Lame Bike Video 3½
« on: May 03, 2007, 09:04:08 PM »
Timo Lanki from Finland sent a short flatland video he made:

"Well, what can i say.. i just made the short video from some of the leftover footage i had lying around on my computer. The footage was mostly shot by myself last summer (2006) at Meilahti basket ball courts, Helsinki, Finland. The song "The Tower" by Ice-T (from his 1991 album "O.G.") was featured in the 1991 Ells Bells vid "Dope Ammo 665½ -not quite evil" which was something we used to watch constantly back then. I always liked the song so i wanted to ride to it and it fits perfectly with the theme because i am stuck in the early 90's antics aswell.."

You can download Timo's video from our video section.

wohoo i really like the video! i like this mid-school style and the lamello tires! the music is good too! some of the spots were familiar because i've seen them in finnish videos (Flatstyles, Aapo Airas vids) so i liked it all!!!

yeah, 2Fresh is the man. (timo is his real name, he used 2Fresh back when he sent art in to the zines in the 80's).

He has some amazing bikes too.

His ozone is one of the best on the planet with all its "Gold" parts.

not to mention his street beat, master, gt's, vander bike, ect. ect...

though flatland is based on it.
