I'm an older guy, an ex-racer who got back into BMX last year. I don't ride 20" any more, though... even the long TT models feel sketchy to me. I have a GHP Twenty4 which I ride on the track from time to time, but pretty much I ride street/park on my Mirraco 20Forty. Eventually I want to start riding some trails and get into dirt jumping.

So what do you use your "cruiser" for?

I don't ride a BMX bike to look cool to others, I do it because it's fun and never do I think "Boy I sure am cool on my BMX bike."

Anything but cruising! Mainly Dirt, some park and zero street.

I used to race bmx up until about 6 months ago. i still have a h&h cruiser somewhere at my parents place, i need some parts but it will be up and running. My new mtb park they just built is all wood and all ramps. Some dudes are riding regular cruisers and they have a blast, i rode the new sunday through there and it was a lot of fun. Im gonna build mine up to cruise through the park. Ive hit the trails a couple times on one but prefer my 20.

I just bought one for commuting.

Currently commute on a 20" and wanted a bit more room. No way I'm joining the lycra crowd and riding a road bike, I would rather die!

It's fun hopping curbs while others are waiting at the traffic lights too.

I'm still figuring out what my favorite use is. I was itching to get another BMX bike, but 20" bikes just felt to dinky to do anything but very specific freestyle and park riding. Just "cruising" around was another hat I needed my new bike to ride to wear, so naturally I started looking at the 24" models out there.

I'd say right now it's 70/30... Cruising/Flatland. I hope to hit a local skatepark at some point this summer after I get my legs back. 20-25 years is a long time to go without riding.

I got my 24 inch for riding around the street and then my friends showed me a bike park and now I'm in love.

Those are some seriously bad ass dirt jumps. I WISH I had something like that by me.

Is it just me, or does it look like he's riding in the forests of Endor?

There are probably trails near you, where ever you live... But you won't find them on the internet.

My Sunday Model C sees a lot of Street and Sk8 Park; I even throw some trials type stuff in the mix.
