Wow...I don't think I have ever seen a bike act like that before. Good thing he was properly clothed while stunting...

Doc:
Its really a pretty common way to mess up a stoppie. As someone once said, if your front wheel locks up while you are up in the air, only god can help you.

Yeah, his brakes and his discs had a bit of a biff, hey? Not a snowball's chance in hell of winning that argument.

Listen again, and watch closer. Ain't shyit wrong with his brakes or technique. His front tire popped. Thats Grant from KC's most wanted. He made a big long explanation post of what happened on another board I'm on. The squeeling noise wasn't his brakes, it was air leaking out of the front tire. Then the "bang/pop" noise is the tire blowing. If you watch you can see the front end get lofted into the air a bit from it and thats what causes the bike to flip. Still sucks though... I think he made it out with some bruises and a broken pinky if I remember correctly.

Damn roadstain, you are indeed correct. I was wondering what would couse a bike to actually come up in the air before flipping over.
Great, there is another thing to be paranoid about when pulling a stoppie...
