Reply to What ever happened to Felt BMX bikes? 3/31/2018 11:42 AM

The only reason this is fresh in my brain is because I was recently at the Olympic Training Center with the USA Freestyle Team and their track team is sponsored Felt. The name hadn't crossed my mind in years! It's honestly a shame - Felt did a lot of ... more »

Definitely not true - they have a huge presence in road cycling. If I recall, their BMX bikes are (or were) only distributed in Germany? I may be incorrect, but I know a portion of the company is owned by their German distributor (Sport Import) and they ... more »

Reply to Callum Bibby kicked off Mafia 3/30/2018 8:40 AM

I missed most of this so my opinion is solely based on my understanding of the situation (which may or may not be the whole story), but kicking him off the team for having the passion to stand up for the brand seems like a pretty big miss. I understand ... more »

Legitimately have no clue or insider info here. The three guesses I'd throw out there are Subrosa, GT, or WeThePeople, but could be anyone! Regardless, Mark kills it. I'm a fan.

I believe Devon Smillie does.

Reply to Is there a mobile app to use for this forum? 3/1/2018 3:49 PM

We built out the mobile forum on the site as opposed to an app. Apps are difficult because you can't link into them, so for us (keep in mind, we're a very small crew) it makes a lot more sense to do it this way.

Robbie is a great guy. He was always helpful to me when I was younger and continues to have one of the most valuable, progressive minds in the BMX world. You can't win 'em all, but he definitely gets my thumbs up.

Gordy's on the north side of the city is dope.

I can only really speak for North Carolina (I live on the West Coast, but spend a lot of time there), but it's good. Dhers' indoor park can be fun. In that general area, Marsh Creek and Cary parks are good. If you can get in, Nyquist's Unit park in Greenville ... more »

You are a brilliant man.

Reply to Doughp. Small BMX business idea? 2/19/2018 11:35 AM

I don't feel like BMX needs any more clothing companies (or any type of companies, for that matter) without a solid purpose beyond "selling stuff to fund making more stuff to sell." Stack some cash before you dive in so you can legitimately sponsor some ... more »

Reply to What is the difference between Vans Old Skool and Vans Ward 2/18/2018 10:33 AM

I believe the Ward is a cheaper, price-point shoe made for bigger stores, while the Old Skool is of higher quality and made for skate shops and such... I doubt they'll be any higher than your current shoe (if you buy the low-top model), but they should ... more »

Reply to “No Spray Painting!” reads Trey Jones’s new rule. 2/18/2018 10:29 AM

I strongly agree with the last three paragraphs here (other than the part about not being able to stand Trey... haha).

Reply to “No Spray Painting!” reads Trey Jones’s new rule. 2/17/2018 7:58 PM

I understand where Trey is coming from. I think the way he said "crew" or "new company" (in quotations) came off as condescending and that's where a lot of these problems came from. Either way, it really isn't a big deal. The paint or the act of being ... more »

Irek did do the quint whip first - but it was on a much bigger ramp.
