It is a shame that some one would even ask that question.You must either be young or doent't ride your bike that much.It's all about having fun.If you feel like riding whatever form of biking there is,do it and doen't worrie about which is better.

It's all in opinion.
Flatlanding- more technical and can get annoying if u can't get a trick right
Dirt- hurts a lot more but air is fun!!!!!!

I like Dirt, but i have a great respect for good Flatland riders, as there is a lot more concentration and discipline involved in it.

They can't even be compared because they are so different. The patience required to be good at flatland is the hardest thing to develop. I've ridden both and i prefer street, but flatland comes next. Late.
well, really it is all a matter of opnion, as some of u said befor me..that true and also, a dirt rider unless he is not bias will say dirt is better, same thing goes for a flat rider...alot of u are bias

My username says it all, but I have respect for any rider...it all takes skill and we are all in the same boat.

all of you bob knobbers who say that dirt or flat land is better either you dont ride or ur just gay. a real rider would know that its all your personal opinion on whats better. i personally like street and dirt but i have a lot of respect to the flatlanders because it takes a lot of skill to do that shiz i wouldnt even know how to go about that take it from me i tryed both and ended up liking street but its all up to u
d 130 rules :p

I prefer dirt but that may because thats they onlything I've ever ridden plus I got dirtjumps in my backyard
04-09-02, 08:00 AM
hum i ride flatland and i love it , just for the fact that i have good balance on my bike. but like many said it is all your opinon its kool to watch a good street rider ride or a dirt rider jump .

HOW'S IT GOIN?
I USED TO RIDE DIRT... KINDA STOPPED WHEN I COPPED A HANDEL BAR IN MY GUT... IT WASNT MINE WEITHER :eek:
EVER SINCE THEN STREET HAS BEEN HOME.... I GUESS I LIKE TO STAY CLOSER TO THE GROUND SINCE THAT MID AIR STACK.....
WHAT EVER GUYS, TRY EM BOTH, DIRT IS FOR SLOW BMX RIDERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!! :p

personally i like doing both dirt and flatland but i started off just dirt. flatland is alot harder cuz you need alot of concentration and you also need patience to put up with getting hurt and screwing up , but for my taste i would rather do BOTH! and not pick.
06-30-02, 12:22 AM
i've never tried dirt, for the reason that i don't have a car, and the nearest place remotely resembling a course is really really insanely far away =P
06-30-02, 11:10 AM
that sucks! m dad lives up in the mountains so we built these huge jumps! like 9 feet tall they were alot of fun though i broke my leg and my wrist on them oh well
Well I Like Dirt but it's 100% Your CHoice
08-07-02, 01:00 AM
Topics like this cause a lot of fighting...is that what your trying to bring us to? Anyway, I do flatland almost all of the time but I might go to the dirt jumps once in a while when there are too many motorscooterers in my way on the street :mad: :D lol. Though, dirt is more popular but flatland is alone and cool. heh. j/k. There is no comparison between them.
12-19-02, 05:40 PM
Im going dirt im all about the air
12-19-02, 06:53 PM
I love both for their different skills and requirements. A good trick in both leave me jaw dropped just itching to get out on my bike and try it. Thats all that matters in the end :)
02-12-03, 03:18 PM
I used to ride dirt but i moved away from the local dirt track but now im startin to ride flatland I have a great respect for all types of bmx and i agree with d1304life. But we shud all respect each other for the skill that we possess and the long hours of dedication that we give to the sport we know and love cheers :beer:
03-14-03, 01:43 PM
i think each of them has thier place. flatland is incrediable (sp?) and i just enjoy jumping. to each his own.
03-23-03, 12:41 PM
dude dirt kicks ass. flat land is gay cuz air doesnt exist on flatland. if u flat land and are too chicken to hit a 6ft dirt jump or even a 3fter, well u jsut plain suck
k just cuz u ride flatland doesnt meen ur afraid of getting air
03-25-03, 09:18 PM
to say its gay just because you are not flying through the air, is wrong. it takes mad skills. its like comparing apples and pears.
dirt is cooler and is funner than flatland. flatland is to technical for me. i prefer going over jumps on dirt.

Ok first off, if this is helping you decide which to ride...you made this for no reason Put it this way : Opinions Are Like *******s, They stink and everyone has one.
Now with that out of the way....
I have never tried flatland....but i think those riders are highly talented and extremely motivated. I, personally, like dirt and street. Ive learned how to ride dirt jumping and eventually moved myself to street. So, No offense to flatlanders, dirt and street are my vote. I just love the feel of being in the air and the feel of just going around the streets doing and hitin ledges and hips......I LOVE THIS SPORT!!!
Hope This Helps...
