Thanks to Nicolas Curie we can continue to bring you more BMX comics. This one has all the instructions on how to do a nose manual. You see, Nicolas is a BMX rider from the Blockhaus posse from France and nowadays a trainer of 150 BMX Kids in Troyes. He teaches kids how to do tricks and have fun on their bikes on a daily basis.
