Added a comment about feature USA Cycling Speaks for First Time on Freestyle in The Olympics 10/16/2017 2:04 PM

The UCI knows nothing about Freestyle BMX. USABMX knows little more. I'm not confident there will be anything beyond qualifying for the Olympic team. For the two riders who will compete it's a huge honor but for the rest of the riders, it will be expensive and not a reflection of what freestyle is, has been or will be. The UCI has taken the fun out of every other form of cycling with their power trip and ego. They should be organizers, not dictators. A national contest series has been needed for years but not with entry fees like the World's had. I just don't see it helping the sport as a whole without the right people making the decisions.

I doubt they are making millions. Nobody in BMX does. I live near Philadelphia, PA and see tons of riders that get flow from Hyper and Snafu. I've seen them support the scene many times over the years. They surely don't have the money to buy any factory ... more »

Do you realize the money from those bikes pays team riders' salaries and travel expenses? It also pays for the high end products they ride.

I've snapped bars, stems, forks, axles, frames, cranks, pedals, sprockets, gyros, cables, brakes, levers, seats, seat posts, wheels and pegs. It happens.

I grew up with a coaster brake. When I switched to freecoaster I always wanted minimal slack. I think having a lot of slack in the freecoaster is a mistake most riders use because you are maximizing the non back pedal without the learning curve of minimal slack. I have used the pedal pressure while rolling backwards to slow my roll backs. It's a finesse. It's also a personal choice. Either way, Dan is awesome.

These are about the strongest pedals out there. Choice of street riders in NY/NJ area.

Chad Kerley rides a 20.8" and Dennis Enarson rides a 21". Think about the difference there. Think about the difference in their heights. Does the TT length really matter that much or is it just what you are used to? Most guys have only ridden between ... more »

Safety yellow with black. Nothing better than a bumble bee bike. Leigh is my favorite Eastern rider because he has style, class, roots and is a funny dude. My favorite bike shop is Cyclesonic because they are the bmx headquarters of my area and a block from my house.
