If they want to charge ya, they're going to charge ya. I've seen both sides many times. I don't think it has much to do with who you are or what you say. It has everything to do with who they are and what they feel like doing. If you're taking any short ... more »

Gerber is definitely one of the most underrated riders in the game.

Reply to Vital needs an app! 5/26/2016 2:20 PM

We've put time and resources into making the mobile site as easy to use as possible. We think that makes more sense than completely building out a custom app. So many people end up on Vital through social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc) links ... more »

This sucks. Sounds like they're blowing it on all aspects (being open during business hours, handling orders appropriately, paying their vendors...).

What don't you like about it? Jamie may have felt the same way... His is custom.

He had a GT poster in an issue of Ride many years ago (10 to 15?) riding trails. Thats irrelevant, but you saying that just reminded me.

Reply to T1 ramp? 4/5/2016 12:30 PM

We posted about it on the homepage a week or so ago. While this is a huge bummer, I consider the fact that it existed for so many years as a pretty big BMX victory. Think of all the ramps / parks that have come and gone during the T1 ramp's life. I first ... more »

Reply to Going through a Divorce :( 4/4/2016 7:43 PM

That absolutely sucks, but I'm sure will be for the best in the long run. Get through all of the bullshit and move on with your life. I've seen numerous friends go through nasty divorces. The first bit is always rough, then it's back to single living ... more »

Did you press play? I works fine for me. Maybe I'm as drunk as the camera...

Completely agree with your "other aspects of cycling" comment. I recently spent $60 on a pump. I wish it could have been from a brand that supports BMX!

That's dope. Upload it to the bike check section and I'll post it to the homepage.

I'll try to dive into this more later, but just wanted to make note that "team equity" does exist within some brands. I won't directly say who (if they wanted it public, it'd be public), but that idea does exist and, in my opinion, works well.

Beyond heartbroken. Dave paved the way for so many of us. As a child, he was a hero. As an adult, he was a friend. I can't even begin to put into words what he means to the BMX world. Icon is an understatement.

Haro has Fernengel, Enarson, Nyquist, CK , Watts, Gray, DMC, and Matthias... He's was in there.

Oh. Got it. Why Stranger? I can't even think of any of their riders other than LZ and Lichtenberger off the top of my head...

Without knowing the specs of each individual camera, I've always been partial to Canon stuff.

Agreed It looks great. Colton rules.
