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...

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...

I have a few friends that are going the opposite way: they're trying to build the heaviest bike ever, but using only stock parts. hahaha! They're on a hunt for old frames and everything else. So far the heaviest frame they've found is a hoffman condor that is over 8 pounds for the frame alone! hahaha!

Taj once said that the weight of the bike doesn't necessarily have to be the lightest possible. It's gotta be an ideal weight for every person. Some riders may find it very difficult to ride a very light bike, and at the same time, these riders prefer heavier bikes and still ride comfortably ('heavier bikes' does NOT mean ride a tank, of course... unless you have the body of, say, The Rock)
I used to try to get the lightest bike possible, but that ended when I rode a friend's bike that was extremely light, and I just couldn't ride it properly! I even crashed on easy tricks! So instead I started seeking the perfect weight for me. I have today the perfect bike, and today I don't see myself going any lighter soon (or heavier), but this project is very cool indeed! By the way, thanks Taj, you were so right about it!

It's always a treat to see Hoffman and Wilhelm ride... Wilhelm is not afraid to use brakes on flatland (both, no less!) and create such amazing lines, and Mat... well, he's the godfather of BMX, so... and that barhop is awesome! Such a Hoffman original!
By the way, who shot this? Maybe it's just me, but it has such a 'eddie roman' feeling to it, you know, with the slow motion, the music.... which is great, his videos are pure BMX, pure fun and always so good to watch over and over again.

I always wondered why something like WTP's stem hasn't been created before. Many years ago I thought about how our stem and bars should be knurled just like the splines on cranks! Then we would be able to always get the bars where we want every time we had to reassemble our bike (on trips for example), and the slip would be almost completely gone! On the down side though, it would make bars bend a lot more due to pressure...
