    Anyway here is something bike related, from someone that bikes actually, in real life,
    currently.What is it with you dudes in Canada and Hashtagg bars? :p

    Barton's just in green rather than blue.

    Please link me to biking videos where nigger gangster rap goes with the riding. I've seen
    countless bmx segments ruined by that shit.That kind of depends on the actual type of rap
    you're talking about...

    Can do, although you dudes probably won't understand a word of it :p Pretty strong Yorkshire
    accent/dialect, so we might have to get a translated version up at some point as well...

    To be fair, hooking on stuff that low is super hard. For hooks you need your body weight to
    keep moving up and forward, and on lower stuff it's easier to find your body weight is dropping
    back down fr...

    Seeing his progression from 2014 to now is wild. I filmed with him again at Shipley the day
    this went up online, and the stuff he was doing there was mind-blowing. There was a gap up to
    front he did t...

    This was a hint to people to film more, ESPECIALLY when it's of awesome riders i would
    personally blow. Mark you're professional so can't release trash I know, just sayingI don't
    carry a phone with me...

    Looks like a fun bike to play around on! Just as a small thing with your stem, with the amount
    of stackers (around 30mm worth?) you're running under it you could run a 150x35 stem with no
    spacers and ...

    I think that's probably more to do with a lack of trials background for those riders than
    anything? I totally get what you mean about reach vs. leverage, I was just pointing out that
    when you've got a...

Saw your grip post on uk. I had the half nelson race face grips they are ok but open end.
The new Gwin grips are super thin and closed end with alloy cap covered in plastic, single collar. I would recommend these minus the bullshit pricing. 45 CAD

I have used those long thin grips from toyo about 10 years ago only slide on rubber grip i would use.

I now use racquet ball tape but you might rip this stuff with all your bmx shenanigans. I have small hands so only use thin grips.

Something in common, interesting
