Re: mtb vs. bmx

Wheelie Boy wtf are you talking about, mtb are pimp as hell for endo's?? They suck! Guy on a mtb u can:

Stoppie
Endo
Highchair Endo
Ankle Stoppie
Tail Whip,
180 Endo

On a bmx u can:

Stoppie
Endo
Highchair Endo
X-up Endo
1 handed rolling endo's (standing)
1 handed stoppies (standing)
Ankle stoppie
1 handed stoppie siting
No handed stoppie sitting,
Rear Peg stoppie
Rear Peg Endo,
Tail Whips
180 Rolling Endo's
Superman Endo's
Superman Stoppies,
Reverse front peg endo's and stoppies,
No handed rolling 12'oclock endo's (standing on front pegs, seat against ur back,

Personally, although I learned how to endo on my mountain bike, I enjoy doing them on my BMX alot more. I have better control, a smaller frame to work with, more options of where to stand so I can transfer my weight better, I find them easier to balance, its just plain better for front wheel mischeif. The only reason i'd buy a mtb now is for disc brakes, and because they've got more gears, so I could do better wheelies, and longer endo's, and I could ride around the city more.

Re: mtb vs. bmx

well, just cause I'm tall, I don't fit well on a bmx bike, so I ride mtb. I started off on bmx bikes, but then grew, and yea, i went to a mtb. There are more tricks you can do on bmx though, I will admit.

I'm 6'2 and I can move my BMX like its a toy. Wtf, how tall are you? 7'8? My BMX is fine. I can put a foot on the back peg, a foot on the front peg, my knee against the handle bar, pull the brake and roll a one hander. If your short, thats impossible, u gotta do it from the pedals and then u have to brake harder or lean more. Plus I can stand in one pedal, throw my leg over the bars and stand on the front peg to pull and X-up endo without any trouble, and when I loop it I don't can myself cuz i've got about 4 inches of safety. Thats 4 inches that someone 5'10 doesn't have :D

Bmx rock! :YEAH

Re: mtb vs. bmx

Damn... with all the BMXer's on here, I'd hate to chime in and say I like mtn bikes better!... but I do. I live in the rockies and I need a full suspension to tackle the fun stuff. Maybe if I lived in the city I'd ride BMX.... but for now... I'll stick to my cannondale.

Re: mtb vs. bmx

bmx all the way. you can flow alot better without jacking yourself in trails and quarters. plus, street is totally different on a mtb. you jsut cant do crazy 40 stair rails on a mtb like you can on a bmx.

Re: mtb vs. bmx

I like MTB but the only reason is b/c my bro rides downhill and XC professionally, so i've always just stuck with the MTB's.
