My name is Cesar Calderon,  35 yrs old,  from Angleton, TX (about 30min south of Houston)  I ride a Ares Garuda and have been riding Flat for about  15yrs.  I recently attended the Lousiana Jam, and have some pics.  When I tried to upload them, they wouldn't come out.  Any tips?  I want everyone to know what went down in Lousiana.  please give me some advice.  Peace Out Flatlanders around the world.

Hi, I'm Brian - I live in Colorado USA -- haven't rode in a long time. 
I'm 30+ and looking for advice on where to start again in terms of a bike.  I don't have a lot to spend and was hoping for some suggestions on a complete bike I could purchase so I could start riding again immediately.  Any/all input is welcome.
thanks

HELLO
  im othervoicez from florida USA.
been riding  for awhile have taken a few breaks here and there but ive been riding
quite a bit in the last few years.

i used to ride freestyle but ive turned more towards flat these days
i recently got a KHE lagger frame i plan on building up kinda heavy frame
but i think it will be ok for a bit. ive been riding some of my old school stuff
and its ok for a trick or two but it just does not hold up

hope to meet some cool riders and learn some new things
     im also looking to learn some things about min offset forks and stems
         thanks

Hey everyone. My name is Patrick and I've been riding for over 20 years now, found this place today and decided I needed to get back into flatland. 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.

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

my bike is a bully street bike - but im looking to convert it to flatland use
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...
but im exited to learn all the good stuff.

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.
im not looking to drop a whole bank roll in this bike,
I just want to ride flat for fun.
Old dudes can still rip
