By now you have no doubt seen the video of a rider pulling a backflip on a fixed gear that was going around all day causing people to puddle in their pants. No doubt it is an extraordinary feat…a move I could only dream of doing.
The thing is though, doing flips on bikes, atvs, and motorcycles is the line where riding stops being stylish and starts being circus.
There I said it…again. I hate flips.
Fixed Gear Freestyle? I am all for it…have been since the get go…but flips…uh, no thanks.
BONUS LEVEL: I hate that stupid “Big Air” ramp on X-Games also.
