I remember this article about how chrome plating kills the environment... and also, didn't they have a stainless colourway? That was awesome

somebody hire this man to create the next cool BMX course for some contest and make BMX contests fun and creative again, not some barspin battle...

Now, that was legit! He is pulling those on ramps that you can easily find at parks and backyards, not those abnormally gigantic ramps those nitro circus dudes ride. If a guy jumps out of a plane and pull a million-tailwhip, that's NOT a record, that's some BS for TV only. This is the real thing!
Besides, I'd say you're ready to try those on skateparks and what not, Mike!
The 1260 and 900 tailwhip are a reality, those quadruple tailwhips from the circus are not...

Something simple but good looking like this one is awesome, the problem is today some guys are thinking more about the colours of their bikes than actually riding them! Back in the old days (here I go again...) if we had to buy some part because ours ... more »

Helmets all the time, cuz I'm not stupid. Wear a simple skate helmet when you ride street, but going helmetless isn't macho, or cool, it's just plain stupid.

i really like Tencio's bars being quite narrow on the bottom there... what does he ride? Are those eastern bars?

watching a guy killing it *with* brakes and *without* throwing a single barspin or tailwhip is such a breath of fresh air!
call me and old fart but when people rode street with brakes creatvity was at its best. nowadays it's always the same barspins, tailwhips and grinds, barspins, tailwhips and grinds...

I'm more into jumps and airs and flow, so to me it's 21 but I'm considering moving up a notch, maybe 21.25 ou even 21.5 with a somewhat medium rear, like a 13.75.

I already ride 30x11, and I really think CS brakes look better, cleaner even. And it seems that CS brakes work better, don't they? When you hit the brakes, they go against the tubes, and SS brakes are pulled away from the stays, so CS brakes seem to be more 'solid', get it? Anyway, CS or SS, it doesn' matter, as long as we're happy with the bike!

are Black bikes back? That would be cool, colors are fine but some people have been taking it to such levels that make me wonder if they're BMXers or they just want to makes us sick with the f-ugly (sometimes gay) color schemes...
And chainstay brakes are soooooo much better! Works better, looks better... since now we have removable u-brakes lugs, why not offer the option of having both seat AND chainstays lugs on the same frame? Or maybe offer the same frame with both options, a few with CS brake, another batch with SS brakes...

it is AMAZING how much better bikes look when the brakes are CS brakes...

I wonder when helmet companies will incorporate this technology into the shells of their helmets.

They have nice products and a few creative stuff like the foot pump that pumps 100psi in only 2 pumps (http://vocalbmx.com/project/dual-pressure-analogue-foot-pump/) and this little guy here to help keep the cranks in place during tailwhips (http://vocalbmx.com/project/vice-drs-bottom-bracket/)
Even their rise gyro plate is a good idea (http://vocalbmx.com/project/rise-gyro-plate/)

there's one thing about sprockets... why don't companies make more 30t versions of their sprockets? Sure there are quite a few options out there, but whenever some company releases a cool designed spocket, it's always 25 ou 28 t... for example, I'd like to ride one of those 'new', 'solid' sprockets (like odyssey's, kink's OG or Primo's) but I can't. If I want one of those, I have also to buy a new 10 or 9t cog, and lose my 11t one. Even if I already had a 10t cog, I wouldn't be able to ride a more responsive 30-10 ratio...
