Reply to Husky Nation Stickers 10/4/2020 12:46 AM

Edited my original reply - turns out I ordered them late last year not earlier this year

I ordered a bunch of his stickers late last year and still have these, which I have no plans for. Happy to send them out to you if you want them.

Reply to Can I Isolate the "Hop" Part of a Bunny Hop for Practice? 9/11/2020 1:34 AM

Oh yeah, something I forgot to mention (that I wish I'd discovered waaay sooner) is to 'pre-load' the pull-up part. By that I mean; before you pull up, push down hard into the ground through the front forks. Much of that force shoved into the front tyre ... more »

Nice vids, man. For more height try pulling the bars all the way up to your hips, back straight, leap and push the bars forward (like you're already doing), dip your toes and scoop your feet back and bring them up under your arse when you leave the ground.

Reply to Bmx freestyle size for 9 yearsold 8/27/2020 9:51 AM

Hi Sinem. For his age and size a 20" may be on the heavy side for attempting tricks. My 7 year old (120cm) rides a 16" and has progressed very well with it because it's light and he can manoeuvre it easily. I'd say either a 16" or 18" could be good to ... more »

Reply to What is better: Haro boulevard or kink gap 8/24/2020 10:52 AM

Haro do make some decent bikes. However, the Boulevard isn't one of them. I ride a Haro and love it, but I'm an old geezer who remembers them from way back when they ruled

So it pains me to say: the Kink is the better of the two.

Haha. Oh it definitely crossed my mind but I was so angry the best thing for everyone was to just keep shtum and write her off as a muppet. Glad my wife wasn't with us. It would have royally kicked off. 🙄

It's a sad state of affairs. Hopefully leading by example will eventually break the assumptions/stigma around being an active, present dad in the modern era. Respect to all the bmx dads! 👊🏻

Welcome back, old man! 😂 42yo re-starter here and loving the new lease on life. Mentally and physically. I know exactly what you mean about hitting the parks alone. Last year I was sat on my bike watching my boy at our local when some random woman started ... more »

Reply to Bmx model help 8/9/2020 10:26 AM

It certainly looks like a Mini Burner though this is the first time I've seen one without the Burner/Mini Burner specific decal designs. There appear to be others out there with the 'bmx 16' decals but I can't work out what separates this model from ... more »

Tell that to my dead father.

Reply to 16" bmx for 9yr old 7/12/2020 1:08 AM

From experience a 16 or 18 (depending on his size) could be a pretty solid move. I started my 6yr old on a 16" last year, the idea being that he begins with the advantage of being able to manhandle the thing the way we do with our 20s and I think it

Reply to What'd you do to your bike today? 4/28/2020 8:42 AM

After 3+ weeks of constant sunshine I figured I'd put my summer tyres on. After that I watched it absolutely piss down outside for the rest of the day.

Reply to How far do you regularly ride your 20? 1/25/2020 9:56 AM

I ride about 5 miles to work and back up to 5 days a week (except when it rains) and do about 4 miles around the city on my lunch break looking for new shit to do. Running 25/9. Seat stays low, never use it. Can be hard on my knees sometimes.

Reply to Bmx/Freestyle stuff for Christmas? 12/27/2019 12:25 PM

I got a Tall Order Pocket Socket and will be rinsing a gift card from the mother-in-law on some fresh Vans on Monday.

I sub to Scotty Cranmer, Spencer Foresman, Billy Perry and Douglas Thompsons's channels. Only watch Anthony Panza if he's on his own.

Put on a pair of Maxxis Holy Rollers and broke my generic chain tool trying to install a Shadow Interlock v2 (and immediately ordered the (recommended) Shadow tool from Amazon)

Reply to Best tires for in the wet 11/16/2019 9:35 AM

This time of year I ride Primo V-monsters for a bit of grip, wear a set of overalls and just avoid puddles wherever possible. Still get a damp ass but the extra layer makes it slightly less shit.

Reply to The "I went riding today" -thread 11/16/2019 9:18 AM

I rode tentatively to work on a cheap chain I installed last night. A boring 10 mile round trip just hopping shit in the rain letting it bed in.
