Ko-ichi aka Forkone | One Night Edit | Japan
« on: September 29, 2012, 07:35:21 PM »

Very interesting edit here from Ko-ichi; creativity both in bike setup and riding. It's a curious hybrid of old- and new-school, using an "interesting" bike setup. What do you think?

Loved it! Not keen on the bars tho :)
''let me tell ya something i did a front n rear wheel hang on the cloping on the slide of the spine, now i stick to street!''

''do you freestyle?''

However serious you take it general public sees us as just dicking about on 'kids' bikes, some people could do to remember that and smile a little.

i love japanese riders !

the word that always comes to my mind is "open-minded". they're all about FREE-style, and that's what is so interesting about them.

Flatlanding on a bmx with a fixed gear or a bar like that (I mean with the cross bar coming from the same tube than the grip tubes) has already been done few years back (Trevor Meyer, Shintaro Misawa), but that's against the trends in 2012 so that's pretty cool!!
And the riding is dope!!  :beer: :beer: :beer:
The editing is nice too
and the fact that the rider is wearing large jeans (baggy style) these days adds some good nice flavors to the mix!

This is killing me, WHERE IS THAT BASSLINE from? It's instantly recognisable, yet I am
unable to place where I (and anyone else from my era) knows it from.

Very cool edit. Much based around his own attitude rather than on modern trends. Some grown-up mind for me which is pretty rare these days... Ohh forgot he`s from Japan :)
Better to ride not so smooth but with your own style, than trying to be a copy.

Thank you SO much for that, it was driving me insane.

However, I have never even heard of Luniz (as far as i can remember... )

So I suspect I only remember the song from another flatland video from years ago... I wish
I had the mental capacity to back that thought up.

I blame the weed.

You may well be right sir.

Alas I cannot spend any more time racking my lacklustre brain on the matter
because I am starting to suspect it is I who am discombobulated by my own memories.
