https://www.profileracing.com/product/zcoaster%C2%81-hub/ Simply put, it's a hybrid of a freecoaster and a cassette, but the hub is never 100% one or the other. Kinda confusing, but the idea is it's the "best of both worlds" to many.

Agreed, that was a killer edit. Reminded me of Danny MacAskill’s Imaginate film.

Not really, actually. Tons of park and street riders have used it in addition to flatlanders. Adam LZ, Justin Dowell, Jay Dalton, many more I can’t think of now.

I can see this becoming used in flatland, but not much elsewhere. I don’t hate it at all, seems pretty cool, but I’d never run it.

You know, BMX brakes are still firmly grounded in the purpose to slow down and stop. People have just adapted to ride with them in different ways. Heck, some MTB riders use brakes to do fufanus. Not to mention Martin Ashton doing fufanus and abubaus ... more »

The thing is, you can be right handed your whole life, but if you’re accustomed to a lefty lever, it’s hard to just swap like that. Random side note, I noticed that between late 2013 and early 2014, Alex Hiam swapped from left to right before going brakeless.

Plot twist, there’s no hub internals.

Added reply in a thread Quick question about the Shovelhead 4/16/2018 12:23 PM

You can use it on the other side, but it’ll be upside down. Also, make sure you don’t twist the cable when you swap it over to the left, so remove the lever completely from the cable, install it on the bars, then reattach the cable to the lever. If you ... more »

They just don't know how forums work.

Maybe these aren't so street-oriented, but they're creative for sure in my eyes. Kriss Kyle's "Fancy Footwork" is amazingly creative. Erik Elstran and Rob DiQuattro are incredibly fun and do quirky tricks. I know nobody here rides a bike capable of some ... more »

Are 5 clips still the limit? Just sent in 4.

Typical Hawaii weather ended my session early today, but I'm decently happy with the ones I e-mailed in.

Added reply in a thread How do you prevent tilting while in the air 4/13/2018 11:44 PM

^ Exactly that. Chances are you simply aren't pulling up the correct way. Are you talking about tilting side-to-side or more of a up-down kind of tilt?
