Both are fun in their own ways. Pet peeve: Freecoaster rider who claims they loves the silence, but then their bike is super janky and sounds like you dropped a bag full of coins on the ground every time they land.

I already commented about these things, but here is the old Twilight frame back, with the Primo forks. The guy has a hook up on powdercoating, so he did both in black a while back.

The exceptions to this is if you are attempting to work out the 360 to hang 5 Brian Vowell did, or his Bar to hang 5 up a step up hip. Or really anything Tom Stretton did. Guy was a WIZARD with hang 5s.

Too obvious in my mind. A buddy has a sprocket with a chain wrapping around his forearm.

Ryan Nyquist brakeless with a coaster, riding a GT. Honestly I have been pushing this idea as a contest. Put riders on bikes that are the opposite of their normal (brakes VS not, coaster VS not etc) and on terrain they don't tend to ride normally. I'd ... more »

If it makes you feel any better, I've been riding 21 years and can barely air on a good day. I never took the time to get comfortable with it.

This is accurate. I have 0. I think if my initials were LD I would do the logo for sure. I've always wanted a bike-related tattoo, but now I am into all kinds of bikes, so what do I pick? I'm kinda stuck honestly.

That looks like an "I under/over rotated a spin or botched a whip attempt too many times" crack. You could drill a small hole on either end, then weld it up and get a little more life out of it, but it is new frame time ASAP.

I rode the concrete park about 25 miles from my home last week, for about 10 minutes. It was super windy and cold. Planning to go back this week.

My guess is small competitor list, everyone has their own "rest" spot around the course, only a couple riders at a time on the course, masks likely needed for riding (unless outside, but maybe even then). I could also see a vaccine requirement early into having events like this. Probably few to no spectators too.

At the very least it is a good thing to see events starting to be looked into, even if they are not the same as they once were.

130 miles to the East is the Nowear Compound-a free, indoor and outdoor spot with ramps, trails and so on.
