Yeah Mountain Biking prices are ridiculous, some of that is justified I am sure but I can only assume the margins are a LOT higher than for BMX.

You are playing with words. You get what you pay for, however the people I know with the entry level completes are VERY happy with them and the quality. The unfair criticism/vitriol directed at MB by most BMXers is just ridiculous. I had FAR worse quality ... more »

Sigh, just because there is one bike full cromo at that price point does not make every other bike at that price point rubbish. One problem with BMX is it seems everyone wants quality gear for next to nothing. If you look at Mountain biking you can pay ... more »

At the core of everything, THEY ARE PEOPLE. You can choose to not agree with them, and that is fine. You can have your opinions, and that is fine. You can have your beliefs, and again, that is fine. But know that your comment "I have a hard time looking at gay people in the same...more

This is the sort of thing you need to step back and ask yourself which side of history do you want to be on. You look at something so obvious as jim crow laws and think “well those people couldn’t have thought that something like this was going to last forever”. Your opinion...more

I love my Haro SD v2 Frame, and as Dennis Enarson rides it you can be pretty sure it is decent. (and certainly better than I need) When I was a kid in the 80s I looked up to Dominguez, Wilkerson, Hoffman (Still do), McCoy, Blyther etc. but could never

Skyway T/A. It was on the cover shot of the first BMX magazine I ever bought and that got me into it all (see image for scan of the front cover, I would be devastated if I lost this!).

At 46 (making you guys above look young!) BMX is about getting away for a bit and just having some fun. That could be messing about with mates and pulling lame kick-turns or the buzz of landing that trick you have been working on for a while. Alas I
