Your opinion/respect for the other side of your opinion and the fact that all sides exist are all a perfect representation of the Freestyle nature of things in life/bmx. It all exists and can exist because so many people have differing opinions and support ... more »

This is a topic that can go super deep and sooo many different directions. At the end of the day, a BMX company is a business and companies need to make money to survive. A rider is essentially a billboard for a company and the money/resources they put ... more »

https://youtu.be/FY_V01RnmZ8 I've ridden this hub a few times now. Having only ridden other's bikes with coasters and never actually had one on my bike, I can officially say I'm converted. My last session on this thing was at the skatepark after our ... more »

I have to chime in here, and not just because I represent the company. While I do agree that someone doesn't necessarily deserve signature product for simply being one of the best guys at their local park, I also know that Jacob is way above that and ... more »

Reply to New cassette or repair old one? 5/18/2018 9:16 PM

While that non drive side flange is a little beat up, If this is a bearing issue you absolutely dont have to replace the entire hub. The inner hub shell bearings are only like 10$ each depending on which ones you get and they aren't tooooo hard to replace. ... more »

New thread Catch up on BMX with a News Video 5/18/2018 8:57 PM

This week I'm sure you've all seen and heard about the passing of Paul Buchanan. It is the first news topic covered in my weekly news video and I've got to admit that I really didn't know anything about him. Something I felt bad about at first, but it ... more »

Reply to Are Video Parts Dying? 5/18/2018 8:45 PM

This is definitely an interesting topic to discuss. The view counts on riding videos online have been dramatically decreasing for a few years now. There's still a huge number of riding videos coming out every week,but view counts now are so much lower ... more »

Oh absolutely agree with that. We rode at Ray's the last open weekend and he was 360'ing the spine higher than anyone else jumps it. Insanity. That sounds like a perfect plan! Thanks for listening. Let me know what you think

Thanks fellas. Nick is such a good dude

I feel like a lot of you will be into the things we talked about in this. If not, the Montana Ricky one is probably more your speed. Its a boring Saturday night and I can't wait to ride tomorrow!!!! https://youtu.be/zjWRwJ78TY8

I realized this years ago when brake troubles forced me to recognize and change something. Hopefully it can help a few people. https://youtu.be/vPMsJdCABps

Reply to How much do you think crank length matters? 1/3/2018 8:14 PM

That was a different study than the one that found the 3% gearing change. I couldn’t find that one again somehow so I can’t reference it exactly. Regardless though you’re probably right in that the difference is probably negligible. In my opinion, never ... more »

New thread How much do you think crank length matters? 1/3/2018 4:42 PM

https://youtu.be/9--YwC9CG7g Personally, I don't believe that a 20mm total difference in where my feet are at between 175 and 165 cranks could make me hop higher or spin faster, but I've been wrong about crazier things.

Reply to An Honest How To Get "Sponsored" Video 12/13/2017 8:33 PM

My views on this are just a little different. Being a sponsored rider to me means that a company is getting behind you and what you do already. Maybe they want you to do a few things you aren’t already doing, but generally I feel like those who are in ... more »

Reply to An Honest How To Get "Sponsored" Video 12/13/2017 9:11 AM

Yea you guys are both right. I definitely should've talked about how it's okay to dream and having a broken bike sucks. Lots of missed points, thats for sure. This video was mainly made for the people who only care about being sponsored and attempts ... more »

About 37 too many! haha Yea I generally dont care much about what others are doing. But when it comes to educating younger riders and maybe having a positive impact on them I'm all about it.
