Is it all the same?

May 18 2006 / Thursday

Not sure what this post is... sort of an editorial, sort of me thinking outloud...

Granny bike with basket no-handed pocket air.

I have to admit, I've been thinking about this a lot lately. I've developed quite a collection of bikes and other wheeled objects and its fun riding all of them. BMX is my first and strongest love by far, but I wonder if a smile from my beach cruiser is worth any less then one from my BMX?

BMX, Big Wheel, Skateboard, Beach Cruiser, Road Bike, MTB, and Moped.

Bikes are the best! I wish everyone rode a bike, and I wish the cars on the road were replaced with bikes. Unlike snowboarding, skateboarding, surfing, or any other "action sport" bikes have a very functional secondary side; transportation (well, they're all forms of transportation I guess, but if you had to travel across town bikes would be the way to go... er, unless you lived in a city that was flooded with great waves!). Although this really has nothing to do with BMX exactly, riding a bike to somewhere can save you money, creates no pollution, and keeps you in shape (well, hell, it is National Bike to Work Day on Friday).

You can click the engine off so this thing pedals like a bike. 110lbs over the hip... or a few feet under the hip that is.

Last summer I rode some 4-cross MTB and had a blast. Its just like BMX racing used to be when I was a kid. Super fast, fun jumps, big berms and laid back atmosphere. I don't know if I'll ever do it too much, but it sure was great. The track was a hell of a lot more interesting then any of the BMX tracks I've seen in years. You could ride the 4-cross track on a BMX bike, but it wasn't nearly as fun. The track was just too bumpy and you got going too fast for a suspension-less little wheeled bike. So here I was, riding a mountain bike and it felt maybe even more BMX then BMX racing did. That kind of got me thinking about how there's tons of different bikes just waiting for whatever kind of riding you might want to do. If what you're riding is bumpy, downhill and fast having suspension and bigger wheels makes sense. If what you're riding is smooth and Skatelite or if you're grinding up a handrail ride a BMX. If you're riding to the grocery store ride a bike with baskets, or get yourself a touring bike to go across the country and go camping... ect.

Disaster shoot out... cruiser vs. MTB!

BMX on the ramp is cool because I feel like I can be creative and learn new things... on my skateboard I just feel like I'm going to DIE!

There's a whole new world of BMX "style" mountain biking happening right now. They are starting to have their own magazines, and their whole entire own sub-culture of cycling. On first glance it seems pretty lame to me, as it looks like most of the guys are just doing old school BMX tricks on big wheeled bikes (though for sure, there are some guys pushing it). On another hand though, I wonder if the guys riding those bikes aren't just doing it because they feel alienated by the "BMX Scene". Or maybe they're afraid of the little bikes 'cause they look too small? I don't know.

When you do a Greg Hill tuck over the spine and look down at the coping you can't tell what bike you're on.

After thinking about it all for a while my thoughts just turn back to the idea that there are simply different bikes for different applications. Sort of like how you use a different paint brush depending on what you're going to paint, you know, you use the one that fits. Looking at it that way I think its all kind of the same. BMX is about way more then just the bike and if its fun and you're enjoying it maybe it doesn't matter if its a BMX, a MTB or a skateboard?

Clearly the wrong tool for the job...

Also, and maybe more importantly, if I wear spandex under my clothes will anyone know about it?
Thanks Sandy Carson for the photos...

  1. Today, lengthen penis enlargement pills are one of the most demanded by men to increase the size of it, but not alone. There are other non-surgical options to lengthen the penis very effective too, as extenders to lengthen the penis or exercise programs. Each system to lengthen the penis has its own characteristics, pros and cons, depending on the individual.

  5. What do you think about adding some more images? I don’t want to offend anyone, content is really nice. But according to the scientists people acquire info much more effective if there are certain useful images.
