My non-car video



For those of you who don't know, I'm a technical cyclist, I was making a short little vid of me (for sponsorship/resume purposes), just wanted some opinions....

BTW, it's not totally done yet (really abrupt ending) and one slow motion scene is too slow

Let me know...

Nelson.....!

That is truly AWSOME!!!!!! shit, I watched it like 4 times. I can appreciate the skill involved (did some tricks once-upon a time on my Hutch). How light is your bike? You make it seem like less than 19lbs, but it looks like it's about 25+lbs. Did you wipe bad for any of those film shots? Keep up the good work and please.... share more if you gotz!

Thanks, I try

The bike the way it was setup in the video was around 24lbs or so. Luckily no, I didn't crash a for any of those shots, if I had, they would've been in the video.

One of my teammates was actually at the Darknights show doing stuff around the halfpipe area.

This is the only other vid of me that I have on my computer...

I'm the tall guy with the black jeans.

As far as dirt jumping with a hardtail, all I can say it that it's better to use a hardtail then a full suspension. But if you want the easiest cheapest way to learn, get yourself a BMX/freestyle bike.

For actualy pointers, I'm really bad at explaining myself, I just think jump, and I do.

Nope, we were just another half time act, they were cool though, and the folks at the ACC treated us really nice.

But I got to hang out with the Raptors dance pack though, too bad they're all like 16 (but eye candy nontheless).

I kinda got in trouble for leaving rubber swirls all over the court from spinning around, oh well.

By the way, a lot of the player have very good taste in vehicles. Lexus, Mercs, BMWs, Porsches. A few done up to look very "bling bling" though.
