    Wow...do you think he can find out in which town I reside? He can't possibly!

    Ohh, and just for the record, my name isn't Michael, nor is it Mike.

    Now, it totally sucks when I have to ban a noob. So chill out. Must be crappy weather in Illinois.

    There is no secret to better manuals, other than lots of practice.

    You want a damned tip? Go outside and practice for 6 hours.

    The repeat for the next 6 months

    Hump my freind, hump,

    And when you have humped enough, and are about to flip over, pull your brakes.







    The humping part was while your manualing, not after, unless you have a girlfriend, in which case, go for it.

    BMXTrix has been down a lot lately too. I think he was moving into a new house and stuff so he probably doesn't have time to fix the server problems, let alone update it.

    if it has trick tips, it doesn't matter when it was updated. how to do a given trick hasn't changed. maybe try to be a little bit more positive?

    Ok, I haven't been into the whole BMX tricks scene in a long time. There's been nothing new since 2003? And as someone has already noted, the site isn't even always up.

    And if you can manual 25 feet, is there anything other than lots of practice that will improve that?
