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!

Hi, I'm Nathan from Canberra, Australia. I'm 32, very keen to get back into riding again after about 7 years. Wish I didn't stop! Just resurrecting my micro machine now. Want to try and ride as much as I can again, it's encouraging to see there are quite a few 30+ year-old people on here. Gives me some hope that I'm still not to old!
Cheers! :crash:

I'm 41 and still ride, and will always ride.

41 too, I second that Paul.... I might not get to ride everyday, but it's always going to be there!
More off than on, but still loving it! Flatland until you can't!

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.

Cheers Paul... 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.

Nickname: Petr
Age: 29
Location: Tilburg, The Netherlands
Riding since: 1997 - 2000. Just started riding flat again (may 2011).
Bike: Dragonfly Uzi frame (2005), St. Martin Mikado fork, some bits and pieces...

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!

Petr.
