When I went to Tony Hawk's Boom Boom Huck Jam he was there. He was injured so he hosted the show.

Seriously. Meeting Rick Thorne and getting your photo taken with him is nothing to be proud of. Also, you look like a total ******.

No, actually that would be 5'4" 15-year olds in women's jeans riding uncut Lumberjack bars with spacered-up Fit DLD stems, slammed seats with wedge mods, and folding tires.

well yes, those are also the kids that get everything from there mama and have their bikes worked on by the local shop and don't know **** about maintaining a bike and don't bother to learn either. Winnipeg dosent have to many kids like that. Rick thorne is right up there to me

ummmmmm. i wear skinny jeans. but my stem isnt spacered sky high, just high enough, and i dont have lumberjacks. or folding tires. or even a pivotal seat/post. and i can actually work on my bike.

dont knock clothing styles. just kids who cant work on their bikes and dont have to earn/buy their own parts.

I wear skinny jeans sometimes too, i find them easyer to ride in, but if you can acctually ride its a different story.

i rocked em because i started to get into a lot of punk and metal, and that just kind of went with it. plus i felt it kind of comfy. especially when you make a pair of jeans into shorts for the summer haha.

edit: Since when does "getting into" punk and metal have anything to do with crossdressing?

its not crossdressing, and thats what a lot of the bands i listen to wear, so i started to do the same thing, and then i made it my own, like with flannel shirts.

and thats why i cut my hair. it used to be to my shoulders, and all my friends had the same thing, so i cut it.

i started with it because of my music, and then it just kind of evolved into my own little thing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross-dressing

"Cross-dressing is the act of wearing clothing commonly associated with another gender within a particular society."

As in a man wearing... women's jeans.

I must commend you, though, for trying to be an individual, a leader, in a society filled with followers.

thanks. im seriously one of like 4 kids in a school of 1100 kids that wears skinny jeans. and one of two that wears them as shorts. the other kid is a good friend. but he doesnt ride. he just jams to some good ol slam.

but it is kind of hard to look so different, and not feel out of place. everyone gives out funny looks.
