quick trick question
« on: January 03, 2012, 03:11:44 AM »

I was messing around with something tonight, and I'm quite sure someone has done it before...

It's like an un-steamroller.  (can be extrapolated to an un-whiplash, or un-whopper, or whatever your imagination holds)

Basically, you hold your hands all funny on the grip and seat, then snap the bike in front of you so that you're in the steamroller position (or further...), but the front end never changes angle on the head tube.  Does that make sense?

I am quite sure someone's done this before, because this is small potatoes compared to all the sh*t people have come up with.  Show me though?

can you explain a bit better the trick i can't figure it out.
If I ever see a flat rider do a hop-to-wallride, my head would explode.

The bike would be doing a rockwalk, except you would be staying in front of it.

it's like this?: you are on the back pegs right hand on right grip and left on the seat then you jump you make a barflip and at the same time you move the frame then you land whit left foot on left peg and you are in a cross hand steam.

Yes; there might be other ways to do it also, but that seems the most straightforward.

That's the first rider that came to mind when reading this.
