I don't have any extra flatland frames because I gave them all away.  If someone doesn't have the cash and wants to ride flat, well here ya go.  I've given soo many frames and parts to people.  I think it's more worth a guy being able to keep riding or start riding flat than making a buck.  Some of the stuff I gave away was almost life changing if you know what I mean.  You got a kid trying to ride a freakin thrashed Haro from Oshmans, to a Hoffman ep with a dumpload of extra parts for freakin free!  He told me later that he learned alot of tricks since he got the Hoffman frame.  That made me feel like I accomplished something.  I will continue to do that to this day.

that's exactlly how i feel when i give stuff away!!!  sometimes it hurts when i give something to someone and then they quit and give it away or sell it.  it almost makes me feel as though i failed, but hey, it's not for everyone i guess.  props to stubleduck43!!!

I just hooked up an old childhood buddy with almost a whole bike.  I mean, I love him as a brother and just recently got back in contact with him.  He saw that I picked up flatland again at all he could afford was a Walgoose.  I said "F that!"  So I hooked him up with a Fly Micromachine with various parts from me and others.  The frame and fork was from Jeremy Jones.  Everything else was from me and friends (such as Gensanity).  I think that's the way it should be.  Help your brothers out, it will all come back to you.  If it doesn't, at least you made a difference in your brothers flatland life.

i've been hookin needy kids up lately.  not so much w/bmx bikes, but just kids who have no means to ride any bike at all.  i'll take whatever road/mtn or bmx i can find , fix it to make it safe and give it to those who really need it.  i figure if i can get a few more kids into riding any type of bike, then maybe they won't turn to gangs or drugs because they were limited to the local hood or street corner.
