So i am not a noob to bmx, but being only 14 there is a LOT of history to the sport that i just don't know. Today i watched this movie

"The story of FBM" it was a great watch! I really enjoyed it! I also felt the same way when i watched the birth of big air video with matt hoffman. What are some other things like this you og riders think the younger riders should watch or just need to know about bmx history?

You should watch...

Every road fools episode & Everything animal has ever put out.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

try to find and watch "joe kid on a stingray" its a pretty good documentary on the history of bmx. it is good from the standpoint that it covers all the way back to the beginning of bmx but can be a little vague on details, still a entertaining watch though.

The best thing to know that A LOT of the younger generation seem to have totally forgotten the existence of...

R E S P E C T

Treat older more experienced Riders with respect & You'll usually get it back & older Riders will be more inclined to share their knowledge! You don't have to be a kiss ass & if any Rider expects You to worship the ground they walk on, then they're disrespecting You & You don't have to put up with that!

BMX used to be a really tight community & most older Riders actually remember that & do what We can to keep good kids Riding!

I honestly didn't even finish it. I watched like 15 minutes in before i got bored of handrail after handrail. I decided to go ride my bike instead.

For real? I ordered it , never watched it.

The whole criminal mischief video kicks ass

5/27/2014 5:42 PM

All the Van Homan videos and props, I used to have all the props on tap but the VCR broke and i got rid of them sad
Also not old ones but "Sun in the budget" And Sun "The trip" (I think thats what the last one is called) are really good to watch

Watch anthem 2, then repeat to yourself: "never ever ever listen to a word that adam22 says. ever."

That will unlock all you need to know about bmx.

Not glorious, just old.

I'm re-watching it now. I filmed the bike riding clips of Toast as well as the kid that does the abubuca to face plant on the shopping cart.

Nike 6.0 Writing on the Wall is my personal fav, its beginning to become kinda old, not really. Great team, amazing clips. Well worth the watch.

I didn't really like Deadline TBH. I feel like its something wortnh watching due to how much they put into it but id still rather watch Writing on the Wall for the 200th time than rewatch Deadline. The Deadline crew put out some amazing clips, BUT how many times do I need to see handrail clips before they do something that doesn't involve pegs! If they would have replaced 2/3 of the rail clips with more technical lines, bank/hip tricks, and maybe some sweet gap tricks (NON STAIRS!), the edit would have been so much better. Rail after rail after rail after rail after ledge after rail really drowns out the greatness of the whole video.

Anyway, I really like Fly/T1 videos. I never really sit down to watch full length videos, so Road Fools and all those long videos are a rare thing for me to watch. Watched the FBM video and loved it though. I like the documentaries more than the riding videos honestly.

Not that old, but IMO T1 videos (such as their Australia trip or Colorado trip) and Anthem II are a must-watch for every rider.

Watch "Seek and Destroy" by Little Devil Brand (one of the best bmx video soundtracks).

I never really watched much history type shit, or edits for that matter. I was considering checking out some of that stuff.
