Yea fixie is harder than I thought it was gonna be… definitely takes a different rhythm.
Here’s pretty much every fixie trick I know in 16 seconds, lol. I could do them all over and over and over for hours. Feels good.
Same. I have been trying to learn fixed up the throws need so much more finesse.
Sure is. He told me that too. Must have fell out of my skull .
So I’ve been thinking of what to play if I was to participate in DeHcade (…) next year. I would probably choose this Play Simply No Jive, I have several No Jives, but this one is has that broken in feeling and has gone through a few axles. It just has a great balance between power and finesses. This particular one weights in around 59 grams, which is still on the heavier side , even for these later No Jives releases in the mid-2010s. I’ve also been playing this one with a Zipline Kot-N SE, which kind of feels like Markmont Dragon and has lasted me longer than any other cotton sting I can recently remember.
I came across this @unklesteve 365 video this week of him playing responsive with a FAST 201. If you are having trouble with stalls or looking to mix it up, this Interruption combo and concept is fun to play around with.
That gorgeous No Jive @Exmime – it’s a thing of beauty! Absolutely no chance of locating one in the UK though…
Here’s mine: a mid-90s Maple Leaf reissue
The fixed axle stuff always looks really fun. Makes me wish I held on to the yoyos I started with back in school.
This guy today. I think for next year’s dEhcade, I will chase fixie Spirit Bomb. Of course I will still just play yoyo, but, will have something to challenge me as well.
Grab a butterfly from your local big box store and get to it!
Nice bike / yoyo combo!
Beers and throws
Happy Friday my fixie friends! Surprisingly enough I’ve found myself tossing a classic imperial shape this week with the BC Lightning. Loops like a dream and has great consistent response. Honestly stalls aren’t that bad on imperials imo as long as you use reasonable precision. I always feel like once I get it in the flow I hit pretty consistently
