The New Revolution - The Upside Down Bike
« on: August 15, 2013, 07:26:55 PM »

Michele took a funny approach to this one, by installing the front end upside down. Amazingly, he's able to ride this crazy contraption pretty well!

His geometry just went Old School... and this is epic  ???

Hoffman rode Half Pipes on upside down bikes and the Plywood Hoods did Flatland on them ages ago  :beer:


How is this a New Revolution?  ::)

wtf, what revolution??? its just stupid, viki and martti style was revolution, then matthias dandois style was revolution and this is just stupud, but if you have fun with up side down frame so keep doing it...

so many people are lazy and they want to be famous or make "revolution" in easy way, you are one of them. if you want to make revolution in flatland and be different in cool way, so work hard! ride everyday 8 hours dont copy another riders tricks and make your own style.

I highly doubt this guy was trying to be revolutionary in any way.  Just someone having some fun on his bike and recorded it for us all to see.  It's creative and that's a good thing.

Yeah, I think this was also sort of done as humor.

Anyone who wants to talk sh*t should watch some of Michele's other videos because he's quite good.

Being quite good has nothing to do with The New Revolution  ::) Just shows where you guys heads are  ::)

Hoffman is Good as well as the Plywood Hoods... What's your point?  ::)

If he turns his handlebar upside down as wel ill give him 10 points for originlity just get stuck with 9 points now. :P

Had fun watching this even more then the same old run's from our best known riders so he made a point in a way. :)

Like I said -- I'm pretty sure "New Revolution" is just humor. Unless they actually mean this but I really don't think so. And the Plywood Hoods were revolutionary.
