I remember when the saying 'new world order' was first used back in the 90s... that was nothing, when this covid-19 BS ends, THEN we'll see a new world order...

I could not agree MORE with this... all of it! The weight is a tiny bit much though, but nothing unbearable. The geometry, the color, AND the welded brake mounts on the chainstays? That's the BEST option EVER! I remember Taj in an interview saying something like 'ultra light bikes are NOT the best option, for every person there's an ideal weight!' Both Taj and Wade are right!!

Refreshing indeed! Not only there isn't a single grind here (on 99% of 'pegless' edits, people still grind... so put your pegs back), but also NO barspins and NO tailwhips! Creativity at its best! Plus, he's on a cassette! And those mega-chicago bars are funny...

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...

Colony Prody

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!

"...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"...

Added a comment about video Chris Childs in "Grow Up" 4/19/2017 12:06 AM

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

somebody hire this man to create the next cool BMX course for some contest and make BMX contests fun and creative again, not some barspin battle...

Added a comment about video Mike Varga - First 1260 & 900 Tailwhip! 1/17/2017 11:08 PM

Now, that was legit! He is pulling those on ramps that you can easily find at parks and backyards, not those abnormally gigantic ramps those nitro circus dudes ride. If a guy jumps out of a plane and pull a million-tailwhip, that's NOT a record, that's some BS for TV only. This is the real thing!
Besides, I'd say you're ready to try those on skateparks and what not, Mike!
The 1260 and 900 tailwhip are a reality, those quadruple tailwhips from the circus are not...

i really like Tencio's bars being quite narrow on the bottom there... what does he ride? Are those eastern bars?
