Added reply in a thread demolition tire 4/24/2014 12:29 PM

Don't ever simply bash a company from one bad experience. I've purchased demolition parts for a long time, and the Momentum is one of the most popular tires in the street game today. Almost everyone I know has ridden them. It might just be a manufacturing ... more »

Double-walled rim, sealed bearings. May be cheap in price but id say you got a damn good wheel.

I understand that tailwhips and bars cant really compare to skate tricks, but since whips and bars are difficult bmx tricks, why not pair them up with skate tricks that are equally as difficult rather than tricks that just look the same?

as far as grinds are concerned, the following match up pretty evenly: BMX --> Skate Feeble --> Feeble Smith --> Smith Double Peg --> 50-50 Tooth --> FS 5-0 Ice --> BS 5-0 Crankarm --> Boardslide

I hangout with a lot of skateboarders. I would like to play SKATE with them when they play, but I'm obviously on a bicycle. Has anyone ever thought of compiling a list of tricks, comparing bmx and skate tricks (compatible either by method or by difficulty) ... more »

Vital developers: The blue nav bar at the top (#main_nav_wrapper) of the page resizes to the width of the window. This means when you scroll right, the blue bar ends and the black text ("News", "Forum", "Store", etc.) is hard to see due to the black ... more »

If you are a heavier build id consider a dirt jumper/26" hardtail mountain bike. It will ride like a bmx bike but it should be a little stronger. youll feel more comfortable on it.

streetblocks for sure. I use the powerblocks for racing and the tread design is genius. Streetblocks are a beefed up version for street. Deffffff a good tire

Added reply in a thread making dirt jumps 3/12/2014 2:28 PM

Like the first reply said, go ride some trails first, that will give you an idea to start with. And, they wont be perfect right away. After you ride your lips a few times, you'll need to adjust them according to how difficult/easy they are. As far as ... more »

Added reply in a thread Turning taps into 3's? 3/12/2014 2:14 PM

Out of a bank is by far the best way to learn. Any kind of flyout will do really. And once you get it dialed out of those, just translate those techniques to flat and you'll start doing flat 3s.
