I do not listen to rap or any of that crap! Lol I listen to metal and most rock music. Other hobbies for me are taking care of 4 kids. Not really time for much else except for bmx of course because the kids are getting into it

I'm sorry about that man! That's rough! It's happened to me before so I know how you feel. Keep your head up dude, you'll find a job soon

I'm just fortunate to get off of work at a decent hour so I usually hop on the bike and have access to a lot of solid street spots. I try to ride as much as I can but when it comes to that and YouTube channels there's really not much time with 4 kids ... more »

I live in south Florida and I ride around the beach a lot. But I usually thoroughly clean my bike after every ride. That's the maintainance factor that does play a big role in how long your bike will last

I agree with all of that completely

You have a valid point sir haha! Really the only thing I'll watch is old props videos from back in the day. It brings back a lot of memories for me in terms of the mid school era of bmx. Those were my favorite times in my life

I am fully aware of that of course. But I'm a firm believer in the technology we have these days in the metal working process. I don't want to get into details because it's pointless at this point. Me personally, I would trust pretty much any chromoly ... more »

But again, I am a heavy diesel mechanic and also a metal fabricator. So with that being said, my cheaper premium frame is made from the same materials as the rest. 4130 chromoly is 4130 chromoly whether the frame is made in America or Taiwan or China ... more »

Ok so I'll leave the same materials topic alone for a second and say if I were to buy another frame it would be a cult. Made in America, owned by Robbie morales, and Trey Jones rides for them, he's probably my favorite rider out there!

I agree with giving up. I stopped riding for almost 10 years after injuries. Missed it so badly it was driving me nuts! Got back into it and never looked back! For me it's a getaway from life for a few hours and something I love a lot in life and probably ... more »

I'm digging the throw back profile blackjack! Used to run one way back when in 44t! I'm picking one up as we speak!

I go out and ride. Not into watching other people ride on YouTube. Have fun with that!

Added reply in a thread Pros and cons of frames... 7/27/2016 3:22 PM

Is it me or are pretty much all "high end" frames these days about the same geometry for the most part and usually all made of full chromoly? Who says one company is better than the next? All the same materials.

Man that brings back memories! I want one again! the kids these days will complain that it adds too much weight

Didn't realize it. I saw it up at the top and posted. Dumb ass move of the day! We are all allowed at least one

Yeah man not a problem! I might be literally bolted and sewn together and in constant pain, but I'm still out there riding!

Added reply in a thread What do you guys hate most about BMX? 7/25/2016 5:10 PM

Hmmm you guys are plagued with problems! I think the most irritating thing about bmx is making a thread like this. It's just bitching about this and that. Get on your fucking bikes and ride! Who gives a shit what you ride or what bike you have! If you're ... more »

"Fun" is where I keep it to now! Not trying to be pro with blown out knees, shoulders, ankles, back, etc. I just can't stop riding ever because it's something I've always loved! Just times change and generations change, but I mainly ride by myself and ... more »

Welcome to the sport man! I'll try to answer your questions as best I can since I have over 20 years experience riding bmx under my belt. 1. 30 is not too late at all! I've been riding since I was about 8 and I am now 30 and still riding. As usual I've ... more »
