Vote goes to flaTTech

Difficulty, short bomb combos, it's awesome.

Huck looks very smooth, but too slow(less links) in comparison with flaTTech.

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.

A 9T rear cog w/ a lightweight chain and a 16T sprocket does not really equate to 'huge amount of weight' or massive 'uneven weight distribution'.

Crankless, yes. Hyrbrid setups, no.

IMO, its the difference between my ufree and my previous KHE reverse. THAT is the realistic difference of weight.

Are we to also criticize those who run 140mm cranks and lower aswell? Since they are smaller and lighter they obvious aide yes? Where is the stopping point? Define it.

man, I dont think there is a "stopping point"..

Flatland is Dynamic... Innovative... and it Evolves...
I think going crankless is also a part of it's evolution, i think ADAM PINTEK is the one who First rode Crankless and put Pegs on the BB instead.. :mellow: he does Original tricks (CASPER and PEG Juggler) out of his unique setup..

If there is bias in weight reduction, then would a 14lbs crankless bike be justified if his opponent is using a 14lbs normal bike?

oh well, for me its not an issue. It has advantages and disadvantes. so it is just fair..
...A cranless bike is NOT a scooter, scooters dont have a Frame, Seat, 20" tires, etc....

This issue is like the "zero offset bars/forks VS offset bars/forks"... -later on, people will accept and realize that it is just innovation,and it is a personal preference..

oh well, off we Go to the next battle... ;D

 Thanks all for the positive comments, and to Huck for the battle!  I really like your first link, great hangten to switch foot steam, nice stuff..

 Zoffy, glad you mentioned you put the clip on your Ipod,  probably the first clip of mine on an Ipod,  ha!  I've never seen anyone do that halflash to reverse boom to footjam brakeless decade before, so I'm claiming that one!   Although I would guess someone has done it before..

Well, if we remove the entire 2nd clip where he touches, I'll still give pine the round. The first link killed jose's run. Oh, and the random spanish throughout the vid was incredibly annoying IMO. Put some latino music to it or some sh*t hah :P

My vote goes to pine, nice first rutine, the no hand spining and the pedal wheelie turbine was awesome, but props to jose felix for the song, very funny jeje.
I want to se more of you on the next round pine, but try to don't touch the floor.
good vid
