I got a new Coaster brake hub yesterday.  Today I built it up and had to build a bike just to fit the proper gearing.  I didn't get the hand brakes on but it was sunny and I thought I'd take it for a test.  Stoked!

I got busy and didn't do a throwback on thursday. Throwback Sunday doesn't really have a nice ring to it, but this pic is awesome! Old guy shredding! From page 11 on 9-18-14.

Re: the old guys who still want to ride thread!

Hey - just curious- are you guys rolling video and then taking stills out to post as photos?

If so, how? Go pro or?  cell phone?  My cell phone seems to be pretty lame at using that way.

Some of the stills I posted were from old VHS tapes. I try to post videos when I ride now with my Iphone. I mainly post on instagram (johnu773) since I don't feel my riding is worthy of a youtube audience. Even I get bored of my tricks after doing/watching them... lol

iPhone. Screen grab.

I rarely have someone to shoot me so I have a tiny tripod that I use.

Re: the old guys who still want to ride thread!

Thanks! 

As for worthy of a youtube audience. Who would have thought videos of people unpacking everyday products would have been such a hit?

The more old guy BMX on there the better!   cool

Cool man!

Hey, did you know that the new Gopro’s have a feature where it follows you as you move? I think I heard that somewhere.

Yeah, a friend has a camera that does that. You have a sensor on you and the camera swivels on a tri pod.
