Ride like a man

Bmx video from 1990


Game of BIKE

This video was great - I hated it when they did serious tricks, but most of it was koooool.


Cheesy BMX video of American in France

This is almost as cheesy as a John Hick's video that always seem to be some sort of pseudo music video with a lil slo mo BMX chucked in there.

This video is so lame and B Grade, Vimeo amateur cinematographer. Brain does some pretty impressive tricks at the end, I especially enjoyed watching him eat shit on that gap to rail, it was impressive.

On pigeon toed rydaz

This is essentially a dead give away that your riding is going to look shit. But then again, BMX doesn't have a rulebook and anything can be challenged. Like the fact that goofy riding is generally shit and then Mike Aitken is goofy and many considered him the most stylish rider ever (I really think Chase took the torch from him around the time he took his brakes off so like 2008ish).

Here we have two examples - that Tanner Easterla dude (srsly get a new fucking name m8) who sucks and proves that putting your feet on the pedals in a funny way means that no matter how 'good' the tricks you do are, you still suck. Proof below.



On the contrary we have the rule breaker, Dean absolutely fucking rips it. He shows a sophisticated and mature understanding of BMX and keeps things energised and fun when he's cranking at a quarter and does a little pedal wheelie. This video below has a horrible song so turn your speakers off.




Here is another example of some bad boy shit - his riding style and his dedicated relationship with the bar spin overtly references Nyquist who is another overlooked goofy style icon.

No one actually goes upside down these days

possibly related to global warming. Also adam yeah i regret watching the world cup final was fairly boring.

PR Stuff

I like and respect a lot of "street" riding stuff and some might consider myself as more of a street-orientated rider but a lot of "street" shit these days is so boring and repetitive. To mix things up here are some great PR moments

Kyle Baldock
I get so stoked every time I watch this run from the contest where he blew up on to the scene and won the 2011 first dew tour stop with insane runs, and threw shit down so consistently and perfectly in front of everyone, his brother tragically passed away only days before apparently RIP. Also jamie it was a 900.



Recent Dew Tour
I really loved the course for this contest. Such a throwback to the X-games courses and BS contest courses of the late 90s where dudes like Mirra, Kenan Harkin, Mike Laird and Nyquist dominated. Good to see a huge area with spread out ramps. The moment in the first vid where Nyquist does a truckdriver, a 540 barspin on the quarter, then a flip barspin was genuinely heart warming. Negative comment: Harry Main and everyone else doing "flair" drop-ins... just stop. If you're gonna actually huck a real back flip drop-in then fine but otherwise it's better just to drop in normally.



So lame

LOL. This is bad in so many ways. He is a good rider though.
