FELT riders Michael Sommer and Scotty Cranmer have got a video up on the feltbmx.com website. Michael's video is long and super funny, especially if you know how to speak German. They put some effort into that one. Clip number two is the Scotty Cranmer show. You know that guy has some tricks up his sleeve and the clip had me shake my head a few times in disbelief. Just when you think that the flairs can't be taken any further it's Cranmer pushing it one step further. Curious?
