Added a comment about video Jamie Bestwick - New Role at Woodward, Vert's Future, His Competition Future, and More 4/15/2021 10:34 PM

IMO Vert is dying for a few simple reasons the main one being ramps. Hear me out.

1. You can only ride very on a vert ramp and there are not very many because reason number 2
2. Vert ramps are more expensive to build and maintain, take up lots of park space, and get ridden less than your average bowl or quarter which makes it an almost bad financial decision for smaller parks.
3. Because it takes some dedication and ramp time to get good at it, combined with the scarcity of ramps to ride it on, it is by default losing popularity which further accelerates the deference to construct additional ramps which are necessary to increase its popularity. Street is more popular because there are more places to ride it. Most of the vert tricks have already been done in the streets too. It's an issue of ramps.

Agreed. He does a lot of hard tricks mixed with finesse and power and has quite an ample trick list. Like he's a street rider but can ride ramps like a ramp rider and does more than grind and 180 on street set ups.

if you're using a hacksaw, a life hack is to buy blades specifically for cutting metal (theyre usually graded as to the type of metal thickness they are designed for) as theyll last longer and make cutting easier.

Not really many options if the part you want to ride is only avaialble in heavy. It's just something you have to accept. Its nice to have a lighter bike but having one a bit heavier isn't too hard to adjust to either. Try not to give it too much thought ... more »
