Added reply in a thread Companies whose frames you would be scared to ride 2/20/2019 11:31 AM

I would embrace those, and laugh when those frames outlast the aftermarket stuff those a-holes ride. I did that a couple times back in the day. Always fun.

Added reply in a thread Lazy River Skate park. What!?!? 2/20/2019 5:11 AM

I would message them on something and ask about it. I would bet that you could sneak a session in early one morning too. As to the 18' tall part-that's bonkers, but would be SO MUCH FUN to carve around at speed.

It is accurate-but factoring in tires etc will tweak it some. I have used that to level pictures I have put up on walls. There is also a compass.

If it is a collection thing, not wasteful. If it is to ride to current standards, there is better for the money. Kind of a crappy attitude you have about it though...do you hate everything classic or from when you were younger now?

Heal up fast dude, you gotta come ride when Xgames is in Minneapolis!

Honestly, if it was handed to me and chromoly, I would give it a go. My riding is so much different now than it was 10 years ago that I wouldn't likely snap, or even bend a frame anymore. It's pretty rare I get into HUCK IT mode these days.

Ease into riding as your body isn't used to the stresses it brings.

Added reply in a thread What's the difference: Expensive or Cheap Crank-arms? 2/19/2019 5:18 AM

Have you looked into Salt Plus? They have profile like cranks for around 100 bucks. Or Stolen does too. There are deals, you gotta look for em. But the quality, durability and materials are what make them cost more. Better metal, better welding, better ... more »

While you are right, you can go fast on a coaster, a large majority of the riders out there (especially on the pro level) don't.

I have the typical old-fart life has changed my priorities-2 kids, a full time job, house etc. Plus the fact that it is winter and we got like 2 feet of snow in the last few weeks, right after it was -30F with a windchill of -65F.

Watched it, and he is doing it to be a turd.

Wish I had that option...been MONTHS for me. November was the last time I got to ride the BMX. Hopefully I will get to a park sometime soon and get a session in.

Added reply in a thread Spencer Foresman crying about other pro riders not including him? 2/15/2019 7:16 AM

I would guess it is because he is giving them a hard time like he does to literally everyone all the time because he is just goofing around.

Dang dude, good luck on the healing! Hopefully it gets you to a point of being able to ride decently again! And I feel your pain with not riding a while-been since november that I rode my BMX. Sucks hard.

Bruce Crisman after Xgames dabbled with a coaster too. Guy was super under-rated.

Val's in St. Cloud MN. Voted the best fries in MN! http://valshamburgers.com/#menu SO GOOD. One of the dudes who works there used to ride too. Mom and Pop shops are the best for nearly everything.

I hit 20 years on BMX this year. I get nostalgic of moves I used to hammer out on the daily that I wouldn't even consider trying these days (straight throw double bars, bar to 540 tire taps, 900 tire taps, trucks, oppo 360s, whips to one foot on both ... more »

This is a reasonably old thread being that there has been zero activity for over 2 months. Back in the day seats weren't slammed, and you actually would pinch the seat with your knees. It does make it easier too. Because you can start doing flyout bars ... more »
