I went to Philadelphia for the Park Tool summit for shop employees. The major manufacturers primarily in the road/mountain bike segment (FSA, Shimano, SRAM, Fox Racing, Hayes, Avid, etc..) of our sport were there. I spent two days in classes put on by the manufacturers. It was very well done and I learned A LOT. BMX is a great sport, but you only see a tiny part of the bicycle industry, and it's amazing to see all of it.

And, Elvis is still the king.

Oh, and the best part was the FOOD. Oh my god, Philadelphia bars, diners, and restaurants...

Worst part was the crazy narrow streets.

do you know how to bleed hydraulic disk brakes?

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

Nonono I work at a shop that does barely any bmx. This was for mountain/road bikes primarily. I'm into mountain bikes as much as I am into bmx bikes. When I said "our sport" I meant biking in general. Sorry for the confusion.
