Anybody have one? What would you recommend for a dude wanting to get one? I weigh around 250 so it can't be too small, but my lack of experience means I don't want some insane thing. Also no rockets. Just no. I found a pretty solid Honda from like 78 ... more »

No you aren't. Just get a bike and start riding. Also invest in some pads, and a helmet. That bike is definitely a classic, it will be heavy by todays standards, but would not be a bad start. Then if you hate bmx somehow, you aren't out much. You will ... more »

Losing the pins will help it pedal grind better. As far as double pegs etc wearing em out, only if you hit the pedals. I must not, I have the same set of Twisteds on my bike I have had for like 4 years.

Agreed. Some are super fast to learn, and some are stupid and take like 6 years *cough tailwhips cough*. I learned no-footed barspins in six tries. I learned tailwhips in SIX YEARS of trying. I lost tailwhips really fast too. Sucks, but it is what it ... more »

This. What an awful troll comment. Don't ever say shit like that again. Keep in mind, enough comments like that can get Mods or Admins to grab your IP address, send it to local police, and have someone make sure you aren't actually a pedophile. How embarassing ... more »

I do when I am super high up or doing something that scares the piss outta me. Not the weightless feeling but the huge adrenaline rush feeling.

This. My bike is expensive, and I cannot justify having to spend like 60 bucks on bars because I was stupid and threw it. To me that is senseless. Now if I was trying something and dumped hard and a part bent or broke, that's different. If I just got ... more »

The logic I used was that the rim had all holes covered, the hub just had some spacing on it by way of skipped holes. Truing and tensioning was a little different, but not bad at all. I actually only did it because of the rims I had, and the hubs were ... more »

Nope. Because it's mainstream. And mainstream sucks.

Added reply in a thread dirty IAC truck part/sensor - how to clean? 3/27/2015 3:18 PM
I cleaned an O2 sensor with a wire brush recently and the check engine light went away. I don't know what your sensor looks like, but if it is similar, try carefully using it. You MIGHT try brake cleaner (cheap and works well) but it could leave residue. ... more »

I did it with random spokes I had laying around and just kinda made it work. There is an actual pattern to lace it, something like 3 on, skip a hole, 4 on skip a hole. It is very much doable. I actually confused the Training Department head to the bike

Yea, I have a wife and son I provide for, so craziness is worked up to and rare. GOD I miss the days of "HUCK IT, CHUCK IT" sessions. And honestly if I could land every trick I have ever pulled, I'd be stoked.
Added reply in a thread Any advice on filming? 3/27/2015 3:02 PM
Not shaky, smooth movement, different angles, getting close when needed and far away when needed, practice and lots of it. Those are some suggestions I have used before when me and the homies filmed. Also having different lenses helps you get closer ... more »

It held up well (I think I have photos on my profile on here). It was just slapped together haha. Never really came out of true or anything.

Same, then I get to the spot and wuss out realizing I am an old fart and can't really afford to get hurt.

I have. I get a billion results for random programs, and then reviews on some stating they are viruses and malware. I would like to know if anyone has experience with one and if it works well etc. Thanks for the advice.

Anyone know how to rip a section of a DVD to youtube or Vimeo? I want to upload part of a video we made like 11 years ago, and it is on a DVD.
