    Amazing MAN

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=NwUc5RnvfPE&feature=related

    this can bring a tear to your eye..some people are so amazing!!!

    I wonder how much that cost though? In England it would probably cost stupid money for something like that!

    That is awesome, its crazy how it took someone who was into mountain biking to design a prosthetic leg like that.

    Here's my buddy Evan. I had the pleasure of riding in Santa Cruz with him once or twice, and Northstar with him this past summer of 2007.

    He's an amazing guy, and in a pack of 8 or 9 of us, he was the fastest out of all of us.

    Very cool stuff. I'm always amazed to see guys doing with one leg what I can't with two good ones. I didn't even know it was possible to skateboard with a prosthetic!

    DOPE! Mad respect! Also it's an awesome leg the one he built! Reminds me of Man w/o hand, he has also my mad respect!

    Bright side: He doesn't need shin guards.

    Agree with tacu, no more shin guards. And when you break it, you don't double up in pain.

    Really amazing, I wonder if he has RC2 damping on his leg... Or ProPedal!

    Thats so kick a$$, I second everything yall are saying. I saw somewhere where it said that he was a inspirational speaker. I would totally pay to hear his story. The dude should write a book. It would be a must read!
