    I got a 2003 Hoffman Rhythm Pro, been a good bmx all these years. I've changed some parts on it like over the years, Primo tyres, Primo pedals, Demolition pegs, Fit grips, Demolition seat and Gusset sprocket/guard. I stopped riding about a year or so ago but gonna ride again this summer if we have a nice one! There's mint jump trails in an old sand quarry about two miles away, used to go the all the time when i was younger. I wouldn't mind a lighter frame though cause mine's a little heavy.

    Check this guy out, Ruben Alcantara:

    used to love bmxin until I went over a 5 inch pathetic excuse for a jump and landed on my face resulting in stitches on my lip and inside lol.

    Got a Powerlite bike, sort like this, looks abit shit but light as fuck, thats probably why I went over my handle bars:D

    i once watched a mate tackle triple camel humps at my local bmx track without brakes, it was one of the funniest things i've ever seen.

    poor cunt, i couldn't stop laughing it was like a black and white slap stick comedy speeded up, he lost control from the first jump, slammed onto the second losing control and hit the third like a puppet glued to a bike.

    he ended up with torn jeans and a hole in his leg pissing out blood with a chin covered in dirt.

    My S&M Sabbath Lite, back home in England gathering dust in the garage.
    This was the bike I used when I broke my ankle in 3 places, dislocated and rotated my foot backwards about 110 degrees. Seen a lot of battle, that's for sure.

    I've been thinking about getting another bike, as there's a fairly decent skatepark here in Nanjing and a lot of good spots, plus in Shanghai there's this:

    Got a Freeagent Hellcat that I try and ride ramps with, not really got properly into it tho, crashing hurts more than it used too. When I was a kid I had an ultraburner with Z-Rims (mag rims on spoke wheels that were supa-fly in the day).

    Used to have a backyard wooden quarter pipe too.

    Used to ride at Edge Lane Skatepark in Liverpool, and Three Sisters (Wigan) was one of the biggest race tracks in the day. They used to have nationals and the Kellogs tour there. Raced a few times but always preferred freestyle (not that I was any good or owt). Both bulldozed years ago...

    its all original apart from its got a few modern bits on it at the min while my mate finds all the bits he wants
    like the forks n bars are from his "sun"

    it dont ride exactly right atm cuz of the forks n bars, but when he gets the haro forks it will ride sick!

    other than that, its a MIIIINT bike
