Back when I wasn't running dual uppers I would use electrical tape on the splitter part. Hold it to the bar and wrap it up.

Same, I LOSE it when I hear that one. His deal about Steven Segall is also FANTASTIC.

Added reply in a thread What brands do you gravitate towards to when buying? 7/7/2020 4:20 AM

I look for decent reviews and what I like at that time, ALSO I try to make sure it isn't a clone of every locals bike. I like to have something less common.

This. Post up a video for some critiquing. We can only take what you say is happening as accurate, and sometimes your viewpoint is skewed.

I have Grandstand PCs and some Osiris shoes and rarely have an issue.

Cranmers, and sometimes Spencer's or Jay Dalton's dealio. Otherwise I don't really pay attention to that stuff.

Ballpark 1000 to 1500ish MSRP. I got a lot used or through the shop I part timed at for cost. Frame was DIRT cheap that way.

My Demolition Zeros are awesome. Underrated in my book. I'm on a secondhand set. No issues aside from impact scratches from grinds. Had a set of red ones before the current set, awesome. I know a guy running the Black Chrome set from about 13 years ago, ... more »

Was it him or someone else who yelled it? Either way, kid's a champ for going for it. Honestly he has more skill than some of the smack talkers I see online...

Added reply in a thread 25.4 handlebars and stem? 7/3/2020 5:18 AM

Explain why I have about 13-14 years with a stem without a SINGLE bar slip? I've had around 4-5 sets of bars on this stem. I briefly ran a couple others, came back to this one. No slips on a Profile Acoustic or Demolition front load either. Perhaps it ... more »

Check your local track out-sometimes they have loaner bikes you can borrow or rent for a day-we did that for my son one year. I also know locally, depending on the amount of riders for your age group, you might get tossed in with people on cruisers etc. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Pinned rim seperated a little 7/2/2020 4:47 AM

You can ride it BUT you might have more flats from any flex that develops or sharp spots. As to brakes, it will chew the pads a tiny bit more. Source: I have ridden pinned seam rims that did that exact thing.

Go 4.5 foot if you want to be able to peg stall without basically laying the bike on it's side or making it super hard to ride.

Added reply in a thread Protective Gear 7/1/2020 5:24 AM

I thought I recall seeing that Aitken didn't have one on. Cranmer did, BUT the injury was more to his neck and slamming his head down. A helmet is designed to take the brunt of the impact and spread it out so it does less damage to you. They don't necessarily ... more »

Added reply in a thread YouTube BMX? 7/1/2020 5:18 AM

People also like progression. Scotty's videos show a ton of it. The best part is many of the tricks they show are first time pulled etc-as in they are sketchy landings, some crashes etc, but they are all clearly having a good time. It's real riding. ... more »
