Thank you shogun17, and elgalad.

Many people come here and immediately assume that because this is a BMX forum, that the folks here aren't 'real cyclists'. They also assume that because most of the people here on this forum are young, that the BMXers are stupid and ignorant.

They are cyclists, just as much in their own way as roadies. BMX requires a different sort of athleticism, but it's just as difficult in it's own way. And trust me, the people here in this forum are not stupid or ignorant. Many of them have been, and continue to be, just as dedicated to their version of cycling as roadies--but they are much more welcoming of people who wish to start enjoying BMX.
