For every check I think that's a bit much. Once a month that's cool.

Keep putting in seat time. You gotta earn it. Then when you get a trick it feels so good. I've been riding for a year now and have only landed a handful of 180s. So progression takes time and dedication. Enjoy your

I took Stevie Churchill's advise. He said it on Alf's vlog. The one where Stevie builds his latest bike. Alf asks Stevie what tire pressure you run? Stevie replies 50-55psi.

It's called LPS3. Not LS3. My bad.

Reply to Rust inside + good idea? 7/15/2016 3:21 PM

lp3 rust inhibitor in a spray can will do the trick. I use it on engine parts that are sitting around so they don't rust. It's kind of expensive though but it sticks and works great. Make sure you get it good and dry first before you apply it.

For me I am right handed. I throw right handed and I aim with my right eye. Which means my right side is dominant. Some people are ambidextrous which means they can use both sides of their body with equally strength and accuracy. There is a test to see ... more »

Great question Sammy. I can give you a pretty good idea about what to do since I just started grinding myself on a box I built (started about a month ago). I can double peg and feeble so far. First off what foot do you ride forward when doing tricks. ... more »

Thanks for the tips Steve, Dave, and J. I ended up building a box 18" tall x 12' long and the top is 3' feet wide. Top is plywood 2 layers of 1/4". I'm letting the construction adhesive for the rail dry overnight. I've got it the angle iron clamped down

What's up guys? Thanks for stopping by the thread. I'm pretty fresh to the scene. I've had my BMX bike for about a month now and I'm looking to build another ramp and a grind box. I have built a few small ramps out of wood. Both of them are 12" high. ... more »

I'm digg'n the video man. Keep it up the good work. Speaking of HOT... DAMN it was hot today. I was soaking wet when I came inside. Even my socks were sweaty. LOL. I don't see how you guys ride without gloves.

Reply to Triflow for installing grips? 6/23/2016 7:17 PM

I used iso alcohol to install my grips. Pour some on a paper towel. Wipe the bars and pour some in the grip and shake. Pour out the excess and slip them on and adjust position. Super fast and you can ride within 5-10 minutes with no sticky mess. Also ... more »

Yes, Like a nub... I installed the bottom race over the integrated race. I found out later on it was integrated and removed it. I was hoping that would fix the issue but it didn't. I had the same setup as in the picture only problem was the dust cap ... more »

HEHE, that's how you get good. You keep working to get your tricks/lines polished.

They did a good job. I have all the panels off the crx. I didn't pull the glass but all the trim around the glass has been pulled so at least it'll look clean with no overspray or masking lines. Also have the wings west body kit primed and ready for

Very cool, I am getting better and better day by day too. There is so much room between me and the bike when I jump. I keep telling myself to bend my knees to keep the bike up closer to my body. The table top is a lot fun. I want to put a piece of angle

For sure man. That's a very nice whip man. Fresh paint I see. I have been working on getting my paint booth finished up. Today was removing the old Home Depot Epoxy paint off the floor. It's a PITA. I am bout to go over it 1 more time with stripper and
