..just for reference sake: this thread was just to justify that the Vans BMX shoes that I've been riding have been holding up well and might be a option for some flat pedals riders. I pretty much think the the whole Flats vs Clicks discussions have been ... more »

Thanks for all the comments, I am sure that all the wheel sizes have their ad / disadvantages. Not really sure I am ready to ride this MX train - and to be honest the MX bikes look horrible in my opinion. @yzedf - glad to hear you had your experiences ... more »

Added reply in a thread Does anyone know if the Specialized swat stem tool fits in the fox 38? 6/10/2020 11:13 AM

Added a comment about video Is Your Suspension Dialed? FOX Teaches You How to Get It Done 6/4/2020 10:37 AM
