Im introducing myself for a second time because last time it was a year or two ago and I got caught up in work and didnt get a bike. I finally got a flat bike now and began the long process of learning.
I've ridden BMX my whole life but never learned one flatland trick,  until now.

Hello i am

Name: Andy Luzano
Age: 26
Location: San Diego CA
Riding since: 2000
Bike: master


I'm new to tricks. I practiced on a 2011 opsis (not mine) for a week and the question hit me: Can I improve on tricks or do tricks any easier with another flatland bike? I'm concerned with rider and bike balance and i mainly want to do spinning tricks like megaspin. I'm 5'2" tall at 155 pounds. Any suggestions for a complete bike to purchase, i'll be choosing from flatlandfuel's selection of complete bikes.

Input would be great from any physique riders, but i would really like to hear from shorter riders :)

As you can see from my age i'm prob one of the more older members here.  Started riding back in the mid 80's when we had the same bike for everything.  I rode a Hutch Trickstar back then and lived on that until i was about 22 when i stopped riding altogether.  Back then i was mostly into flat and entered a few opens around the UK.  last few years i have been collecting o/s bikes but now really want to get back into riding and see how much of the old magic is still there!
I have a few questions on buying a complete but i'll find the right section for them..  :mellow:

Welcome Terry!

One thing you will notice is that you are actually probably right in the average age range here. I mention that for one reason. I think it helps the confidence to know your not an outlier. Many of us are in that same age range. Your one of us!

Hi all!  Looks like a great community here!  I've been mountainbiking for 14 years but have always loved watching flatland so finally getting into it now!  I've been really really enjoying the last 6 months and I'm actually learning!  ^_^

Hello there, Well not long ago bought my kids there first BMX which happens to be a Radio Valac Black. My kids are showing a growning interest in Flatland than anything else and this site seemed the right direction.
Me myself I used to race I had a Mongoose Super goose 3 back in the day, But I could do a Cherry Picker. Any how My kids are getting to grips with the bike and so far my son can do a bunny hop (not very high) and my daughter is trying to do a Dork Wheelie.

After having a quick go on the bike myself have relised this may be a (expensive) beginners bike as it quite heavy and on the rear.
