Happy birthday friend!! I remember a year and a few months ago, when I re-discovered Bmx and came on this forum, you were one of the most welcoming to me. You even helped me make my decision on buying my bike. May you have 50 more years buddy!!!

Added reply in a thread Opinions on the double walled rims that come with GT beginner complete bikes? 1/17/2022 9:57 PM

Aside from the double wall rims, what else can you tell us about the bike? Is the frame full chromoly? How about the bars and forks? The frame probably is most important. Especially if you're a grown adult. You want something that can handle your weight. ... more »

Haven't ridden in a good 2 weeks. Spent the holidays out of state, so I thought I was gonna be real rusty. when I went to the local today. After about 15 or so minutes, I started to feel it and rode like I haven't been away. I was lazy to go at first ... more »

Couldn't agree more. For me personally, I enjoy riding so mush, that I don't even think of it as excercise. Even though I'm sweating my ass off.
