I have been using FLY Joey Bradford bars for a few years now, and love the minimal back sweep, they are a bit heavy but great in my eyes.  Having said that I have contemplated the new BOX bars so would love to see how they compare.

Thanks BMX, I have now found the ruling based on 1.3.075, link below

I found it funny where you mentioned "UCI aren't always compliant with there own rules" I am sure we all know of several occasions where this is the case.

Racing / Number plate number size?
« on: November 16, 2013, 04:59:06 PM »
OK I thought this would be a simple one to find out, alas not so.
I have heard that the numbers on our plates are supposed to be 100mm high, but have looked at the BMXA and UCI rules alike but for the life of me can't see it stated anywhere.  Yes I may have missed it, does anyone have the rules that categorically show the minimum number size?
Or perhaps there is now no longer a minimum size, I say this because this years worlds cruiser plates numbers are a mere 63mm high?

Any help appreciated

i think i have said this before there are two types of BMX, SX and BMX some rider want to go down the road of SX and some want to do BMX. so clubs are catering for the two different styles.for those who know my baby son his direction is SX and is not really interested in following  the BMX or traditional type of tracks. so i guess riders need to make a decision  on what form of BMX they want to do before they pass criticism onto a track.

But to be a SX track they need to comprise of far more than just lippy jumps, I know of only 1 in Australia that comes reasonably close (Sleeman)

No matter how many times you have a go at Beenleigh's last straight there is no quick way to get through it without killing yourself.  I have spent hours trying to figure that last straight out.  I won't be doing the shootout round that Beenleigh has because of it.  All the other tracks in Brisbane are great to race on and have a play on to

I know many riders share your sentiments, and have voiced them to the club, likewise I have heard several riders are also talking about skipping the track during the shootout.

There are ways to build a track that can still be a challenge to pro's as much as it is for sprockets.

I would love for the clubs to see rider feedback positively, and not as complaints!

Yes there are some lippy tracks, equally thankfully there are still a few in Brisbane that aren't, I believe we are very lucky to have so many to choose from so can avoid those that we don't fancy!

Yeah cool Big Block, the Vans do seem to be very popular. Is this just cos they are super grippy??

For me it is a few things, my parents could never afford Vans back in the 80's, they are also synonymous with BMX in the early days and now, but best of all they have fantastic grip with a good set of pedals.

I love waffle sole vans shoes, can't beat them in my opinion.

This may be very left field, but what about instead of cash for winnings, how about gift certificates for your local bike shop, a win win, money for kids to upgrade bikes and gear, and a stimulus package for the Aussie bike shop community?

I do not have a rider in this age group, but if I did and I was looking for competition for my rider(considering I am in QLD)
I would consider the following:

Nerang Nats
Tassy titles
Vic Titles
ACT titles
North Island titles in NZ
NT titles

Let alone the South East QLD shootout series in January/February/March

In summary I am saying there are plenty of options if you want competition, and if you don't want the travel then nom up in age and have your kids race 1 or 2 years older
