Vital Signs

So, this is VitalBMX.com, BMX's next community website. And headed by Mark Losey nonetheless.

I think the content so far is really good, with features on Taj, Mirra, and the like. That's where Losey is good for the site. He has enough history to land some good interviews with industry leaders.

The design leaves a lot to be desired, however. It looks a lot like a late-90s portal site. That probably has a lot to do with the fact that the site is built on Joomla, a portal-esque content management system.

It's a nice attempt at a true BMX community model, but it still misses the mark. Just wrenching it features like bike-checks into the out-dated community portal model won't be enough.

Despite my criticism, I applaud Losey's intentions, and I'll concede that VitalBMX.com is the best thing we've got yet.
