What's up people! Here's my first bike check ever on Vital and the interwebs for that matter. It's been 17 years since my last ride on a BMX (1992 GT Interceptor). My oldest just learned how to ride a bike and I wanted to ride around with him. I was definitely not interested in a MTB (not that their is anything wrong with that) so I bought a Sunday Model C to start off with and then transferred the parts to a 24" Liquid Feedback frame.

Decided to try a 20" BMX again so I bought a 2011 Stolen Score Complete last year. I got hooked. I know I'm gonna catch flak for the seat post height but I'm 30 years old who is 6'0" and I like to sit & pedal while I'm cruising with my family. Plus my knees aren't what they used to be. Enjoy!

Yeah it definitely looks like the 2.4 Chase Hawk tire will clear the back. Actually right now my back is 90 PSI and the front is 80 PSI and no lie, the front actually looks like 2.25 and the back 2.10. The tires are 100 PSI Max. It doesn't seem like the 2.4 is a 2.4.

Really nice build, brother! I was out of it for quite awhile myself. About 22 years I believe. My last bike was an 88 Mongoose Californian Pro. Crazy how time flies!

Yeah my front end is really responsive. It's as crazy as I thought it was going to be but I love it.

I hear you man. As soon as I got into high school, it was about getting my license and then a car. Graduated, started partying and going to college, working and started a family. Wish I kept up with BMX but I'm back and enjoying it more then ever.

Nice! Your bike is very clean and love the shots. Your girlfriend is a keeper for sure if she's rolling with a 5D. I see you got some nice L glass lenses also. Both of you must be into photography which is a plus for a lens collection. Your shots make me want to redo my pics. All I did was a quick shoot in my house and ran it through Photoshop.

I'll try and do a proper shoot (better background) when I get a chance since your shots have inspired me to at least put some effort in on my part.

That's what I've been trying to figure out. Stephen Campbell, the Team Manager for Odyssey runs them this way and the Alex Magallan and Eric Lichtenberger completes on Sunday's website run them this way also. I figure if Odyssey's Team Manager runs them this way then that's how they're supposed to be.

That's what I was thinking but Odyssey's Team Manager, Stephen Campbell runs the Chase Hawk tires this way on his bike check and so do the Alex Magallan and Eric Lichtenberger completes on Sunday's site. I figure if Odyssey's team manager run them this way then it has to be the right way.
