I started a new topic, in hope of you being more likely to read this. Granted, your decision in quitting BMX is your decision, you should think about this:

No matter what happens in life, don't give up the things you love.

I know this is easier said then done, but it can happen. I was done with BMX. I was moving out of my parents house, I was working 40+ hours a week, and I was getting married. I decided I didn't need riding, that I had more important things I should spend my time doing. I couldn't have been more wrong. BMX is "me" time. It's the time I get away from the stressors of everyday life. It's my time to relax. It's not childish, immature, or dumb to ride your ride your bike. It's a choice. I only ride a few hours a week, but that little time I do spend on my bike is time well spent. Now, I have a baby on the way, I work a full time job, I'm happily married (she fully supports my riding), and I have no intentions of stopping my riding anytime soon. It can be done brotha, and I hope you think of that! But, with that being said, I believe even if you quit, you'll always have a soft spot for this sport.

Best of luck!
_Geoff

I see what you are saying man. I just have simply lost my passion, and after July, my home life is over, and it's college time. Which means, no riding time, because bikes can not be kept in a room, and I refuse to leave it locked up outside. I am thinking about just working on what is a little more important now, and if down the line, a spark lights the gas that I have deep inside to ride bikes, I can always get a higher end complete!

hell yeah man!
my dad rode bikes all through his childhood, and instead of growing out of it, he got into mountain biking and still rides 2 nights a week, in some pretty sick single track trails around our area.

Yes dude don't give up riding. We met an off duty police officer today while we were working on a dirt jump today. Turns out he used to ride with Mike Aitken when they were kids. He had this old school bike and after a few goes at the jump he started pulling tables and x-ups. Then out of no where he does this huge dumped three but he ended up crashing when he landed. Long story short, you can be that guy who rides and kids look up to.

This is what I'm talking about. I'm a security officer, and a lot of people think I'm another rent-a-cop with an arrogant attitude, but I work for the money, and so I can do the things I love. Just because we have responsibility, doesn't mean we can't have fun!

I do a little bit of mountain biking, and some road biking too, but BMX is what I really love to do.

Old school bike? Aitken hasn't been riding longer than maybe 15 or so years. If that guy rode with him there is little chance it is a true old school bike.

Doesn't mean you don't like it, means you need a break for a while. Sounds to me like he is burnt out, and has a lot on his plate. Now with the college thing, if you are able, try not to live on campus. Then you can keep your bike wherever. Some dorms will allow it inside as well, just gotta talk to some people. You will want it at the least for transportation and some messing around time, which you will have, whether you believe it or not. A buddy of mine is taking something like 21 credits to graduate, works about 25 hours a week, and is thinking of picking up a minor in some form of psychology on top of his education major, and still finds time to ride his road bike upwards of 150 miles a week in the summer.

dont sell it, just keep, one day your going to regret it. Especially in college life, you can use your bike to cruise around campus, that will be time to ride. You'll get back into it, just take a break, and watch some bmx videos.

just wanted to post this

eh, you're right it wasn't even an old school bike. It was just kind of old probably like 2002-04. But he could shred. He grew up in the salt lake area and new matt behringer too.

After my daughter was born I thought I'd never ride again, and while you won't see me jumping down a 12 set anytime soon, I still get out even if it's just for a cruise. Being older and having a family makes me value BMX way more than I ever did when I was young. When weather permits I ride my bike to work (5 miles) and when I get some time off I find a nice quiet parking lot and practice some flatland. BMX isn't the bread of life, but it can be can be the salt of life, just a pinch makes everything taste that much better.
