Maybe you should put together a skill share on chifg. Skips, skids, trackstands and bike polo type skillz. Throw in beer and you got yourself a party!

My time spent in the BMX forum and the pics posted by you and WTP make me miss my old Webco Replica.

There is a 26, a volume sledgehammer i think it's called. But that kind of defies the point of a bmx really.

Think your 40 year old knees can handle the low riding position?

Nothing wrong with using a rear brake. I believe the keirin riders here use a rear when just starting. I see alot of fixed bikes here with rear brakes.

Thanks giant. I think in the next month I'll take off the rear brake if I stay dedicated to learning. If not, I'll stay on it.

It's a Fuji Track SE. It's a great ride. It's 43cm. Mind you I'm vertically challenged. I stand at a tall 5'2".

Don't be afraid to ride w/ both brakes ms. gio. They come in handy on long descents when you unclip your feet and fixie coast all the way down a hill.

Good! Saves you the hassle of him stalking you all the time begging you to take him back and that he's changed his mind about being brakeless.
