FlaTTech killed it for the win! Always dig watching his videos... he threw in a ton of variety in his run, and that last halflash back around to decade was a sick ender. Edwards rocked too, and I was especially feeling his video because it looks like he got stuck riding in his garage like I did for my clip. lol  Very good stuff, gentlemen.

BTW FlaTTech, I'm saving your clip to my iPod. It was too sick...  :beer:

Hi Ondo, there they go about the crankless stuff again..
Dont they realize the trade-off of being crankless??
riding out of a lardwhip NEEDS cranks(generally..watch other vids to prove this).
landing from whoppers and decades NEEDS cranks too..
and many Pedaling/pedal Tricks are Sacrificed!

i think its just fair.

why don't you guys try removing your cranks to see for yourself if it makes
your stuff "easier"...

Haha, i can vouch for this. Alexis is busting some wild crankless sh*t lately, like a kittten playing with a ball.

I have and it does. I'm sorry but a bike without a drive train isn't a bike. If you can't put cranks on because you don't have the money then I'll be more than happy to ask around about getting you a set cheap, but if you are doing it out of choice then I don't really feel for you. Riding out of a lardyard does not require cranks at all, neither do the other tricks. You can do them both ways. However doing a whopper on a bike without cranks is stupid easy compared to a bike with cranks.

I'm sorry that you're offended by my position on this, but that's how I feel about it. If you can do those links WITh cranks, you would f*cking destroy expert class. think about it.

Anyway onto the current battle.

flattech pretty much just decimated Lee so my vote goes to flattech.

I 100% agree, Tj.  Crankless riders might as well slap a Razor sticker on their scooters or come up with a new name for their type of riding cos your definitely not riding flatland biCYCLES.
And yes I have tried crankless riding when my freecoaster broke and it is X10 easier.

That isn't the case here. He's not riding crankless for the sake of doing it like someone in bananapants here, he just has no other means of riding. However, as much as i WANT to count his tricks on the same level of difficulty, I just can't.

It sucks because it frustrates me knowing he could definitely do sh*t with cranks, but that's not what's in the video. :(

Same goes for them IMO.   With out an entire drivetrain you not only save huge amount of weight, but you eliminate the uneven weight distribution that goes along with having a drive train and you don't have to worry about dodging your cranks or pedal placement in a trick.
When people ride crankless it dilutes their skill level tremendously.
I understand not having the dough to get some cranks though.

digging the bikes on the wall too :D

I think it looks silly having no cranks, but isn't it just a big weight reduction? How else does it take away from your riding?
