It isn't really a surprise since nike is not a BMX brand. When a Brand that was born on BMX leaves BMX, it's because of something serious, but when some 'outside' company gets into BMX, the minute some small problem arrives, the first thing they do is shut down BMX...

Hell yes they matter! For me it's: - high tops, always! Or at the very least, mid tops.I'd rather ride high or mid tops and 'regular' shin pads than low-tops with those 'ankle-protection shin pads'... - a flat, grippy sole. Vans' are the best ever but ... more »

Brakes! Hooder is riding brakes! Street riding! So, soon kids will start riding brakes again! 48h wheels! Seans Burns is riding them! Street riding! So, soon kids will start riding 48h wheels again!

it brings me back when street riding was just beginning to be a 'thing', and everybody was riding frames with platforms like prody's and rear brake only, no gyro, and sometimes even no pegs. This bike is very '1989' (including the tall seatpost). Nice!

To me, these are the companies that once were on the top of the game but now they seem to have lost their momentum: * Hoffman - They used to be really big, but now 90% of their line is kind of mid-level. Still love them thought. * Flybikes - I remember ... more »

I also forgot to mention tricks like brakeless abubacas / fufanus and foot jams... what's the point of taking your brakes off and doing adapted brake-type tricks? I know I'm gonna get a lot of bombs for this but they look stupid, even foot jams! Add ... more »

Once I was about to grind some concrete ledge down some stairs and I bunnyhopped way too much and my front peg landed 2 inches from the very end of it, and the peg stuck to the concrete, and since there was no more ledge left, the front wheel flipped ... more »

seat / seatpost combos I won't ever own one of those. No adjustment, the post is always too short... Thanks but no thanks I also hate super short stems in general. Maybe it's the old school in me, or the trail rider in me, but I tried some of these 50-45 ... more »

Today's chromoly parts have been worked to near perfection, and what I mean is, why pay a lot more for a titanium part just to lose a bit of weight? Maybe a ti frame or handlebars have a considerable difference of weight next to chromoly ones, but on ... more »

"...take your sport seriously in how you train, how you eat, how you sleep and recover,..."
is it me or does this sound like the fun factor of freestyle has been completely killed off? Will our worst nightmare come true? Are these guys gonna become those super athletes who only train to get medals and not for the fun of it?...

Finally I can watch people riding and actually having fun while doing it, even at a contest. Men's pro finals were sooo boring, with the robotic million-tailwhip per jump. Aside from a frontflip 360 here and there, park riders these days are incredibly uncreative. Is that what it takes to win these days, 500 flairs, tailwhips and barspins per run, and absolutely NO style at all? Bring back the people and keep these robots locked, please!

I understand there will be some regulations since it's a global venue and whatever, but please just don't 'over-regulate' it, you know? Keep it freestyle, don't turn it into gymnastics or something like that...

Added a comment about video Dennis McCoy Speaks on the Vans BMX Pro Cup 5/7/2017 1:38 AM

For me, I'm so so happy to see an event like this. To me BMX is all about going fast, and not doing 300 different types of grind on a 10-foot rail. Street is cool too, but when I hear the word 'park' I always think 'fast' ang 'high'. To think about grinds we should hear the words 'plaza' or 'street', but anything goes, it's BMX

Added a comment about video How To Install Gyro Cables with Colony 4/20/2017 9:46 AM

I'm sorry, I'm really into Colony's products and riders, but those how-tos from colony are terrible. hahaha! They're like, "to install the cables just put then in place and go"... what about how to adjust the tension on each side so the gyro works perfectly? What about giving tips about the size of the upper cables acording to the bars' rise?
The same with the stem how to. No tips on bars positioning, or even how to tight the bolts properly! You know, tightening them in an 'X' sequence, so you don't strip any bolts and to get an even pressure on the bars so they don't move. Again, it was "place the stem here, the bars here, tight the bolts and go"...

one of the best videos parts in a loooong time. Just a few barspins, not a single tailwhip, and he likes to haul ass at everything (it's a BMX bike, not a skateboard! It's meant to go fast! The same old bars-grind-bars-'some trick'-bars-grind combos are pretty annoying).
And just in case Sunday lets him go, he'd be right at home in the bonedeth team haha
