Hey, I'm Hubert, 17 and I'm from Poland. I started ridding flatland half year ago, but I have street bike.
In the near future I'm going to buy a new fork (0 offset). Actually, I can Hang 0/5/10 and I'm trying to do hang 10 seat grab now. What else... My English is sick! ;]

Alright guys, thought I'd introduce myself. I'm a 23 year old UK street rider, looking to build up a flatland bike to start riding! Hoping I can get some tips from the knowledge you guys have and also pick up some second hand parts to get me started!

Hi,

My name is Asa. I'm 40 years old and a New Yorker. I just got back into this even though I haven't rode in years. I am an old school freestyler who did tricks in the 80's and beginning 90's. Dennis McCoy was the man back than when we started moving over to rolling tricks which was the beginning of a new era in case you didn't know. :)

This is just an expensive hobby and I finally am able to buy any part there is out there so I just wanted to get started just for fun on a custom bike I am building right now.

My favorite riders are Moto Saski and Matthias Dandois in this new generation.

Hi I'm Ron.  Living in Salt Lake City.  I spend the majority of my time working, being a responsible adult (haha) but still ride as much as possible.  I haven't rode flat seriously for about 20 years, I'm currently on a Schwinn Automatic Trail.  But this weekend starts a new chapter moving from my 36 pound beast to a nice, modern 20some pound flat specific setup.  Will post up a bike check soon.  See ya round.

Yrs Riding: Just started again (it's been 20yrs)

Here's a post I made in the Beginners Support thread:

Hey guys! I'm new here, learned about this forum through one of my wife's friends in Texas. I'm 37 yrs old and just got back into riding. It's probably been twenty years since I last rode a BMX ! I just bought a new bike and already getting back into it. I'll be posting and asking questions around here as I get more familiar with the forums.

Here's a pic of me from last Sunday in the new bike:

Name: James
Age: 37
Location: USA
Riding since: 70's
Bike: Building up an Autum Blitz
 
Rode BMX on street/trail/etc from a young kid up through my 20's, raced a little BMX in my teens. In my 20ís got into mountain riding and faster road rides. I got into motorcylces pretty heavy and my cycling was recreational here and there for many years. About 6 years ago I decided to start commuting to work on a road bike (26 miles round trip) a couple days a week which sparked my cycling again.
 
I now have a few bikes based on the ride I'm doing...
Flat: Soon to be complete Autum Blitz
Daily/all-around/commuter: 2012 Cannondale Hooligan (my 2nd Hooli, a lot of fun)
BMX: 2008 MirraCo Icon Moto
Road: 2007 Carbon Synapse 
Commuting/touring: 2009 Gary Fisher Mendota
Mountain: 2008 Trek Fuel EX8
 
The Hooligan with the 20" wheels is the most fun, prob from my BMX days I love the smaller bikes and smaller wheels. 
 
I have been reading the forum a bit, trying to figure out a build as I didn't like the few complete bikes that I found. Decided to go through Flatlandfuel for my order, some great guys there, very cool and helpful.
 
Since my build is all planned out now I have been reading up on the "Trick of the month" pages to decide where to start... lot's of great info here that will keep me busy for a long time.
 
Thanks,
James
