Re: Whats up Nation? How old are you,what are you riding and what tricks..

I'm 27 I ride a boss and a cyclecraft  mostly my cyclecraft.  Don't really do many tricks just some curb hops, wheelies, and have been trying to perfect my Manuals. Hope to start racing next spring.  My Buddie recently got back into it and wants a partner in crime.  It will be my first time racing but I always wanted to since I was a kid.

Cool thread by the way

I'm 31, Sunday Wave C, super beginner.  I finally figured out the mechanics of a bunnyhop, and I'm hoping to maybe start learning how to ride transitions so I can play around in parks.

Cool bikes you guys have. I've found that once you build up a basic balance and confidence things get easier. It also seems you learn how to fall or recover to keep from falling when you mess up.

Workin on a decade now. People in the trick section on the forums said it's not as hard as evryone makes it out to be. Just break it down in sections. No big falls on this one yet. Most of my damage came from the firehydrant. Probably cause it was my first trick and it got ugly when spinning around the front of the bike at first.

Re: Whats up Nation? How old are you,what are you riding and what tricks..

I'm 35 and ride my S&M Cam Wood V2 when I can go to the city.  Tricks are slowly coming back, but I have reverted to the bad form bunny hop after messing up my shoulder.  I love foot jams, but I approach them too fast, scary and fun except the ones where I went too fast and flip over.  Manuals are not my friend.  Either low and ugly or loof good to loop out.roll  I have a long way to go, but learing something new every week.  If not riding the Cam, I ride either mid school (S&M or T-1) or bikes from 1987.  I am trying to get all the bikes from my wishlist as a 10 year old.  Just a Haro shy and it will be complete.


Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

Do you have a basement you can ride in? I moved around some stuff in my basement and have a nice little riding area down there. I move a area rug over to the area where I work on the hard stuff(decade)  in case I fall.

I'm 44, learned all my tricks BITD on my `85 Pro Performer `86 Sport `87 RL20 and `87 RL20 II.
Current ride is my 2010 Subrosa which is for hitting the Skatepark. Can still do fakie rollbacks and 180's on the ramps. once I add a front brake I hope to relearn most of my flatland routine aswell.
