Yeah my thought is, living to not die isn't living. Take your meds, stay healthy and ride your f'ing bike. I was told, and I'm sure this is the same with other killer diseases, is that your attitude is huge when it comes to recovery. Being positive cant ... more »

I can't speak to diabetes, but I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer about 2 months ago. YOLO the fuck out of it man. I'm going through chemo right now and riding has lifted my spirits the way nothing else can. I don't have anything else to add, ... more »

Yeah when it comes to pedals, grips, seats...all that stuff is interchangeable between bmx and mtb.

It's a 22" top tube with 20" wheels. I love it. I switched from a 21.5 United G-Slat frame and it's not a ton different. Super stable on dirt, especially on the bigger sets and higher speeds.

I'm 43 and I still compete in dirt. I'll get roasted for this, but what drives me nuts is old dudes thinking the old school stuff was better. From a pro from the 80's, let me tell you, old school stuff sucks. Fun to look at (I guess) but impractical ... more »

I lived with that dude for awhile. He had the check where he sold the patent to the gyro for $99k...he had it hanging on the wall in his office.

What I was trying to say, and maybe I should have elaborated a bit, is that mtb has gone a little nuts over the past few years with different sizes for things. Keep in mind I work at a mtb bike park, so I see all the "nonsense" if you will with different ... more »

Mountain biking is already made itself a retarded mismatch of sizes... 26", 27.5, 29" wheels... 135mm, 142mm rear hub sizes. I'd hate to see bmx go down that rabbit hole of crap.

I'm rocking a Colony Castaway in a 22"tt and it's phenomenal. I ride dirt, park and the occasional vert ramp. I had a United Voyage in a 21.5"tt and loved it, too. I can't see ever going back to a sub 21.5 frame. Everybody says oh that's too long for ... more »
