Awoo. I also saw a clip where some random dirt-jump kid threw a triple tailwhip. That seems like a very big trick.
one fine yard J, fer sure, good fun
@mikey, the whole time, dominic was watching, going “judi, these guys aren’t that good….” but all i was pointing to were the ramps and the hay stacks, looks so damn fun.
Build it, and they will come.
And bu they, I mean grins, giggles, and higher insurance premiums.
The fact that the guy’s aren’t pro (or I’d be surprised if they were) makes it cool. A couple of regular dudes, with a regular house, in a regular suburb just keeping it real. I like the hay bale bailout too. Smart. And it’ll scrub off speed so they don’t get into that back corner with too much heat.
@bj, i was thinking about caveman’s pump track around his house…
Mooooom! Can I go play at Mikey’s house? He has RAMPS! Pleeeeease?
They may or may not be “all that good” but they are definitely having more fun on their bikes right now than I am having at my desk.
That video is full of big wheel bmx bikes! It is so hard for me to ride a 20″ after having ridden a 26″ for a year or so. I really want a 24″ like that raw frame one the manual ‘master’ is riding.
We’ve been blessed on the Front Range in CO. The last two summers have seen 4 or 5 city managed bike parks open up: Golden, Lyons, Rhyolite, Gunbarrel. With at least two more in the works: Valmont and North Barnum Park.
I will refrain from mentioning the non-sanctioned spots. I love that municipalities are open to dirt jumps.
I wish I had started riding about thirty years sooner.
I wish I weren’t so old and brittle.
I wish I had better carpentry skills.
Hell, might as well wish I could fart hundred dollar bills that smell like lilacs while I’m at it. (Pffffft) Nope, nothing yet.
Rogbie, what’s the difference between a 26″ BMX and, say, my Monocog?
we are headed to rays on monday (CLE), our raleigh rep is meeting us up there with bikes. im so stoked.
