If you're going to make a bunch of different threads at least type right and you might be able to get a legit answer.

You are either too fat for bmx, or a bad liar.

they are, i love the PA bar. and their stuff looks good. i tend to break just abotu everything tho. all this super light weight stuff just breaks. dont expect anythign you get from any company to honeslty last more than a year if you actually ride. 2 years for frame forks and bars.

who siad i wasnt having fun? just because i want to do more tricks and i like doing tricks doesnt mean im not having fun. im having fun because i can do that stuff so the more stuff you do the funner it could be. just think about it if your riding and you see a legde and u want to grind it if u can grind it you could be there for hours doing diffrent drinds and stuff but if u cant grind then that ledge is pointless so you cant spend all that time having fun in that 1 spot (if this is making sence im trying to say the more stuff you do the come potencial you have to have more fun)

First off, how old are you? Second off, why can't you reread what you type before you post it? At least use spell check.

Harsh. He said over 11 years. And from the pics he looks pretty darn good. How many have you think a pro has gone through? Cut him some slack. I mean does it really surprise you that the demolition, fly, and wombolts broke? And over a period of time depending how you ride profiles will break, they aren't indestructible. I saw a pair of Maderas break at the pedal boss within the month on a dirt jump, from a guy that is 6'1'' and 160lbs.
