Steve is the man,i used to talk to him all the time when i lived by him,now i talk to him everynow and then. I mean its just how he can move a bike that made me want to start. I used to love going to Section 8 and watching him ride.

Probably Josh Betley. His first edit was, at the time and probably still now, the absolute most amazing edit I've ever seen. So many creative tricks and everything he did looked really fun.

well iv been into bikes for a while. about 13 or 14 years ago, when i was about 10 or 11 my parents bought me an SE p.k. ripper from one of there friends. i skated alot during the time i owned it, but gradually moved toward riding. and when i started h.s. i moved to a bigger town that had a bunch of street riders and thought it was the greatest thing id seen. so i got rid of the pk ripper and got a freestyle bike now here i am.

well i used to be a playstation nerd back when i was 6-10 years old
and i had mat hoffman pro bmx game and i loved it
i would be the dude in the skeleton clothes (which hapenned to be seth kimbrough my favorite bmx rider)
and i decided i wanted to do all the insane shit i was doing on the game

so i rode my little huffy around doing jumps and riding street
at the time i had no idea i was riding street but i guess thats why im a street rider now

anyway i only started doing tricks when i got my first freestyle bike
my hoffman disrupter haha only cuz of the game so i have almost been riding 4 years but i never knew it haha

Dude?!? are you me? Holy shit thats exactly how it happened to me except i had a diamondback and then got a haro. But i sware thats just how it happend to me. I skated mostly and rode just to ride somewhere but i used to jump curbs and stuff for fun. Then i saw a kid with a nice custom and i lowered my seat cause i thought it looked cool. haha. And then i screwed aroung a little riding a little more as time went on. Then i started H.S in a new bigger town in Jersey (hahah) and there were a bunch of riders there and i got heavy into it. And here i am with a custom.

most of the guys who used to live in my town.
back in middle school i was a hardcore skater kid, thats all i did. but one day while i was out at our community pool (i rode my DB to get there) there was about 10 riders hitting this dirt jump. well i rode up just to watch them, but they convinced me to hit it. i ate shit, but i had never felt a rush like that. ever since then i've been riding

when i was a kid my cousin was the person who inspired me to start riding, he used to do dirt jumps. he always had sickass bikes, gt's , mongooses, s&ms, powerlites, redlines, all sorts of bikes. now i would have to say edwin delarosa (my favorite rider) inspires me. unlike my cousin i never really got into dirt(although im going be building a bike for dirt soon) i much rather prefer street.
