follow up to yesterday’s post: trials vs. parkour

23 04 2009

Since I don’t actually get any comments on my blog, I have to live vicariously through the comment sections of other, more popular (and admittedly better) blogs — especially when I’m reblogging the same material as them or they are reblogging the same material as me. Anyway, the initial comments on Neatorama when they posted the MacAskill bike video were all like “wow it’s like parkour on bikes” and then cranky retorters were all like “don’t call this parkour on bikes, man – trials riding was around way longer!”

It was an interesting question (at least by internet standards, where the most heated debates often revolve around people’s favorite Naruto characters).

Soooo…which came first? Bipedal tricks? Or bicycle tricks?
