the longer the TT the more stable for jumps.
the shorter the TT the more squirrly for jumps.

BMXZ, I banned your brother 4 times. That's a personal record. Just remember that all you know about BMX, you learned in the last month.

How is he doing with his new bike anyway?

Um is what i learned in the last month good?Well my little brother couldnt get to use the bike that much yet cuz he was sick for a little bit.But now that hes not sick anymore he wants to go out and do some stuff. He said he wants to go out and go up ramps and jumps off those stairs again and everything. Hes doing really well and hes excited that hes not sick anymore and he can go outside and chill and ride.

You should just lock threads created by banned users.

Your definition of "value" appears to be off, Ex.

I'm just slack today, that's all. It was worth keeping this open just to point out that someone got banned 4x.

what does someone do to get banned? Not that it is a goal of mine (being new to this) but I am curious. I hope punctuation, grammatical or spelling errors aren't enough.

Language, disruption, harassment. Annoying me. Being under 13. Actually, you can annoy me, that's not an issue. We just generally ask that you abide by the rules and guidelines you agreed to when you signed up. And we usually give 3 warnings first, so you probably don't have much to worry about.
