He's been talking about getting one of those. Does more natural mean bouncy or just less hover-ey?

Oh and I did a pedal strike endo tonight. I hadn't done that in years. Down stroke on a hidden stump and bam, ass over tea cup. No harm no foul.

Very cool!

A smaller bike I see. Easier to hop higher I reckon. Why pedal backwards while riding backwards, I wonder. It looks like a freewheel hub, right?

I could actually hear that music. That part where he rode the hand rail was impressive. Its a trick bike I'm sure.

I think the back-pedal is just a mental trick for balance. From the look of my body today, I may need to be more subtle like that.

Wait, if the backpedal is for balance, what's propelling him backwards? Momentum?

I'd have to look closely but you can pump a bike without engaging the drive train. It's a bmx thing where you amplify the momentum with downward pressure. This is way outside my knowledge base but pump tracks are a thing. I assume you (if your name is Danny McCaskill) can do this backwards as well as forwards.
