the best for bmx would be that you guys stop being super jealous and hating on everything! Go out and riding your bikes !!!

Only bad reason why I see walmart selling legit bmx bikes is that another big corporation is gonna take away from the mom an pops bike shops. I do agree that walmart getting into the bmx mix is bad for bmx. But spinner is all about that cash flow.

walmart sponsors, fricking play or mike spinner is a sellout - this is so bad for bmx- screw this whole comp

If you let one logo on one ramp make you hate a whole contest, I think it's safe to say you're overreacting. Embrace the good riding.

im pretty sure if walmart gave you some cash it would be up on this site to. its nice to see vitalbmx has now released the vitalscooter domain back for sale to save its bmx visitors (or at least some of them). $$$$$$$$$ - I only come to this site for the media. But to see names like walmart up and around the bmx scene is just bad. really bad. almost as bad as mail order bmx companies (Vein? is that what they are called?) where you cant even test ride the bike your about to buy. Wonder how much they gave you for the ad space?

There's a Vital MX and a Vital MTB site, but never a scooter one (nor was one ever even considered). Sorry to let you down.
Congrats on being so cool and knowledgeable about all things BMX. Hopefully we can continue to provide you with "the media" you desire. No sure what on the site isn't a part of "the media," but your vision obviously must be correct.

Allow myself to drop some knowledge on you. What Hyper does with Walmart is called "licencing" , which means that Hyper licenses their name and logo to the companies that produce Walmart specific bikes (Pacific was a big entity the last time I checked), these companies produce these bikes just like all the other ones they produce and use Hyper's name and logo to make the bike desirable to non-elite buyers (AKA those kids who just saw Mike Spinner online and only want to pedal around and pop some wheelies). While Hyper and their primary production company make the high-end bmx products for elite buyers (AKA kids who already know a little something about bmx and want a good piece of equipment). So at the end of the day Hyper collects their royalties from the commissioned company and Walmart and puts that money back into bmx.
Why the sticker? Walmart wants that kid ( the one who only wishes to pop a wheelie) to know that he can easily buy a bicycle even if he does not come from a family with a large amount of disposable income.
Why does play even want the sticker? Walmart spends a pretty penny on advertising and likely paid enought to easily cover some of the overhead for the contest.
Why do I think less off you? Because if you had your way, Bmx would be so elite that people like me would have never been able to afford to enter Bmx at a young age. As a matter of fact if Bmx were that elite I can't promise i would even want to be a part of it.
