Nasty! // The Rise

WRAHW Welcomes Nasty from Torey Thornton on Vimeo.

Nasty from Japan seems to be the one and only guy at the moment who's at least trying to bring some speed into the equation here. Compare any of the recent clips I've been posting here to any BMX video out there and even if the tricks on big fixed bikes are all the time getting more and more technical and even bigger, you cannot help thinking how clumsy the sh*t looks like most of time. No speed = no flow, no style. Simple as that.

And just for the conversation's sake and in reference to Prolly's post yesterday, let me state here that people getting 26" wheels, mickey mouse gearing, smaller or compact frames and whatnot is cheating if you're rolling fixed ATMO. You might as well get a BMX cruiser or a dirt jump bike then...
