Im a new member here, i decided to join to see if anyone wants to buy my parts and im reading through the forums and all i see are the same guys makin fun of everyone and everything...insulting kids that are new to riding. making fun of low cost bikes...i dont see you guys proving that you ride better than them. only decent guy here is beerman, he knows what hes talkin about..I mean ive seen guys on vertical BMX's busting out hard ass tricks..so remember its not what type of bike you have but what you got for riding so CUT THE BS!

Internet balls and actual balls have little to do with each other. Just get out and ride.

I don't ride at the moment, but I'll be back in a coupel more weeks; broken arms are a b1tch. Here's a few pictures of me from April, though:

switch pedal feeble
switch-footed sprocket slide
seatgrab crankarm 50-50

Please, he's a dick like everyone else. At least give BMXTRIX some credit too. As for all the younger punks, you're certainly right. No one here that's over the age of about 17 is making fun of kids that are new. But we've only got so much tolerance for stupidity and laziness. How many times does the "What's the best bike" or "Which is better" thread get started by some noob?

I'm a photographer and importer. I don't do tricks. I ride my mountain bikes, and try to race my cruiser when I get the chance. Since it's winter, I don't get to ride too much. It's dark and cold when I get home from work, and lately it's been pissing down rain too. Sucks for riding. But I do agree, nothing really matters more than actually riding.

Cheers.

Wow, QED.

BTW, I think he was agreeing with you, not the other way around.

If you apologize, I won't call you stupid. You'll notice I quoted you, and highlighted your comment about Beerman in red. It's called sarcasm. Do I need to edit my post to make it a bit more clear?

Yeah, and if he didn't have a giant chip on his shoulder, he would have seen that, and gotten the sarcasm as well.

Some of the younger guys that have been here a while are just plain stupid, but most of them are starting to come around. I feel sorry for Beerman, as besides the broken arm, he's probably got a giant bruise on his forehead from slapping it so many times. As for me, I try to be helpful when it comes to stuff I know, but the new guys need to do a search before they start another redundant thread. And I have no tolerance for the needless name calling, and poor spelling and grammar.

I don't recall you posting anything particularly obnoxious lately. You must be nearing the end of your high school years.

I've been pegless since, oh, Spring 2003? I put pegs on occasionally, though. Right before I got hurt, I was running a single JPEG Lite on the front right (for predator grinds and smith stalls), and was planning on putting a 2"-long Kink OG on the back right again.
