Crashing hurts too much for me to want to risk doing it regularly.

Jeep parts? That's just a Jeep.

Opinion: What Are Your Worst Bike Habits?
@lancet-muffler: Ah, but there's a reward there. I once got towed for about 2 miles by a guy on one who was wearing headphones and didn't notice. It was windy, so I guess that made it easier for me to hide. I grabbed on to a strap hanging from a satchel attached to his luggage bag rack thing. It was a coastal cycle path which meant very few starts and stops. However, he must have noticed his battery took a particular beating that day.

A BMXer who wears a helmet is a win as far as the UCI are concerned...

It's interesting to see what those who ride both choose each time.

Skip to the men at the end. It's insane.

@DGWW: All bikes have front forks. No one is stopping mountain bikers running rigid forks if they want to. But suspension is no advantage. 20 years ago, ProForx was offering a 100$ bonus to any BMXer who won a pro race with their forks, so loads of pros rode them. They were all welded to be rigid. This is not just about wheelsize though. I have both a 24" NS Holy dirt jump bike and a 24" GT Pro BMX cruiser. the chainstays on the GT are much longer, so I get far more pump on a pump track. The DJ on the other hand is really hard to keep on the ground. Also note that the BMX race bikes are incredibly stiff - as in painfully stiff, whereas the DJ bikes will be far more forgiving. And far more forgiving means slower.

@SnowshoeRider4Life: It was clear as day on the live stream. I just noticed SIZ's comment. Yes, I have a BMX background.
