You were a moderator on bmx-forum? did you have a different username?

Nostalgia sent me back to BG this week. I was JWNolte or mack_turtle on BMX-Forum. I checked that recently and most of it was still there, but a ghost town. Some of my old posts on sidewallthorn.blogspot.com were inspired by that.

Where do all the whippersnappers go to talk shit about bikes now? I had a few "bikeguide live" conversations lately with an old BG member that I know and realized that all the old online bmx haunts are now dead. Are they all facesnapping and instabooking each other about drilling holes in their rims to save weight? I feel old.

^ I was the one who initially lobbied for you for moderator there. We already had enough mods who wrote something that was stickied and then went on to spend their time posting photos of their bikes, you on the other hand spent all your time in the trenches of vague help-me-fix-my-bike threads that would give even the most patient people headaches

I remeber the B-I-K-E board which was pretty fun back when digital cameras first came out. It was something fun to do.

I am a member since 2006.

First time back on in years.  Happy to say I still keep up with some BG'ers in real life.  Been here since February 2003, over 15 years.  Crazy to even think about.  Still riding bikes a few times a week and I'm actually better now at 35 than I was back then. I went to Trestle bike park yesterday and railed berms, did some drops, ramped some jawns, and can actually, kind of, if you squint, whip the rear end of my bike a little.  Still no kids.  Living the dream.

Sup. I even work in a bikeshop now where half the staff are BMXers and the owner is 100% mid school BMX.  Still haven't ridden properly in a few years.

Man, I only check this site like once or twice a month now since it is so inactive. I used to stare at my monitor for hours just cruising this site because it was basically a glorified chat room.

The Google Ad-Sense raid killed damn near half the frequent posters and then the switch from VBulliten to this new forum software killed half of the remaining users. That and social media is taking the world by storm, but even as a younger dude, I still enjoy the forum aspect where it is a smaller knit community so you can actually get to know some of the people rather than a site like Reddit where you're lucky to see the same person twice.

Even when I wasn't riding, this was my most frequented site because we could be raw and unfiltered. I remember trying to fit in as like a 14 year old among adults and it rarely worked out but I feel like in a weird way it shaped me up into a cooler person to be around. RIP BG.

13 years. Not logged in for 3. Might be back now though...

Stopped using the forum because life got busy.
Had two jobs, met a girl, lost my dad, rehomed his dog, built a house, left the bike trade, got married, manage a bottle shop now, still ride a lot, have a kid on the way, pretty much shoot zero photos anymore, film a lot, drink all the beer. Any questions?
