Dude, when you hear someone out back late at night turn on some lights before you start shooting. It might be me on my black Cannondale just sneaking away from work for some BMX action.

The pump track is probably the nicest thing I could do.

They go well with the pit I dig in the yard to cook mass quantities of meat.

I've met Big Jonny. He came to the state Cross championship to watch his friend Snake destroy the entire field.

I've riden the GF hardtail and a FS model called a leviatan or something like that.

Fantastic. I generally ride an XL mountain bike and the bigger wheels made me feel like I was more down between the tires. One can run lower tire pressure w/o pinching and get huge traction...lower like 22 psi. I raced with a guy who had one and he could ride much faster on technical climbs because of the traction.

I'm currently riding a Yeti Kokopelli and it's a great bike...but I wish I had bought a 29er.

They work, but you got a limited tire selection...
Great if your racing and want to go faster, but for the average Joe it's not going to be noticed.

I think the utility is there but I agree, I forgot to mention limited tiars on the market.

The fix geared bike will work your ass off! You should see how the local kids stop, they pitch em sideways then balance until the light changes.

I could see riding one a few times a week would be very beneficial to the riding abilities...
