I am still here.  I just changed my User Display name back to letsgo.  I changed it to Paul 'letsgo' Hahn but people always tried to IM me at that name and not the true user name on the account letsgo.

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

Coming off a looong hiatus. 20 years or so. I have dabbled here and there. but really wanting to get into a steady riding regimen. Seeing all the other old timers coming back has motivated me!

I just picked up A DK Opsis from FF.

next job is to source a nice set of wheels and bars

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.

Current bike.

Seems like a upward rise in new riders, looking good.
All things in life are temporary. If going well...enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong donít worry, they can't last long either.

I'm chris I'm 37 and a clown , I just picked up a 87 gt pro freestyle tour project that i'm going to restore. I plan on learning some tricks to use in the parades I do. 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.
