This is exactly the type of stuff I would love to do...lots of cool "old school" tricks can mixed up with newer stuff..like that guy on Ground Tactics with the dumptruck to mcapplecrate?

This kind of stuff has the gears turning in my head big-time...if only I could bend the laws of time and physics to get on my bike more often!

Great stuff, I'm gonna watch it again right now.

1998 is old school now? oh man!

Love all the scrambled leg stuff.  And decade to rope a roni always catches me off guard.  

I believe he is riding a General RL sig frame?

If this is "old school", some of us might be pre-historic school.   :P

But yeah, this is some amazing riding, no matter what school it is.  Very technical, and some combos I haven't seen before.  Simply amazing.

As a side note...don't think this is a General Osborne Pro...as the Osborne Pro has the 990's under the chain stays...not the seat stays as this bike has.  I think it's a Haro Ground Master.

Anyone else notice the seat slightly offset, so you can hook your leg underneath for Locomotives?  Anyone remember this old school trick to setting up your bike?

Two thumbs up on this vid.  Ah...the power of brakes.

Same here. I had a total "what the........f*ck?" moment. It's a nice link.
It truly is a romance of many dimensions, isn't it?

if its 1998, i believe he's riding a 'dragonfly MC' frame or maybe the longer version 'double dynamite'.  ;D  these frames are rare...

the way the his rear cable stops are set up , and the square-ish brace between the twin-top tubes in the centre before the seat tube brace, and the gusset at the bb and seatstays = df mc ...
the masters (haro zippos as they were know by then) have chainstays 990 mounts and 2" 'megatubes' downtubes. the tubes sizes are alot slimmer on the 'oldskol' masters

Yea, this was posted a while back.  It's an awesome clip and thought I'd post it again.  What's cool is that I've never heard of this guy and never seen anyone link some of those tricks like that before.

tod., i prefer to say not pre-historic school, but we built THE SCHOOL. kids just come to us to learn. and like most kids now a days, they don't respect people who are older, wiser, and have been in their shoes. i digress. yeah, we built that bitch.
