    Wheelieman, was that you?

    Wheelieman, was that you yesterday *burnt orange bike* at the corner of Dean Keeton/26th and San Jac (12:30ish) doing nose wheelies and other cool moves while waiting for the light to change? Likely you were just doing what you do, but it was a very nice piece of impromptu street corner theater. Def gave my day a lift.

    Well yes indeed it was! One of the spots I can't pass up.

    What is that nose wheelie move where you tap your rear wheel on the retaining wall? I'm sure it has a name. Anyway, thanks for making an ordinary campus errand soooo much better. Normally I have to content myself with seeing how fast I can spot fixie riders or scanning bike racks to see if anyone is riding anything interesting.
    Cheers

    I call it a stall, but I've never been good with trick names. What should we name it? My goal is to stick it and just hang there for a few seconds before letting it drop, but its only every so often that it truly works.

    I thought I was off for doing that. Thanks for the validation!
