Added reply in a thread Bike shop scams 12/5/2016 3:59 PM

My take on MOST bike shops is: they take advantage of people's ignorance....cuz they want to make a buck. They assume you know nothing about the hub internals, so they create work for them selves and sell you stuff that doesn't really need to be replaced. ... more »

Added reply in a thread What does your bike weigh? 11/16/2016 7:28 PM

Josh- 25 lbs is a decent weight. To get a really light bike you almost have to start from scratch - and BE a weight weenie by looking at the weight of every part you might buy. If you are dying to get it lighter then I would look at the crank arms- which ... more »

If you ain't concerned about bike weight.....you should be. Esp around the wheel tires tubes. I don't want to get all Sir Isaac Newton on you all- but a little thing called rotational inertia has big effects -esp if your doing tricks. If your just "flowing" ... more »

I usually don't donate to people I don't know and never met- but I just donated a 20 to his road2recovery profile. I was always impressed his YouTube vids were all done with no ads - even though he had 3-5 hundred thousand views every time. If all those viewers just gave one buck................#donate #standwithscotty

I wouldn't say it's the kind of trick you'll go from: not being able to do it (but trying hard)....... to dialed in two days. Barspins was a trick I struggled with- but once I landed one or two, there was an "a-ha" moment and suddenly I could do them ... more »

I forgot.....Opinions and minds change. Maybe change yours? Doubt you'll be entirely the same person in 10 years than you are now.

Nothing like taking a chair lift up a mountain and riding down 3 miles of jumps, drops , berms and wall rides. Then you ride the lift up again and ride another trail

C50_image_1404789481

BMX has got 99 problems....... and Harry Main ain't one of them.
Bmx has an image problem in general. When that 14-18 yr old kid growing up in the suburbs decides that : scooters, skateboards, mountain bikes, fixies , or what have you, is Cooler than bmx..... Then that starts a downward spiral for the industry generally. The average suburban kid is gonna be able to come up with the dough to get whatever bmx he wants. That is- If they are- or have become Serious about it. If they are buying Walmart bikes, then they are the kids that aren't serious and do no tricks, and just cruise around. What BMX needs is a super high profile role model for the masses to rep for the "sport" - (cough , Scotty Cramner, cough)

I still shake my head in disbelief that the originals of bmx are so rooted in 70's skateboarding- that we still carry the names of basic tricks like "full cab" and manuals to this day...........shocking
