Fixed Freestyle Scene Report: Cadence Seattle 2007

Without digging up the obvious MASH trailer, this Cadence video is what, a few years ago, I would have called “West Coast style”. Lots of skid variations and then Keo at the end with the crowd-pleasing wheel-grab wheelie. My mind was blown!

Around this time, I think of Philly being a polarizing opposition to this. Not in any dogmatic way, just in an approach. The West was about treating the track bike as a delicate object and the East was about BMX influence. Remember the Cadence East Coast video with Tom and Bean? Too bad it’s been taken down. Even in Bootleg Sessions 1, it was clear what the two coasts were about.
