1. Noah went from putting around the park (after bribing him to go) and getting bored after fifteen minutes to asking to go every day and going bananas when we get there. He’s also scaring the crap out of me , but it’s awesome at the same time. Mom showed up tonight and both boys shifted into show off mode, it ruled. #parkrat

  3. #tbt My first real BMX bike (June 1977)—a Super Cheetah II, as tested in issue #3 of Bicycle Motocross Action. Dual top tubes, a built-in, fixed seatpost (non adjustable) and a super low-profile asthetic. I still love the look of this bike. As stoked on it as I was, I cracked it at the chainstays, my Dad welded it, and I sold it to my friend Rob Martin. He ended up cracking it in like 10 different places, including the seatpost. Early BMX technology was very experimental, and this experiment didn’t pass the metallurgy testing phase. A couple things to note: The number, 283, a nod to my then (and now) hero Scot Breithaupt and the solder wrap on the spokes of the front wheel. My dad laced and trued these wheels (with a small crescent wrench!) and counter-weighted the valve stem like this. These were the first wheels of any kind Vern ever laced and I can tell you now they were perfectly straight, with zero hop. Precision. Also note the single clamp stem, three-armed spider (on the cranks), Roger Decoster forks and coaster brake.

  9. "Pissed" is the best way to describe my feelings about this, especially after I slipped on ice and fell flat on my back, Fred Flintstone style, while unloading my car at 8:00am. #yabadabadoo

     
  10. It was 81 degrees when I left the skatepark in Kentucky yesterday. 28 degrees and snowing just now in MI. Welcome to the Midwest. #snowblows #itswinteragain
