I'll try it.
it's the firs time that i see that trick.
I thought that it hard!
Title: Introduce yourself
Post by: BMXER on January 10, 2005, 07:22:47 PM
I made it!!!!
It's not so hard.
I can do it but not a lot, it's hard to keep the balanc on the peg.
I'll keep practice, and when I succeed a lot maybe I put some photo of me.

hey whats up people its Jason Sparks from Miami Beach Fl.
I've been riding flat about 9 months and now I am totaly hooked.
I usualy ride 2or3 hours 5 days a week.
I currently ride a Felt MR frame. W/KHE flat alloy fork and K-pro alloy bar stem combo which is a realy light front end.(not shown in picture)
Rims are, rear; odyssey duralectra laced to a odyssey reloader freecoaster 36h. front; alex. felt stock W/felt hub.
4 steel pegs too heavy!,stock chainring 36t too big!,Stock seat and post.
Also use odyssey twisted pc pedals and lamello tires which I think are realy good.
Going to be making some changes soon its just a matter of time and funds.

This is a picture of me riding at lincoln road mall in M.B.

Hi jason ... welcome to the forum ...

your picture doesn't work because people need to login to see it. I guess you are using the webspace of your college or something like that ?

Feel free to save your setup with our bike configurator. There you can add a picture of your bike, too ..

i ride street and skateparks on my 26inch mountain bike and have always liked flatland.
Then one day i was riding around and i saw james (from the global-flat team) and his mates riding flatland. so i got talking to them, then decided to bite the bullet and i've got together all the money i can and at the end of the month i'm getting a KHE goldfinger!
or something else.....  ;)

Whats up. My name is Mike and I am 17 years old. I have been riding flatland for about two years now. I ride a white Ares Dita. When I am not riding I am usually thinking about riding, hanging with my friends, or looking for chicks. I went to Ham Jam last year, and I plan on going to all three this year before I move to Florida (hopefully!).

P.S. Smay, only real men ride pink Ashura's. Your bike has came a long way since I saw it at the last Ham Jam.

Hey all,

My name is Cameron and I am just getting back into riding after being out of it for about 5 years.

I just picked a Quamen G4, ( I believe) and will have everything rolling this coming friday.

Here is a link to a pic: http://www.bikeguide.org/forums/showthread.php?t=36325 (http://www.bikeguide.org/forums/showthread.php?t=36325)


Anyways, I am a 27 yr old structural engineer from Brampton, Ontario. I just got married this year and have no children just yet.

Oh by the way if anyone can help me in determining if my frame is a Quamen G4 or G5 I would be greatful, as the guy I bought it from did not seem to know.

Thanks!
 
Title: Introduce yourself
Post by: node on July 13, 2005, 11:25:26 PM
I saw in a thread on pedal by gri0t who works at quamen and he mentioned that the g4/g5 were when they started bringing in the euro size b/b...
there isn't much difference in the quamen generations until g6, only weight.
Title: Introduce yourself
Post by: griOt on July 14, 2005, 03:07:40 AM
hi there, i work at Quamen

anyhow, that frame is pretty much a G4 becuz of the smaller diameter toptube compared to the downtube.... If it has a euro bottom bracket then its the start of a G5..

but im sure its a G4 with an American bottom bracket...

good day :)

Hi Kevin,

welcome to global-flat ... you are the guy from vietnam living in the usa or is this another guy ?

we already have a little show off gallery ;)
you can save your bike setup with our bike configurator and add a photo of it. So if you are looking for some setups and photos check out the list of all saved setups:
http://www.global-flat.com/partconf/showsetups.php (http://www.global-flat.com/partconf/showsetups.php)

But of course you can start a topic in the forum like "show your bike" .. I'll show my one  :lol:
As registered user you are allowed to upload photos here in the forum. So you can use that to show your bike .. I would like to see how an ep with mike s bar looks ;)

Hey what's up flatland community?

My name's Jason Plourde from Quebec city and i ride since May 2001 and i always had a fun time sessionning since i began riding. I ride a St Martin Darwin, all dressed in black and it's the best frame i rode in a good while. I'm 20 years old and i always push it hard when i get a chance to be on my bike. I also work in a sport shop as a technician so i have the chance to tune up bikes as well as snowboards. I hope i'll bring in some good vibe and share what i got here in my space so we can all be motivated to learn and see what each other has to bring to flatland. Thanks for Global-flat to let us see what our eyes can't see during contests and jams, 'coz i don't have the time and patience to do so. Peace!!

Yo, I'm just getting back into flatland.  I hail from the blue lands of Kentucky (USA) and rode for about 2 years back in high school.  I didn't get very much accomplished flat wise, but I was riding a nice mix of flat, street and dirt. 

It's good to be back in flat ground.

Flat is fun, and even old tricks can be cool if you think about it.

i consider myself as an old school, but due to my work i been riding on and off. if i get the chance of practicing new moves i really work it out. and so, flatland riding for me now is a work out since i don't go gym. and its in the blood so i keep riding.

Post by: OldSkoolRida on May 14, 2006, 02:40:46 AM
whats goin' on? i'm an old school rider still checking out things in the "new school" flatland scene. I LOVE IT!!! things have changed since i use to ride, but that's what i hoped. my heros in flatland used to be Dennis Mccoy,Kevin Jones,Mark Eaton, and many others. I see know it's Martti,Vicki,Mike S., just to name a few. I got out of flatland back in 1990 because I thought it was going nowwhere. MAN I WAS WRONG!!! I got back into it a little in 2003. I learned a little of the tricks I used to do but I'm older now and out of breath faster. Ha Ha. it's all good though. No matter what it's all about having fun with the sport no matter how old you are. this site is nice and I look forward to talking to some of you guys and learning more where I left off with. You guys take care. and RIDE!!!

i started riding then stoped due to my first bike getting stolen then i bought some awful GT a couple years later and then  torn my acl ... then a few months later was in a car accident... SO FINALLY  i can walk and ride around again... unfortunatly I'm awful now... and the only person that i can ride with is my friend who does Trials... so if there is anyone in the area up until NY that wouldn't mind helping me get back on my feet that would be awesome.. i'm a very fast learner and i'm just looking for someone who won't mind some teaching.

yo im ian. ive been flatlanding for about 2 months. ive always liked it but ive never had the balance to do it. and in the past two months ive had an old bike made and i started doing endos and trying tailwhips on it and so i got into it and got a good dyno frame from a friend and things took off from there. i can do handlebar rides now, and i havent landed a tailwhip yet but im getting better at it. so i guess im in the begginer section still.

Put off riding for a few years... just recently got back into... for some reason I got the urge to ride again so here I am. I'm glad I never sold my bike :mellow:

Hello everyone, also from Pedal here.  I checked out BMX-forum, then was suggested to come here, and this place looks even nicer.
I'm 19, have been riding for around seven years, but have only been into flatland recently.  I have a whole new set-up going together today, so I'll be posting some specs/pics of it next week when I buy my new DSLR camera.

I'm an old-schooler from Baltimore. I'm getting back in, and am building up a Quamen g4.

I'm excited to start riding again...and am going 'all out' to learn the new school....rolling stuff. As a matter of fact, the quamen doesn't even have mounts, so I'll be riding rear brakeless for the first time ever...exciting but scary a bit also.

My first goal is to learn hang fives....and then see where that leads me.

later beetches

jason

PS, I may be going new school on my current goals...but you better bet I'll still be running grip tape on the 'ole chainstays....

I'm getting back into BMX after being gone for quite a while (about 15 years lol).  Was pretty serious and competed back in the 80s in flatland as an expert...then migrated to mountain bikes and then to road bikes.  I recently decided to get a new bike and try some freestyle again.

I hardly ride anymore, I remember I was so psyched and would ride & check pedalbmx so much. I stopped and nearly sold my bike, hah. Good thing no one wanted it, lol cause now I've got the itch to ride again. Ain't gonna lie, I suck so much even I'm stunned, but man am I having a ball at times.

Heya Moncho! I've been on here for the past year. I just haven't posted much. This forum is getting more dialed than ever.

I'm having issues with logging and staying logged on PedalBmx and for the the most part the site shuts down when I click on the sub forums. I'm running mac/safari and do know some other users are sharing the same issues. I hope Nick returns the site to it's previous glory!

No riding going on due to another snowstorm. Is my Gamma being treated properly?

My name is Todd Wroblewski from chicago , il.
 I started riding in 82-83, I rode with Bill Freeman, Bob Kohl, Brain Dahl Billy Garwich and Lance Kleffman. Slowed my riding around 88 when I went to art school, then moved to colorado to snowboard till 2000. When I found flatlandfuel.com and became intrested in the community again. I am the guy that designed the new sickchild tee, whatever. I ride when I can, and read the silly post here. I mean really, I did all the old school stuff, even innovated some things back then, but to say I look back and wish those tricks where stiil cool is to say I wish Vanilla Ice will make it big again, the past is back there, getting smaller in the rear view mirror. If you cannot except change, then curl up in a ball and die. I ride no brakes and enjoy the challenge it has brought upon me. I love this fourm, but if I read another "old school vs. new school" subject I will kill myself, I mean lawnmowers where not that hard, Dizz hicks was really not that great, and if anyone remembers, pee wee herman cherry pickers really where kinda kick ass. Thanks for the memories down history lane, can we move into the future now...................oh, Moncho, Those forks Kick so much ass.............Todd

Hey, guys! I'm a flatlander from NY, and I'm probably one of the only flatlanders in my city, so It gets kinda lonely. I still ride with my best friend mike, so it's alright. ;D Besides riding flatland, I pretty much sit on my fat ass and watch TV. I'm outside riding flat for 2-10 hours a day, though. So, I obviously don't sit around as often as you'd think. lol

ANY four year degree? Is there a riding scene over there? Man I am so psyched for you. My brother is living in Seoul right now and loving it (he's in the air force).

Yeah, any bachelors degree will do.  Theres a good flat scene up in Seoul, I'm about 50 minutes south of Seoul, and theres a good street scene here, so I hang out with the street riders here on the weekends, and I met up with some of the flatlanders from Seoul a few weeks ago, they're all dope riders.

Bike: DK signal, of course.

i'm very very new to flatland.  in fact, just last month, i didn't even know it existed.  i was inadvertantly introduced to the sport through a couple of online acquaintances; while looking for a new, well-built "street bike" (as i called it) to replace my ancient haro which was falling apart left and right, i saw just one flatland clip and was hooked on it all night.  i ended up putting in an order for a DK signal (since it was so highly recommended for a new rider on a budget) and i love it, except for a couple personal quips (massive pegs combined with short rear and big feet hurts sometimes, and of course the crank.)

so that's it; i've been riding for around two weeks.  i've more or less got fork glides down, but that's all i've been working on -- still have trouble keeping balance half the time, and the back wheel keeps coming up because i can't force myself to lean forward over the handlebars just yet.  if anyone has any advice on starting out, feel free to PM me; i'm not making a new thread asking for tips :P

Hey guys, dug my bike out of the garage for the first time in about 4 years and went for a bit of a ride today - something I'm planning to do more often this year.

Anyway, I always used to ride a bit of everything (although was never any good) but this time I fancy concentrating more on riding flat - the way it looks and flows just appeals to me.

Just hoping you guys can give me some pointers with getting started, and getting me up to date with whats been going on - I'm guessing I've missed quite a lot!

My bike is a 2001 WTP Airwin bought as a complete bike when I first started out. Since then it's had new pedals, cranks and chainring and is pretty much held together with scourer pads and insulation tape but it's still my bike.  :mellow:

Got some old flat pegs somewhere that I'm going to put on in the next week or so to get started - in a fetching shade of metallic pink too!

So....there you go!

I started riding in about 1984.  Started out in BMX, then shifted to Freestyle.  Back in the day, I had a Haro FST, then a mid-80's Master.  After I went to college, I needed some cash and sold my bike.  From then until now, I've watched others do flatland whenever I could and have always tried to keep up with the sport by occasionally getting some magazines to see what was happening.

I've got a 7 year old boy now, and I've been teaching him a few tricks.  I'm looking to get back into riding myself now as the "bug" has bitten me and I think that some non-aggressive flat could be a great form of exercise for an "old" guy like me.  ^_^

btw: NICE Master Timo!

There's too much stuff to write about all at once, but in brief I started in 1988, rode vert and flat then gradually moved to flatland only. I am stuck in the early 90's in my flatland tricks but it's all good. I also collect 80's BMX/freestyle bikes and memorabilia these days, i like nostalgia. You can view my 80's freestyle bikes collection with all the details and stories at the museum ([url]http://www.bmxmuseum.com/bikes/user/400[/url]).
I'm still continuing my old hobby, skateboarding (since 1986) in my old school style.

Thanks for reading.

hey, i guess a little introduction is in order,

Name: Chris
Nickname: "Manual king"
From: Brighton UK
Years riding: 10 (1 flatland)
Bike: Khe Equilibrium '06

I used to be a trials rider, then snapped my bike for the last time and decided to have a go at the other two wheeled sport ive always wanted to try FLATLAND

Hah...me too.

Name: Nate
From: Florida
Years riding: 4 straight...on and off for about 8 (2 weeks flatland)
Bike: Suelo Simple V2

  I hit a flatspot in trials where I couldn't get much over bar height, taps were getting frustrating, and I couldn't gap to front farther than I could gap straight to rear,a nd all the spots around here got old...so I decided to give it a break and give flatland a REAL shot.  I've always messed around, but with a trials bike around, when I got frustrated, I would hop back on teh trials rig.  I sold her, so now I have nothing else...

I'm Nate.

I live in FLorida, and you'de think with the lack of hills and how flat it is, I woulda learned flatland alot sooner.

  I've ridden predominatly MTB's my entire life, rode trials for a short bit.  mostly trials.

Right click save as or just stream it if you're lazy(3meg),
http://www.getlocalized.com/bike%20stuff/MOV01771.MPG

  I've ridden small street for awhile, mostly tech stuff, and progressing into flatland seemed like the natural idea.  That, and I've been at a Flatspot in trials for 3 years...I've learned most everything, but I haven't been able to get any more height/distance...

  Also, I hate doing anything where you have to haul ass or go big, and with BMX, that's kinda a criteria. That and there's SO MANY things and ways to go wrong....unpredictable. Trials I wasn't scared to go big (12 foot drops anyone?), cause I wasn't hauling ass, lol.

Anyhow, I run a clothing company, predominatly board sports, but we do have some bikers on the team.  Link to the clothing company is above, just delete everything after the .com.

Robert, 22, Texas.  I rode through highschool then pretty much stopped for four years.  Now I'm getting back into it.  I put together a simple about a week ago, but I'm having issues finding a place to ride. 

I live in the country and major roads are pretty much the only pavement.  I'd drive somewhere, but.. I drive a miata.  A bike won't fit without removing wheels/handlebars and lowering the seat all the way.. and I don't trust bike-racks.

So.. currently I ride on my parents' back patio.(yay being a bum!)  Luckily, I'm graduating from college in December and moving to elsewhere.  Somewhere paved.

Anywho, hi.

years riding : since 86, did AFA in 87, KOF in Manchester, NH, etc, etc,

random factoids - i did unitybikes.com website, i used to be called mr."CP" as i have a disability called cerebral palsy, but i actually used to be a semi descent rider, my body decided to get worse over the years, but i can still do some rolling tricks.

fave riders - brian chapman, jones and the plywood hoods.

would love some scans of june 87 FREESTYLIN, page 72 i think...

working on a rolling sports video - wheelchair rugby, flatland, skating, etc, all in the same video.

Hey,
Sup? I'm Jake From The USA, iowa. (America F*** Yea)
I have been "doing" Flat land for about 2 years and i have been bmxing for a super long time. I am only 17 years old, but i get alot out of the sport. I find it to be relaxing, extremely fun, and very addicting. My fav quote is "When i'm dead, bury my bike at my feet so i can ride for ever." If you are wondering yes i am a ginger and i do have a bush of fire lol. But seriously i am looking for some local Iowa riders that want to get together and just ride and teach each other new tricks a tips and such. This is the most i have ever been committed to anything. I have had my KHE Stylus for a couple weeks now and love riding it. Any one that lives near des moines just let me know and we can rock out!!!!!

Hey everyone - My name's Greg, I'm new here and recently back into riding. Rode heavily around '88-'92 or so, then a brief stint again around 2000/01. After checking out some stuff on Youtube, checking out Joe Kid on a Stingray and playing Mirra on my PS2, I knew I had to get back into it. I'm 30 now so can only manage to sneak mini-sessions here and there, but have managed to get some stuff back pretty quick, double firehydrants, firehalls, squeakersons, lots of scuffing tricks (uh, not exactly all the rage these days, I know!), all the old school stuff. Trick in the works right now = crackpacker. I'm in Victoria, BC.

I bought a Haro F2, I think it's an '06. Pretty damn heavy compared to the bikes I used to ride (GT Performer, Dyno Compe, some Redline, and the Dyno Slammer, which was pretty damn heavy, admittedly). I like the F2, I know it's not totally flat-specific, but it's suiting me fine. I ride a bit of street but flat is my main thing.

Any other 'old' guys out there?  ;D I'm so pumped to have riding back in my life, it's made me pretty happy. I can't believe I've been neglecting it!

Cheers,
Greg

Hey,

Uh.. I'm Katie, I'm a youngin' from Melbourne, Australia, haven't got a bike at the moment after completely screwing up my old one and losing confidence riding a four-wheeler and nearly rolling it... Bit of an idiot without a bike at the moment, hoping to get a new one as soon as I get the spare cash... Unfortunatly apparently food is more important.... :D (Probably one of the few chicks around even thinking about doing flatland... Hmm...)

Interests: Obviously im interested in flatland biking, but I also like cars (mostly imports), I also play a little guitar and just like to chill with some buddies. A few years ago I became fascinated with body modification so I have big holes (1"+) in my ears, thus I am now some sort of alien figure to most people.

Hi everyone, so to introduce myself, I'm Eva and I'm writing from Ontario, Canada.  I'm 25 years old and this is the first time I will be owning a "real" flatland bike since I just ordered one.  Dk Signal and new to flatland.  I'm an XC /Downhill rider getting into flatland for more of a challenge.  I look forward to learning and having fun on my new bike. 

I ordered the ground rules dvd so that should help me out some I hope!
There isn't a big flatland scene where I am so I'll have to learn a lot on my own ... but if anyone is from the Muskoka/parry sound area from ont. caanda and does ride flatland lets chill.  : )  myspace: www.myspace.com/konadawgmatic

Riding Since: 91' not flatland though
Bike: Many

I recently got into flatland because of some vision problems due to diabetes.  I have been riding bmx for many many years and always messed around with flatland, but because of my vision problems flatland has become one of the only forms of bike riding that I can do any more.  I have very low vision and can't see more than 2 feet in fornt of my face, though my eye doctor and I are working on getting my vision back it's not looking so good.  So I got into flatland mainly because I have no worries of running into anything such as poles, curbs, people, ect. seeing how I try and ride in big open areas such as empty parking lots.

There is some info about my self.

Thanks for reading.

Hi, my names scott, just signed up here. Been riding flatland for a fair while now though I had a break for a few months as I injured myself. Just getting back into the flow. Sadly when I was injured I also ran low on cash and had to sell my beloved bike so when I started again I bought a KHE Stylus complete (now for sale!). This was all good and I couldnt really fault it but compared to my old ride it wasnt up to par, but last week I managed to score myself a new setup (see the bikes thread!) and I'm loving it!

I'm an artist by day and a turntablist by night lol...love riding, decent weather, good friends etc....not much else is there?

Looking forward to chipping in on here from time to time!

Peace!

I've been riding all types of bike since i was 5...  I started w/BMX and my Dad would never take us to the track so that turned into street BMX which then turned into cross-country MX, Sportbikes for college, MTB (trails, trials), back to street, pocketbikes, and then onto Flatland... 

When people ask about my riding now i tell them "i'm re-learning how to ride a bike.."  I ride anything on two wheels...

We are The Action Sports Coalition, a group of riders who BMX, Skateboard, FreeRide and try our best to support Action Sports. Yeah and some us are getting into surfing!
ASC is a youth-led non-for-profit volunteer organization that came into being when most of us where around the age of 14, 16, now we are 20 -24, and one member who has been in the riding community when most of us where not born.

We advocate for facilities, do consultation, design/build parks, put on events, hold youth learning programs for skateboarding, and in the future for BMX.

We just have a wheel of fun. www.asc-group.org

My number one hobby is snowboarding.. i go up to mainland Japan and ride every so often but since im in okinawa its hard to keep up that hobby.. Im a cert'd rescue diver but while i was traveling earlier this year i ended up with a crazy sinus issue so i couldnt dive all summer so i decided to pull my redline c-note out the closet and start riding street again when i met some local flatlanders that practice in my neighborhood(mizugama).. so i changed my course and picked up a flatland bike... now i just practice every day.

My name is Graham Cassidy, 27 years old, and i live in Mississauga ON. Canada.   I started out racing when I was 8, which progressed into some street and flat.  Ended up selling most of my stuff 7 or so years ago, when I had built up an old 2-Hip stoutboy to mess around on.  I was never that great, but would spend hours messing around on it.

I finally caught the bug again, and am slowly building up a '06 Suelo   ;D

I can't wait to get it finished!

age: physically: 19 Mentally: thats debatable
location: all over texas
riding since: long story, on and off since i was 14, recently had my bike stolen and only started building a new one a couple weeks ago.
Bike: Darwin frame with many random parts, no cranks or brakes (not as a fashion statement, more as a poverty statement)

A little about me:
-My two passions are music and riding flatland (with over analyzing life in general coming in a close third).
-I secretly aspire to be a writer, but cant stand to re-read anything i write.
-I am the most placid and passive person you will ever meet, except under 1 condition: loud noises when im trying to concentrate.
-I am the proudest 2%'er in the fighting aggie class of 2010.

Hopefully i will get to meet a bunch of my fellow texan riders as soon as i get my bike rolling!

Hi all,
Josh Marsele, 35.  Bristol, CT USA
High Voltage Linesman (IBEW 420)

Was 16-17X National champ for AFA Masters Series in 1989.  Went Pro in '90 for one comp, and basically 'retired' from the whole bike thing shortly thereafter.  Been a member over at Vintage BMX for a few years, but all of a sudden I'm itching to ride again, too. 
It's a great place for us old-timers to hang out and BS about the old times and "the way it was".  Building old bikes for nostalgia, etc.
I recently realized that I don't want to be done yet.  I've hashed over many cool memories I've got from riding, and I've got tons of them.
But I want more.  I'm here and I'm all about making some new ones.
I started to get the cobwebs out this summer doing fundamentals of flat on this 1983 Skyway TA (cue the laughtrack).  I've been laid-up recovering from surgery for a couple months and I've put some pegs and a Gyro on it for when I'm well enough...just to hold me over and ease back into it until I get something a tad bit "newer".  Sorry, no recent riding pix.
Hoping to make a few friends and contacts here so I can find some people to hang with when I start riding more.  Also to keep me motivated for all the riding I'm sure I'll be doing alone.  Trying to get 'connected'.

As this post in this thread is just to introduce myself and give some background, I'll post a few old pix of my former riding days for a chuckle.  From this point on, however, I'll be looking forward.

Started with vert in 86.
Picked up the other stuff along the way.
Now I'm married with children and I can't really afford to get hurt.
So I'm gonna focus on the most difficult discipline of BMX.
Flatland.
I'm not gonna get a flatland bike though.
I can't resist a jump or ledge.
A 20"TT is my compromise.

Hi all,

Live in Scotland, mainly

Have been riding on and off since about 1986. First dirt & race, then street in the mid 90s. Got interested in flatland in 2003/04 when I went to see the Worlds in Cologne. Seriously started riding flatland last year (2006) when I got myself a WTP DIV, but enjoy a hop and a grind too much so mainly ride an old Micro Machine with a mixed street/flatland set-up.  :ph34r:
Nice meeting you all.

Cheers,  :beer:

What up all, my name's Mike.  I'm 30 and I stay in West Los Angeles.  I used to ride a little flat back in 1987-1989; I recently saw "Joe Kid On A Stingray" and it inspired me to order a bike ('08 Signal) and try to pick it up again.

I'm not the greatest rider, but if anyone in the LA area is down to session, you can email me MikeC916TR (at) hotmail (dot) com.

these hurt^ but i love them
wasn't really the bike i wanted but it was the nicest bike my parents would buy for me at the time(i still have it) poor thing is rusted out, but it was very heavy, its a jumping bike, has oversized axles and what not so I am excited about having a "lighter, more compact" bike since I am only about 5'4.. we'll see ill keep you guys posted and im from southern cali,

I presently ride street/park with an S&M LAF but thanks to a post on here, I found a KHE Tantra frame cheap so I bought it to build it up. I haven't really rode flat regularly since about 1992, so I'm way old school, but I'm hoping to improve my skills a bit. Glad to be here.

I Live in south FL usa right around Ft. Lauterdale area.

big jumps have taken their toll on my boddy - and I still need to ridel.

I know only the most basic flat tricks (foot jam tailwhip) ext...

I plan to set my bike up full front and rear breaks - and
im in the market for a new frame ( mine is huge 21" with terribly long rear end )
and posibly new front forks
that have the 990 mounts on them.   mine do not have them now.
-been pondering getting 0 offset  or not - not shure what its all about yet.
(im a flat land newb)
plz hit me up if you have any advice
on products that make a diffrence.

If you like metal check out my bands page on www.myspace.com/brokenbytheburden. Due to many musical projects for the last 16yrs I,ve not had alot of time to ride enough untill now. I realize I'm 35 and need some me time so I'm back. Currently I'm riding an Ares but will be building up a KHE Millitant, so I'll be in the market for some new forks and other items in the near future. So if anyone likes the music hit us up with a friends request,and exsuse the recording we're in the process of rerecording since the loss of a bass player. Thanks-Brandon. :ph34r:

Hello to everyone on Global!  I must have been crazy to start riding flat 15 years ago.  My best years to date were on my bike and unfortunately it's been too long since I've been to the parking lot.  Funny thing is, I play all the "links" out in my head all the time and when I pick up a bike, I'm better than the last time I rode.  I guess once you've spent countless hours by yourself in a parking lot with everyone looking at you like your nuts, it just becomes a part of you.  Anyways, I look forward to hanging out at Global Flat.

Im a flight instructor first working toward my dream of flying for an airline and I flatland when Im not flying or not in school. I've been an on and off rider since I started riding flat, however Im getting back into it more than ever since I just started progressing alot more than I ever have. 99.9999% of the time I ride alone, that because I RARELY see any serious flatlanders around here. If anyone is around Farmngdale NY and wants to ride some flat, shoot me an email. Not sure how much longer I'll be here though, going for a new flight instructor job this summer hopefully...probably out in Cali or Florida where the weather is better. Hopefully the flat scene is better out in those states as well.

Hi everyone

Ilan GIGUEL (formerly "cheveulux" on this website but i lost my password lol)
20 yo
riding : aprox 3, but lots of dead periods

Paris Area France, ride in Opera in Paris
St Martin Darwin frame, Mike's bars, profile cranks, sequence pegs, macneil seat combo, nankai freecoaster, wellgo magnesium pedals.
breakless
though I ride in a very popular spot I like to practice alone, but of course it's allways a delight to meet friends for a jam from time to time

I'm happy to be back to flatland, I stopped ridding 6 months ago for wrists problems and lack of time due to my studies. (Im studying english in the university)
But it seems that Flatland can't possibly be forgotten
I perpetually compete in amateur class but to be honest I just like to ride, and learn what I want to.

I also am fond of photography, street photography mainly, check it out if you are interested :

Hello, I right now do not BMX in anyway but My LBS is having a huge sale and I want to get into both BMX and Flatland. Right now I MTB race in Wisconsin (USA) and I also Unicycle. I am a beginer at unicycling but want to get into flat and street with it later.

Because I am planning to get a BMX bike, if I were to get a street BMX bike would I be able to use it for beginner flatland?

As long as you have 4 pegs, it will be fine in the beginning. I've heard the DaFunction from KHE is a great street/flat bike.

it it would be ok, like i got a haro f2, and i can flat on it, but i dunno, i find that it's heavy and, instead of getting a street bike for flat just see if you can get a cheep flat bike from the start? i found when riding the haro, which you can ofcourse flat on, that i ended up modding it more to suit what i was doing, like i pulled the seat as far forward on the post as possible, a flatland bike might take take of these things for you like, with the seat, the shorter Top Tube will bring 'er closer for you. thats my 23 cents anyway peace

What's up guys, my name is Ray. I started riding way back in the day and I'm finding there are alot of old schoolers which is cool to see. This site looks amazing and I've never had an outlet to so many other flat riders. Very exciting.  I ride an older GT Show which was always something I wanted as a kid right as I got out. I finally got one when I got back into riding a few years back.

I'm hoping to get a new school ride together and not sure what to do w the Show. I'd love to keep it as it means alot to me. Looking fwd to meeting you all and progressing as a rider (again) =) Word....

Hey everyone. My names Duncan, 35, Surrey England. I used love tricking around back in the day till i was about 16 but never really had the patience / understanding to flatland. I always had an admiration for it though. Some o stuff guys where pulling back then had me amazed and nowadays! More amazed!  -_- ...  I rode the 2008 london to brighton on my sons BMX and had such a laugh on it! That was it! Hooked lol .. All over the net looking at vids n bikes!! I ended up with an 07 equilibrium (yeah far toooo good for me but figured that whatever happens, its not the due to a sh*t bike!) cos it was all i could get that had both brakes for the right kinda money.

For me its a challenge! Something i could never really do...  Getting the basics down right now and lovin it!! Forgotton the joy in nail smthin new! ;D..

One thing i can give back with is paintwork. Any advice u need then let me know. I been painting cars / motorbikes for farrr tooooo long!

cheers

Hey there I'm Dave.
29 from Melbourne, Australia- now living in Tokyo.
Haven't ridden for bout 14 years, but looking to get back into things....and get a bike anyday now.  Used to get by on a Torker 2 rok' on (pretty sure that was the model), and have searched around but can't seem to see anything on the net. Anyone ever had one/ heard of one? Love to see a pic.

I'm gonna post a thread soon asking for help with a bike purchase, so I'd appreciate any advice- look out for it.

Really happy to see the flatland scene is big in Melbourne, and hear the same in Tokyo.
If anyone can recommend a spot to check out some locals in Tokyo that'd be great- so far I've only seen one guy at yoyogi park!

It's great everyone seems so welcoming, especially for nostalgic older guys like me. Looks like a great way to relax and maybe get back in shape a bit. Well see how it goes when I get a ride.

cheers,
Dave

My name is Chris, I live in Selbyville, DE during summers and go to old dominion university in norfolk, va. I am new to flatland, I bought a dk signal 08 a couple of months ago, but haven't really attempted flatland till a couple of weeks ago. I have been reading these forums for months getting some information about flatland and it has been really helpful and motivating for me to actually get out and try other things than fork glides :). 

Cya later.

Hello all,

Been lurking a bit and decided to register. Got into flat as a kid on a mid80s gt performer that I rode a year or two before getting into skating. Then in college needed a bike to get to class and got a haro sport (94?) that I rode for a few years. 97ish I got a poverty morales flatland frame (Always wanted a bike with twin top tubes like the haro master) and gutted my haro to make it. Rode it a year or so before I stopped riding.

Last year or so I've been riding my MTB around the neighborhood and the urge to do some other riding, especially tricks, has peaked. I normally don't have time to ride until my spud is asleep so flat is nice since I can do it in front of my house and I don't have to waste precious time driving somewhere. So I've finally dusted off my morales to do flat again as its been taunting me from the shed each summer. Having fun relearning the few basic old school balance and rolling tricks I knew.

Sup guys,

My name is Ty, I'm from North Dakota and I'm 25. I've never ridden seriously until now.  I've skated and snowboarded since I was 9 but now in my older age I've lost interest in both quite a bit and flatland has always intrigued me so I figured I'd move onto it.  I picked up a 2005 SE Racing Quadangle for really cheap last week, so I'll be riding that until I can get a real flatland bike.

     I am 25 year old living in Hillside, NJ USA. I started riding when I was 14 but nothing crazy. When I got my first car at 18, I put the Bike away and started street racing. I fell out of the BMX seen until now. A couple of my friends bought mountain bikes and so did I. Since there is not always a mountain around I dusted off my 10 year old Dyno Detour and started to ride again. I got on this forum to meet other riders from my area and progress in the sport.

HEY PEEPS!

'Sup Fellow Flatland Dawgs?

I'm "MOOSE" from Alaska, a girl and old! (41).  Heh...beat ya, HAVOK..aka Tony.  ;D 

I'm a total newb to Flatland and got a KHE Stylus  last month, too.  I just put on some better brakes and sometime I plan on getting 3 piece cranks, but for now, it's a decent little entry level bike (I work part time at a bike shop which is sweet to get discounts).   

I've been trying out stuff from Matt Wilhelm's famous DVD, "Ground Rules," which is awesome! It's cool going out each time and learning.

CIAO, DANIELE and ANDREA! It's cool to see some young ladeeze in the sport and wish you the best of luck (I'm so inspired by Erin Donao..she is such a bad ass!). Is Flatland popular in Italy? 

There's not too many flatlanders in Interior Alaska :( but maybe I can influence some friends.   ^_^

See ya later!

anyway, i started riding flatland again after a seventeen year break, which seems like a common deal around here on the boards. my wife and i practice at an abandoned basketball court a few blocks from our house. riding flat again has been constantly in my thoughts for many years, but going to voodoo purty much sealed the deal. . . ordered a couple bikes from FF a few days later and have been sore since.

i've been lurking GF for the past couple months, not posting anything cuz i thought the proper etiquette was to post to the introduction thread first, and yeah, i've been blowing it off...

i hope to meet some of y'all at the Lake Charles jam this saturday...  looking forward to it!

but yea anyway, my name is Jesse, i'm 21 years old, and i'm 100% new to flatland basically.. i rode street for about 5 years in my teens and i was pretty good at it, but then drugs took control of my life..  actually i'm still addicted to heroin, but i plan to detox myself in a few days and start riding again.. the main reason i wanna start riding flatland is because its just so limitless and like an artform, not to mention i no longer have health insurance like i did in my teens haha, n i dont see myself getting severely hurt riding flat (though i'm not stupid and i know you can still get hurt pretty good), but at least i wont be knockin out teeth n sh*t (damn ghetto wallrides!!)

Hello,
I have just this year returned to riding, in part thanks to this forum. The last that I rode was in the early 90's. Alot of people seem to think bmx is just for kids. Riding seems to be even more fun now than is was in the years past.
I am 33 and live in Indiana,USA.

     "Old" rider here.  I guess I am a renoob.  Born in Kansas City, MO in 1971. Raced BMX from 1981-1984. Caught the flatland freestyle bug in 1984 and rode until 1992. I loved rolling tricks and multiple boomerangs. Rode vert a little too. Quit because I was supposed to be an adult, and being an adult means not having fun. :huh:

Over the years, I missed riding and so badly wanted another BMX bike. In 2001, I started riding mountain bikes and had a blast. I raced for two seasons.   After 4 broken ribs, concussions, broken elbow, and terrible infections of poison ivy, I stopped in late 2004, and focused on work and moved to New York.

I started riding fixed wheel bikes in 2003, and rode that around in NYC for a few years. Riding fixed was the closest to riding freestlye. I leaned to ride backwards, and could track stand for 45 min in my apartment.  

Flash to today, 2008. I find myself in York, PA. I still ride mountain bikes (got a single speed and a full suspension 29er).   If the trails are too wet, I ride fixed downtown.     Fixed is kind of fun, but not as much fun as a flatland bike.    In May, I realized I now live in one of the historic spots of my favorite activity.     I HAVE to get back to riding flatland!

Right now, I am looking for a used or new flatland bike to get back to riding. I cannot believe how small and light the new bikes are!    Looking for new friends to ride with in the York, PA area.    

Oh, and I am female.   Hope that is not a problem with anyone.

Cheers,
Amy

and right now i'm on day 2 of my self detox.. n i'm not that sick

the reason i'm motivated to quit now is cuz i wont have any money until the first of the month.. and i'm tired of needin somethin to feel right... if it werent for my neighbors, i wouldnt even have this habit... 95% of the time i get my dope with their money, cuz they give me like 100 bucks everyday til they run out of money to go score dope for em n i get free dope out of it.. so i told em what the deal is, n said i'll still get it for them, but they need to stop with the everyday sh*t, get a brick or somethin so i wont have to get it for ya every single day, n only like once a week

still waiting to get my unemployment check so i can buy a DK signal, i already told my dad when my money is coming and for him to make sure he watches me get on the computer and order the bike... he's all about me gettin back into riding again cuz he knows how passionate i used to be about it, n he's hoping that it'll give me an outlet to express myself instead of shootin up n noddin off on the couch in front of the tv all day

Riding flatland since: Just decided to about 48 hours ago
Bike: DK Signal... ordered

I've always liked bikes, but never owned a freestyle bike as a kid.  I guess now the term is flatland.  I have an 8 y.o. son and found myself riding his crappy walmart bike trying to do tricks.
So I just ordered a DK Signal from flatlandfuel.com to have a bike of my own.

Last night I did my first barspins on my son's bike.  They're sketchy and beginner but just learning those felt awesome.

Hopefully I'll keep progressing.

Age: 29

Location: Geel, Belgium

Riding since: Just a month or two.
I had been thinking of buying a buying a bmx bike for a couple of years now, everytime summertime was coming and all my friends god mad about skateboarding again; but never got to really do it.
Being 'already' 29 nd a girl (yeah, to some people, a female person bmx-ing or skate- or snowboarding still seems to be a curiosity...), it felt like a bit of an odd decision, but I seldomly felt so dedicated to something new as I do now, so it must have been a really good choice!
In the small city where I live, there were as good as no bmx-ers when I started, but when I got my bike, a lot of my skateboarding friends (and also some of the little kids that had been watching us all for a few weeks) followed, and now it's bmx-mania all over the place!

Bike: wethepeople nova; i reckoned buying the cheapest bike of a decent brand would get me started allright, 'cause at that time, I did not really know what kind of stuff I would use the bike for the most: street, flatland, or just plain getting me to and from work... Turned out flatland is really my thing, i'm kinda addicted... Soon I'm gonna make some minor adjustments to the nova to get some weight of the damn thing... (although I hope some push-ups will also make a difference ;-) )

Really interesting forum this is, by the way!

Flatland could be a great tool for you to use to help you stay clean....

One of the most important things you need to do is
        STOP GETTING YOUR NEIGHBORS DOPE!!

Hi,

Name: Ohms
Location: London, England
Age: 30
Riding since: Just starting, go easy on me ;-)

Thought I'd do a quick introduction....

About to start learning flatland at the grand old age of 30 !!!

Been a fan of it for quite some time now (many years).

Due to unfortunate circumstances, I now find myself with a fair bit of time on my hands, so thought I should really should do something I enjoy...

So things are looking up, anyway  ;D

not going to start a begineers what do I do etc thread, as I already see there is a great resource of that on here already (top stuff)

Just about to get a regular BMX off a friend who does mainly street/freestyle - just so I can work on balance and getting used to flatland etc - will buy a specific Flatland bike in a month or so.

Little more about myself in general:

Into hip hop (none of this fiddy rubbish (IMO) etc though), breaks and anything I can scratch too/with  :mellow:

Graffiti/Modern Art: wouldn't call myself a graff artist, but have a blackbook and do some bits for friends every now and then - no murials, trains, walls etc

Anyway, glad to be part of the forum now - as said earlier, great resource and hopefully a good compainon through my new world of flatland riding...

Cheers - Ohms

Hi there,

I'm Steve, and I am almost 19 yrs old.
I live in Aurora, CO right now but I am moving to Vermont at the beginning of the winter to finish college in my homestate, then I'll be heading back out to a big city or maybe right back to Denver in a couple years.  I have been a bmx street rider for around 4 or 5 years and I am just getting started in flatland, so right now i am riding my street bike for both, but am going to start getting a flatland bike together peice by peice as soon as possible.

Bike: Last bike was a Hoffman EP. Currently bikeless  :angry:

I'm so happy to have found these forums. I didn't know such an active community of riders existed... rad!

Speaking of Rad, I started riding just after the movie Rad BMX (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mD5riS3DB6k) came out. I watched that movie over and over againBefore that I had been dirt-jumping an old Raleigh bike (the ones with the fake red gas tank and shocks... it weighed a ton). Then I found an old chrome kuwahara frame and started learning cherrypickers, decades, tailwhips, etc...

I spent the next ten years learning old school flat tricks until I injured my hips really bad one day messing around at the halfpipe. Since then I had a few flatland bikes but it hurt too much to ride so I settled for a career as a bike mechanic (http://bicycletutor.com/)... I'm currently self-employed as a webmaster and photographer (http://www.alexramon.com/).

Anyways, I can't ever stop thinking about riding flat. Whenever I daydream it's always about riding flat on that dream bike. I've decided to build that dream bike and start riding again... these forums are just the inspiration I need. I'll be posting a wanted ad in the forums shortly... thanks so much!

Cheers :beer:

Hellow All .. I`am from Bulgaria. I love Flatland since 12 years ago, but I don`t have a opportunity to have a Flatland bike, in the old days (1996) it was very expensive for me and my family to buy flatland bike. But the time is changed.  I decided to buy i bike - but it is very interesting for me what will think people around me ... my family , my friends ... my girlfriend ...  Everyone didn`t agree with me, even my girlfrient told me she will not be with me if I buy a bike.  Now ... I don`t have a girlfriend .. but I have a bike :) my dream to have a flatland bike is turned into reality. I am old guy ... 27 years .. but when I jump onto bike I feel like a child. I remember my dreams from time wnen I was a teenager. I don`t have much freetime to ride , because I work and I can ride only in the evening for one or two hours, it is dark and it is cold now (-5 degree) , sometimes is raining , sometimes is snowing , the spot is terrific , it is full with small stones and leaves and branches from the trees (the spot is in the park) , it is unequal it`s not flat  it is on steps, there is no other riders I ride alone ... and so on and so on ....
There is many disadvantage for me to ride Flatland , but I don`t give up , it is challenge for me to learn flatland in this circumstance. I feel great when I learn a new trick, when I am on the edge .. one wrong step and I am on the ground :) My body feel amazing , my brain feel free. It is very stange feeling when I ride ... I forget about everything in this world , there is no problems , I feel freedom ... my brain is crystal purity :)
I love Flatland, I always was love it, and I always will Love it.

 hiya,

i'm Kelvin Wong, from the ever humid country Singapore (aka xin jia por).

i started riding flat around 1993 or 94, almost stopped flatlanding from 2004 to 2007(mostly as an occasional weekend rider) starting to pick up flatlanding again to fight the flab, mentally and physically.

my occupation = visually artist/ sculptor/ children's art teacher

my ride = red ares choise, steingrabber 'y' bar and fork, peregrine hp 48s rims, hoffman generator 4x bearing front, nankai techo lite rear, 3pc chromoly arestic cranks, grey wellego magnesium unsld pedals, grey 99er seat, grey khe lamellos.

new bikes 2009(in the process of setting up) = one blk st martin effiel, one red st martin effiel.

the blk effiel will be set up with all blk parts from the choise (aka vader),

the red effiel (aka chick magnet)= st martin michiko forks, primo pro 4x bearings, purple profile/nankai/magic fruits free coaster, primo balance 7005, frnt and rear 48s, shadow conspiracy 3b spokes, colony pivitol post and seat, still waiting for either sequence or 09 steingrabber bars

singapore has a great bmx store called 20inchcircle(www.20incho.com (http://www.20incho.com)), the brands that they distribute are sold at REALLY good prices and the prices are quoted in Singapore dollars.
hit the site, click forum, scroll down the page till u see header 'bicycle shopping centre', and just below it ,click the link - '20inch0 shop' and you will see whats avalible.

ps: i'm not paid to plug the shop, i'm trying just supporting another rider-own venture.

Big Ups from Texas,

I'm GT and I became a bike rider right after I saw Rad at the movies..seriously

After twenty years in BMX I've seen some amazing things done on bikes. I've seen most of our sport's legends up-close and personal and even got to know some of them briefly.

I once helped Dennis McCoy adjust his back brakes, mid-run.  I also once patched up a scraped and tired Chase Gouin with bandages and English muffins waay back in the day when he was visiting Texas hanging with Tex. Time flies. 

The person I am today and the profession I chose to pursue has everything to do with the fact that I am a proud BMX rider.  I traveled around the country, saw some amazing riding, and had the adventures of my life from the seat of a 20 inch bike. 4130 represent.

Besides the flatland habit, I'm also a photographer, writer, and I produce video content and sports programming for Yahoo! Inc.

My current ride is a Sick Child Badda Bling. I'm still pretty old school so I still rock both brakes and a nice tall setup -a la Kevin Jones. I'm trying to get back to a decent level and start learning some new stuff again.

Like every other rider Ive been on and off between life, etc..This time is different though because I've never been in better shape and my balance has improved greatly with Yoga.
good times.

Age 39 ... 40 in a few months. :beer: and still kickin'!
Angola, Indiana

I rode hard core freestyle from about 83 until 93.  I hung it up for too long because of a career and a busy life.  A couple years ago, I dug out my old Hutch Trick Star, cleaned it up, and started working on my old tricks.  I've rode on and off the past couple years.  Just last week, I bought a new ride, a DK Opsis, so I'm adjusting to a new set up, but so far loving it.  I'm looking to ride just for fun now and to help get me back into a little better shape.

Here are a couple photos from last week on my old TS ride.

My name is Tod Miller, and I am returning to flat after almost 20 years away, though I have been riding street this whole time.  Loving riding with the ATX crew at the OG.  Started riding freestyle in 85 and I get that feeling of freedom riding still to this day!

i suppose i should do this.
i am terry dean, but i usually go by dean. i rode street and park a lot about 4-5 years ago, then i moved up here to seattle for school and couldn't afford to bring my bmx, so i stopped riding. about a month ago i decided to get back into it, so i built up a bike from used parts mostly found on bmxboard.
i'm having fun on the street bike and all, but it's just not the same. i want to give flatland a try, it's always looked super fun so why not?
i am working on building up my frist flatland bike. i just bought skubasteve's pink frame/fork/bar set he was trying to unload in the sell forum, and have a pretty beat khe freecoaster kicking around, and my friend johann (who is also on here and pointed me in this direction) is sending me some pegs, but that's as far as i've gotten so far.
money's tight, but i can't wait to get the bike done and start learning some rad stuff!

hi, my name ralph macchio. you might remember me from such hit films as 'the karate kid' HIYA! and also, 'the outsiders' HIYA! well.... i didn't actually say "HIYA!" in the outsiders, but i tried to. every time, though, they'd just get madder and madder 'cause it wasn't in the script. "I'm an actor!" i would scream, "I worked with Pat Morita, God damn it!"... but they just ignored me... then they cut my hair with a switchblade for realz, yo! that sh*t sucked. anyway, i never worked again after that, so i changed my name to Peter Ashworth and moved to Vancouver, British Columbia. Times were tough then. i often had to roll pennies just to get a h**ker! (and by h**ker, i mean loaf of bread) damn, son. sometimes, i'd even flip an 8-ball or 2 for some extra cash... but on the DL 'cause aparently drugs are bad and you can for really-real get in trouble... from, like, the police and the courts and stuff! who knew, right? anyway, one day i was delivering a "package" from one place to another when this junkie kid rolls up to me and is all like, "flaph in stimmle rorrr"... or some crazy sh*t, i dunno, i don't speak too much "junkie" and he was drunk or high or something. so then i got thinking; DAMN! this kid is high and i didn't get a cut! so i punched the little kid that was walking past with his gradmother RIGHT IN THE MOUTH! yes i did! and then that grandmother chick started talking about law suits, or jump suits, or some crazy sh*t that i couldn't understand, so i pushed the kid off of the bike he fell over when i hit him and took off! totally! but, like, the bike was all small and stuff and kinda sucked for ridin' real fast like when my brother used to race in the AMA... he was totally sponsored and stuff too... then he ate too many pringle potato chips and had anal leakage so bad he died... well, almost died... he did get kinda sick though... or, i imagine he would if i really had a brother... wouldn't having a brother be cool... you could totally read eachothers mind and pee on eachothers toothbrushes! RAD! anyway, they put me in a little cell with padded walls, but the floor was really hard... like.., you could almost break your teeth out on it if you wanted to... but i REFUSED to give up that bike in honour of the fallen child who sacrificed his sunny afternoon so i could ride around in little circles until i fall over.... then get up and ride in some more circles.

Wow.. I know it's been a while since I rode (3 or 4 years), but I've recently moved and one of my old buddies is near.  Neither of us has ridden lately, but here I go.. I'm Ken, I live in Virginia Beach now, I suck at riding compared to some of the videos I've been watching.. I'm ready to learn again.. I'm 38.. I've ridden with tons of guys you'd all call relics (Aaron Benke, Dennis McCoy DMC Days, Ron Wilkerson back in 2Hip days, Kevin Jones when he rode for Skyway)... Anyway, I was riding before scuffing was cool and was in on the ground floor of tons of tricks when I rode in Florida as a kid.. I built I guess what is considered a mid-school bike a few years ago (infinity alter ego.. will be my hybrid now).. looking at a couple bikes in the for sale section, but anyway..

Hello, name is Laurence, started riding in 1983 on a Redline MXII. The Hutch Trickstar soon became my frame of choice and is to do this day =) I still ride from time, I also weld, sculpt, paint, build frames and cartes for museums and galleries here in NYC, and I'm into fitness and Martial Arts. Basically anything to do with balance or expression. I've also published, but with internet finally consuming print media, I'm leaning more toward net ventures lately. I'm also an avid gamer =)

Flatland has always been my passion, and taught me that absolutely anything is possible if you first learn how to break the equation into smaller parts and conquer each individually. Anyway, I'm glad I found this forum, best wishes to those who stay true.

been lurking the site for the last year... since pedal.. well was just a pissing match constantly. so i stopped going on that site, and see it died.  i started looking on here for whats new to ride, and i ended up with a simple V3 which at first i hated, but im getting the hang of its crampedness. hense another thing i looked up.. custom flat frames.. and il be getting one made soon.

bio:

started riding alot around 95.  mainly rode street and small trails, but rode flat when i didn't have anyone to ride with (99% of the time i rode alone).   there was an awakening when some guy that rode when i was younger got on my bike and did a ton of scuffing, rolling tricks i never tried til after (it was 98, and the guy didnt ride since 88.. and still could do all the stuff).  around that time though, i got out of high school and work took away most of the riding time.  started to try to ride again in 04 with a few local guys that still ride, (ron baker, mark harris, rosie, paul m..) but then some lady hit me with her car when i was going to work in 05, and now ive been trying to get my old tricks back.. it's been difficult especially with a plate in my arm making me feel like im uneven all the time.  im also trying new stuff, just don't have the motivation. 

more on.. in 05 after i got hit.  i found a lone diamondback strikezone in the trash.. which started a small collection of freestyler's (gt's since they were a favorite).

anyways nice to see there's another flat forum, and its "only" flat..

Name: John
Location: Atlanta, GA
Bike: 87 Haro Team Master, TuffWheels w/ coaster brake

Had a custom Haro Sport when i was 13 with Sturmy Archer drum brakes (sigh), but dropped it pretty quick for skateboarding. I think my parents sold it to the paperboy for $75. I don't know why I got out so fast, but I didn't even think about it again until recently. Fast forward to March 2009 when I was able to score an old Master from my friend Greg. I just wanted a rad old school bike to cruise on but now i've been bit by the flatland bug. I've been riding like hell and getting mad sore but I can't get enough.

Skateboarding was getting hard on me as I got older (broken wrist, fingers) and i hated that i had to drive out to the parks just to ride; all i ever wanted was my own personal mini-half (which wasn't gonna happen) and street-skating just wasn't as fun for me anymore.

I kinda wish i had had that surgery on my wrist cuz it's kinda jacked now. But it would be some really gnarly surgery. Anyway recently I was able to hook up with some really incredible Atlanta riders thanks to this forum and i wanna say thanks! This site is so awesome! I don't think i woulda ever found these dudes any other way. Props to the ATL guys for being cool and showin me a dope spot.

I can't believe how much flatland has progressed since I left in the late 80's. sh*t is just blowing my mind. So far my favorite trick is the tailwhip, of which i have landed 8. I thought i'd never be able to pull that trick in my lifetime (as novice as it is I know) I was so psyched! So anyway, yeah, the Haro is getting seriously ridiculous... a little too old school I guess. Soon I hope to get a newer flatland bike (from this century).

Oh yeah, who cares, but i'm also into synthesizers, photography, indian food, 70's movies, RC airplanes, apple macsh*t, booty bass, electro, neon, and car stereos. Thanks yo.

Started riding back in the 80's until the mid 90's. Took a break, rode downhill MTBs and freeriding. Then back to riding street on a 20. Tore a disc in my lower back in November of 08 which kept me off of a bike. Flatland is about the only riding discipline I can really do hardcore without the risk of serious injury to my spine. That being said, I'm happy about it.

Special thanks to George Ten Eyck from Ten/Eyck New Media for hooking me up with a nice kit so i could get started.

Riding since: Flat - Few Days; But rode in general for a while
Bike: KHE Militant FF

Me being a painball-head for about 4 years, and photography took a toll on my wallet. So I thought of starting flat on the days im not at the field playing or out taking pictures.
Starting to ride flat is very interesting and has grasped my attention real quick.  I'm still learning and its a slow progress at the moment.  Just getting those barspins, still working on the fork wheelies, manuals (know from previous riding), squeakers (not looking so great on them)

If anyone can give me a guideline on tricks to learn from in order or tips in general, feel free to message me or catch me on AIM

Looking to seeing you guys around here  :beer: :mellow:

I have been out of the loop for quite sometime.  I began riding in 1987 with my friend, erm...let's call him Matt Spoolen.  Now I am back on my bike and am looking forward to many a sessions at the Mattland Mule warehouse.  You could say I am old school, but I am very intrigued with the new style of riding.  New school, old school, or alternative school...it's all riding to me, and I like it!

I used to ride in the early 80's when freestyle was gaining popularity, but I converted to skateboarding when the skate shop opened (and still skate to this day). From 2001-2004 I owned a skate shop, indoor skate/bmx park and screen-printing studio. And at the present time I work part-time as an Illustrator at a local college and run a small screen-printing studio with my wife.

My kids started riding bikes recently so I decided to get a bike and tag along. Over the last couple of months I have found myself having just as much fun as when I was a wee lad. I have a lot to catch up on so I hope to learn as much as I can from this site.

Bike: Hitman Judas

I rode from training wheels until high school when I moved from Southern California to a small town(McKinney) North of Dallas Texas. In California I raced a few times at the Orange YMCA, did plenty of dirt jumping but mainly rode street. The move to McKinney effectively killed my riding because of the lack of street spots and no real scene to speak of (other than Joe and his sick dirt track). I moved to San Marcos, an hour South of Austin in 2000 and got back on the bike for that year as I discovered I could get around town faster on my bike than in my car. Another long break and I finally bought myself a flatland specific bike this year.
I was first exposed to flatland in person at Woodward and it has been my riding focus from that time on, however my bomb proof almost 40 lb S&M Dirtbike proved very difficult for me to balance on. Years nothing but drinking beer and playing disc golf haven't helped my fitness and I feel like I'm starting from scratch.

hi all -
My name is Jesse, I'm 31, in Lafayette, IN, USA and trying to learn some flatland. I used to ride bmx bikes a lot back in the day, and am just starting to get back into. flatland appeals to me for it's zen-like balance aspects.. and also i hope i'll be less prone to break myself than riding a bunch of street! lol.

i've pieced together an old dyno slammer for my flatland riding. just got it finished up last week. i have a copy of ground rules and have been lurking on here for a while. my first time out on the slammer, i didn't make much progress. i tried some fork glides and scuffing tricks, but my balance just isn't happening yet, so i ended up just doing endos for an hour. as a result of some serious soreness, i realized that i'm going to have to build up some of the muscles in my back and core to help with the balance.

If anyone has any recommended beginner moves to work on, or any tips for learning beginner moves, i'd love to hear em.

One day i was just stroling along on my new bmx and i was bored. I deiced to see if i could do some tricks. I was making some up when i came across trying to this trick i thought i made up (but i didnt make it up cause i found out it was called 'fork glide' :D) i could do this closing my eyes the next day!

My name is Ted, I live near Richmond, Indiana.  I started riding BMX back before Redline Flight Cranks first came out...so that dates me I suppose.  I will be 43 years old this month and I am a bike fanatic.  I build my own bikes, wheels, etc. and don't plan on stopping any time soon.  I love hardcore music like Slipknot and Meshuggah and oldschool metal.  I have a couple of race cruisers and a mountain bike, and soon a flatland bike when my parts get here! 

I plan on riding forever.  If I end up in a wheelchair someday, I will learn to do tricks in it.  I will be 80, with Slayer cranked and my bike underneath me.  My wife thinks I'm insane but at least I'm not out getting into trouble!

Flatlanders have a unique, tight community.  It's not snooty and uptight like BMX racing can sometimes get.  I see people on this board lending other people a hand, and sharing their techniques.  THAT is the main reason I want to be part of this.  And of course, the tricks are fantastic! 

Flatland is new to me, so when I get pizza shins I'll post pics and just keep on going.  I hope that when I learn new things I can help others out.  Thanks for having me here and for all the good info, I've learned a lot just by reading the posts here.  Peace...

have my bmx for about a week now but only flatlanding since couple days. the tricks aren't going for sh*t but thats normal lol, i can do barspin, footjam endo, forkglide (but can't ride out yet)

i bought my bmx a week ago with the idea for flatland but then me and some friends found this amazing dirt place, did that for couple days, just not my thing.

With flatland i really enjoy myself, even when it keeps failing lol.

Another reason why i choose flatland and not street is that flatlanders are more helpfull/ friendly and are willing to help eachothers with techinques.
and ofcourse the tricks are alot cooler ;D
i hope i'l manage forkglide by the end of the week and can move on to firehydrant and tailwhip ^_^

Hey all.  Steve here.

I was a flatlander way back in the 80's and 90's.  Experienced the evolution from hopping tricks, too scuffing to balance.  Got into BMX racing in the early 90's but kept on flatlanding to keep the balance and focus.

Took a few years (cough) decade or so off and now am starting to get back into it.  My oldest son just turned 4 and I got him a 16" DK general lee.   That gave me the bug and now I am building up an 09 HB strowler

Ride on.

Just registered, mainly to say how great all the 'how to' vids are!

I just put an 87 haro master together to start riding on. Only finished it a few days ago. I used to ride in the mid/late 80's but mainly as transport as i was a skateboarder so never really did much 'trick' riding on my bike, although i did take it to our local skatepark a few times.

Just built the haro to cruise about on, carving local skateparks and stuff, but have just started trying a bit of flatland, hence me finding the site. Still geting used to the bike and learning my balance so we'll see how far i can take it.

I can already feel i need to work on my arm mucles LOL.

Great site and a brilliant resource!

I guess it's time to introduce myself. I'm yet another late thirties old guy that's getting back into riding after a long break (10 years? Something like that...). No bike yet, but I plan on ordering one from FF soon. Thinking of a Paris III.

It should be interesting, that's for sure- all of this brakeless and zero offset stuff will force me to learn everything like it's new.

I've got it all for free from a friend who stopped riding years ago and just needed to get rid of the stuff he didn't use anymore before he move in his new house.
He also gave me a 14mm front hub and a taska 10mm freecoaster. (48H)
So before i really can get into flatland i need to finish building up my bike. Should i look for some cheap rims and spokes or complete wheels.
If anyone can help me let me know. Appreciate all your help!

-some "recreational" drug use might have hindered my progression for a while. 3.5 yrs of not getting loaded seems to be helping my riding alot

Hey Guys!
I'm Attila Toth, and I'm moving into the USA this summer for 3 month, and I'd like to bring my bike with me.
I came from Hungary, to Ohio. I'll work at Camp Wise for 9 weeks. It is not much distance from Cleveland, OH, but I dont know exactly.
After the work done, I'll traveling.
Hopefully I can visit Washington DC, Las Vegas, San Francisco and New York.

I would like to find riders, to ride and chill with, and I'd like to make new friendships:)
I have never been in the USA, so I'd like to explore the cities, and partiing with you.
And I dont know much about the accomodations, location, prices.
One of my friends travel with me, she is a flatlander too, but she dont brings her bike.

If you like, please get in contact with me, to figure out how to ride, and the others!
here is my email:
bmx.atmany@gmail.com
or write a feedback in the forum.

I started flatland a few weeks ago, right now I can do an endo (and hold it a couple of seconds), riding backwards (ass on handlebars), fork glide. I'm not lucky 'cause I'm very little so I need a lot of strength to learn tricks.  I practice a lot. :)

Hi folks, I'm Andrew, 29, originally from Manchester UK but now living in the South.. Started riding around 1994 and rode mainly park and vert, and dabbled in flat, lived in Portimao, Portugal 2000 / 2001 and rode flat a lot more there with some of the local talent.. got into playing drums & guitars about 6 years ago and went out on the bike less and less, so I've decided now it's time to get back on the bike... currently shopping around for a new flat ride and should be back in action very soon, can't wait.  -_-

Riding since - 82? Took 89-2009 off. started agian May 2010
Location - Hamilton, Ontario - Canada
Bike - 2002(??) GT performer. Bought it for cheap to get back riding.

I used to Race, dirt, street and flatland in the late 80's early 90's. I can't remember when I got rid of my last bike. Quit to take up skateboarding. Quit that to take up job. Bought the GT with the intention of getting excercise. I figure this is a good way to get excercise doing something I like rather than lifting weights or something boring. I tried running but I have bunions.

I have always been on 2 wheels. I also have a Honda Shadow 1100 ACE motorcycle, its fun but had to do a funky chiken on it. I have been riding motorcycles since 1993.

Age: 25

I live in Manhattan (NYC) pretty close to St. Vartan and Tomkins which is dope.  I've been riding street for a year or two but I've always wanted to get seriously into flatland.  Just bought an A-Damn LT from FlatlandFuel and it's coming next week.

I don't have any where near enough tools or "know how" to properly put this bike together myself.  Flatlandfuel recommended Dah Shop for the assembly.  I know a couple guys that way, but it's all the way downtown for me.  Would Metro Bikes be able to handle the assembly or would they screw something up because it's kind a bmx/flatland speciality bike?

If there are any flatland nubs like me who want to ride in Manhattan, once my bike is up and running I plan on riding as much as I can.

Cheers,

Matt

Post by: froghammer on June 03, 2010, 08:55:24 PM
They can assemble it, Matt. It comes pretty much fully assembled- you'll just need to put on the bars, connect the brakes, put the front wheel on, set the seat height and get the rear wheel in the right spot.

But get yourself some tools. For the most part you can get away with a socket wrench, socket extension and whatever size fits your wheel nuts, an adjustable crescent wrench and a metric hex key set. That'll do you for basic adjustments and emergencies while out riding.

Oh, and you're DEFINITELY going to need a pump with a pressure dial that can go up to about 130psi or so. Park Tools makes a fairly inexpensive one.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself
Post by: mattworkman on June 04, 2010, 08:05:17 AM
Hey Frog, thanks for the advice.

I do own a socket wrench, extension, cresent, no cone-wrench yet, and hex keys.  I can do basic basic maintenence on my street bike, but I ride brakeless so there isn't too much fine tuning.  I let the shop guys true the wheels and the hard stuff.

So you are saying Metro Bikes can probably handle it?  Brakes are still some what of a mystery to me and I don't want to learn on a brand new bike.  Also I've read up on freecoasters and tried to wrap my head around their construction but if something goes wrong with that thing I'm definitely going to have a pro fix it for me.  I'm not about to crack it open and start re-greasing bearings, hah.

I have a pump with a dial. For street I've been riding with more or less 80 psi and I kind of like a little give in my tires.  It hurts my wrists less when I'm landing.

Is it cool to pump the tires that high?  I've heard different things about the KHE rims ... I might start at 100 to be safe, unless that is way off base ... I wouldn't know at this point.

Thanks again,

Matt

Title: Re: Introduce yourself
Post by: froghammer on June 07, 2010, 09:19:26 PM
I have a KHE and I have my rims at 120. It's the tubes that become the weakest link most of the time (They'll cut around the valve, so try to put on and take off your pump straight- don't wiggle back and forth to get it off...). Anyway, don't worry about going that high. For street you want some give, but for flatland you definitely don't because it just increases rolling resistance.

Dope, thanks Roy and Joe for the hook up.  Rode my bike today a little bit, the slack on the freecoaster is a new experience for me.  The frame is tiny and light compared to my MirraCo but overall tailwhips, manuals, glides are much easier for me to control.

It just poured for about an hour, but if it drys up a little I'll go ride tonight and tomorrow.

Peace.

Hey Fellas.

I'm Justin living in Fort Lauderdale, FL I'm 37 and today is the first time riding since 1989.
I got my first set of pegs and a rotor in 1984 rode summers in Maine for 4-5 years then I got caught up in girls and High School sports, then College, then work, then baby, now I'm back on the steed. I just sessioned on my new bike and it felt awesome! I didn't land much but came close. Relearning tailwhips, boomerangs, glides and squeakers.

I'll be riding in Ft. Laud behind Barnes and Noble and Sports Authority. There's a little shade back there. I pop the hatch on my VW and kick old school DMC, Beasties, LL and some new school drum and bass.

Come hang and ride if your near by.

Ya it's funny how the combination of the music and bike makes me feel like I'm 14 in my parents garage with the boom box blaring 'No Sleep to Brooklyn'.

Back then no internet and no one rode. They all looked at me and my goofy bike like I was crazy.

It's so cool to have a community here. For these young dudes to keep the sport alive.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself
Post by: Deca on June 14, 2010, 09:55:51 PM
Yo!  New to the forums, not new to the sport but still a beginner.

I started riding flat back in like 2005 or so.  I'd always been really interested when I'd see comps on tv or vids and stuff but kinda assumed it was just beyond my ability.  At one point I was just like "whatever, I can do this stuff," and just decided to get crackin.

I hadn't really ridden for a couple years but this summer I was just feelin' it and got back into it.  Been out every day that weather allows.  I used to post a lot on the pedal bmx forums but they're pretty barren these days, sadly.  It helps me keep myself motivated and stuff if I have a "daily riding" thread or something similar to just post what I've been up to in, get feedback from other people and not be afraid to ask stupid questions that have prolly been asked a thousand times.

As for my ride, it's a frankenbike basically.  It started as a Gary Fisher Rig back in the day, but through the help of a guy I met on pedal back in the day I acquired a KHE Messerschmitt frame, DK Signal crank, old Nankai freecoaster (that doesn't really work all that well) and new pegs.  It's only running a front brake and could probably use some maintenance all around, but I've been riding it and it's not falling apart.  I would like to have a fully flat dedicated bike, I can't help feeling like some tricks would be easier with less offset and smaller handlebars.  Would love to buy an Opsis but just don't have the money or job right now.

I've got some tricks down, and a lot sorta halfway there.  Fork glides and no handed fork glides, cyclones, dork wheelies, backwards steamrollers (with variations)...I may be forgetting some but I think that's pretty much everything I have really comfortable.  Sad I know given I started riding 5 years ago.  I still have trouble riding out of tailwhips even but I don't know if a rear brake would solve that problem :/

I've been working HARD on fire hydrants, which have been eluding me for longer than I can remember.  Squeakers are kinda in the same boat as that, though I haven't really been focusing on them lately.  Forward steamrollers, infinity glides, funky chickens, elbow glides, and megaspins (well at least 360s or so for now) are other things I've been working on.  My main focus at the moment has definitely been the fire hydrant.

Oh well that was probably too long of an intro post.  Hopefully I can learn some stuff here and maybe meet some people in the area to ride with.

Sup everyone? I'm a 25 y/o rider out of Delaware (small state in US for those who dont know ). I was always into riding (street,dirt,flat) since I was real young but shifted over to flat 99% of the time. With flatland I didnt have to worry about getting kicked off someones land or spending money I didnt have on ramps etc. Just went out the street and rode. 

     I quit riding when I was 16/17..was more intrigued by partying,vehicles,and girls.. Got back on my bike about 2 years ago..got sick ..parked the bike until about 2 months ago and now Im better off to ride. Glad there is a forum like this because I dont know of anyone who does flat around here. My best friend rides wit me sometimes but he spends most of his time dirt jumping.

My bike is a 1999 Haro Master that im trying to slowly rebuild (thanks to flatlandfuel,ebay, and this sites classifieds section). 99er seat,primo tenderizer pedals,inertia bars,peregrine super pro 48 wheels, primo alum pegs,primo 23t sprocket, poverty cranks.  Heres a pic from earlier..i'm trying to learn steamrollers (http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w8/mwhite111884/steam.jpg)

Do yourself a favor; buy some plastic pedals. They last way longer than you may think, save a good bit of weight, aren't as deadly as metal pedals, and are pretty cheap.

Im 33, I tried to ride flatland as a kid but pretty much gave up 20" bikes once I turned 16.  Just in the past 3-4 years Ive been collecting vintage BMX bikes and have rediscovered my love for flatland.  Im amazed at the level of tricks that even no-name kids are pulling these days.  Unreal.  While I'll never be able to compete with that, I think Im about to build a new-school ride.  STUFF IS PRICEY these days! 
As a kid I rode an 85 Diamondback Hot Streak.  Ive recently aquired a few of those as well as some other things, including my favorite bike from that era:  an 85 GT Pro Performer. Yeah, I was way into Martin Aparijo bitd.  Those bouncy tricks are just plain funny now, even though I still cant do much of what they did in the 80s!
Now, watching Kevin Jones videos makes me wanna climb back on and attempt to get rad.

Welcome to the forum Manida.

I wouldnt worry too much about the size of the frame. I just got back into flatland and I bought myself a 99 GT performer for $75. I rode it for about a week and decided it was too much of a tank and I needed a smaller lighter bike for flatland.

I bought my current Quamen G4 complete for $300 and it is amazing. It is a lot smaller than the GT but it is so much more agile and flickable. Find yourself a nice used flatland specific complete and ride.

Hey all,

Name is Gregory and I don't ride but I'm a HUGE flatland fan.  A while back ago, I directed a 35mm fiction short film that revolved around flatland called, "Sax's Final Orbit" featuring the riding of Jesse Puente and Day Smith. 

I'm gearing up to try (again) to have a feature version produced, so I want to get to know the community again. Would love to pick the brains of you riders, get your input and ideas. Will keep you up-to-date when I get my website up (hopefully by next week).

Anyway, I think of all the "extreme" sports flatland is the most creative and poetic. It's incredibly underrated and I really hope I can be a part of helping the world see how special it is what you guys do. 

Please keep riding.

G.

Just ordered my bike and waiting to start. I was supposed to start at 17 but due to a car accident it put me off everything for awhile. Pretty excited to get out there and start riding. I've always been interested in flat, and skated for awhile. Now that I have the cash to get a bike I went ahead and did it. Already been watching a ton of videos and got the Ground rules dvd.


You cannot be able to have a ride because of your injuries during the car accident. I also want to have my own bike and ride on it. You should master how to drive a bike carefully to avoid another car accident.

As my username implies......

So I am 33, and always LOVED watching flat....like hypnotized when it was on the xgames.
NEVER had a BMX, always had a hand me down whatever (girls stingray, mountain bike, garbage day dad fix up...you get the idea), and just started getting back into bikes (balloon tire 50's bike) and figured why the heck not flat?

My wife? she thinks I am nuts (but supports the idea kinda...lol).  My almost 2 year old LOVES seeing me on a bicycle.  My friends are going in two directions.  First being "awesome", or "reinventing yourself, that is cool" or second, "you are crazy", "you are gonna get hurt" and so on.

I am thinking new bike that is "right" for flatland, but at the same time, I need to know that I will like it enough and that I am not too old to try something COMPLETELY new.  But still deciding on a craigslist BMX and some specific parts to learn or new bike that will be more of an investment.

Either way, I got on my friends borrowed BMX and it kinda motivated me to learn/try even harder.  Maybe I am crazy.

I feel like I'm learning to ride a bike again. I can't really bust anything yet. I'm gonna go nuts when I do! I've been working on fork glides, fire hydrant, and manual.

I remember seeing some videos on youtube about flatland and I absolutely loved it, thought of it as breakdancing on a bike but way more extreme, and I wanted to turn this into my next hobby because all I do is sit at home on the computer..lame. So I just put my brothers bike (what i think is a mongoose) back together and I was told I should start out with the simple basics I will post a picture of what I am using later, peace

Hey there,

Adam here from St. Paul, MN.  One of the guys at work (one of the forum posters here) got into flatland about a year ago and has now converted half the staff into bike junkies.  I just impulse purchased a Haro F3 from one of the local bike shops but will probably return it Monday so I can order up a DK Opsis from Dan's.  We'll see how a weekend with it goes first, but from what I've heard and been reading I should just get the Opsis instead. 

Always thought riding flat was more fun to watch than the ramp stuff, and with some people to ride with who are fairly interested in it, might as well give it a shot.  Plus, chicks like tricks, right?

I'm fred, I'm a 26 year old lightweight from Ontario thats wanted to flatland since I was like 13 when I seen an amazing rider out in a tennis courts near my place. Picked up a cheap bike at that age but never learned much due to friends always being on the move and I was never out solo so. Picked up a little bit but not much.

Now I'm just out of shape and don't want to pedal my ass across town seeing as I can just drive lol So I figure it's a good time to learn something new that Ive always wanted to learn anyways while getting my ass off the couch and trying to smoke less.

wassup doods im Ian, i was born in Philippines and i lived in IOWA USA for 10years. riding for about 4 months now. got into flatland through my friends. One of them told me to go to this website and i absolutely love it. I guess we would all be stuck in other not so cool websites for flatland if it weren't for Global-flat.

Hola. My name is Justin, I'm 34 years old, been riding since I was 14 or so. My flatland took a hiatus for awhile (after I discovered ramps and Chenga skatepark) but I've been back at it for the past two years. I've been to this site numerous times, but finally joined. It's good to be here.

Hey guys. Just started riding again after a break from age 17-25. Totally bit by the bug, but still getting hung up on the same tricks as when I was 17. I'm slightly better at whiplashes than before, but still hopeless with the essentials like hang 5s and manuals.

Anyway, i've been flipping through a 'show off your ride' type thread around here, and that inspired me to join and probably post pics of my newly tuned up ride from 2002 with a fresh coat of paint. (its an EP with some stuff cut off)

I'll be back for help soon im sure.

Thanks!

Hey, this is Tai

I grew up with a 20 in bike, got kind of serious when I was 16 (1996 with no internet...no magazines... no bike shop within an hours' drive time)

I had a mail order form from Dan's Comp when I ordered the KHE instructional video and a set of 4 pegs and a gyro cuz flat REALLY got my attention. I was determined to hook my bike up and learn how to spin a gerator on my back wheel.

Never happened.
I could never figure out what I was doing wrong.

I took a break for a few years. When I was 22 I bought an EP and built it up and really enjoyed the shortness and sharp angles of the frame and was amazed at the freecoaster.

Had to sell it a year later to pay rent. :(

Now, 8 years later, watching some flat on YouTube and finding this forum really got me thinking I can try to start again and hopefully learn a handful of tricks. I picked up a Haro Master M6 for $100. All it needs is a new set of bars that are a bit lower. Those are on the way :)
(http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr349/taifighter/23335123_photobucket_5322_.jpg)


I hope I can use the trick tips and explanations on physics here to figure this sh*t out... it'd kinda be like a dream come true, if that doesn't sound too sappy.

*the one thing that frustrates me the most is controlling the frame when trying a halflash or fork glyde*    any tips?

In my other spare time, I sell cell phones for VZW.

I have a project car (heavily modified Audi TT).

I play bass in an outlaw cowboy band

Dan here, 33 year old from the Boston, MA area.

I rode freestyle from 11 yeas old to about 16.  I dabled in it from time to time in college and before I got married.  I never got very good or put a lot of time into it, but I always loved hopping in my bike.  It seemed like every time I got riding I only rode long enough to relearn the tricks I already knew.  Forever novice I guess.^_^

After marriage and two kids I pulled my old Dyno Slammer (thnk Trevor Meyer late 90's) out of the basement and started riding.  I was hooked again.  I recently sold it to a fellow member of BMXmuseum.com and grabbed a used fly micromachine.  I'm loving the new geometry and a freecoaster.  How did we all ride without a freecoaster back in the day!?  I don't think I could do brakeless...

I just pulled a new trick tonight.  I'm stoked to be acutally pushing forward. 

It's nice to be part of an online community with so many resources.

Seriously.

I wanted a Hooligan. Couldn't afford it, so I rode a Villain for a little bit. The bike was stolen. Cruised around on a Menace for a little bit without practicing. Purchased a Dyno Slammer in '00/'01. Rode it a few times and reality hit. I've gained interest again, but cannot find a bike. My Slammer is too nice to ride. It was one of the last generation "mid-school" bikes. Lol

Hi everyone!

This summer, all I did was riding all day in a school yard near my house in montreal. I started riding because I saw someone bunnyhop with a friend and was really impressed.

At first, I tought bmx was only street and trial but I found bmxtrix.com. Here I discovered flatland bmx. I ride flatland because i'm scared to ride street or trials and I really love it.

Now, I really need a winter spot because in Canada the winter is really cold and snowy and I won't hibernate.

Hi, my name is Joe, and I'm addicted to BMX.
I never got involved in BMX as a kid, but always wanted to.
I tried to get me step-son involved, and it didn't really take. But I still have the passion.

1.5 years ago, our local BMX track had a charity event, and it got me back on the bike at age 42.

Now I have a kick ass race bike, a street bike that needs upgrades and a heavy as hell flatland bike.

Since I work downtown, there are lighted places to ride flat in the winter (plus it doesn't get too cold) So I'm going to try to get some balance and bike control over the winter.

I really want to upgrade my existing ride since it does weigh 50 pounds. But it has some good parts, so hopefully over time, I'll gain some skills and get a nice modern ride.

I always wanted an 87 gt pro freestyle tour bike back in the day, now I got me a nice dayglo pink one. I never did any freestyle before, but I ride a unicycle and i'm sure i'll be able to do some flatland tricks in a parade and look good doing it. I was wondering if you guys could sujust some tricks that look impresive and aren't super hard or dangerous. I need to look good and not take out anyone else at the parade.

I haven't introduced myself yet so here it goes.....
  My name is Thomas and I'm from Hagerstown MD and I am the ONLY peson in my town who rides flatland regularly. There is an awesome street scene here but only one other flatlander and he doesn't ride much anymore.
   When I was 12 and 13 years old I was very into flatland and I was pretty good for a little guy but being 85lbs riding a bike that weighed almost 40lbs I hit a big stumbling block with rolling tricks. Then drugs, alcohol and girls came around and the flatland bike collected dust for 11 or 12 years until 9 months ago when I stumbled onto RadDad's "My First Decade" video and I thought to myself I wonder if I can still do a decade? Dusted my bike off, pumped up the tires and I've been riding ever since!

Hello,

I was evidentially suposed to do this a long time ago (whoops!) Probably nobody will read this anyway, but maybe somebody will and go "oh, well that explains a lot."

Name: Jake Umberger
Answers to: Jacob, Jake or "Hay old guy!"
Age: 37
Location: Fort Lupton Colorado
Riding since: 1986 officially and actually learning tricks (85 on a BMX bike goofing around and riding my friends on the pegs)
Bike: Not entirely accurate, but this is my current ride for the most part:
http://www.global-flat.com/bikeconf2/setup.php?ID=2087 (http://www.global-flat.com/bikeconf2/setup.php?ID=2087)

Differences are Eclat levers, Eastern Fuquay Flyer Grips, Animal Bar Ends, Stolen Class Ring Sprocket, Mechanik Half-Trac Chain, KHE Astern Freecoaster, Odyssey 7K-A Rims, 

Notable History: Lets see.... In 1988 Started riding for Kory Riddell on his "Ground Crew" team (him and I by that time). Did a few parades and a couple of shows before the team officially disbanded.

Started my own team with a few friends called "Ground Effects" (inspired by Kevin Jones' GT add in Go: The Riders Manual.) Only a couple of us were ever noteworthy. The team was myself, Brian Benson, John Cox, Matt Sprinkle, Zach Sprinkle (that name might ring a bell), Seth Axelson, Jason Neufeld, and Abel Gooch (that name might ring a bell too). The team pretty much completely disbanded in 94.

Knew and rode with most Colorado riders in the 90's at one time or another (minus Leif Valin. He moved from CO before I could meet him) like Pat Dehne, Jay Eggleston, Mike Hill (rode flat with him most of the time), Mike and Nick Chessnoe, Brian "Yella" Gavagan, Troy McMurray, Matt Howard, Marcin Biegunajtys and a bunch of others I cant remember.

In 1990 started working at a shop called "Jim Dye's Bikes" as a mechanic (those from Stockton, CA might remember that shop. They moved it to CO when it was sold) Later they renamed it Cycle Madness and I later became the Manager. The shop was bought out from under me by the guys I brought in as investors in 95 (get them non disclosures kids).

From 95 to 2000 I still rode but the shop selling was a pretty big blow to me. I rode a lot less and any chances of a career in BMX vanished. In 2001 tried to recapture that passion and opened a new shop called "Side Show." Partner pulled funding and we closed it two months after opening the doors. Kept the bike, but put it away for what I thought was for good.

2005 realized that smoking cigarettes had replaced the buzz I got from riding and started riding again in order to quit smoking, but just barely and didn't give up the smokes. 2009 finally got serious about quitting smoking and started riding more and smoking less. 2010 finally quit smoking and loving riding again. Been smoke free since 12/12/10. Don't start smoking kids.

Working on getting everything back now. Was pretty good back in 95. Was probably able to compete in ams at that point. Now I am not quite back at square one, but close.

That's it. Like I said, who cares. Nobody is going to read it anyway. If your in Colorado though, I could do with someone to ride with.

Jake

Hi, just joined.

Nickname: flatfoot

Age: 38

Location: Bay Area, California.

Riding since: a couple days ago.  Rode BMX as a kid in the 80s but got into skateboarding and never looked back until more recently.  I always admired flat; almost quit skating twice to pursue it.  Seems like the perfect, non-boring sport: relatively safe, creative, techy, stylee, gives a workout....  Figure I'd give it a go now while I still can.  Physically, I'm a lot younger than most of my peers, and I'm kind of a health nut, so I probably got quit a few years for my new hobby.

Hi, just joined the global-flat community and I have to say that I love it.  I wish there was a community like this when I started riding in the mid 90's.

Eric from Fallon, NV

37 yrs old

Riding on and off since I was 15 but got really serious about flatland in the mid 90's in my mid-twenties. Rode everyday for about 4 or 5 years and then my priorties changed (wife and daughter and no regrets about that) but flatland was always on my mind. Now I'm pushing forty and 280 lbs and needed to get off my ass.  So it seemed naturall to get back on my bike. It's like starting over again, honestly. But I still love being on my bike. There are no other flatlanders here in the this small town, I hope that changes soon.

Has been 10 years since I rode everyday, my the scene has changed, by that I mean It has completely died in this country. I cannot find one bike store in Perth with a Flatland Bike. I have just joined an Australian FL Forum called Flatland-Australia.com.  Hope to meet up with some members soon.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA
My last flatland session was probably in 1994.  For the past 17 years I've been playing mostly with mountain bikes and parachutes, but the itch to roll some tricks hasn't gone away.  So I ordered a flatland bike (wow they're hard to find these days) and I'm looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.  I've broken 12 bones and had a couple orthopedic surgeries since hanging up the flatland bike way back then, so we'll see how easily I recover each morning from the previous day's wipe-outs.  But I've stayed in shape, so hopefully it won't be too bad.

If anyone on these forums is in the Milwaukee area, wants to ride (flatland or mountain bikes) or play with parachutes, let me know!

Cheers,

Chris

Hey yall

I'm Marko, I'm 24 years old, and I live in Richmond Virginia. I used to BMX from when I was like 15 until I was 18 then my bike got jacked and I found out that I actually had other responsibilities. Booo. But now I'm back, and even though I've been intrigued by flatland all along, now I am seriously getting into it. Picked up a KHE A-damn about 4 days ago, and I'm starting to get back in the groove. My shins are starting to remember how BMX works lol. My flatland expertise has been limited to these past 4 days, but I got fork glides down, tailwhips sometimes, and trackstands all day long. Anyone in the Richmond area who wants to ride together and teach me the ropes? Hit me up anytime! I'll be on this board probably all the time. Look forward to learning some new tricks and meeting some new folks!

Welcome! There have to be some guys on here in Richmond. Just have to be.

BTW I don't know how many guys on here still use shin guards, but I still swear by my Poor Boy shin guards from bitd. I may look like I'm rockin big black socks, but I would rather not look cool and progress then smash my shins up. ;)

Welcome back!

My history is about the same as yours. I just started up again a few months ago too and pretty much lost everything I could ever do. But I am getting it back trick by trick and made a post for others in that same situation to see my progression in hopes that it encourages others to stick with it and keep working. At risk at blowing my own horn, maybe you will find it inspirational? If nothing else it will give you a place to start?

ALOHA everyone!!


I am stoked to be here....as you can see from my username I am new to the "new school" scene....the usual bikes I ride and do flatland on are freestyle bikes from 1985 to 1988. I have been riding flatland since 1985, rode everyday back in high school up till 1991, then got out of it, and was back on the scene in 2001. I was still riding old school bikes, had a 1987 GT Pro Freestyle Tour in dayglo pink, and a 1986 Redline RL20II in turqouise. So, as you can see I have a lot of catching up to do now that I have decided to jump to a new school ride.


I look forward to hangin' loose with you guys here!

I have been riding since the early 80s and have been hooked day one. Riding has been my peace when everything goes haywire in my life. I wouldn't or couldn't think of not riding. Its been that much of a part of my life, I love this Lifestyle because for me its much more than a sport. I have had some goodtimes and found alot of friends because of my bike.  I too do not get to ride as much, due to I'm a father and husband, but when I do ride its just like day one all over again.  So keep riding Morgan my friend and find your peace.

I know what you mean about peace.  Flat gives me a complete escape from the pressures life can bring, just some time to focus on nothing but riding.  I was stoked last night 'cos I rode out of my first move ever last night... not bad after two years of practice!  What a great feeling, and I shared it with my grandson, who's also learning to ride too!

Welcome back Nathan, ryan and atwater. You will find out very quickly that there are a lot of us that are...don't want to say old... Let's say "born a more comfortable distance from the apocalypse." It seems to me there are more of us still riding than new guys.

What got me over that last bit of weirdness was talking to Duncan Gore. He was saying that other guys play basket ball or baseball or throw a football at pic nics and get togethers (in nathans case I would guess a rugby ball or cricket). We ride bikes instead. What's the difference? Put my mind at ease for good.

Hope to meet some cool riders here from all over the world and share the love for flatland...

Just starting riding flat again and a lot has changed since the last time a sat on a flatland bike. When i was 17 i tried to figure out tricks by looking at VHS tapes and reading RideBMX. So for me it's a very welcome change to be able to check out how-to's on Utube and get tricktips on Flatland forums.

Ride on!

Hey all, myself in a nutshell:

Name: Cam Stevens
Age: 33
Location: Canada
Riding since: 1990
Bike History: GT Vertigo > Morales Flatland, > KHE Premium Lagger > Ares Ashura > St. Martin Evo

First discovered Flatland at a bikeshow in Toronto and never looked back. I never became an amazing rider, but good enough... I just rode for fun. As I got older my riding time was replaced by work. After a few years of no riding I decided to buy myself a new bike and start all over. Flatland is always with us and hard to let go.

Cheers

hey guys,

Austin Dennis,
age: 26
From: DFW N. Texas area.

I've been riding bmx since I was a kid, raced a little, rode trails, but mostly street.  I am stoked to be getting into flatland.  I'm currently on an S&M black bike, but am in the market for more flatland friendly ride.

BMX bikes that I currently own: '96 S&M Dirtbike, '98 S&M Dirtbike, '05 S&M blackbike.

I really love S&M bikes so if anyone wants to sell or trade for a Sabbath I am definitely interested.

Hey GF,

Name: Goran
Age: 29
Location: London, UK -> Zagreb, Croatia
Riding (on&off) since: '96
Bike History: Haro Blammo (don't diss, was young & naive back then) -> Standard Tao

First got into flatland 'cos my uncle used to build BMX racer bikes for my cousins and my cousin show'd me some vids of some flatlanding and was like "wtf! is that even possible?!". Became a flat rider from then on in a predominantly street/dirt crew, but haven't ridden seriously for like 10 years and it's about time I got back into it with summer just hitting. Just need to get my bike fixed up in time.

Used to favour spots like London South Bank, Croydon and (my favourite) the local B&Q carpark!

Riding since: 2000
Bike: master


I'm new to tricks. I practiced on a 2011 opsis (not mine) for a week and the question hit me: Can I improve on tricks or do tricks any easier with another flatland bike? I'm concerned with rider and bike balance and i mainly want to do spinning tricks like megaspin. I'm 5'2" tall at 155 pounds. Any suggestions for a complete bike to purchase, i'll be choosing from flatlandfuel's selection of complete bikes.

Input would be great from any physique riders, but i would really like to hear from shorter riders :)

One thing you will notice is that you are actually probably right in the average age range here. I mention that for one reason. I think it helps the confidence to know your not an outlier. Many of us are in that same age range. Your one of us!

Hello there, Well not long ago bought my kids there first BMX which happens to be a Radio Valac Black. My kids are showing a growning interest in Flatland than anything else and this site seemed the right direction.
Me myself I used to race I had a Mongoose Super goose 3 back in the day, But I could do a Cherry Picker. Any how My kids are getting to grips with the bike and so far my son can do a bunny hop (not very high) and my daughter is trying to do a Dork Wheelie.

After having a quick go on the bike myself have relised this may be a (expensive) beginners bike as it quite heavy and on the rear.

Replaced with GT Performer (sold in 1994 along with upgraded Peregrine 48s,  ACS Z rims, a truckload of spare parts and complete run of Freestylin'  for $125. Now  I'm kicking myself after seeing the prices for old school BMX parts).


Tried to get back in to flatland in 2000 after buying a Haro Shredder, but after 10 years worth of beer and smoking, my fat azz couldn't ride for more than 20 mins.


Finally lost some weight, kicked smoking and scored a 2010 Opsis for a great price off CL last month.


Some  Beastie Boys/Run DMC, my ride and an empty lot and I'm 15 again !

Funny you should say that. The finishing touches are going into my custom Standard 250L Frame. For my 6 month present to myself I figured I would have spent over $1000 on cigarettes, so as a reward I bought my self a custom frame instead. Not sure how long you have been quit, but reward yourself if no one else will. You deserve it.

Riding since: 1997 - 2001, 2011 - ...
Bike: WeThePeople Pony frame, St.Martin Mikado fork & mainly other old stuff originally from a GT Performer.

I'm trying to pick up riding since a few months.
I've done nothing but sitting behind a desk for the last 8 years, so it's kind of a bumpy road to get my groove back.
I started out way too enthusiastic, riding too long at once, trying to re-learn old tricks as well as learning new stuff... it was too much of a workout for my body, which lead to some back-injury.
So now I'm on a slower pace: as long as I pull some tricks and overall stability still improves every time I ride, and as long as I'm still able to walk the next day, I'm a happy man  :) .

It's great to see that global-flat serves all riders, young and new to bmx, older and riding since forever, and also a lot of people re-discovering flatland after years of doing other things.

I've always wanted to try Flatland. I found a EP for sale locally. So I picked it up and am in the process of putting it back together to give flatland a try.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself
Post by: Jake4130 on October 29, 2011, 12:12:14 AM
Welcome Doug! Glad your out there riding!

The ep was a great bike for sure, but be prepared to replace a lot of it as you get better, especially if you are an older guy. Your wrists will get jacked really quick because the bikes those days were sooooooo heavy.

I actually started back on a similar bike about a year and a half ago (37 lbs) and started replacing parts as I went along to lighten up the bike. 6 months later I was on an almost completely different bike (26 lbs). lol Im not a big weight fiend, but it does have an effect on how long you ride in a session and now much wear and tear your body takes (especially your wrists). The older you are, the more that means.

I just bring it ups because I really want to see you give it a good go and have a lot of fun!

Ben from Australia. 27. Been riding bmx all my life, had a mountain bike, rode it once, now rusting away in my shed. Been interested in flatland for a long time seeing a little clip here or there (before the days of youtube), but only recently really trying to learn a little more than the basics I know. Have a old heavy schwinn that I've changed almost everything on, but decided that it was time for an upgrade, so started building a new flatland specific bike from scratch.
So far got me a colony cube frame, KGB electro bars, Colony wheels with a Nankai freecoster rear and colony agenda tyres, other bits and pieces from WTP and Colony. Got coming soon Cube forks, St Martin CD Sprocket, WTP Royal cranks, Colony BB. All thats left is some brakes, pegs, seat and seat post. Can't wait to ride this thing, aint nothing like riding a bike you built from scratch. Just hope I don't face-plant and brake the thing on the first ride.

Im currently riding a 20 inch toptube we the people street bike. But I'm going to hopefully build up a more suitable bike. So If anybody has any suggestions on what I should do to really start enjoying flatland I would really appreciate it. THANKS GUYS

I have always wanted a bmx when I was young and have now got my first ever bmx 2000 GT Performer as I wanted to go biking with my daughters. OK I am 40 young!!!
Now that I have got myself a bmx I started to do research and quite like flatland tricks etc, dont think  I will be going on ramps etc...
Is it too late for me and is my GT ok for flatland??

Its definitely not too late karl. Your right on time.

The GT will get you going, but I can tell you that at our age, you will quickly want something more modern. The weight of those bikes wear you out in about 30 minutes and will seriously kill your wrists after a while. Have fun on it, but start saving for and planning new bike. You will be glad you did.

Jake4130, thanks for the spirit uplift!
Lol that was what I was worried about, the weight of the GT. Maybe I could source a second hand frame and fork as I am guessing those will be the heaviest.
I am finding it hard to even lift the GT to just do the barspin!

I'm pretty old school. I'll ride anything from vert to flat, but flat seems most interesting to me at the moment.


Started out riding with the guys in Corsicana Texas, a surprisingly decent scene in the 80's and early 90's for such a small town.


I haven't really ridden since 2001 or so when I was riding a lot of park with the Houston crew and did some flat there as well with Huck.


Trying to find some guys to ride with here in SA.  Started talking to Leather Hands (Paul) and trying to get a flatland bike set up.


Dragging 40lbs of Haro around until I get a better bike will hopefully get the old muscles back in shape at least!

Ortonville, MI (near to Detroit)
Riding flat 4 years, on-and-off

I ride because I love to feel the edge without falling off. It is a way to push my mentality further into a balanced circle of life. My bicycle is the coolest thing I have ever seen O0 . I love flatland, supporting new riders, and the overall growth of an underappreciated sport.

I had a very good start into the flat world. A very special individual who was around during the era when flatland first hit the scene was my teacher and good friend. He is now almost 45 and can do a f*cking blender!!! He rode with the likes of chase gouin (when he was still allowed in the US) bobby carter, and many other west-coast flatland innovators. I was very blessed to have a teacher, motivator, and friend to share the brilliant sport of flatland.

favorite flatland movies are Ded, all of the Dorkin films, and anything with Kevin Jones, simon obrien, or jesse puente.


Right now i am living in Poland, with my girlfriend and do not have my bike >:( !!! I will be returning to Michigan in March and hope to be back on my bike the day that plane hits the ground!!

Show me some love anytime

signature trick: scorpion hang nothing (you like that dont you? B) )

Hi,

My name is Asa. I'm 40 years old and a New Yorker. I just got back into this even though I haven't rode in years. I am an old school freestyler who did tricks in the 80's and beginning 90's. Dennis McCoy was the man back than when we started moving over to rolling tricks which was the beginning of a new era in case you didn't know. :)

This is just an expensive hobby and I finally am able to buy any part there is out there so I just wanted to get started just for fun on a custom bike I am building right now.

My favorite riders are Moto Saski and Matthias Dandois in this new generation.

Age: 37

Riding since: 70's
Bike: Building up an Autum Blitz
 
Rode BMX on street/trail/etc from a young kid up through my 20's, raced a little BMX in my teens. In my 20s got into mountain riding and faster road rides. I got into motorcylces pretty heavy and my cycling was recreational here and there for many years. About 6 years ago I decided to start commuting to work on a road bike (26 miles round trip) a couple days a week which sparked my cycling again.
 
I now have a few bikes based on the ride I'm doing...
Flat: Soon to be complete Autum Blitz
Daily/all-around/commuter: 2012 Cannondale Hooligan (my 2nd Hooli, a lot of fun)
BMX: 2008 MirraCo Icon Moto
Road: 2007 Carbon Synapse 
Commuting/touring: 2009 Gary Fisher Mendota
Mountain: 2008 Trek Fuel EX8
 
The Hooligan with the 20" wheels is the most fun, prob from my BMX days I love the smaller bikes and smaller wheels. 
 
I have been reading the forum a bit, trying to figure out a build as I didn't like the few complete bikes that I found. Decided to go through Flatlandfuel for my order, some great guys there, very cool and helpful.
 
Since my build is all planned out now I have been reading up on the "Trick of the month" pages to decide where to start... lot's of great info here that will keep me busy for a long time.
 
Thanks,
James

hey guys, my name's Joe, I'm 33 and I shred the streets of LA. I got a call last night from the 80's and they wanted my Hutch back. I told him to GTFO and listen to some new Michael Jackson record or something. Last thing I remember was that I was riding at Redondo Beach with Martin and Eddie one afternoon. I did a Miami Hop Hop and my front ACS Z-rim snapped. My head hit the floor and it started to bleed, then I remember the paramedic cutting my mullet right before I passed out. I just woke up a few days ago and it was 2012! I ran out of the house only to see riders now riding similar looking black frames, and the things they do now are crazy! Back then, it took us 2 minutes to finish one trick and now riders seem to do 20 tricks in 20 seconds. What blew my mind was they are not using brakes anymore. Thank God my Hutch TrickStyler is still here or else I would go nuts:

My bike:

what flatland means to me:
So i ride BMX. Many people wonder why i do, some view it as a waste of time, others wonder why this lil black boy trying to kill himself doing white people thing. Not until you enter into our circle will you understand. BMX isn't just a past time or a sport, it is an art form. Hours of hard work, dedication, injuries and stressful moments go into this, with your only coach being yourself, dependin
[/size]
[/color][/size]g only on your connection with your star player to keep you going. Should it be compared to anything in similarity, i'd say ballet. To the immature mind you will instantly think 'oh that's gay!' However a ballet requires years of dedication, strength and impeccable balance to be considered even an ameteur. Thus the journey begins! Training day after day, month after month and years on hand, mastering tricks and learning to link them into combinations of speed, technicality and difficulty to create something as beautiful to behold. Through this sport i've personally created bonds in paces i never would have reached, with friends in all corners of the globe, from UK to Australia, Barbados to Indonesia, learning to communicate in over 4 languages and learning new cultures. How can one view such as a waste of time? My bike has made a name for me, i have gained the respect of many and holds to me privileges i've never fathom of having before. I love what i do! My name is Tevin Mills and i have been active in BMX for 2 years and this has been my story.[/color][/b]

Hey guys, my first post here. I'm just getting back in to flatland after 10 years of zero riding! Ha left the fun begin. I'll ask a question here quickly before I start a new topic to see if I have any luck... I'm going to mix flatland with light street riding and am buying new bars. Question is, do I need to worry about having narrow bars? Does is that make a big difference to how hard it is to do flatland tricks?


Cheers guys

Planning on shuffling around parts and riding again soon, but we'll see. I got old, gained weight, and have kids now. My 2 year-old is getting a balance bike for christmas; she will never have to experience training wheels. She is the future.

(reintroduction, haha)


Hey guys!

Bike: Hoffman Deebo


Hey everyone, wanted to reintroduce myself since I've been out of the game for a few years.


father intro'ed me to flatland at 7, in love ever since. I was posting here when I has 15-16 and riding on a KGB I built. I spent way to much time on the forums and didn't practice enough and didn't have the right mindset about riding. just didn't have a good head on my shoulders period, kind of embarrassing.


I sold my bike to finance some things a few years ago, with every intention to replace it with something less specialized, that didn't happen.


I moved from home, got 2 jobs, fell in love with being a music producer (mostly from hearing the music on flat videos!) and got distracted.


found an old hoffman deebo in the woods at a friends and have been back in the game for about a month now and loving it. much better mindset. and much better understanding of the patience determination, hard work, and fun involved with riding! ill ride this tank for a good long while before upgrading because i realize now parts don't really matter, practice does.


Haven't lost any of the few tricks i knew... (fork glide, peg wheelie, barspins, tail whips) so I'm picking up where i left off and working on steamrollers






TL; DR Thank you guys for being awesome, and I'm glad to be back after a long break. Peace and love- JV

Post by: Jake4130 on January 04, 2013, 10:05:32 AM
Reeceflat, spend as much time on the bike as possible. Doesn't have to be constantly working on tricks. Take some time to goof off and just have fun with friends on your bike. Ride to your spot and hop curbs and peg wheelie stuff. Learn a little street with some street friends (whoppers, sliders, rollbacks, etc.) The more time you spend on the bike getting comfortable with it, the better you will be and the more you will progress.

I'm new and decided to get into flatland when I was a kid I owned a Dyno Air and a GT Interceptor and fell out of riding bikes after my Dyno Air got stolen.  I never did flatland when I was a kid, back then 20" bikes felt huge on me and today they feel rather tiny.  I'm doing research and I've noticed that there isn't many if at all complete flatland bikes and I might have to build my own.  So I'm here to learn what I can and hopefully I'll have a Flatland bike soon.

Hi, im andy 36years old from regensburg/germany. Riding street and old fashioned "freestyle" since 20years+ (dont remember exactly but also with years of no riding).
The last time in riding street i started thinking too much and bailed hard and often. However i made my dream come true and started to ride straight flatland since 3 months and i will definiteley keep going.
Unfortunateley at the moment it seems that im the only active flatlander in my town. (but i remember times back in the 90s apparently i was the only active BMXer here, unable to buy eaven pegs because there was no shop with BMX or internet..ummg)

Now riding a deco succubus-frame, assembled with parts from my (broken frame) suelo ex complete.

My other hobby is science in all its facets, and im collecting crude oil+minerals  ;D
-if somebody of you oil engineers out there would be able to send a small sample of crude oil, that would be great!!  :P

      Hello,
               My name is Sean Watkins and I live Jacksonville, Fl. I've been riding flatland since 1986 after seeing the movie "Rad". I'm still lucky enough to physically ride even though ten years as a firefighter almost ruined my back. I just try to find the time whenever I can which usually means keeping my bike in the back of the SUV and grabbing a session when a window of opportunity opens. I've continually progressed by pushing myself to learn new tricks regardless of the difficulty, and not allowing myself to stay with the "safe" tricks. I just enjoy riding for the rush of pulling a trick, the fellowship with my fellow riders, and exercise to stay young at heart. Peace

I'm Isaac.
I'm 41 years old.
I live in Phoenix, Arizona.

I started riding flatland when I was 12 and stopped when I went to college.
Life takes over and I have a super cool wife and some kids that learned to ride bikes last year so I'm getting back into riding myself.

I've ordered an S&M 20.5tt Intrikat frame and forks to start riding again. It's probably too long for the tricks most of you are doing these days but it's big enough for an old guy to ride and do some hang 5's on.

I'm stoked on where you all have taken the sport and your creativity with your riding. I feel blessed to still have the health and ability to chase the rush we all call flatland.

I look forward to getting to know many of you here on the forum.
Thanks,
Isaac

Been riding bmx religiously since 97-8ish. 26 now. I built a intrikat up last year, hardly touched it honestly. Couple fakies here and there, never really got into flat when I was young. Always enjoyed it. Recently my everyday/commuter 20" went out of commission. I've been spending more time, when the weather isn't below freezing, f*ckin around in a V slanted parking lot behind my apt. 

Ill continue to lurk most likely. Checking out bikes, watching how to's

Hello all,

I just turned 40 and decided to turn to BMX for my midlife crisis.  I have never done flatland before but used to do some simple stuff as a kid (wheelies, bunny hops, jumps, etc).  I picked up a Haro 300.3 a couple of weeks ago and have been checking out forums such as this one and youtube tutorials to figure out some basic tricks.

So far I can do some of the basics such as endo, pogos (front and back), fork glide, bar spin, manual/peg wheelie and rock walk.  The hardest part right now is feeling out my balance points so I can coast on just one wheel for an extended period.  Once I get the balance points down, I will try to work some of these tricks into combos.

Look forward to getting to know some other flatlanders.

Hi I'm Rob, 30 from Tamworth, England. I have been a fan of Flatland for years and rode for a short while in my early teens. I'm currently looking at getting my first bike very soon, I also do Downhill/Freeride MTB.

HI everyone! I am 22 years old and I currently live in Philadelphia, PA. I study engineering at Stony Brook University in Long Island and I've been riding for about 3 years BMX, 3 years fixed gear freestyle prior.

I really enjoy all aspects (except trails) of BMX but I identify the most with flatland, since it is the one discipline I ride the most and enjoy the most.

What's up, I'm in Central Florida US on the beach, been at flat for about 15 years on and off and back to street.. a couple 2-3 year breaks in there.
Started making my own Bars and forks and pegs. (there not perfect but they have held up about a year)
Finally broke down and bought my first new frame and fork (Intrikat combo) after putting about 25hrs a week on the courts on a micromachine. Been fighting with cliffhangers and messiahs for the last month. (I really wish I was smarter than the verification box)

@lowkeyfilmz1, sweet man so you weld your stuff?  What's up guys, i'm a new metal fabricator.  I make furniture, gates, birdhouses really anything a customer wants, you name it.  I've been an off and on flatlander for maybe about 7 years or so.  I'm not that good because I never really practice I guess because riding is just so fun I find it hard to just practice one trick at a time.  Though I plan on changing up my old riding routine and focusing on getting better.  I think the best trick I can probably do is a hang five to a steam roller. 

Anyways, who isn't a fan of KGB bikes?  Since they aren't around anymore and frames are usually 300+ and I just so happen to be a metal fabricator, I want to eventually take a crack at making a frame somewhat like the KGB Superpower or my favorite "the Psychonnecta."  Check out my site arcmanfab.com if you're bored.  I got a bender and roller both with a set of dies for 1" and 1.5" round tubing.  I also got a torch and stuff so bending the tubes in the right shape should be easy and I have a really nice notcher "the beast" so I can do angled notches.  It's the tool you use to cut the metal where round tube is to be connected to each other.

I got started on the DK signal which was a great bike for the price but the TT is too short for me as i'm 6'.  A few years ago I bought a KHE A-Damn which overall has been a great ride but for the price was sort of a rip off.  The spokes on both wheels kept going loose immediately and I paid a local bike shop to tighten them but I eventually switched the wheels out with my old DK signal's.  The Bars were huge so had lots of torque which was a nice feature but they were too big to do any bar tricks so totally pointless.  I bought some sick ass QUAMEN BAR-BE-Q's which kick all kinds of ass.  I installed a gyro and back brakes but there's just too many tacky cables and the fork wobbles since the gyro has a little peg of aluminum preventing the stem from sitting flush so i'm about to just remove the gyro and back brake for now.  Oh yea, and the stem that came on the bike stripped out and held bars like a grandma's grip so I had to drop 70 bucks on a new one.  The bike was so bad I tried returning it to Flatlandfuel right away but they wouldn't take it back.  I'd recommend just staying away from KHE bikes all together from my experience since this ~700 dollar bike didn't hold up as good as my 300 dollar signal that I had for years and dropped in salt water multiple times.  "Rode some hang fives on a bulk head at a bay home."  :D  Oh and if you want to peel off those stickers to reveal the pretty flat black paint, you can't.  They are like painted on decals.  I want to powder coat the frame and a few accessories either hot pink or shiny red with red flake.  I might just wait till I try building a frame though.

Location: Wisconsin, USA
Riding since: Got into cycling in 2008, just getting into flatland now
Bike: Surly Cross Check. I don't have a functioning BMX bike at the moment.

Hi, I'm Valerie. Bikes are a pretty huge part of my life, I fix them for a living, ride to work almost every day of the year, and do some road riding and mountain biking. I've always thought flatland looked fun, but after seeing Rad, I decided I need to give it a try. I've found some of the parts to make a bike, and will probably get the rest fairly soon. I'm super stoked to give it a try once I'm able.

Just like my riding was for the past 6-8 months! Can't remember exactly how long I was off the bike, but decided to get back in the game yesterday.

Quick vid of some links I pulled on day one of 'rehab':

Hey Chap,


Lately minimum of 3 sets a day as summer is over and the normal cycle trade is slowing down, we build all the wheels for all the local bike shops, we hold every colour of ever butt in ever size of spoke, each wheel is numbered and all sizes are written down to speed up a build when we get the same wheel/set next time.


Around 27 minutes laced/tensioned and true onto a bike or into a box but thats taken me 15/16 years of  appearance.


I teach people to build wheels in my spare time so if anyone ever whats to learn hit me up 👍💪

Just on the rim under the rim tape, small engraver or a scribe.


I also have Addict Built Wheel stickers for the big beefy trials wheels.


Thanks,

I have been here under my friend John's account. He was gracious enough to share it with me as I tried to join global-flat for years. (sirentity1973)...


I now have my own account and won't be cluttering up his anymore. This is badass.

Been riding flatland since 1985. Street since '87-'88 and Ramp since I built my first quarterpipe. But that's irrelevant here.


I don't think I've ever looked forward to editing a profile as much as this one. Been a long wait.
