Hey, I'm Robby from New Orleans LA
I now live in Mandeville LA (30 min. north of NOLA)
I'm 36 years old and have been riding on and off most of my life. Though I have been flatland only for the last 10 or so years. I mostly ride by myself though I think this has hendered my progression as well as some nagging tendonitis in both elbows and shoulders( motocycles suck to crash on!). Anyone in my part of the woods please don't hesatate to hit me up for some riding.

My name is Andre(Dre for short) and 17 years old.
I live in Brooklyn, New York
Just started riding flatland about 4 weeks ago. Got inspired to ride flatland by watching other riders on net. I want get good enough so i can get into competitions. I can do some FL tricks, still trying get my balance though.

If anyone knows any flatland spots in the NYC pm me.(practicing by myself gets kinda boring)
Forget getting a $100 spindle to save weight, get a $40 bottle of steroids and do some push-ups.

38 year old noob to flatland, currently looking to build my 1st bike (Ares Dita) Im a lifelong motocross woods rider who is looking for a hobby that will keep me in shape without having to load up the dirtbikes and head to the woods every time I want some cardio. I have a post in the wanted section looking for parts for my bike build, check it out if you have spare parts to sell.

As cool as it is to see the sport of Flatland alive and well it's also cool to see a lot of old farts like myself riding.

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.
It truly is a romance of many dimensions, isn't it?
