    Flat or dirt

    It is a shame that some one would even ask that question.You must either be young or doent't ride your bike that much.It's all about having fun.If you feel like riding whatever form of biking there is,do it and doen't worrie about which is better.

    It's all in opinion.

    Flatlanding- more technical and can get annoying if u can't get a trick right

    Dirt- hurts a lot more but air is fun!!!!!!

    I like Dirt, but i have a great respect for good Flatland riders, as there is a lot more concentration and discipline involved in it.

    They can't even be compared because they are so different. The patience required to be good at flatland is the hardest thing to develop. I've ridden both and i prefer street, but flatland comes next. Late.

    well, really it is all a matter of opnion, as some of u said befor me..that true and also, a dirt rider unless he is not bias will say dirt is better, same thing goes for a flat rider...alot of u are bias

    all of you bob knobbers who say that dirt or flat land is better either you dont ride or ur just gay. a real rider would know that its all your personal opinion on whats better. i personally like street and dirt but i have a lot of respect to the flatlanders because it takes a lot of skill to do that shiz i wouldnt even know how to go about that take it from me i tryed both and ended up liking street but its all up to u

    personally i like doing both dirt and flatland but i started off just dirt. flatland is alot harder cuz you need alot of concentration and you also need patience to put up with getting hurt and screwing up , but for my taste i would rather do BOTH! and not pick.

    i've never tried dirt, for the reason that i don't have a car, and the nearest place remotely resembling a course is really really insanely far away =P

    Topics like this cause a lot of fighting...is that what your trying to bring us to? Anyway, I do flatland almost all of the time but I might go to the dirt jumps once in a while when there are too many motorscooterers in my way on the street lol. Though, dirt is more popular but flatland is alone and cool. heh. j/k. There is no comparison between them.

    I love both for their different skills and requirements. A good trick in both leave me jaw dropped just itching to get out on my bike and try it. Thats all that matters in the end
