Added reply in a thread Chase Hawk Tires 7/21/2014 7:38 PM

i've been running my 2.4 hawk p-lytes front and rear for a month now and they've been good so far. they roll smooth, and grip pretty well on street, indoor and outdoor parks. i haven't ridden dirt with them yet so I'm not sure how good they are on dirt. ... more »

it's all practice and it takes time to perfect your hops. don't waste your money on parts they won't really help. just keep trying and you'll be fine

Added reply in a thread What's your favorite time to ride? 7/15/2014 12:18 PM

after 5pm and late night sessions are my favourite (as long as there's light, it's hard to ride when you can't see where you're going)

Added reply in a thread Anyone else not anal about their bikes? 7/9/2014 7:16 PM

as long as the parts are in decent condition, trustworthy, and not on the verge of breaking down then I'm not too picky. I'm more anal about how things are set up like handlebar position, having a tight chain and having the back wheel as far forward ... more »

their grip was fine for plastic pedals when i had them to be honest. the only reason i switched to something else was because i wanted bigger platforms and replaceable bodies. other than that i think they're decent for how cheap they are

Added reply in a thread Most hated riders? 7/8/2014 11:25 PM

i don't so much as "hate" I'm just not too stoked on seeing some people's riding like stevie churchil. the shit he does is insane and all but i just don't get the "whoa that was cool" feeling from watching him. but meh, who am i to judge.

Added reply in a thread big ass pedals 7/7/2014 9:47 PM

animal BPE's, I've been using them for a while and they've been pretty good. decent grip for plastics, nice big platform. i prefer huge platforms too lol or odyssey trailmix, fit mac and a few other metal ones are pretty big

Added reply in a thread Crankarm Grinds on ledges? 7/3/2014 7:50 PM

do it on your back foot side, i think those look cooler than front foot "crank arm" grinds on ledges haha. front foot crank arm grinds on rails are still awesome tho

Added reply in a thread Why doesn't the majority of bmx like park? 7/3/2014 7:14 PM

it's definitely a trend thing, and some people don't live near a decent park. i don't live near a good park so i ended up riding mostly street and i enjoy it. i definitely love riding park tho but i absolutely suck at it because i don't get to ride ramps ... more »

Added reply in a thread Best plegs? 7/3/2014 6:51 PM

animal butchers are good. mine are almost worn down to the core but they haven't cracked yet. the sleeves lasted a good 3-4 months. i don't grind gritty, unwaxed ledges a whole lot tho

Added reply in a thread Practice will solve it? 7/1/2014 11:13 AM

practice most definitely will trump strength in bmx. its 99% technique when it comes to hops and whatnot. you don't have to be buff to hop bar height. you'll gain the necessary muscles through practice anyway
