I love hearing the question, "Are you sponsored!?!?" at the park after you do a 360 or something. haha

Well, I am on a team(minnesotabmx.8m.com), and my team has sponsors, I as an individual, do not.

BMXInvasion on here is sponsored by Dan's Comp, S&M and I think a couple others. And there was that guy that rides for Metal Bikes who posted like... once.

But other than the big companies with free parts sometimes, what do sponsors usually give you anyway?

Why would they sponsor someone with a bike that has a frame that would snap if you tried anything worth seeing on it. You acctually have to be able to do something on your bike to get sponsored you know.

What parts does 'goodtimes superstore' make? Or do they buy the parts and then give them to you.

Goodtimes Superstore doesn't make any parts.

And I have my doubts that you're sponsored.

I just got picked up by Fit, Odyssey and Vans...






Ok, well i really didnt, but im trying to get sponsored by a local clothing company, which means i would get like 2 shirts and they would never talk to me again. Sponsorship doesnt really interest me becuase for the most part when you get on a team they want you to ride in contests and do all that other stuff, and after riding in my local skateparks contest last year, i didnt like it.

I'm good enough to get sponsored for mountian biking, but I dont want the hassle.

I'm fine with riding as a hobby, everybody I know who has gotten sponsored has turned into a jackass.

Sorry, kid, but do you honestly expect us to believe that some kid on a Diamondback with Chicagoed handlebars that got a wide rear tire because his normal tire wasn't "equipped for tricks" is sponsored by Goodtimes, of all companies? We're not idiots.

Also, I still dont get why having the bars forward is called Chicago style, could I get some info/history on that?

I'm not sure why it's called that, but I do know that that's been the phrase since long before I started riding.

Most people that are sponsored dont ride Hi-Ten Frames and sprockets the size of a dinner plate. Not too mention it looks almost, if not completley stock. Why don't you redeem yourself and post some pictures of yourself doing your sponsor worthy riding.
