Yes, Kink still sponsors great riders and makes good parts. As always, just make sure whatever frame you get is 100% Full 4130 chromoly steel.

You don't "KNOW" anything. You're anxious and afraid. Thats why you seize up when you land. So IMO, you're not comfortable enough on your bike for big drops yet. Start small. Gain confidence in landing with your back tire first and compressing your body ... more »

Honestly if you're 5'11" and feeling cramped on a 20.5" TT, a 21" or 21.25" frame is gonna feel incredible. Tim has a T1 Hickerson frame with a 21.25" TT for a pretty good price in the for sale forum. I'm 6'1" and started with a 20.8" Once I got onto ... more »

I just buy whatever is the highest hi-top and pro. Nothing else.

Added reply in a thread All my joints are stiff and they hurt (from bmxing) 4/21/2019 8:18 AM

Stretch before and after every ride. Buy foam roller and use it. Do yoga. Get good sleep. Take care of yourself. But to be honest, if you're feeling constant pain in your joints and having trouble walking, it's probably not BMX. You may have some underlying ... more »

What model stem is this? Thanks Tim but I'm gonna pass, I want to try exactly 50mm reach since I've never really given a shit about geo until figuring this out.

I hate to conflate this into "THIS IS THE PROBLEM WITH AMERICA!" but it kinda is. This is exactly why healthcare companies can charge you $6,000 for something that costs $400. They rely on people that just say "Oh its too much work to make a couple phone ... more »

I actually agree. I don't like Adam22, or Nate Richter that much, or Catfish that much, but I do enjoy these videos. It's nice to kinda aggregate some of the videos and see some random stuff. I like that there isn't much structure to it.

Looking for a new stem. Topload - 50 mm reach and 30 mm rise. I prefer black, or polished, but I'm open to anything anyone's got. Let me know!
