You Know What Jesse...

I'm Sorry For Aiming My Frustrations At You. O.K We Are Obviously Disagreeing On Things, But I Was Highly Hypocritical In My Posts, Bullying & Hatred Are Bad & Then Call People Names & Hate On People Dedicated To One Or Two Companies Pushing Their Views On People?

You're A Good Guy & A Friend Like Colin Said. I'm Just HIGHLY Frustrated With The World Of BMX atm! I've Got A Lot Of Shit On My Plate To Deal With Too & I'm Taking It Out On The First Person To Fit The Stereotype Of What I PERSONALLY Think Is Wrong In BMX Right Now.

Douche Move. Let's Just End This B.S Now, Leave Eddi Be Also, He's A Good Kid.

Good:
Adam22/tcu- they do a hell of alot more for bmx as a whole than any other bmx website, hell, tcu may do more for bmx than many of todays bike companys.
-bmx has finally got over the "lightness" obsession
- quality bike design
-erik elstran
-all of the OG bmxers who are still involved in bmx and pushing the sport forward
-lifetime warranties
Edit- brakes
Edit- frames with welded brake mounts

Bad:
Huge tires- maybe if you are a pegless rider who does burly stuff they may have a point. Overall they are ugly, create more rolling resistance, drag on the side of ledges when you grind them and make your bike heavier.
Big bars: i can see a tall person needing taller bars but imo anything over 9 is overkill no matter who you are.
Annnd here it comes..

THE INTERNET
Though it can be quite helpful for information, i still feel that the internet has hindered bmx waay more than helped it...

Because of the internet:
-Mail-orders managed to kill off the few good lbs still left.
-The trendy parts that you all have been bitching about become trendy.
-Peoples opinions right or wrong can seriously damage a person's/company's/part's reputation.
-Full length Bmx videos are no longer relevant.
-Kids only learn the tricks that are trendy and don't learn the obscure tricks or bother to try to come up with their own.
-people are sitting in front of their computer having keyboard-worrior-pissfests like the one in this thread instead of riding their damn bike.
Edit- For the most part bmx magazines have become irrelevant too.
Edit: VITAL CAN USE ADS THAT POP UP WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO NAVIGATE TO A NEW PAGE!! I hate them.

Good:
Odyssey
Fit
People who buy parts based on reliability/strength not weight
4 pegs
coasters
Riders who are well rounded
TCU, and I say TCU because they do good things for bmx as a whole, when Maddog got injured, they held a jam at Rye Airfield which is 45 mins from me and it was for a good cause plus nothing bmx related happens in my area so it was pretty cool.
Bad:
Riders who don't actually hop when they spin, that shit is my pet peeve
Barspins, I think they're overdone but 180 bars can look good in a line sometimes
People who don't know who Mike Aitken or Van Homan are
One more thing. the whole weed thing in edits with OSS, at the end of the day they're kinda just showing how they live their daily lives. If bmx was more popular I would be more concerned about it, but that's just my opinion.

I dont say stupid things, just no one knows what im talking about.

Diversity as in more black and hispanic kids ride now than ever. its not just a white people sport anymore.
I dont get hated on by my own people for doing something i enjoy anymore because people like nigel made it cool.
Same thing with skateboarding now as well.

The fuck does that have to do with tailwhips and barspins? fucking idiot.

Good-Riding in general
strong parts
48s are comming back
Black parts
other colour parts
