Im with you ant.Hey Im old school,I didnt want to wear a full face helmet but the caveman talked me into it because of safety.clips are dangerous plain and simple.If the trend was wearing skateboard helmets,because they were lighter and made you a half a second faster,would that be ok too?HEY!PEDDAL THE DAMN BIKE YOU HALF-A-SISSY’S.Inovations are fine when they improve the overall product,the races i have watched recently are pretty boring,nobody jumps anything anymore.Is it because they are clipped in and dont want to wreck?And to those that say”well everybody is clipped in”,I say”never underestimate a large group of stupid people”There I hope I pi$$ed off a whole bunch of people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!June 26, 2007 at 1:13 pm #471064130forlifeMember

HEY 4130,i couldnt find an open face helmet anywhere,not to mention a mouth guard.I was kinda partial to the mouthguards that clipped on to the goggles.if you know where i can get one let me knowJune 27, 2007 at 1:01 am #47132s4lnjMember
i wear a full face– cause i’m just too damn pretty to take a chance.
i run flats– for reasons that have been beat to death and at this point are unimportant

I guss i’m the only opposition to this. I started using clips when i turned expert about 8 years ago. i immediatly noticed abig difference in my gate and first straight. they do help out. Also, i remember how many people used to slip pedals and smash a certain place pretty hard. You don’t see as much of that anymore. To the contrary though i do not think that a rider should be able to ride clips until they are at least a novice. They first need to learn the important bike skills before their feet are locked into a bike. Nothing pisses me off more than seeing a 5 year old kid clipped in on the gate that falls over because he doesn’t know how to balance. [/b]June 27, 2007 at 3:55 am #47145
just race your damn bike and kill everything in your way.June 27, 2007 at 8:27 pm #47167
is it mandatory for every new poster to beat this dead horse?
clips are here. plain and simple. if you don’t like them, don’t use them. If you do the use them. I think is serves no good purpose to keep bringing this up…THEY ARE NOT GOING AWAY…so live with itJune 27, 2007 at 9:57 pm #47172bmiddaughMember
Not a fan of clips, but I’m also not a fan of people not riding BMX bikes.
So if it takes clipping into your ride to make you happy and want to kick it.
Then clip them toes in fellers. —June 27, 2007 at 10:57 pm #47180
