    I got a chance to ride with an old highschool friend today. It is amazing what he can do on a bike. The pictures speak for themselves.

    That guy is awesome! I've seen him out there a couple of times and he always rips it up. I think he said he was a AA pro bmxer? He went for 34 footer and almost made it.

    Yeah, make sure you wear a helmet so you don't lose your teeth. Huh??? Don't waste your time being a helmet cop. It just annoys people and that dude rides a 20 so he won't be visiting this site anyway.

    Mad props to that guy. I was very curious about his leg, but now i got my answer. At first i was thinking no way. No come on people Helmet is a Helmet. We dont need helmet police its personal choice, like smoking. Now come on, last nite i went down 30 wooden stairs.... Does that mean i need a FF for my biking video? Don't get me wrong, on some intense stuff, i will wear a helmet. But for very little things, must you?

    First off, what the guy does with a bike is amazing. The fact that as an amputee he can do it makes his feat that much more amazing. The helmet issue though is one of just being stupid. Yes, it's a choice much like smoking. Much like smoking, not wearing a helmet is just plain stupid, and sets a bad example.

    Just my opinion, and you certainly have the right to disagree.

    that guy is amazing. You need to tell him how impressed we all were.

    I see not wearing a helmet as like not wearing a seat belt, a lot of people do it, especially just for a "little ride around town," but I'm not going to be injured for something dumb like not fastening a little piece of cloth around my waist or putting on my helmet

    Mad props to that guy. No need to hate on the 20" culture. That's just the way they do things- eventually a crash will make him a good example of why to wear a helmet

    That dude rips it up! I didn't even notice that he didn't have a leg! A buddy of mine lost an eye a few years back, but his riding skills were ten times better after it happened! It's crazy. He now races DH and does pretty good for his class.

    OK,

    Yea, I agree no helmet is stupid. My personal philosophy is if it is worth wearing a helmet then it may as well be a full-face. I have been in a few situations when my fullface saved the day.

    I always tell my buddies to wear helmets. A couple days before when Tanner was going for the large hip jump I told him to borrow someones lid. He replied "I don't wear those things" He stuck the jump on his first attempt and on the second broke the BB sprindle and cut open his leg.

    I was actually talking to Pat about falling. He said during the first 6 years he was riding he would fall and get injured all the time. Now with all of his riding experience he knows when to fall/how to fall. He stopped racing in highschool (he turned pro senior year). But he says that he has not been injured for years. Yes he has crashed, but not injured.

    He crashed once when I was riding with him, he was doing a big X-up off the step up, of course he was fine. Also when he crashed on the 34' ravine gap (yes 34' gap on 20") he said he went out the front and rolled away from it, quiet remarkable.

    Anyway, I agree it only takes 1 time not wearing a helmet. Thanks for ruining the thread with that picture.

    I like it. That's how we did it. Helmets were unheard of when I rode BMX outside of race day. That said, I wouldn't ride without one today, but I appreciate those who don't give a sh1t!

    it's lame when people feel the need to push their ideas...ideals...and opinions on people...wear your helmet if you want...but people can make their own decisions (unless they're your OWN children)...and as far as setting a good example...well, if you want to be a role model...join the boy scouts or something... but the majority of us don't get on our bike and ride around just so that little kids will look up to us...that's what their OWN parents are supposed to be for...

    you should wear your helmet around all day everyday...cuz someday when you're crossing the street you might get hit by a bus...and it probably wouldn't even be when you're on your bike...

    and anyways, if you still feel the need to preach...stop...it's pretty much like beating a dead horse...the people you're trying to influence will never respond the way you want them to...

    I am in the process of building up an old 24" DoubleTrack from my Scream with a Ringle hub. I have been running Azonic Outlaws for a bit but the rear wheel has seen better days. The 24" will be great for DJing and overall durability for the hardtail.

    I also would not mind having a single crown fork such as a Z150/Z1 FR or a 6" 66RC. The narrow stanchions of the Sherman Slider leave something to be desired when it comes to turning radius and overall range of motion. But the Slider does offer excellent stiffness and very reasonable weight for a DC fork.

    But yea, the Morphine is way fun to ride on pretty much any terrain or trail.

    ...so when some kid screws himself up when he's riding without a helmet and a local riding spot gets closed down because of it, we're supposed to hold our peace then and not preach about wearing a helmet?

    Wearing a helmet reflects well on our sport to non-riders (we look more responsible), and, if nothing else, is just smart. I don't want to know the idiot who wins the Darwin Award for killing himself in an accident where a helmet would have saved his life. It's not difficult to wear a helmet, you just buckle it up. If you are a fashion whore who thinks you don't look cool in a helmet, find a new sport. But if you still choose not to ride with a helmet, it is all we can do to hope that you don't screw it up for everyone.

    you don't get it do you?? it doesn't do any good and it gets old hearing it and seeing your F'd up pics....those that don't wear helmets...will only learn the hard way...or not at all for even some of those...for the rest of us...please quit showing mangled face pics when it comes to this topic...because the only time I want to see it is when I have to deal with it personally...otherwise it just reminds me of what my face could look like even with my helmet on...kinda partial to the way it is now...and so the thoughts you put into my mind set back progression...as it may for others as well...

    do you really think you're gonna change WCH's mind even with your constant nagging...doubt it...

    not to mention you ruined this thread by being the helmet police when it started out as some sic pics of DJing...

    nicely put. while it does not really set back prgression as far as what lines and jumps ill try, it just gets so repetitive when ultimately its the riders choice and his alone. i made the mistake of not wearing one and SMT gave the link oh so graciously to us. i learned my lesson but not because a bunch of irratible guys sitting at their computers yelled and screamed and called me stupid. i wear a helmet because i want to and what others have to say on this subject has no affect on me when i pick up my bike and see my helmet sitting their on the ground

    I always tell my buddies to wear helmets. A couple days before when Tanner was going for the large hip jump I told him to borrow someones lid. He replied "I don't wear those things" He stuck the jump on his first attempt and on the second broke the BB sprindle and cut open his leg.

    I was actually talking to Pat about falling. He said during the first 6 years he was riding he would fall and get injured all the time. Now with all of his riding experience he knows when to fall/how to fall. He stopped racing in highschool (he turned pro senior year). But he says that he has not been injured for years. Yes he has crashed, but not injured.

    He crashed once when I was riding with him, he was doing a big X-up off the step up, of course he was fine. Also when he crashed on the 34' ravine gap (yes 34' gap on 20") he said he went out the front and rolled away from it, quiet remarkable.

    Anyway, I agree it only takes 1 time not wearing a helmet. Thanks for ruining the thread with that picture.

    you should wear your helmet around all day everyday...cuz someday when you're crossing the street you might get hit by a bus...and it probably wouldn't even be when you're on your bike...

    and anyways, if you still feel the need to preach...stop...it's pretty much like beating a dead horse...the people you're trying to influence will never respond the way you want them to...
    Well said.

    nice to see at least one of the strong willed non-helmet wearers are figuring it out...

    I probably won't ever have to deal with face manglement myself...I wear too much protection...but I live with someone who could stand to wear a little more...IMO...mostly cuz hospital bills get expensive with no health insurance...or dental for that matter...

    wasn't trying to be mean or pick you out...but the helmet police thing gets old...especially cuz I know MOST of them won't listen anyways...

    he would have had to be wearing a ff to do him any good. i doubt he would wear a ff just going around town with his neighbors doing tiny drops, just got unlucky

    you are so right.....it is just with age an experience do you realize how lucky you are.I use to just wear a squid lid and fell. I could taste the ground but was lucky. I went and bought a full face that afternoon. Experience makes you think about life more. When you are young you think nothing will happen on the easiest things. When i fell it was just a simple turn on an XC trail....one mistake for life isn't worth it....I didn't want to steal this thread....mad props on the pictures

    holy crapola

    first off that guy is crazy. technically hes doing a one footer the entire time. but im with SMT with the helmet situation. yes people get lucky and will crash and not get hurt without wearing a helmet. but thats not always the case. did anyone hear about the 12year old kid that was skateboarding off a curb( not even a foot tall or going fast) fell on his head without a helmet and got brain damage on half of his head. whats worth more a expensive hospital bill or a helmet.? u make the choice
    Looking for a 7.87 x 2.25mm shock, any brand any age that runs well!! cheap would be appreciated!

    Basically what it all comes down to is... SMT would eat it if he tried a DJ like that and therefore would ruin his face if he wasnt wearing a helmet. Whenn you reach a level of riding such as Pat jumps like these are the "norm". It is all relative. yes, sometimes you will get unlucky and crash... but that is what MTB is all about.



    Evan... Those are sick pics man. looking good brotha. Ill be back in town next week and we will head out there and do what we do. Heard u took willy on ysidro... how was that?? Anyways keep it real man and ill talkt ou soon.

    That BMXer has got some skills. You have to remember that a lot of BMX guys don't wear helmets...it has been that way for years. Look at any video, 90% of the jumpers don't wear helmets and none of the street riders ever wear helmets...

    Like I mentioned earlier, all the people who I have seen wreck themselves without helmets were good, confident, riders. Eventually, everyone's luck will run out, and when it does they will be eating all of their meals out of a tube for a while...oh well...everyone has choices...
