 Please SHUT UP. That's a ridiculous thing to say. People don't have to wear helmets. Get over it.

 Sam Pilgrim did a POV tour of a bunch of spots a few weeks back. It looks like the best place for street spots to ride in a small area.

 That video has NOTHING to do with BMX.

 @oevets4130: BMX is a style of riding, not a bike. And there have been 26" wheel BMX bikes, and even suspension since the 70's. It's just marketing that's tricked you into thinking this is a separate activity in order to sell you more expensive bikes.

 I know there are some idiots here shouting about how people shouldn't have to wear helmets. The fact of the matter though is that they should. Helmets can save your life. Head injuries suck and nobody wants to have to deal with a brain injury or any sort of paralysis caused by a head injury.

There are still plenty of pro-riders (not as bad as BMX of course and thankfully it seems to be confined to street) who think it's ok to not wear a helmet so it really is unto the bike industry to push for change here. Stop posting videos of people riding without helmets. Stop sponsoring riders who choose to ride without helmets.

If everyone leads by example and everyone wears a helmet then riding is safer for everyone. This isn't about sanitising the sport but if the most exciting element of your riding is not wearing a helmet then you need to man up and try some bigger trails and tricks.

 Seems like there needs to be name when BMX street riding is being done on a slightly bigger bike like this vid. I would propose this style of riding/video be called MTBMX.
