    Shut up you tard, stop acting like you know everything and that you are all high and mighty in the forums, you dont have the right to tell him you won't bother with him. He shouldnt bother with you.

    Questions about Flatland bikes don't come up too often. Beerman and Snazzy are the best ones to answer that question.

    Actually, BMXTrix and Snazzy would be the best to answer that. The last time I seriously considering getting a flatland bike was over half a decade ago. S&M Sabbath, fo rizzle.

    When you say "competition bmx" are you refering to racing? How big are you?

    He's talking about a flatland bike. There are flatland competitions, you know.

    Not that he'd have the skills necessary to compete.

    BMXTRIX has been pretty scarce lately. I figured you might still know a thing or two about the bikes though. Oh, the kid that got banned twice? Only because of his age.

    There's an age limit? It's not like there's anyone posting nude pictures of Margaret Thatcher on the board.

    You have to be 13 to participate. MSN has the same rules. I'm sure it's a law somewhere.

    I don't know about that; phpBB and vBulletin have an option for people under 13 to use their boards, as long as their parents email a signed waiver or something. I wouldn't really know, as - when I administrated a board - we never had anyone that young sign up, anyway.

I started flatlanding when i saw a videos of some pros, I was like sweet I wanna do that, but any way my bad ill do that search thingy, and yha BMXTRIX.com is where i usaully go for info. , but they aint been to active lately in updates. By the way i can do everything in difficulty right up to boomerangs, and i can scuff. Its just hard finding stuff on flatland, its like a BMX, figurskating hybrid ,lol.

    What do you mean it's hard finding stuff? Just go to a parking garage.

    Seems to me like he should just order up some copies of Dig-It.
