To me, flatland is life...

seriously,

Flatland is the attempt at doing a trick involving balance on flat ground... or something like that.

I guess I would say....bike tricking on a flat surface.

Could be wrong.

flatland is my life.
First of you spend years of learning and thinking about it.
secondly you get so many e-motions
you can be happy,mad,tired,dissapointed,injured with it etc
You can laugh,talk,teach,train,swear,sweat ...
You can make money,shows or ride as a hobby.
you can have  a standard routine,be original or a copycat.
And many many other thinks.
you can see it as an art or sport.
You can do whatever you want on this little bike.
just remember be patient and the goods are coming..
that is flatland

Equilibrium......{the single word that defines flatland}

An extremely technical, difficult and artistic sport with the main objective being to find your centre of balance point or equilibrium, which is located in the hubs, but having to constantly find and relearn this balance point within your mind and body with each different position, pivot, pump and g turn you or the bike are motive in.

Flatland is freedom.  The only limit is your imagination.  Each rider shapes it to their own will, desire and ability.  It is zen like in the way you focus and become one with your instrument.  There are two things that will always keep me riding.  One is the feeling of riding.  I love how everything else in life disappears in the moment.  The other thing is the brotherhood that we all share as flatlanders.  Flatland is pure.
