yeah i can see what you mean. my dad is a pro photographer, but he usually photographs stuff that dont move too fast, and his timing with hi speed stuff like bmxing is not good, and his angles arent the best.

Very cool. But I have a question. Why do you guys run your seats like that?

"Like that" as in "low"? Because we don't sit on them while riding, perhaps?

I don't know why anyone else does or why your supposed to, but I run my seat like that to keep me standing up so i don't sit down. For me, even with a higher-up seat its easier to do tricks standing up. Im not sure if thats why other people run there seats like that though.

Yeah as in low and pointing up. Looks uncomfortable. I'm assuming you could use a quick release for easy changes for different riding.

some people keep the seat that way to "pinch" it with their knees when doing no-handers - bar spins, etc.

w/ bmx, we dont really sit on the seat, it's just an appendage.
