    I can bunny hop over one, use them as a gap to clear(bunny hopping over the width of a sidewalks is fun, it really helps) stalls of all types are fun(abubacas, fufanu attemps, tire taps) bunny hop to manual practice.

    Lots of stuff can be done off curbs, 180's, nose manuals to manual

    Endos. You can also hop the front on it and let the back tire go "rrrrrrr" on on the curb and hop off.

    yeah, like WestCoastHucker said, I can pinch flat on curbs really sweet. looks so smooth.

    alright, I know this board already shows the guy enough praise as it is, even though he's a bmx'er (and I've dug his style for quite some time before even seeing it on the net), but, anybody seen how Hamilton can use the square edge of curbs or the first step on staircases, to straight boost off of that with his rear tire?!? even though it's square edged and he only has 20inchers!!! he just manuals up to staircases super super fast, or bunny hops, forcing the rear tire onto the square edge, then boosts the rear tire off the first step and lands on top of the set.... amazing...

    so yeah, what I wrote above was my result of trying to learn this... my super fast manual into a curb in order to try to boost it just resulted in a pinch flat, haha.... must be nice to have some mad skills straight off the bat.

    heh, yeah, but I've tried similar things on my Wethepeople bmx bike with a Snafu Rimjob rear tire and 120psi... and I separated the wire bead from the sidewall... just split about an inch and had a funky bulge in the sidewall.... could have been a manufacturer defect though cuz I'm not that heavy. I was pretty damn suprised.

    You guys ever picture yourself jumping, flowing, and styling over everything while looking out the passenger window going down the road? I've been doing that since I was kid. Guess it shows how much I would rather be on my bike than in the car.

    You are weird and so am I and so is prolly 95% of the guys on this board. I'm always looking down alley's, deep in parking lots to find banks, curbs and ledges. Actually I found a couple this morning that I'm thinking of hitting at lunch or after work. Great finding a new spot, it has that nice fresh new smell. The new spots I find in downtown tho still smell like urine.

    Taking unplanned detours behind buildings just to see if there is something good back there? Recon drives are the best!
