In the sense of how standard headsets, those old stems that had no fork clamps, one piece cranks, and unsealed bearings left. What do you guys see moving out of or into BMX in the next generation of shit? I myself was trying to think of things.

I can see investment casting being a big thing. Not really sure what else though. Maybe a new method of seats. Like maybe using just flat seats. Then screwing them in and it having a wedge you can just tilt to your preferred angle and tighten.

Idk, I'm really strikin blank here. It's really hard to imagine when it's in a sense predicting the future. But that being said I'm also not that knowledgeable with what's going on with bikes anymore.

What I can see for sure is a bunch of LHD/RHD reversible hubs, maybe fatter tires, seeing we went from 1.90 to a standard of 2.25.
Maybe a comeback of metal pedals?
New types of headsets, maybe BMX will be switching to internals.
As for seats, after Internbike it seemed like tripod seats were the biggest thing ever but it seems like the trend just died out.
Another thing maybe more 24 mm cranks and maybe wheels with less spokes, who know 28H may become the new standard if new materials will be introduced.

This, all of these are all highly possible. Honestly these are the things I see have the most chance, and can't think of anything else. I do see for sure LHD/RHD becoming the standard. It would save just sooooo much hassle for riders, and companies. And the investment casting for sure.

I always wished that but I don't think they'll ever really go down in price. They've been around in skating for a while and nothings changed. Hopefully though!

Maybe, I'm seeing many more 4 peg/ 3 peg riders now days.
As for freecoasters, it maybe.
The thing is that it's not only a different system but it's also a different feel and type of riding.
Maybe they are going to redesign cassette hubs, or they will improve freecoaster/cassette hubs to be more common within riders.
Another thing that I noticed is people now days are getting always bigger sprockets, seems like it's becoming a thing.

yeah when i started riding it was 25 t everywhere but now i see 28t as the standard

I've noticed a lot of the following:
-Brakes are more common
-28t Sprockets
-Ridiculously large bars.
-Really large tires.
-4pc bars seem to be getting more popular.
-Trans colors.
-Topload stems.
-Seats seem to be getting raised a bit.
-Colored wall tires.

I personally still have everything the way it was a few years ago, brakeless, slammed seat, decent sized bars, FL stem etc.

I see really nice completes for a very affordable price. Also I see investment casting moving to US turf and maybe even everyone starting to use platinum OX tubing to keep cost down from heat treatment. Also I see frame no longer having Tt gussets since a lot of frames don't have then any more. More frames will have wifi geo to them and will eventually have like 9.5-10 in stand over as a standard. I feel the big bar thing is leveling or fading.

I seek progression, not perfection.

More bushing pedals like the Animal BPE.
Definitely invest cast.
Tripods. Tripods everywhere. Andy, the 'trend' hasn't even begun yet.
Coated pegs like the Eclat Nathan Williams pegs.

Freecoasters are for sure making a comeback. Everyone is fucking making one. Even Demo and Cult released a picture of proto coasters.

Oh, forgot to wright that. I wouldn't be surprised if G-Sport does start a coaster in a few years. It really depends if the freecoaster makes a huge comeback, and honestly, I think it will.
