what are those things on bilkos bike?

Recommended Posts

I cant see the picture right now, but im pretty certain your talking about the freestyle handles because bilkos a freestytler. They help the rider when doing a backflip so you dont flip all the way around the bars. Helps with back flip variations to.

I forget what they are called but they are there to keep him from flinging forward over the bars on the bike when he flips or does a KOD or other tricks

superflip bars. I think Jeremy Lusk's dad made them and sold them to all the guys. Needed when doing an off the bike flip like a ruler flip to pull the bike back.

Sorry not with the thread, but I don't think gloves will make much difference!

He doesn't use them because he doesn't do KOD flips or superflips.

Exactly... when the rider is at/near full forward extension (over the handlebars), these bars will press on the back of the wrist/arm and the rider can apply as much/little pressure as needed to bring the bike back around underneath them at the right time, depending on the trick.

did he make those super flip bars or was it the pegs that flipped down hydraulically above their feet/pegs so they could do no handed backflips? or maybe lusks dad did invent/make both?

I may have them mixed up. I think I remember hearing in a vid that he kept seeing riders just rig some bars out of scrap metal and they always looked sketchy so he made the first that actually folded away. I know for sure he did the foot things.👍
