Taking a Sledgehammer to the flat scene

Joe Cicman and Danny Sirkin threw down some serious flatland moves on a 24″ last year in two installments of TwoFourFlat.

Well, they’re back at it again.

This time taking a 26″ Volume Sledgehammer through its paces and teaching the big bike some new tricks.

Sometimes I miss front brakes

28 06 2010

The recent comments about front brakes have got me thinking.

Is it time to put the front brakes back on?

It wasn’t too long ago that just about every freestyle rider rode front and rear brakes…now the pendulum has swung the other way with many riders seeing brakeless bikes as the new standard.

Have things gone too far?

Are we missing out by running just a rear brake or no brakes at all?

Before you answer, check out the videos below.
