Is popping the NRG's front tire a thing?
« on: February 23, 2020, 04:45:38 AM »
As I just found out, Mr. Taz uploaded a live stunt compilation vid, and in several of his clips he's using a bike with the front wheel deflated.

TAZ's VID HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89vM4FCE_Wg

What is the purpose of that? I'm guessing better bumps? After all this years... that technique it's a new thing to me.

Thanks!

It helps a little with speed since the tire has some weight I suppose and therefore you may aim higher or further with it, but honestly in my opinion it doesn't make that much of a difference, but yes, if you pop the tire, it might help eventually

-just experiment on the spots taz used a popped tire on, if you use a speedometer you will clearly feel and see the difference between a popped front tire compared to a normal front tire on certain spots
-it also allows you to do crazy stuff with wallrides meaning they are much longer and sometimes you just stuck into a wall for a long amount of time(an example for that would be enfermo finisher)
