New Bike Parts! Flatware Twombolt 160 and 22 sprocket

I decided to switch from the Quamen crank to the Flatware Twombolt crank. I wanted a little bigger sprocket for a more powerful crank so I pedal less and can go faster! Plus the bigger sprocket looks so much more BMX! 22/9 doggie.

Jo Mo Pro

Photobucket

I attended the JoMoPro contest in Missouri recently and had an amazingly fun time! Paul killed it all weekend and it was cool to meet a few people in person for the first time. I placed 13th but I rode terrible so I was stoked with that, for now:) I want to ride very hard and start competing at as many contests as possible. I feel like contests will push me to ride harder and at this stage in my life thats what I want to do more than anything:) I intended to write a lengthy report but have since decided to just stay a few things. You cant blame the judges for judging with their own judgement haha but clearly they all were not qualified to be judging a pro flatland contest. That was the only con of Jomopro, all of the judges were not qualified. Also Im totally for open judging, its what we all do in our heads when we watch a contest ... is it not?

Austin Texas

I am a little behind on reporting my flatland travels but after Jomopro I headed down to Austin, Texas to ride with the locals and hang out with a few old friends. It rained a lot but I rode the OG everynight with Adam, Jim, EZ Chris, John Yull, and David. All super nice guys and very amazing riders! Dakine and I stayed at Jims house so thanks to Jim for hooking us up with a super comfortable couch! I visited Empire BMX to say hello to my good friends Tina and Tom and also was able to catch up with my good friend Ommar who was my teammate when I first began doing demos and riding for GT.


My final night Rad Dad came straight from working all week (and being at jomopro the weekend prior) to the OG to ride and film a little. All of the rumours about this guy are true, hes all about flatland!! :) Read more at BMXfreestyler.com

Jim made a edit:






So I have a great friend in Austin who Ive known for many many mannnyyyyy years:) Her name is Michelle and she shoots photos. She is a super talented photographer so I thought it would be cool to have her come shoot my last night at the OG. She had never really shot flatland before so as an experiment I gave her no direction and let her shoot it from her point of view. (instead of trying to get a certain shot... GET THE SHOT!! no haha) Anddd the pictures came out amazing! Here are a few:
