I tell a lie - I did ride from work and then to work the next day when my car was at the shop last June and rode for 10mins in the yard at work after setting up some pallets with the fork lol

Just got back from a ride then. Couldn't ride flat for shit but the 2 wheel stuff still works

I had JCPCs for a while (until I realised they were putting holes in the soles of all my shoes, even with half of the non-essential pins removed) and they seemed pretty big. Bigger than my sealed JCs IIRC, and definitely a lot bigger than the Colony plastics I have on now

To whom it may concern,

I am a proud resident of Methville and an avid BMX enthusiast. I have noticed an increase in the amount of concrete skate & BMX facilities in the area. I suspect that a lot of the facilities provided don't see a lot of crucial input from the two largest demographics (youth and long-time enthusiasts) prior to construction. I have heard that a new facility is to be provided in Methberb and as a member of the latter group I would like to offer some constructive criticism whilst it is timely - The lack of traction of the finished surface found in the facilities provided thus far. For BMX riders the surface is potentially dangerously slipperly and we find we cannot use it to it's full potential. We find we have to forego performing certain techniques due to this extremely slick concrete. While super smooth concrete is often preferred as it allows higher speeds of travel, there has to also be enough traction for safety and we implore that this important aspect be taken into account when choosing a surface finish (or lack thereof) and with this in mind humbly request that this issue be stressed to the personnel involved in construction of the facility as well as the local government department responsible for these facilities.

P.S. I'm going to light this doobie up and set up the car jump if you guys wanna come over with some beers

I was half expecting the pump track to lead to a crash, as it was the first clip, had no music and looked potentially slippery as fuck

I expected it might not centre properly on the front as you normally have to tension the spring on the side with the housing a bit more to compensate for it's stiffness

I'm worried that the Springfield spring doesn't cope well with the extra friction of dual cables though. Were you having trouble getting your dual cable rear Springfield setup pushing the arms away from the rim far enough?

New York, New York!
New York's thataway, man!

How do Springfields fare as a) Front brakes and b) Gyro brakes? Do they centre properly (or even work in the first place) as fronties, and is the spring strong enough for the extra friction of a detangler setup?
