While we are on the subject of other forums, don't go on BikeGuide unless you get new parts everytime they come out and worry alot about paint schemes (sp?) and drilling holes in things.

Oh and i met the guy that wrote BMXBoard on his balls. He rides with me now and lives down the street from our trails. It made me laugh.

Or maybe want to participate in the most active BMX photo/video forum around, except SP which a lot of BMX'ers go to even though it's for skating...
A lot of actual riders and company owners post on BG too, which they probably never will do here.

https://www.bmx-forum.com/bmx-videos/...days-ride.html

edit: How is it that a thread with two pictures of a 360 flyout and an ill-timed flyout no-footed can gets more replies than one of me doing a lot more than that? Not to be self-centered or anything, but seriously now... I deserve better than that, haha. Not to mention that the same kid gets five times as many replies in a thread where he posted a bunch of obviously faked grinds on a bench; pick your pedal up.

edit: Also, flyouts don't count.

Kids are too damn ridiculous, they got replies because they're 13, have supposedly been riding for 5 months, and can do 360s and can cans...

Yours are good, I like the barspin rodeo thing and the last table.

Framegrab out of a 4' bowl and into a 5' bank is way cooler than a flyout non-footed can. Especially since nobody does that sh1t anymore, short of myself and Shaun Butler.

That hip was what I killed myself on, BTW.

I'm not quite sure why people didn't respond so much to yours. Your riding is quite interesting... and actually good.

Haha i'm not trying to hate on you all.

It's more jealousy. Allthough i do care about how our trails look. Or at least the jumps i build at our trails. As for my bike, i'm always putting new stickers on and taking ones off and changing up stuff like my colored front wheel, haha.


I want the new parts when they come out too, but i don't get them because i don't need them. I get parts when i need parts now. With the exception of my frame which was more of a want.

Thats not 100% true.

They don't take well to new people who ask alot of stupid questions. I know what post your talking about seeing i'm a member their also.

But, yes they have alot of young guys who have no clue about parts. So, guys like myself and about 50 others are ALWAYS PMed to death so they get a straight no BS answer. Hell, I ran up a 800$ cell bill talking to people on how to set up brakes and stuff in just a month. But, I like to give back. BMX has been very good to me(meeting guys, riding with afew pros, getting in good with compines and ect.) so if someone asks me a legit question....I'll answer it.

I answer everyone's question. I never asked stupid questions there, only answered them. I don't really go there- only look around.
