things you can never do with a fixed freestyle bike: Lahsaan Kobza

Shadow Welcomes Lahsaan Kobza from Shadow Conspiracy on Vimeo.

first of all i would like to 1) give a warning that there's no fixed gear stuff in this video and 2) congratulate Lahsaan for getting on the shadow team. after watching this, i thought for a bit- alot of this stuff cant be done with a fixed freestyle bike. now that brings up 2 things: 1) fixed freestyle is influenced by bmx, but you cant do all these bmx tricks on a fixed gear (especially at lahsaans speed! damn that fool is HELLA FASS.) 2) there ARE some fixed freestyle tricks that are soley done on a fixed gear. it's nothing new but i would really like to see a mid-air rear wheel tap or even a toothpick. anyway, if you like fast paced bmx riding- you'll like lahsaan's steez. that gap at the end is NUTS. oh and i believe he is riding brakeless! and yes, i'm one of those believers of brakeless bmx being alot more smooth.
