    the book was one of the large coffee table hard cover books. I think the name was just BMX or Bicycle motocross. I've slept since then so kinda hard to remember. Joe kid really brought back memories....

    It's kinda crazy but I'm the youngest one in our crew at 19, the rest are 22 to mid 30's.

    I have a friend that is good at locating old books. Cool!

    Dave Clinton was my Answer rep for 10 years before I saw him in Joe Kid and realized who he was.

I am not a stupid man, I understand that DJ'ing is kind of an underground activity that appeals to younger people and they may not want it to turn into a commercialized mainstream activity over-run with posers and hacks. But, what I can say is that the guys I chatted with yesterday were friendly and enthusiastic about my presence there, and my willingness to learn the sport. I guess I expected to be potentially rejected, but I actually found that the DJ set in my city were actually more friendly than the MTB set. Geez, maybe I want it to stay underground myself, now that I think about it. Anyway, next time you see an older guy that seems like a poser at your local DJ park, just give him a chance, he may understand he is kind of out of place, he won't ruin your good time, and he is probably going to do more good for your sport than harm.

    I'm 42, and just picked up a p2 and headed for I-Street in SLC, utah. ran into a few people, Christine, Raeshell,Erin and some other guy. All super nice folks and all in their 30's. Erin rides for cannondale i think. I also ran into the ground when I taco'd both my rims on the p2, bent my left pedal/crank, and broke my sternum, 4 ribs, my clavicle, tore my shoulder and made my right leg look like a balloon. New rims are already on order...I upgraded.. To bad I can't upgrade my bones. See you in the air up there!

    WoW! Back from the grave thread this is. I'm still DJing and Freeriding, now 52 years young. Still have the P1 (powder coated white) and hit the Austin trails at least once a year. Have a pretty good scene in Dallas at Big Cedar trails with a couple of gnarley freeride/DH trails and an up and coming DJ park. Good stuff. ride on OG's

    Discovered bikes at 35 when I got into long distance XC exploring. It only took 2.5 years to learn that air time is a TON of fun. Spent most mornings before work this past summer at the local DJ park riding the slopestyle lines. It was typically only myself (38) and a 50 something Russian dude. I've had a big all-mtn bike, so I'm incredibly excited that I'm picking up a sweet Killswitch tomorrow! I can't imagine a better way to begin the new year than flying through the air on a cool sunny day at the bike park!

    46 here - turning 47 in a month. Just got a DJ bike and trying to figure it out on the local jumps. Basically starting from scratch. Some MTB experience over past two years. One year of DH. Loving it. Great excuse to stay in shape over the next 50 years!

    I started trail riding about a year ago on a hard tail 29er and really enjoyed it. Recently, I started to get bored of all the XC trails because my progression had started to plateau. I decided to try a new mtb discipline and bought a DJ bike to use at the local bike park. I'm 32 and thought I may be out of place so it was good to read this thread and see that there's some older guys doing the same.

    Keeping the thread alive. My P1 was stolen last week in Grand Prarrie, Tx. (Powder coat white, Argyle fork, red Ringle hubs, Por Charger wheels and Micro knobbie tires). The next day I scrounged enough parts out of my shop spares to build another complete DJ, cant be without one dont you know. Also have a Iron Horse Sunday downhill and a Santa Cruz Nomad All mountain as well as my trusty BMX. I will be 55 this year and still out at the trails three times a week throwing dirt and catching air

    34 here! I had been in to BMX in the 90's a bit, but we all switched to roller blades, BOOO! Shame on us. Anyways, got in to mountain biking, but with **** bikes from Walmart.

    I had researched what I wanted out of a bike, and went back and forth between gears and and SS, I almost bought a SS 29r but then found these DJ bikes, and fell in love with them.

    I just bought a Commencal Absolut Black DJ, should be fun. I'm glad to see there are other "older" guys doing this stuff, it makes me feel like I'm not a poser, or having some early midlife crisis!
