Sellers that say, "Don't worry I've been trading old school BMX for years everyone in the scene knows me I can get anything you need.." then they ship an expensive freshly painted vintage frame with no bubble, packing material or tracking number.  WTF.  roll

I don't know how many idiot teenagers have crashed into me because they lost control due to lack of brakes. Then you ask them why they don't have any brakes and you get some BS like;" I ride better without them",  or "my friend he's like, pretty much a pro, said that only losers use brakes"

i hate that too i feel safe with brakes and people at the skate park bash me because of that

I just can't find enough adjectives to describe this repugnant of a creation.

In contrast, the most beautiful bar ever made was the Haro Kneesaver. Just imagine how sexy and innovative that thing is. The CW bars is poop, just absolute POOP in comparison.

Cw bars are dope I have them on my daily rider, Tall bars with an os look:cool:

1: the conformity. I wouldnt care if everyone else wanted to dress up all matchy matchy as long as they didnt hate on my baggy cargo's and lepard print knee pads.

2: kids who dont appreciate sk8 parks. We didnt have those when I was a kid.

3: haters of full face helmets. I got bills to pay. Not smashing my face helps me do that.

Re: BMX Pet Peeve's and things that just bug you about BMX.

oh where to start. scores..... and all the pitfalls associated with trying to obtain them.
the greed sometimes associated with this hobby.
small example. a "bmx buddy" calls, says hey, did you see the 2 zoot scoots on CL, might buy them, should be able to make a buck. but the drive out to get them is sooo far.
i replied that there were 2 dyno scoots on the local CL. cheap. and that i was going to buy them for my kids. also explained that the newer style razor scoots with the little wheels were a source for many crashes with my 5yr old and that i felt the bigger tires on the old school scoots would help end alot of the spills.
i work alot, usually 7 days, so i did not call right away on the scooters. my bad, because less than 48 hours later
"my bmx buddy" sends a pics of the dyno scooters and asks if i still want them. my relply was YES. and i promptly call him. after a min or two of chit chat he says well i need to make some money on these sooo....... needless to say, i did not buy them. and this is part of the reason i have backed way down on this hobby.

welcome to the internet.  publicizing any sales is going to increase your competition.  you learned that the hard way.
