Nothing to say. This is epic. John really caught that OH SHIT moment when you have to bail out of a nose manual. Anyone that does these knows the feeling!

Thanks John! Much more to come.

Tom LaMarche: Epic Nose Manual

    I’m assuming the he wasn’t in the straps here, or we be seeing a gnarly face plant. ouch!

    I was super siked on my hold fast’s when i first got them, and still love them for city riding, but when I’m doing tricks or just riding round in circles backwards i never use foot retention.

    Yeah Johnny! Rad pic from a rad dude…

  • prolly

    He sure was in the straps. We all ride in the foot retention. That’s the point. Once you figure out how to bail, it’s not an issue.
