Hey, I am kind of new to flatland. Right now I am riding a redline single X. It's a dirt jumper. I have a back brake and I put four pegs on it. The frame is kind of long though. I want to buy a new bike and i was looking at the 2003 hoffman ep. It was priced at $510 but it has dropped to $382. What do you think? Is it worth getting? I've heard it is great for flatland but that it is so short that you can't do other stuff. Is that true?

How tall are you? I'm about 5 foot 10 and a half but i'm still growing. so is $382 a reasonable price for the 2003 hoffman ep star series?

nah....i would only use a flatland bike for flatland.a fork wheelie is just a beginner trick whe you are holdin the back end of the bike up when you are kickin the front wheel and on the front pegs

ok, i don't think anyone should care what anyone else rides, where they ride, who they ride with or at what level that their riding has brought them to. just as long as you do ride. lets just leave these forums for talks about real stuff like cassette or freewheel, chromolly or steel, Primo or Odyssey, brakes or no brakes! common you guys all of these recent posts (even mine i might ad, are beginning to sound like a bunch of skateboarders)
