street riding, dosn't consist of to and from school, unless your doing tricks along the way.

koolstop is always good, especially the salmon compound. Plazmatic pads are awesome but expensive and loud

You don't have to be a jerk. I'm fairly certain that he has to ride on the street between his house and school.

Funny, I ride my race bike on the street, to a local dirt track. Along the way, I hop kerbs, do little jumps off peoples yards, and generally create a nuisance. What would you call that?

I do this to on my to peoples houses when I go to hang out with them and i ride my bike to get there, but I don't say i went street riding along the way since I'm just really using the bike to get from point a to point b, like beerman said, So it really dosn't count as a session.

He didn't say it was a session, he only said it was "Street riding". I know you're jealous that he's in NZ, one of the most beautiful countries in the world, but what should he have said? Enlighten us with the proper lingo.

I already said this way before above, It's commuting, not street riding.

We sell kool-stop's. never changed my the ones on my ****e so I don't really know. But here's a lingo question. What if I leave extra early on my way somewhere so I can hit some jumps and practice some stuff before I got there?

You work at a shop, but yet you ride a bike with a 1" threaded headset. WTF?

I got my wife a Felt Sector 24 for Mother's Day. She's quite stoked, even though she'll mostly be riding on the street.
