Hi everyone, just a quick intro.

Name: Keith.

Location: NSW Australia.

Age: another 44 year old here, been riding since 84 but took up Flatland around 86. Just getting back into it (again) after the local BMX track was recently fixed up.

Bikes: First decent bike was a Hutch Pro Raider which was eventually turned into a freestyle bike by fitting a rotor and pegs, Hutch Windstyler, Haro Master (stolen :( ), Hutch Trickstar II, Currently riding an 88 Master bought from the US a few years ago. Have a 99 Zippo on the way to see what it's like, will likely go for something newer if I can find something suitable.

Keith ;)

Hey everyone, I'm Adam. Been riding park/street but getting more into flatland as parks/spots become scarce/too far away. I currently ride a fully loaded set up (2 brakes, 4 pegs, ect)

hoping to build a dedicated flat bike soon and learn more.

If you were at texas round up this year, i was in the beginner category with the red/black/blue bike haha

Hi guys/gals, i'm new to bmx and i haven't own one yet. I'm still surveying for flatland bikes as I have limited choices of bikes from where I stay. I travel a lot, mainly working offshore on ships. When i'm not working I workout in gym. Nice meeting you all.

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 90´s 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
..and i do neeed lots of beer, what is expected of me as a anständiger bavarian :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer:

Just a quick hello as I've just signed up. I've just started to getting into flatland after a friend inspired me to give it a go.
I've rode bmx since the late 1980's off and on, mainly street and trails. But lately I've caught the flatland bug, which will be interesting as my flat skills are practically at zero!

I've been riding on and off for almost 30 years...Took the past  x years off due to injuries and work and life, etc...Can't shake it from my system, so here I am again. Square one. I like square one though, it inevitably leads to circles.

Hello. Wanted to join up so I had somewhere decent to chat about flatland. I'm coming back into BMX after a long gap; I ended up spending the last 8 or so years DJing (it snowballed so fast!) But now I'm back to my original passion after moving on from music. Definitely made the right choice.
Catch you around the forum.

[/size][size=78%]Just wanted introduce myself to the community... I've been riding for 1 year now. I love flatland and take it very seriously (fun is still my priority though). I push myself to progress, even if it's just a small amount, every time I ride. I currently ride a custom 88 Pro Freestyle Tour that I built from the ground up including my wheels. I do plan to add an all new bike/setup to my arsenal this year. [/size]
