Never ridden vert, never ridden serious dirt, so I ride street

I like banks and ledges and stuff like that, I can't really do any tricks yet but I can try them, and just bunnyhop out of some things.
I also like riding park sometimes, which isn't exactly vert..

Well, I didn't like bikes at all until about two years ago, when I got a mountain bike, then I got a BMX cruiser last year but still rode the mtb most of the time, and last winter I decided I liked BMX better, and saved up to get a 20". So I've been riding BMX for about a year, but not very seriously last year.

Hops, fairly long rollbacks, footjams and learning footjam whips, and crappy tables. But I love riding bikes, so I'm content with the fact that I'll get better eventually, and won't ever make a living from riding. ;p

I agree. Last week, I was having a few Newcastle Pale Ales with Bob Haro and Stu Thomsen, and they said the exact same thing.

Haha, yeah, its pretty lame, (i have to admit, ive done it, but i try to avoid it now)

He said that Scotty Cranmers parents owned Incline Club, thats not true(im pretty sure its owned by Staff BMX Mailorder, or they share buildings)
