I know Ross Smith gets all the credit for rolling straddle-roni walkovers, but you'll see Steve doing it toward the end of this video. Back in 95??

Hmmm..

Steve was/is super underrated.

Howard said...

Rick Moliterno was doing them in 88 Pete

I love straddle roni's, good bit of trivia here boys... who invented the straddle-roni?

Oh, I was referring to multiples.

Jffe, www.pedalbmx.com, november 2005 : The first guy in a magazine doing rope-a-roni's was Chris Day oddly enough, but if Kevin Jones said he made it up before that, I'd put my bet on Jones. Things were happening/progressing way too fast from 88' til about 91'. Rick Moliterno had turned pro, and did the first straddle-roni at an AFA comp in early 1988, and at that same comp, Gerry Smith and Chris Day were both working on forward rope-a-ronis,

Moliterno yeah E you were right,Yeah Pete multiples not sure maybe Ross Smith ,E may know.

Ross was the only one I ever saw do multiples until yesterday, maybe Mulder would be able to shed some light on that one...

Yo E, I had made up the double straddle as far as I knew and was so stoked about it, then my friend Roman went to a Chicago comp and saw Ross doing it, I was bummed, and just kinda dropped the trick since I wanted to do original stuff and he got it out there first, kinda mental eh? Ha ha...

I know for a fact that I saw Steve do these in 1988, and for the record he was doin' McCoy style buzzsaw into them.

Brian said...

What video was this footage taken from?? For some reason I always assumed Steve took a break from riding in the mid 90's. I sure was wrong. Great Stuff!

Thanks for sharing that info Steve! Dope trick whoever did it first, props to you and Ross, I honestly think this trick is timeless, bit like whiplashes, still a very untapped area of flatland.
