Bombing.

by

Bomb Hills Speed Kills just posted a great write up on ‘The death of the hill bomber’ due to the great rise in popularity of the freestyle trick rider.

I think its because hill bombing is assumed to be an activity calling for little to no skill and therefore, doesn’t have that wow factor. but regardless of that notion, hill bombing is still exhilarating no matter what kind of fixed gear the bombing takes place on. risers, and the low gear ratio of a fixed freestyle machine- not all is lost. as long as there are no brakes and there are fixed cogs, bombing has purpose.

Well worth a read and I for one agree, hell it is why I got into this sort of riding in the first place!

Seen at Leeds Fixed via BHSK.
Jmik – Loving your work BTW.

    It’s probably because bombing a hill his scary as all hell and actually requires some balls.

    thanks for the mention!

    tom: i concur. it’s even scarier when you’re pushing 40 and still pedaling to go faster! speed is not fear, it is motivation my friend.
