Rodney Williams: Short Line Posted on December 22, 2020 by Effraim — 20 Comments ↓ By Rodney William’s standards this is a short line, love ho stoked he is mid line in this one. More power to Rodney!
YES!!!!!!!! Big ups to the straddle k assassin Rodney Mega Link Williams! Bro the mid link kid in a candy store smile is priceless. What a feel good clip. Thank you to Rodney for shredding and sharing, and E for putting it up so we can enjoy as always. Its almost 11pm here and I dont want to sleep and get up for work, much rather wake up and find somewhere to ride so I can eventually bust 1min long links. You da man Rodney!!!!
B.Z. !! My comment to ya never made it through here …….the site said it was waiting on moderation ??! Hahaha, anyway…….I REALLY , REALLY appreciate your words , campeon ! You’re a new school , turbine style , RIPPER on BOTH wheels of your bike , and I could only WISH to have THAT kind of skill / flavor to my own riding ……only in dreams , I guess ! Please re-post the link to that riding edit that you posted a couple months ago ! I wanna post that edit on my F.B. account . Speaking of…….are you on there ? I’d like to link up with you on any form of social media , bruv ! My smile was a lil bit of relief , haha……finally re-learning that trick , then finally putting it in a lil combo ! It was November 1998 , when I first kind of half ass did a pedal cowboy squeak , haha ! Again B.Z. , you are a TRUE core RIPPER ,and I would be STOKED / HONORED for you to post even MORE of your riding online. All that turbine stuff is just eye candy , and so dope to watch and really ,really tough to learn , progress at ,and much less dial in ! I’ve messed with BASIC Mc Circles for over 20 YEARS ……..and they’re STILL kind of hucked and hit or miss ,haha……the stuff / lines you lay down are SLLLLAAMMMED , TIMES 7 !!
Yes Rodney,I used to call it the puppy love squeak for no reason other than high as a mo fo ♂️
Hahahaha ! It’s all chill , Amos ! Trick names emerge in lots of unique scenarios ! Props / respect to ya Amos, for riffing the chill outta Flatland , SLLLLAMMMING this move DOOOOWWWWWN , getting into it from WHIPLASHES ! Your H.B. beach session days ,back in Summer of 1997 REALLY produced some vital innovation to the sport , bruv ! Any footage of ya on that Red Sabbath frame with the silver tube steak pegs , Castillo bars ………PLEEEAASE upload ANY of it ! That’s the first videos that I saw of your riding , mate !!
Thank you TIMES 7 , Big-E !! I was STOKED to FINALLY pull this move …..that YOU ,Degroot , and Amos SLLLLAAMMMMED in EARLY 1996 ,haha !! That’s where the smile came from , haha , FINALLY putting it in a lil link ! Couldn’t even ride into it , waaaaaaay back in November of 1998 , when I first learned it, kind of half ass , haha…….I appreciate the post , Effraim ……and MORE POWER to YOU, being not only BACK in the game overcoming serious injury , but ALSO …..working on your NEW edit !! To think you would 360 bar flip these , brakeless bar flip them , etc ,etc, …….to START your combos in early 2000 / late 1999 !! Thanks again , E !
It’s a case of stop start stop start, injury is still there sadly, stretching everyday doing what I can. Rad to others like yourself Rodney doing things with the cowboy squeak, still so much to do. Im years in, and find new things…. Keep on digging Rodney!
Prayers going up for your injury to ease up more …..so ya can SLLLLAAAAAMMMM DOWN your edit , E !! I’ll try and dig some more . there’s one that I wanna try with the floating Kerry-K bar flips and a pedal-K.. …….we’ll see , I guess , haha. I wanna try and just do a 180 bar flip cowboy squeak ……but I’m scared , hahahaha ! It’s SO ill ,you doing 360 , BRAKELESS multiple bar flips and countless other concepts with the cowboy squeak , that drop down to hitchhiker was friggin MINT in your F.M. Exclusive video clip , Effraim ! It’s VERY safe to say that you OWN ……PEDAL cowboy squeaks , TIMES 7 ! Doing em SINGLE kick , bar flipping to Messiah’s , half and hitchhikers , and just about ANY variation / transition ……..yeah , they’re YOURS alright , haha…..CHEERS , E !! Just the basic bar small position , holding it …..that’s tricky enough to me , haha……that’s why I put it at the END of this lil line, and IMMEDIATLY dropped to exit , hahahahahaha !!
Judging by the Title and Rodney s style, Was expecting 10min link to be frank
Hahahaha ! You’re correct George !! Long lines are my jam , haha…….it’s just that Pedal cowboy squeaks are very difficult …..to me anyway ! I actually juuuuuuust learned how to finally get into them , then put them in this very small combo , haha…….this was more about just linking a pedal cowboy squeak ……..cause the last time I kind of half ass did one ,all sketchy / hucked ……was in early November of 1998 , haha…………I was just happy to combo it , even just a lil bit !!
Hermano! Your short line is my long line! Ahaha! Timeless the cowboy squeak…. Keep them coming amigo!
Giannis , BMX KING of Greece ……….my long lines are NOTHING to your INFINITE tricktionary , on your bike , cabrone ! 112 EDITS ! 112 ! Yeah , pedal cowboy squeaks are sweet , wish I had em ON LOCK ,with multiple variations like , Effraim ! Giannis ! Your 112 EDIT was SLLLAAAAAAMMMED DOWN , TIMES 7 . One legged , NO handed , X-leg -ONE legged -hitchhikers AND back packers , mixed with all kinds of signature , difficult ,rolling HAMMER lines ! Better believe I posted it on my F.B. account ! Salud on ANOTHER ground breaking edit, EVOVLING the sport / art form , campeon !
So nice to see the man & his riding who’s behind so much energy in enthusiasm in the comments. Agree with BZ, above, that smile mid link was great!
Thank you , Scott !! Your Flatland documentation on your Vimeo channel AND your riding are SO great for the sport as well , bruv !! I look forward to seeing even MORE of BOTH from you ! Smiling can take the edge off of FINALLY learning and linking a trick that has been kicking your ass ……since 1998 , hahaha…..well , for me anyway !!
Yes Rodney! Nice and sweet line from the smiling machine 😉
Doing such a «short » line probably makes you more human for most of us (like normal riders)!
Thank you for this, clean and tech as usual!!
Thank you Renaud ! I had no choice , haha ! Pedal cowboy squeaks have whooped my wack ass since 1998 , November , haha ! So yup …….FINALLY putting it in a short combo was the only option , haha . I can’t do em mid-line AT ALL , hahahaha……only at the end of lil combos ,haha . This was only the second time I linked it ! I’M VERY HUMAN , I sketch / screw up on things ALL THE TIME , even though I’ve BEEN doing them for MANY moons , hahaha .Plus , unlike YOU ….my riding level is no where near YOURS …….and I’ve BEEN riding BMX Flatland WAAAAAAAY longer than you , haha .100 percent of YOUR stuff is ALOT harder than mine ! Also ,thank you ,again ……I try and keep it as clean and tech , trying to imitate Effraim’s OLD stuff from 1996 , hahaha…..YOU rule , Renaud ! KEEP ripping the pavement to pieces , with your HIGH LEVEL combos ……on BOTH wheels !!
Yeah Rodney! That pedal cowboy will always be a great looking move–looks like you got it super dialed!
Thank you , Brandon ! I love these , but it STILL has me in check , haha ! Your BACKWARDS rolling crack , half , and back packer juggle links are BEYOND timeless and will be EPIC …….20 YEARS from now !!
Yeeha, nothin wrong with this link Rodney. I like it all. The bar flippin on non drive side, reminds me of Nate Hanson a bit. Keep on shreddin.
Thank you , Tristan ! You’re preaching to the choir ! NATE HANSON is one of my many influences as a rider . Along with Jason Brown R.I.P. , , Andrew Arroyo , Leo Dumlao , Nathan Penonzek , Ed Egawa , Paul Osicka , Genjiro Ishimura , etc , etc !! The Kobain scuff/ leap over to right cross elephant glide @ the start of this lil combo……..THAT is NATE HANSON’S switch from mid -1994 , haha !! You keep shredding also , Tristan ! Please post ANY of YOUR riding , mate !
You’re welcome Rodney.
