
