Back in the 70's you used to have to put new bars on your beach cruiser and sail it off jumps in the backyard. Sure that old Schwinn could handle it, but your arm couldn't. So your mom took you to the hospital, got you a cast and took your bike away. Then came the 80's and BMX ruled. Race it, jump it, ride around un-supervised all summer. Recently BMX has not faired as well. As Mountain Bikes have begun to dominate the scene. There's still a place for BMX, like the new dirt jumps out at rocky top or if you like to spend your weekends driving your kid to tracks around the Northwest. Bearded Monkey thinks if you're over 14 you should get a dirt jumper. If you're under 14 we better see you at the jumps hucking it.
