My vote goes to iceqb25. Nice bw hicker there!. Maax i really liked the rideout of your last trick, good job!

If I was a judge, I would vote for iceqb25 too because of his nice backwards hitchiker and hang 5

Great effort by you guys! Really good beginner stuff from both guys... iceqb25 should be ahead slightly due to showcasing some forward rolling and double footed skills in his run. Loved Maax's flowed out one-handed mccircle line...
Title: Re: ROUND 5: BEGINNER class (Maax vs iceqb25)
Post by: 2flat2furious on June 16, 2011, 07:44:26 PM
Vote for max. Ice has no cranks, which makes most of what he does easier. Yeah, he had some forward rolling stuff, but without having to even fight the weight of a drivetrain it's not that different of a balance point than if you had used an unbike. Sorry Ice, but put some cranks on and I'll feel differently.

vote goes to ice for more variation and lil higher difficulty.

Damn... didn't even notice he didn't have cranks on. That's what I get for quick views of the battles during work... that definitely changes the dynamic on things like a bw hiker. Minus points, but in that case, depends on how the judges feel. Could there be some official way of factoring in crankless for the judges to follow, or is it just going to remain some kind of gray area every battle?

If dudes do not have cranks, it is very unlikely they will be getting my vote. Either put them on and ride a bike, or don't and gamble.

Pretty tight battle. Thought Maax's McCircle rideout was sick (the way the cranks spin is funny, too) and I'm gonna try to bite that one! I think the battle would be a lot closer if you had stuck something else in besides the bar hop, though. Took up a lot of your time and I bet you had some other cool tricks you coulda used there. Double foot and no-handing the ride in the barhop is kinda hard though.

Ice's Steam reload was pretty cool too. You don't see that a lot in beginners videos. BW hiker, Hang 5 and BW Peg Wheelie combo (interesting rideout) were pretty serious, but you gotta get them cranks so we can stop bugging you about it.

That's because i have't got chaaaainn!!! my backweel was broken!
 Now i have a new bike... and it's more heavy :/

Post by: iceqb25 on June 17, 2011, 07:13:20 AM
ha ha i  have cranks but trust me, it doesnt change the balance really with them off. i cant do anything different with or without them. i only took them off cuz i dont do any tricks involving the pedals and i always get hit in the shins. my bike still weighs about 24 pounds. i can put them back on cuz i dont wanna loose simply because i prefer to ride without them
Title: Re: ROUND 5: BEGINNER class (Maax vs iceqb25)
Post by: iceqb25 on June 17, 2011, 07:18:08 AM
Also, no cranks makes hitchhikers  and front wheel tricks harder cuz the center of weight is more towards the front

OK I have a few points to make,Maxx ,mcircle rideout, clean and I have tried before from forkwhips,to do that still struggle, only pulled it a couple of times,the bar hop, still after 18 years riding ,never had the nerve, almost hit my head  once on the side of my friends house,{Itold him to hold the bike still while I jump over the bars,and got caught up luckily not knocking myself out...and I have nevr did a megaspin that clean,my vote is for maxx
2nd,ice,You had more variety  I guess but for real hitchikers and hang fives ,all that stuff is too easy without the cranks, I rode for two years without cranks, I understand having gear issues,or hub issues, that is why I did it, but most of the time ,and even now ,i'm working on hitch jugglar moves and usually it is the pedals that mess me up,making the tricks harder,but that is PART OF THE BICYCLE MECHANIC,u had good riding,but just get them cranks on...AND LET"S JUST PAIR UP ALL THE CRANKLESS RIDERS<if people are still going to summit footage that way....and whoever is the final crankless wonder will be the runner up for the winner of the battle reguardless....

crankless does make hang 5s easier but not hitchhikers, i think it makes it harder. i do them alot better with the cranks. but i also have a broken freecoaster and im painting my bike soon so those are some other reasons i took them off. im putting them back on after i paint my bike and get a new freecoaster. but that wont be for awhile so i hope i wont get judged because i have no cranks. like i said, i can do the same tricks with or without them

Ice, I'm not stupid. I've ridden without cranks for a session before. It makes your bike light enough so you can throw it around and balance with it however you want pretty much. A whole part of learning hikers is avoiding the pedals which isn't easy to do.

Yeah, I think a bike without cranks is like a scooter too and I hate it.

"Should a bike have cranks?" is like "Should a bike have brakes?": There are many different opinions on these.

vote goes to Maax

His run was good, but not as good in variety as iceqb25, really tight, but still he wins, because iceqb25 had 7 seconds too long run and that was a -1 in my view.

Last vote to Aeons of Flat.

Please stop the crankless discussion, it's going nowhere.

Something i don't know ... If Ice or me loose this round ... we are out of the contest ? or we have a battle with other rider ? ... thanks

He have more variety because his runs are most short

true, except i learned all my tricks with cranks so its hard getting used to the different balance point. but i can put them back on if its that big of a deal. but like i said, my freecoaster is a little messed up and my cranks spin forwards sometimes

Difficulty, adhering to time limits, backwheel link was nice.

I Liked jorgesalas run but @jorgesalas: It doesnt help you if you pull a Trick 3 times! Try to put there some more variety in next time.. ;)
Phlatliner had a better Run with longer Combos/Tricks And more variety..

Ok, Jorge did 3 times the same peg wheelie and 2 cyclones... Not much variety here...

However, phlatliner, even if he has no cranks, only repeated his megaspin,  and all the rest was different, so I would vote for him.
Title: Re: ROUND 5: BEGINNER class (phlatliner vs jorgesalas)
Post by: iceqb25 on June 18, 2011, 07:09:13 PM
phlatliner's run was overall better, more variety and harder stuff. and i love the pegs where the cranks go. i was trying to figure out a good way to do that

Before I get bashed for the record my  crank broke on me I still have to. Ride to spot I didn't enjoy the crankless riding there that's why I put a set of pegs there so I could rest my feet on but I do have a crank now so if I proceed you guys will see a crankful phlatliner  ;D

jorgesalas - that firehydrant was good, but about the peg manuals- try to put them all together next time, you could save some time for other tricks!

Ice, I'm not stupid. I've ridden without cranks for a session before. It makes your bike light enough so you can throw it around and balance with it however you want pretty much. A whole part of learning hikers is avoiding the pedals which isn't easy to do.

true, except i learned all my tricks with cranks so its hard getting used to the different balance point. but i can put them back on if its that big of a deal. but like i said, my freecoaster is a little messed up and my cranks spin forwards sometimes


it IS a big deal cause this is a comp for bikes not scooters

So happy for Ian because he has not been riding flat very long at all and I talked him into this totally last-minute when we were lookin to fill out the battles. Dude is comin up quick and will try anything. He had some really nice rolling stuff here. Really solid beginner battle video all around.

Bruno's Steam Funky Chik Steam was pretty sick too.

There's no exact date. We just have to wait for the first three quarterfinal battles to finish. After that Ondo will announce our battle on this thread and our videos will be due 4 days after that.

It seems like in the past things slow down a lil bit after the Qualifiers so it may easily be weeks away. But you never know! Gotta stay tuned here to stay on top of it.

Andrew your battle will start in about 15th july, so you have to send in your video ~19th july.

Anyway, I will be away from 5 - 12 july, so you can film it then and send it in faster..

Well it was nice while it lasted. Congratulations Freshmaker and good luck with the semifinals.

Did someone mention an intrest in seeing a bloopers reel? Check the main battle thread for some outakes from my quarterfinal sessions.

Right on Rick... that messiah and the G-turn steam I just learned between my qualification video and the quarter final video.. sore arms... callous hands and all. This is my first time doing this online video thing and its really pushing my riding. So thanks to global-flat for putting it on, ondo for moderating, and the judges for their feedback all the riders for pushing me to ride harder.   ;D

good variety, originality and control.
Bit of repetition with those peg wheelie combos Laame but overall it was pretty close.

Post by: ortho on August 02, 2011, 03:21:01 AM
Pretty tough fight! Laame's getting the spinning stuff and some nice rolling tricks like the H5 and that tomahawk (bw steamboat i think), but Mannie's run has some harder tricks. Really impressive to see that hiker and barflip action. Combined with your upside down and undertaker tricks you got a serious trick bag!
Title: Re: ROUND 5: BEGINNER class (manniedamaniac vs laame) voting active!
Post by: ondo on August 02, 2011, 07:39:16 AM
Mannie gets my vote. Because of bw hitch & upside down peg manual. Also loved the x hand bw steamroller or what is that called..

Laame had a good run too, the spins and the bw steam boat was cool!

Been thinking about this for a while. I think Mannie just edges out Ortho in terms of difficulty. Ortho is smooth but mannie did some of the same tricks and then a bw hitch, barflip and undertaker which just edges him over.

Guys, Welcome to the Intermediate class. You both are killing it!
Ortho, wiiiiiiide variety of tricks. It's impressive.
Mannie, Very hard tricks! Plus an amazing style.

In my opinion, Mannie should move on because he beats Ortho on difficulty.

Cant wait to see these guys riding in a few months, lot of potential here...

Well-done Mannie, that was a great video. I am proud to lose to you! You have some really strong combos. These battles have been so awesome for my riding. I learned a ton of new stuff these past few months and I'll probably spend awhile trying to dial everything in and work on becoming an Intermediate. It's been kind of intense and it'll be nice to lay back a lil. Thanks go out to Ondo and the judges for their time and encouragement and to all the riders that I battled for killing it this year! The battles are my favorite.

Both of you guys put up a really really good showing, and it's very rare that a beginner battle comes down to this, but I think mannied gets my vote on originality. It's not every day you see a beginner level rider pushing some unique ideas, and I was pleasantly surprised by his video.

Fresh you had a really really solid video as well so don't think you're not deserving of props. I look forward to more videos from the both of you in the future :)

Congratulations mannie! Looks like you took it. Thanks everyone for props! I can see mysef participating in more battles in the future. This has really pushed me to ride harder and focus more on learning new things.

Don't sell yourself short bro! You had a very solid video. Solid mix of both front and rear wheel, and a smooth unique style. Great battle mannie!
