The video was sick but I think the animal team just isn't on the level that odyssey or fit is. Ps. I'd wrap it up like bread and tie it closed. Even then, it's a bad idea to leave it outside.

Reply to pros and cons of bigger bars 9"+ 12/19/2016 1:27 PM

I agree that 9 should be the maximum for most but if your 6"5 you may need 9+ bars. Pros: In my opinion highe rise bars allow you to be more up right and view that as a benefit. You can compare older props videos to the way that Stevie Churchill rides ... more »

Reply to Bunny hop feeling more like a jump 12/18/2016 11:43 AM

You may find this helpful while learning the motion! If so, please let me know! To bunny hop well you must be able to get the front and back wheel of the ground separately. Most riders can pull the front end up easily so I’ll describe how one could work ... more »

Reply to Crashing 12/18/2016 11:41 AM

I'd have to choose both options. I'm tired of breaking bones and smashing my face into the concrete but I love the feeling of learning a new trick or variation. Also, I usually try to find one trick or area to progress in while I'm usually just flowing ... more »

Reply to Why Fat Tires Blow 12/18/2016 11:37 AM

I like a big tire in the front as it seems to lessen the impact a bit. I keep a small tire in the back but haven't had any alignment issues yet. I think 9" rise bars are the future because it allows riders to have an erect spine while riding. Check out ... more »

Reply to Cani switch front foot 12/18/2016 11:31 AM

Don't be concerned with others opinions. There's plenty of goofy footed riders and if anything, it makes their style more unique and entertaining to watch. You can watch Matt Guttirez ride goofy footed and he "makes everything look so good". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ye47pyGpA8 ... more »

I broke my odyssey clutch hub several times this year but odyssey was helpful through out the entire process. Kudos to their warranty department.

Reply to Frames 12/13/2016 2:32 PM

I'd say the DK frame only because it's heavier. Which means it'll most likely be stronger. I'd recommend a different brand if you have a wide selection.

Reply to Worst bail ever 12/12/2016 12:57 PM

I've wedged my nuts between the frame and back wheel once. My balls looked like Barney's for the next week. I've also nose cased on a quarter and face planted from the top of a 9 foot quarter. Lastly, broke my wrist while trying to back flip. SMH

Reply to Can't fakie out on a freecoaster 12/12/2016 12:53 PM

Two options on a free coaster. You either need to half cab with no pedal pressure or slide out by leaning back and turning the bars 90.You can use pedal pressure but it's highly frowned upon. To half cab allow your bike to pivot, turn your head and hop ... more »

Reply to Footjam whip help. 12/12/2016 12:23 PM

I imagine it like doing a no footer and then clamping back onto the pedals or cranks. So aim for the front food and then clamp the back foot on.

Reply to Fakie direction question. 12/12/2016 12:21 PM

When you begin doing barspins if you naturally spin left while having left foot forward it will make your barspin 180/ 360's very difficult. If I were you I would try my hardest to make spinning right feel natural. If you half cab easier that way you ... more »

Reply to how do i keep all my weight ballenced during fakie?? 12/12/2016 12:18 PM

I like the wall endo thing. If you can pivot out or half cab that's all that matters for now. Get good at that and then learn how to fakie longer. For free coasters it's a bit more of a balancing act, for cassettes you can kind of control things while ... more »

coca cola works as well. Although, new tires will be your best bet.
