Try the month of squats exercise to build up your leg muscles. On the first day of the month do 50 body weight only standing leg squats, then increase five a day for thirty days. By the end you are doing 200, If 50 is to easy then start with 100.

I was carving the bowl at the local skate park one lunchtime recently, and the guys their new who Ruben Alcantara was, and had a quick go on my bike and liked the geo. The funny thing was they didn't know who TerribleOne were, one guy recalled he'd read ... more »

Split my helmet, knocked myself out, and got amnesia from a badly executed trail jump. My brother in law thought he'd killed me and was most worried about telling my missus. Couldn't remember where I was, what day of the week it was, or my address. On ... more »

I bought these 661 Rhythm dead cheap from Chain Reaction. They are fine for the odd knock on the bike etc, but I bought some proper knee pads for riding vert. They have been good for MTB as well, where I mainly land on dirt and stray branches, rather ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why do you hate scooter kids? 4/30/2013 3:19 PM

I am a dad who BMXs with my son, as I used to do it back in the day. Even as a responsible adult I find kids on scooters annoying. It has nothing to do with what they ride, or how easy it is. Its to do with their lack of any etiquette at a skatepark, ... more »

Don't paint it fella, leave it as it is. I spent ages changing the colour of my WTP Envy, got it powdered.....then bought a new frame. Wasted money on stripper, paint and a powder. Take the cash you would spend on paint, and buy something more interesting, ... more »
