    I have been wanting to pull 3's SO bad since I started rideing twenties about 2 months ago. I could do 180's with ease but I just couldn't commit to the 3. Well.......I finally said WTF and went for it today. Almost stuck it the first try. Second try...I nailed it!
    I know to some of you 3's are no big deal, but when you are 40 and just starting to ride "kids" bikes, pull'n a 3 is a pretty big deal. (at least it is for me)

    PWNED...

    Congrats on the 3's. Maybe one of the most fun tricks to throw.

    cranberry - I big clap and holler for you - 360's are definitely burly tricks and one I would love to get after all these years of riding. The fact that you're 40 makes it a ton more rad - these youngsters are a bunch more flexible than us old farts. You've given me some motivation for learning some new stuff this year.

    Beast - nice 360 too - super stylish. Is that a mulch jump you are riding? Any more info on the Fix?

    Hey Beast... Hows the snow around the Fix? I wanna session that mulch jump and work on 360 tailwhips on my bmx. Any info would be appreciated. Maybe we can get some guys to come throw down. A little meet and greet, so to speak.

    Info on the fix: http://www.thefixbikes.com/

    Oh, and they (clearly) have some killer jumps out back - pump track, 'racer' line, the big roll-in required set, and a few medium lines.

    The video was filmed yesterday. At that time only the mulch jump and the miniature line was rideable. It likely snowed again last night, but only an inch or so. Looking at the weather, it'll probably be ready again by wed.

    Yeah, the kids crash and they bounce. I crash and I shatter like a china cabinet

    I think we need a 35 and Older section on Ridemonkey. Maybe call it the Oldschool Forum...
    I was just pondering some stuff like that today... Like I was reading the magazine that word "abubaca" first appeared at the table in lunch like my sophmore year in highschool. Thems was the days! Sucks knowing we were all riding at the time the pros started CREATING the tricks that are all now being recreated. I remember Hoffman's first 900...The Condor Air, AAAAALLLLLL the flatland moves.... Brands like Torker and Ozone... and:
    DAYGLO.
