    Good job! RAD Roots (x-post from AZ)

    I transitioned into mountain biking from the BMX flatland freestyle scene. That sure helped out on techy AZ trails as I learned to ride with gears & suspension. Lately a couple of my old east coast riding buddies have been posting up some old pics, so I thought I'd put a blog post together from the 'good ol days'.

    It was fun going down memory lane, I hope you get a kick out of it.

    Thats an awesome story/album. I enjoyed reading and looking at all the pics. I grew up in the 80s/90s not to far from you (Harleysville/Lansdale area)

    I grew up outside of York and had a very similar adolescence. Fantastic story and pics!

    Thanks! About once a year I still dust off the old GT to see what I can still do, not a whole bunch but it works up a good sweat!

    Weaselnoze: I believe a few of the pics are from Lansdale, I recall going down there for a couple of street comps in the early 90's. I know I have some clips on video.

    I had no idea anyone actually did flatland stuff around here. Always just assumed it was a west coast thing haha
