 Thanks for your concern gents, I should put more thought into these comments. I did not realize I was being graded on this assignment....

 VPS13 I didn't know we weren't allowed to share our opinions on pinkbike and I will try to make sure that mine matches yours spot on because I would hate to be considered a moron

 Elanto, he's performing a flair as if the wall was a quarter pipe.

 @ isokayimadoctor Haha I said the exact same thing before even reading that comment.

 Since we all love grammar and spelling so much (I know I do) - as well as etymology - can someone confirm for me if the word is:

'Flair' - as in the sh*t Jennifer Aniston has to wear in Office Space

or

'Flare' as in the maneuver an aircraft does right before landing. Or a burning torch-light gizmo.

 I vote for "Flare" like the wicked 70s pants.......or maybe super huge "Flare" like a massive EMP emitting solar flare.

 Dammit just looked it up, its "Flair"

 By "looking it up" you mean you found a video some guy made of riding a BMX bike in a skatepark?
  • + 3
 Doing "Flairs" in a video called "How to Flair" that I found on a google search for Flair BMX Trick, as I am certain that BMX was the first discipline of cycling to do a Flair.

All other types of "Flare" are not bike tricks.

So If you wanted a more detailed description of "looking it up" I could show hundreds of findings, but I figured I would just show an example of a guy who can do pretty good Flairs and spells it F L A I R.

More concise?

 You win.

 Thanks, in it to win it! Smile

 Flair stands for an backFLip and Quaterair, now the Nicknames "Flip" and "Air" and now together = "FLAIR" !!! Cheers Wink

 Mystery over! That is good information, thanks!

 Yea no doubt he's got the sickest flairs not to mention all his other tricks
  • + 1
 Or maybe a flail, front flip flair

 That's a sick pic but a little confusing

 Where's the shadows?
  • + 1
 It's Ludwig Jäger, the king of flairs on mtb's. He'll flair anything, even 1 foot high street banks. Sickest skatepark rider of the moment in my opinion. No doubt that this is real and landed
  • + 2
 Observing the angle of the grid shadows I would assume it might be out of frame on the left...
  • + 1
 for sure it is real and he landed it too!!!
