One of the dumbest messages I've read on these forums, which is saying something.

I’m over here, trying to blend in and not be noticed by Krooked: in my 1990’s vert knee pads, elbow guards, gloves, helmet, bar pad, stem pad, safety glasses, and steel toed shoes .....

Time, as we know it, is just a way of measuring the rate of events, typically just based around some arbitrary recurring astronomical event. So...

I wear gloves mountain biking not on the BMX (unless it is cold out).

All I drink is beer, tequila, rum, whiskey, water, milk, juice, Red Bull and hot tea. Actually pretty much everything except wine and coffee...

You must ride turtle speed at foot tall ledges I’m assuming and never go fast enough to need protection for the palms when crashing

Lol! Yeah I was gonna say ? Crash at the bottom of a 12set onto slavs of coral n get back to me. After ripping so many gloves apart, i try my best not to have any crazy sessions without em. If im riding ledges on concrete or a lil skate plaza or something i might take them off, as gloveless IS more comfortable. But like i said in my first post “Tetanus aint cute”

It is dumb. I'm old though, so whatever.

Edit: Wear gloves or not. I don't care but using "rawness" as an excuse is just silly. Especially if it's an excuse to talk shit about someone that does wear gloves. "That guy wears gloves, he's not street." - Dumb. There are comments like that from SAT wizards in this very thread.

The problem with people equating "street" with certain unacceptable equipment (gyro, brakes in general, gloves, pads, helmets, etc.)...Guess what a bike is...equipment. You cant do any "Street" riding without a bike. So if you want to get REAL street, you're gonna have to do parkour without any clothes or shoes.

If you ride obstacles in the city/town/suburb whatever, you are riding street. It doesn't matter how your bike is setup, what you're wearing, what type of kegal exercises your aunt does. You are riding street, simple as that.

I'm taking this to heart...I am quitting bmx because you don't think gloves look cool.

I have a confession to make...I wear gloves.

I know you thought I was way cooler than Avril Lavine but I'm not, I'm a pussy. Sorry to get your hopes up and then shut them down in such dramatic fashion.

Guess I'll go start sewing celebrity clothing by hand and develop carpal tunnel.

Considering you wear a full face helmet, knowing that you wear gloves is not surprising
