exactly. Which is why you and folks like you don't / won't get the invite to trails. You're out of control. If you haven't picked up a shovel and spent time digging you may not understand.

drag your feet at any of the trail spots i dig at and you're getting kicked out. Actually, you probably wouldn't be invited in the first place. :/

Added reply in a thread My 2.5 piece cranks are separating. Didn't think this was possible. 5/23/2017 1:10 PM

they are pressed in but they are still just 3 piece cranks. which is why they can come apart.

normal. as stated they're actually 3 piece cranks. I hate the term '2.5' as they are actually just 3 piece cranks.

Added reply in a thread dirt jump dimensions 5/19/2017 1:20 AM

dirt jumps aren't built with a compass and measuring tools like box jumps are. Most of the dirt jumps we build around here have a six foot or taller lip. The size of your box jump will depend on the space you have. Do you have enough room to get speed ... more »

Added reply in a thread Lower back problems + bigger bars advice 5/18/2017 11:26 AM

taller bars will give you less distance for you to have to lean forward. the sweep is less important for that measurement. I can't ride bars that don't have 3 up and 10 back, at least. they feel bent down. but taller bars will mean you need to lean forward ... more »

I had back surgery. Bikram yoga helped 100% after surgery. I also have a bosu ball that I use. for me, my core is super strong. It's the muscles around it, including my leg muscles, that get super tight and cause tension on my back. Keeping my leg muscles, ... more »

I've walked out of doctors offices before. Support me or fuck off. Go with the tall as fuck bars you want to get. See if a dramatic change does anything. Give it some time though cause such a big change is going to change how all of your upper body muscles ... more »

I just bought a complete board set up about a month ago. I skate more than bike if I'm alone. My job hours don't always line up with hanging with my friends. I've been off a board for a bunch of years and never really skated park so it's a fun new learning ... more »

I thought maybe you died or something. Let's here how you got the bike and let's get better pics! Last I heard, your dad was trying to buy a piece of garbage so I'm stoked you got what looks to be a real bike.

Added reply in a thread high stand over height 5/11/2017 2:03 PM

center of gravity is where your cranks / pedals / are. Not where your top tube is. I personally think low SO looks silly but I don't hate on those that want to ride 'em.

Added reply in a thread high stand over height 5/11/2017 10:52 AM

it's been a long time since i've done no footed cans but I'm pretty sure I could swing my legs over either side of the frame, regardless of stand over height. The jumps I'm riding now are too gnarly for me to want to fall on these days. Or maybe I've

Added reply in a thread Have no clue what bike to get. 5/11/2017 10:40 AM

I would suggest 21 top tube. Over the years I have slowly moved up from 20 inch top tubes to 21+ and I wish I would have done it sooner. I'm 5'8" It's all preference but since you're new to riding, I think you'd be more comfortable on a bigger frame. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Have no clue what bike to get. 5/10/2017 3:05 PM

Since you have no clue, I'd suggest going to a store. Find one near you that sells bmx and go have a look. Check out as many bikes as you can before buying.

I'd not put him in clips. Riding flats will make him a better rider in the long run. and I'm not joking AT ALL when I say to you dad, GET A BIKE AND RIDE WITH HIM. if you're not already. Don't be one of those track dads that yells at his kid to 'pedal ... more »

Added reply in a thread Advice on bike upgrades 5/8/2017 5:46 PM

The best racers and riders I know build and ride trails. Buy yourself a bike dad. Then grab some shovels and go dig and ride with your kid. Or ask the other dads what their kids are riding and buy those things.

Added reply in a thread Will this fit? plz 5/8/2017 1:25 PM

All those parts should fit fine. I would buy a few 5mm headset spacers instead of 10mm ones. You'll have more adjust-ability that way.
