Re: bicycle talent

When visiting China we saw the acrobats and they had the bicycles. Up to 5 bikes running in a circle on a little stage doing most of those stunts, sometimes with more than one girl on the bike. Really amazing stuff.

Re: bicycle talent

Why is all the "good stuff" always blocked at work. I guess I'll have to wait until I get home.

Re: bicycle talent

Holy Crap! A backwards wheelie!! That is impressive as hell. In a weird way it reminds me of those dudes in the X-games who do the flatland BMX tricks--insane stuff as well.

Osiris, can you do that stuff? You still have a Haro, right?

Re: bicycle talent

She definitely has the talent, but she'll need much cooler music if she wants to compete in the X Games (which start next Thursday by the way).

Re: bicycle talent

I can't say that the performance is a shock to me. Don't get me wrong, that girl has talent. I am just an old BMX freestyler that tried that stuff as a kid. I've seen those style performances many times by kids.

Here's the part I'm amazed with; It's a Beach Bike with 26" wheels. That to me is insane. We used to ride 20" bikes designed specifically for freestyle. That thing has to weigh as much as she does.

To me it looked like the special bikes they use for that purpose, and only that purpose. When upright on the rear wheel, everything is lined up down to the wheel like a unicycle. Could be wrong, but I bet it is pretty light and very well balanced.

You may be right.

Hey, I've been wrong before. I'm married, that in itself claims a perpetual state of me being wrong.

Yeah, I still have it, but I can't do much of any of that. I can do some flatland tricks, but falling on bikes always hurt way worse than falling off a skateboard, so I mostly used the bike to get to skate spots

Re: bicycle talent

I'm a reformed b-x-m'er and former bicycle shop mechanic. Her bike was a stubby road/track bike. It had the whole fixed gear and everything. The wheelies and riding on the head tube and stuff was pretty basic flat-land stuff, the impressive thing was freaking balancing on the handle-bars facing backwards!!! I have never seen anything like that!

Re: bicycle talent

it looks like they used a track bike which probably weighs less than 20lbs, but i'm sure she's glad to be a girl when doing some of those crotch smashing tricks though.
