There's some names in here I hadn't thought of in a while. Panza put up a Baltimore video this year. He's not always my favorite either, but it was cool to see one of the well knowns riding here.

This i what I like to do. I work night shift and get off in the mornings, so I can do things during the day when the normal folks are working or going to school. I do my street riding in the city on weekend mornings when almost no one is out and I go ... more »

You ain't kidding. I fall often, usually when I'm doing something silly and let the bike out from under me. Usually no big deal because I wear pads and a full face. A few weeks ago I was trying a double I had never cleared before and was so focused on ... more »

Short answer is don't do it if it hurts. Your knee will tell you if it's a problem. The difficulty of the exercise, and the level of danger it potentially poses will vary greatly with your body weight, your strength and the weight you can carry, and ... more »

I've gotten into some trail riding and dirt jumping myself this year. It's definitely a different skill set from what you use on the street. The adrenaline rush is in fact great and hasn't worn off one bit for me as of yet. I'm also lucky enough to have ... more »

That's pretty much the long and short of it. The occasional day off is definitely important. I do weight lifting workouts and as part of my assistance work I do a rotation of various hand/ forearm work. Currently I rotate through five exercises, one ... more »

Easy PARtner. Sarcasm and humor are sometimes lost in translation between words and text. Some folks are PARtial to their own brand of humor and not everyone may readily PARtake in yours.

Parallels what I was thinking.

Given the tendencies of today's youth, that'd be about par for the course.

Hah, ditto! It's been a few years for me as well, but I do recall always having good dealings with them. I guess if nothing else ir speaks to the strength of BMX as whole that it's worth it for Amain to make the investment in whatever is left of Danscomp. ... more »

Merrit Ft1’s fit in this category as well. I got a pair in 2.25 in anticipation of riding some dirt myself. Haven’t gotten to ride them as much as I’d like yet, but so far I like them. Albes lists them in 2.35 also. I had Faf 2.25’s before and they were ... more »

Another positive for Upgrade001. He was pleasant to communicate with. Parts are as he described and he shipped them fast.

Added reply in a thread Looking for some advice on a new BMX 7/21/2019 9:48 PM

How far are you commuting? Honestly, these days if I'm going more than about 5 miles one way, I prefer a larger frame, like a MTB. For longer distance riding on the BMX I tend to like my older frames. I have a Hoffman Dirt Merchant (early 2000's I think) ... more »

Add another positive for HondaCRFRacer. I bought a fork, which he packed up nicely and shipped fast. Pleasure to deal with.

Congrats Dude. I can't believe it's been 7 years already since 2014. I really am getting old (so old I can't remember how to add). 1. Someone give me a cigarette and some shades quick so I can take a cool profile pic for myself 2. Finally

Just off hand I at least have cranks, a stem, forks, and seat/ post. Not sure, but I might have a front wheel. All my extra back wheels are freecoaster, so probably not of much use.

I definitely have some parts around. Nothing top of the line, but should be good enough to be functional at least. I would love to see some of it go to use instead of just lying around. I haven't shipped anything international before, but I would hope ... more »
