In the history of BMX, nobody has ever been paid hourly to film clips.

The dream! Unfortunately, very few guys are able to make even that happen these days.

Reply to Sponsorship: Bikes or Cash? 5/14/2018 8:04 PM

Not entirely true. Guys like Enarson, Kerley, Nyquist, Martin, Peraza, Dhers, etc all make a livable wage from sponsors alone. Contest winnings are really just bonuses. Aaron and Terry finance their businesses with money they make / made in BMX, not ... more »

Everyone should find a way to go to FISE in Montpellier once. It's seriously something every BMX rider needs to experience.

Such a bummer. Hope everyone stays safe! There are definitely plenty of amazing spots on The Big Island...

Reply to RIDE movie 5/1/2018 2:21 PM

A buddy of mine went to the premiere in SoCal the other night (I couldn't go due to being out of the country) and said it was surprisingly good. Definitely has some corny aspects - it kind of has to - but got his thumbs up. John is a good guy with a ... more »

Reply to New Nowear stem! 5/1/2018 1:18 PM

Gotta say, though - as much as I love that this stuff exists, I don't love the idea of giving unestablished riders signature products. I'm sure this kid kills it, but I feel like signature products should be reserved for the world's top guys. I think ... more »

Agree with this 100%. None of it is for me, but I love the fact that it exists!

Current plan is 8pm PST on vansbmxprocup.com, but we're also dealing with a lot of rain this morning...

Reply to What ever happened to Felt BMX bikes? 3/31/2018 11:42 AM

The only reason this is fresh in my brain is because I was recently at the Olympic Training Center with the USA Freestyle Team and their track team is sponsored Felt. The name hadn't crossed my mind in years! It's honestly a shame - Felt did a lot of ... more »

Reply to What ever happened to Felt BMX bikes? 3/31/2018 9:46 AM

Definitely not true - they have a huge presence in road cycling. If I recall, their BMX bikes are (or were) only distributed in Germany? I may be incorrect, but I know a portion of the company is owned by their German distributor (Sport Import) and they ... more »

Reply to Callum Bibby kicked off Mafia 3/30/2018 8:40 AM

I missed most of this so my opinion is solely based on my understanding of the situation (which may or may not be the whole story), but kicking him off the team for having the passion to stand up for the brand seems like a pretty big miss. I understand ... more »

Nose manuals.

Legitimately have no clue or insider info here. The three guesses I'd throw out there are Subrosa, GT, or WeThePeople, but could be anyone! Regardless, Mark kills it. I'm a fan.

I believe Devon Smillie does.

Reply to Is there a mobile app to use for this forum? 3/1/2018 3:49 PM

We built out the mobile forum on the site as opposed to an app. Apps are difficult because you can't link into them, so for us (keep in mind, we're a very small crew) it makes a lot more sense to do it this way.
