Thats cool, people do plenty of things I could care less about on bikes as well.

The Bummer part is they do school shows with this set up. If this was the first instance of BMX I ever saw I would never touch a BMX bike again.

Attention Ray's MTB park - you need one of these. Replace that stupid MOAB room.


We tried with an old car inner tube, but we kept messing up the height. Sometimes when set up for one guy, the next wouldn't even touch ground. But we were also trying with a big swingset, so our arc wasn't enough. They have it dialed. I would ride the heck out of that.


I thrashed your grail, and I loved every second of it.

Hey, really looks like it would be something fun to do in the front yard when you get bored.

We did this back in ~'89-90 too - super fun!  I just got a few old photos of it from a friend of mine - I'll try to get a couple posted soon.  The real thing is much more fun of course, but this was a nice diversion and a cool way to try out some tricks that we couldn't do for real.  smile

First time I've seen this.  Too cool!  If these were out in the early 80's, I would have never come home when the street lights came on!
