you have a good point there, ramps ARE getting bigger in general, and it does bring the kids attention to BMX, and I remember back in the day when a 5 ft jump ramp would be considered huge (today is kiddies play).
The thing is I was kind of thinking like the olympics, where the dimensions never change. It's not like 'ok, so men can run 100 meters in less than 10 seconds, let's change it to 90 meters - OMG now men run in less than 9 seconds! Rad!' you know?
Mat Hoffman was able to blast 15 foot airs on a 11 feet ramp. Let's see someone beat that - on a 11 feet ramp, not on a 25 ft ramp!
Someone did a double flip on a 8ft tall jumpbox? Try the triple on the same ramp, not on a 50 ft tall jump with a 150ft roll in!

No hate here, just saying that to me this isn't BMX, it's just some circus/freak show. Something you can't duplicate on your local park.
When I see a video and the guy pulls a triple barspin down a set of stairs, it's awesome as hell and it gets me psyched to ride, but if some same guy jumps off a cliff and do 45 barspins b4 opening his chute, what's the point?
I remember years ago when there was this 'bet' on who was gonna pull the first triple barspin on vert, and it was cool because they were trying it on a 'normal' vert ramp that everybody rode. Now that's testing the limits.
And when they actually did the triple bar, they didn't came up with a bigger ramp to try a 4, 7 or 10spins barspin. That's BMX.
Jumping from the moon and doing a 879backflip is not.

switching the axle would be a hassle, I know, but after that there'll be no need for a 17mm socket tool or this seatpost, the 6mm allen would be all you need.
or you could buy a rear hub that already comes with a female axle!

wouldn't it be easier to switch the axles to female ones? Then all you'll need is almighty 6mm allen for the pivotal AND the pegs!

bars, gear ratio and chain tension! I know it sounds crazy, but I must have the perfect tension on my chain, not too tight not too loose!

I'm with Eddy, it's nice to see that bikes aren't all chrome like in the 90's or all black like in the early 2000's, plus Aaron kills it, no doubt, but all this 'orange pop bike' or 'watermelon bike' or even 'grape juice bike' or whatever, doesn't look cool, they look like 3-year old bikes! And sometimes 3-year old girl bikes...!
