Ignoring the fact I cant really bunny hop more than a couple of inches, I just cannot understand how people can hop up walls higher than I could jump without a bike!

I also dont understand how he managed some of the drops, I mean that one flight of stairs into an underpass or something must have been a 15 foot drop and he landed it flat with no suspension. My ankles would have shattered and my wrists!

Wonder how many faceplants, broken wrists and arms he got in the years compiling all those stunts.

Kids got skills, but I bet he doesnt know how to win an arguement with my missus after a night out on the lash with the lads...

That my friend takes years of learning, injuries, and bottle.

I am so glad it's not just me that thinks that when I see this type of rider sticking two fingers up to the laws of gravity.

Sometimes it feels as if everyone else on a bike can leap onto the top of a bus shelter just by shrugging their shouulders.

That was an awesome video, makes me wish i was riding a bike all my youth instead of windsurfing. Oh no hang on windsurfing round the world was much cooler than biking in Edinburgh. I'm still insanely jealous of his skills though, the other night at Blean i fully cleared a two inch twig...

Same as you Steve, makes me want a little bike i can throw around of an evening. BMX maybe here i come... Actually now i think about it all i ever wanted was a BMX when i was a kid. I went to the bike shop with my Dad one birthday and walked out with a Raleigh Striker. As the salesman told him it was more sensible! Imagine the looks on the other kids when i rocked up on a bike with mudguards... Shocking times, i was scarred for life. Still it was a bike and i loved it non the less. Never managed to jump it as it weighed a ton! Just done a search on google but can't find an image of the original version.  Sad
