    Get an iPod, and go ride alone.

    It's fun sometimes.

    Sometimes it's fun. After awhile it gets really boring.

    I like riding alone. There is a lot less pressure to do things and you feel more comfortable riding. For example, yesterday I went out and relearned smiths and didn't have to worry about anyone dogging me for bailing or something of the sort.

    Practicing smiths and going over the bars can be funny to watch. I'd rather laugh than be laughed at.

    Well, its kool to ride alone and get some things off of my mind and my friends won't laugh if bail or wreck or anything. Its just that they hardly ever want to ride...lame sometimes I feel like I'm the only one dedicated that I know and if thats the way its going to be then so be it. But its nice to have people to just talk to and ride with and as for that iPod I'm currently investing in one I haven't decided if i want to get it before or after a new frame.

    It's harder than it looks (or at least from my experiences). Also, please don't use AIM speak here. It gets really annoying really fast.

    AIM speak?...uh sure why not. And I do smiths pretty well just extend your arms foward and strech pretty far down and back. I don't know, smiths are easy to me I have more trouble with feebles but still pretty easy. I'm starting up on hangover tooths and such.

    I need to learn how to bunny hop 3 feet so I can try to grind.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    AIM speak as in like "lolz" and "omgawdz."

    How can you possibly have more trouble with feebles than smiths? That doesn't make much sense.

    I can only hop between 3 and 4 feet. but even when I couldn't I just looked for lower things and worked up from there. It's all progression.

    Well the only thing I can do grinding wise is lifting the front tire/peg on a bench or something because I stink.

    What do you grind if you say thats high because handrails are close to 3 ft.

    Pick the front end as much as you can (shifting your weight helps A LOT) and try to almost throw your bars almost arcing up and foward. I'm bad at explaining things.

    tucking your bike underneath you helps too.

    I have hopped a shopping cart, but I have never seen anyone clear a 6' obstacle.

    exaggeration, but this guy jeff that rides at chenga can definately clear atleast 4-5 feet and I don't know how but he's taller than me and does it on a 19.75 frame.

    If you can find someone that can hop that high, I'd love to meet him. For a second there, I was starting to think that there was no such thing as God.

    But really, no one can jump six feet up from flat on a 20 inch bmx bike.

    EDIT: 4-5 feet doesn't sound right either.

    I wouldn't say no one can, because I've seen guys from the haro team flair out of a 6 foot quarter. But then again that has nothing to do with hops and thats the haro team haha. anyway this guy jason perz (look for his video on youtube) does bunnywhips like nothing. I remember watching him at chenga whip to tap and barspin to drop in on the 6 foot halfie.
