Well, assuming you are older, one would assume you have a carreer. So, what do you do for a living that allows you to spend money on your bmx bike?

I'll go first, I am a Facility Manager at one of the building on the National Institutes of Research facility in Bethesda, MD. Basically, I run an animal research building for the government. Lately, I have basically just been a web surfer since so many people are on leave for the holidays! Oh, and I seem to be spending way too much money at Dan's!

Pharmacist. On the side, more of a hobby that pays for itself, Breed and sell chickens, and their eggs. Types of chickens I raise are Seramas, Delawares, Buckeyes, Barred Rocks, Americanas, Leghorns, and Black Australorps.

Full-time student. I know, I get it: full-time students are supposed to be in their young twenties. Late bloomer, I guess.

Hmm, I guess that's not really an occupation, but that's what I do...

I am a Kinesiotherapist. I wish I was a Pharmacist like over 30 and still riding, but I don't know if I could go back to school again. I might go back to get my MBA.

im 36 and an airline pilot. i fly an airbus a320. because my job is directly related to my health i dont go hard anymore ( although i really do feel the need). i ride street and a backyard vert/mini with a 4 ft box. mostly i do manuals feebles and 180s with long free-hub rollbacks in the street. i've been re-learning 360s but not more than 3 or 4 steps. no big gaps anymore although i can see them from a mile. i have to keep it so delicate and selective, its werd!

all my joints hurt and im just getting over some nasty tennis elbow that got in the way of things 4 weeks. but i cant resist riding my modern new brakeless bike!

o/n stocker @ walmarts,pay sucks.i'm not old but,i can't begin to relate to kid's these days they seem to spend more time on computers talking shit to each other than riding their damn bike.i got comment on my bike profile about my seat being 5 inches high w/ a haro seat and 48 hole triple saying it was gay.what the fuck happen to the days when u were respected for your riding not you setup.lets see these kids slam their seat after 2 knee surgies and a tore ligament.10 years and half of them will have given it up. i love the look of modern bmx (plastic parts aside) but my knees can't grab that and i like givin my legs a break every now and then.i have been brakeless for 11 years now i understand and love that the world caught up with that.
