The secret to super smooth brakeless front wheel switches is: NO REAR PEGS. Forget about drilling holes and plastic parts, 2 pegs are the future.

Ugh hope that was all a joke lol. I got mad spect for shintaro but ignoring half of your bikes capabilities is to me a philosophy of limitation.

Or a philosophy of specialization.
It truly is a romance of many dimensions, isn't it?

I got to see all of this firsthand...yes, be jealous. ;D

Shintaro is such a smooth and dialed rider.  I must admit, it's hard for my novice eyes to completely understand what he is doing...that's a good thing!

Really nice, laid back gentleman aswell.   :beer:
