I have been wanting to ride this one spot for a while but haven't had the chance to. Tonight I did! I wish I had wax so I could grind, but I worked on dub pegs stalls to hopping out (been having trouble getting out of stalls and grinds) I got a couple!

yeah....don't do that with a bike you want to keep. pick up a yard sale/craigslist bike if you want to jump it into a lake. My suggestion for learning new tricks: Pad Up & Man Up.

Added reply in a thread What lube should I use for a Rear Hub Overhaul 7/31/2018 7:31 AM

Boom! That's the answer I was hoping for! Something easy and cheap. I picked up a cheap used bike to practice doing this sort of thing on so when I do it on my main bike, I will have an idea of what I'm doing. If I mess up the old bike, it's not gonna ... more »

I just picked up a used bike and the back hub is a mess. I'm going to go in there and clean it out really well then regrease/lube/oil it up and be good as new! The only thing is, I have no clue what type of grease/lube/oil to use. What lube/grease/oil ... more »

I found a bent post the other day (in between downpours). It's what connects those cable to phone poles and secures them into the ground. The cables were gone and just the post remained. I was able to play around on that for a bit. Mostly peg chinks, ... more »

Do you know how to order it? I can't find it on their site and the shop redirects to sourcebmx.com

That's what I've noticed. A lot less writing, a lot more videos/talking. There's just something about flipping through pages though, ya know?

When I was younger I used to love reading BMX magazines. Now that I'm older and getting back into BMX, I'm wondering...Are there any print magazines left? I can't seem to find anybody who still makes actual magazines. Am I just looking in the wrong places? ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why can I land tricks consistently sometimes but not other times 7/17/2018 6:02 AM

I run into the same issues. I have days when I can spin, days when I can hop, days when I can grind. It all depends on the day. Fatigue and random muscle aches dictate what I can and can't do on any given day. Some days are great, others suck. When I'm ... more »

I rode the spot, It was cool. There was an employee working and saw me through their window. He didn't do anything. He just kept working and I kept riding. It's a fun little spot. I noticed it has been used before. I found the ledges were already waxed! ... more »
