Got a quick pic of Chase's bike, and talked with him about it. He runs three different cassette rings, (says he stays mostly in the one it's in in the pic) but he can then shift it onto the plastic spacers for a "neutral gear" so when he lands fakie, the chain just slides on the spacers and the pedals don't turn. Brilliant!

Thats actually REALLY clever. Thanks for putting that up. I love seeing good ideas that people use to help them with things.

yeah he has been doing that for awhile, I remeber when I met him two years ago in Ashville he was running that stuff. He is a really cool dude, and he always has a bored look on his face while riding because he is so good.

Shoot, V-Dub was doing that three years ago . . . seriously, he was. If you watch his parts in Union and Jib you'll see him shift at the last second before landing anything switch.
No kidding, and I remember there being a bunch of arguements when those movies came out as to whether it was cheap to shift onto a spacer on the cassette or not.

Remember those everybody?
