The new(ish) Odyssey Grandstand PCs are really wide and decently thin. The bushings are a little finicky for preload but once you get them adjusted right they're smooth with no wobble. I've had mine for a bit and like them.
The Grandstands are enormous, as in I actually thought they were too big. I put them on my mountain bike and went to Eclat pedals for the bmx.

After a solid 3 year hiatus I started again, then pulled my back really bad and havenít in months. Trying to start up again here soon though.

If you have a car then hopefully you can head down to Tampa on the weekends or something, Tampa has plenty of riders and stuff to ride.

This. More and more parks are becoming bmx friendly, and spot does really well on its bikes only days.

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.

Regards,
Carlos The Jackal

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 would personally say Hi, hello or Dear Sir/XXX instead of hey.

Good idea though. Around my parts they use course concrete that almost feel like gravel when you hit it sometimes. I would imagine that they could somehow roughen up the surface to make it better even though they use super fine concrete when building it.
