Yes, I like they way you think!!

Actually when I was little I raced BMX for SE racing for a bit (this is 1996ish). I ended up snapping a mini ripper in half, and somebody said that there was something in a pamphlet (or something) about a PK ripper snapping a mini ripper frame. Though I've never saw it personally. 15years later I still wish I could have seen what it said. =[

Well constructed edit. You should try to buy some "PK RIPPER" reproduction SE bike stickers.

After a long cold winter Phil Kmetz made the trip out to Cranx Bike Park in Syracuse NY to see what this place is all about. The park is filled with long flowy lines, hips, tables and big wall rides that both MTBers and BMXers can enjoy.

Added a comment about video World's First Bri Flip on a Mountain Bike? 1/11/2014 2:27 PM

With a bike flip, one hand is removed from the bars and the bike pivots around the hand that is still on the bars. A bri flip, both hands stay on the bars at all times. It's a trick that originated in scootering (is that a word?).

This video helps give you the gist of it.

Eric Carter is the man, he was a huge help back when I was part of his tribe. Genuinely nice guy.

Anyway I wanna say that's a BMX racing thing. I noticed I have a elbows down style at times too, and I think it stems from the fact that in bmx you're not really absorbing rough terrain like you are in MTB.
