New Female Flatlander

Hello all! So after the Midwest BMX fest I decieded to get off my Arse and do something. So after watching some flatlanders I was in love! Now guess what I have my first flatland bike and I am trying tricks I am having trouble with the endo but working on it. I am thinking it should come easy but it doesn't. I have a blog that is showing my photos and telling why I started and such I just started riding tonight! So excited and hope I can meet new people to help me on here also!

Re: New Female Flatlander

Congrats and good luck!  A flatland bike is in my near future after watching one of our riders  do his thing a bunch of times, I'm always amazed @ the tricks he pulls.
As far as being a Woman in the sport, check our Sam Moodie who rides for us on Bulldog. She's not really a flat land rider, but does backflips and can out ride many guys. Here's a clip for inspiration http://m.youtube.com/watch?desktop_uri= … &gl=US


LOOKING FOR :
JW Pro stem,  Profile Pro  1-1/8" Black stems  ( in New to Very Good Condition!!!!!)
Standard Bykes 125R frame stickers & Standard 24" fork (99/2000 Era)
Profile Racing chain tensioners in DK Gold (mid school)
Primo Chad DeGroot grips

BMX was meant to be about riding (actually jumping or trying to do tricks) and having fun, I feel sad for you if you've forgotten that

Re: New Female Flatlander

good stuff, nothing better than flowing flatland. keep at it, it hurts and will frustrate the hell out of you but one day something will click and you will be stoked.

Re: New Female Flatlander

Thanks I hope to update my blog with new things weekly.  I am not real tall I am only 5'4 lol my hubs was taking my photos from our deck. I hope you all keep checking back on my blog to see how I am doing. I have more purple parts on the way and white Tech 77 brakes along with clear break pads. I have heard that they are going to be very grippy. I am going to keep working on what I am and hope that soon I will  be able to get in some fork glides I hope!

Re: New Female Flatlander

That Opsis looks great, standardsweetie.  Give the endos a little time, you'll pick it up quick.
