Ams get crazy amounts of money part wise. 3 sunday frames is like 1000$

To the rider it's a good deal but really if i had to guess i would say it costs them $50 to make a frame, maybe not even that much. I would actually like to know a rough estimate of how much the parts we ride actually cost to make.

Not a their cost,not even close.

Mostly peaceful posting on vital.

Yeah, Sunday frames are usually at least $400, but something a pro would actually use would be closer to $500-600.

Pro's use Frames you can buy. And they cost less to build than what you pay for, so it's probably only 200ish they lose giving flow riders Frames. I think some lower end companies used to give their riders specially made Frames that weren't available, but not anymore, and especially not higher end companies. I'm sure you probably know Rally teams and other races that use cars that look like ordinary road cars use specially made cars too. But it just doesn't happen in BMX.

Well, they lose money for each discounted frame....

They don't give AMs much all in all, in fact combined probably less or not much more than they paid Eric L.
And as much as I like Eric L, I'd much rather they lose him than:
Erik Elstran
Seth Peterson
TJ Henderson
Chris Childs
Mark Burden
Aaron Day
Bobby Delaat
Scot Draper
Justin Simpson
Tom Perry
JF Boulianne
Dirt Ron
George Boyd
Matt Houck
Grant Germain
Kyle Hart
Ed Zunda
Jared Swafford
KC Badger
And the International teams too.

In fact of the 19 Riders I mentioned, 7 I get very excited when there is new footage of them, as they're some of my favourite riders.

Stricker is the man. Primo and s&m should have kept him till he died. Dudes a boss


Saying that he was hanging with the bonedeth crew a few months back

This, he went missing a few years ago and he's getting a bit older now, I made a thread asking this not long ago, the overall decision was that he's just slowed down a bit. Stricker fucking ruled.

Eric L was pushing pegless street to the limits, they are dumb, guess they think they need only need one pegless rider, Garret

I'd say that there is no way Mark Burnett is getting payed yet. Dudes that fresh have to earn their keep and prove that they can be consistent with coverage. I'd be willing to bet that Chris Childs isn't on payroll yet either.

Ya dude I just watched that. The riding was dope, but I have one question. Do all the OSS videos have the songs they do as jokes? Or is that the music you guys actually listen to?

i don't get it. odyssey and sunday are individual companies, so why is eric l being fired from both?

|

7/5/2013 3:44 PM

Because they are owned by the same people. Odyssey, Sunday & G-Sport are all owned by Bear Corp. There's a guy in charge of each company but then there's a guy in charge of them.

Cough jim clinky is a douche to riders with diffferent lifechoices like hoder and eric both lived sort of a mild druggish life. I guess they only want a team of leaders like arron ross aka sellout mgee cough

Garrett does it "Legally" though. Prescription shit or something along those lines. Jim C from all i have seen & heard over the past few years is a complete & total Douche.
