dont make me get old school


James white on patrol

A police force has been ridiculed for using BMX bikes in a bid to bond with hoodies and 'look cool'.
Leicestershire Constabulary has been accused of 'making a mockery of policing' by using the blue and white bikes, complete with force logos and stunt pegs.
Officers claim the bike, which is designed to be used for tricks and jumps, helps build a rapport with young people and could assist in pursuits through urban back streets.
But the force has been criticised for trying to impress children at skateparks instead of fighting crime and tackling anti-social behaviour.
Roshni Mapara, 21, who has lived in Oadby, Leicester, all her life, said the police were pandering to local youths who had been making residents lives a misery.
She said: 'How on earth can a BMX bike help solve those problems? We have so many hoodies in the area, the last thing we need is an officer trying to look like them.
'Doing wheelies in a skate park to impress kids is hardly helping fight crime.
'There are a lot of problems in the area with local gangs. You see them hanging around on the roads with dogs and it's really frightening.
'I'm often too scared to get out my car and walk into my house because there's a gang of hoodies hanging around. I end up driving round and round until they've gone.

Wow what a day for FLATlinING.

Started the day off with getting my Internet sorted out, then off I went to my friendly neighbour hood bike shop. By friendly (If you know Edwards of Camberwell) you'll know what I mean!
 I spent most of the day sorting out my free-coaster, putting in bearings, driver, axles and just basic new guts; it's now running smooth as can be. Hop 3's won't be so scary. One thing down, now, on to my grips; they were starting to look and feel abit grimey, so I put on some new ones that my bro Jason Forde (father to be, well done bro) had given me. As I started to change my grips I noticed that I had bent my bars some how. Now I would normally just leave 
it until the last moment, so it's an inch from death (like I did with my free-coaster !) but I have a big show on Saturday in front of 2000 people and I don't won't to risk it. So I splashed out on some new bars, some people might be missing out on a Christmas prezzies, but too bad.
So you wonder what bars could I posoble get. I'm going to tell you even if u don't want to know.  If you have ever ridden with me you will know I have given  into the 2pc bar trend, I admit it I'm a seenwhore!

Down to business I went and got my self some SUNDAY tall T bars. 8.7 baby. now things are really going up baby. 
As I  was taking some photos of my new set up to show you guy's, my girlfriend walked in, looked at me .... Called me a prick, turned and ran off to grab her camera....I tried to take a picture as fast as I could  (damn ipone shutter) before she got back to capture my shame :(

Martti Kuoppa the one and only

what can i say about Martti. agen i met this man at the world in 09,we had a big bla bla under some umbrella thing hiding from the rain along with Viki Gomez another one of my top riders i will be doing a right up on soon. talking about KGB and how i bent my 20 million piece bars in a month, his reply was you must ride hard which mad me crack up on the spot. martti had a lot to say about how a lot of riders want ultra light parts but that are as strong as bull. what I'm hoping to see with his new company Jungle rider.
i don't know what video up of martti there are so many grate modern and old videos of him that are so just so god dame good. so I'm going to put up the vid where i first saw martti riding in the flesh

Grand reopning of FLATlinING Bmx the pulse is back
with full repo of
tgms trip to battle in Leicester

The day starts with a bang. Me and Yinka Tomas meet at tgm at about 8to meet Steve Green and Mario Carelse for 830. Yinka gets a call at 8.45
from Mario his face changes within a second. Steve's car has broken
down. We get told to wait at tgm so we wait 9.45 the boys roll up inthe working car (thank god for that) and finally with four bikes, four
bros in a hachback were off to Leicester.

We arrive after a 3 hour journey.... been an hour late Keelan Phillips
event organiser kindly waited for us to arive befor starting the comp.

In amateur we have 6 riders one being our very own Yinka he smashed. landing
him self a cool 1st Place go TGM. thanks to function flatland for
there prizes and all the other riders

1st Yinka
2nd Alex Romain
3rd Stu Mclaren

Now we start to get dirty expert class, now this class was done in
battle format. Once agen we have 6 riders so it started with 3 battles
of 2 riders, then a big fat threesome of a final. I ended up get mached
up with Mario, who I have riden since I started riding and who taught me
many a trick. It was a tough battle. Decades, Boomerangs,
Hitchhikers, and much more was thrown down, but in the end Mario won.

Well done bro..... so Mario advanced to the final along with Andy Wood and ashley adams. Three way final time battle to the death. young Ashley
rocking Time Machines hard fast and long, G-tune, Steamrollers really nice
clean and can see some talant in there but not much else trick wise.
Andy Wood was throwing down some tight rolling links all round nice
stuff. Mario stepped it up for this battle showing off his consistency and
old school flair, which grabbed him a cool 1st place, as well as his first
ever expert win.

Ps Two 1st places for TGM London...... what can I say pure bliss

1st my main man maz
2nd andy wood
3rd ashley adams

You thought Expert was hard core now we're just going plain crazy. Pro
time. 5 riders all have one run, top 3 advance. Steve Green and Lee
Wilson smash it up in there runs. Lee doing his smooth Round the World
crazy shit and Steve spinning on his back wheel like a crazy man...also
landing his first Whopper in a contest. Which I also believe is a first for
UK flatland. But it wasn't enough to beat the skills of James White
Keelan Phillips and Norbert Onodi. Once again we have a three way battle. Norbert Onodi had some nice skills, some real fast Pinkys nice big Switches and it was
cool to see a new rider in pro class. James doing his famous Beoncey booty
wiggle pumping long lines off pure bliss One Hand Whips to Hitchhiker and
Walk Around Deathtrucks, just pure sex on a bike. Kelan.... now normally
I'm not a fan of his riding, technically yes but not the Inertia spark and
fair. This time it was all there Opposite Foot Pedal Hang 5 with his
foot in the frame, Karl Cruiser Bar Flip out and just so much more.
It was such a hard decision James had obviously done a bit of pratice. Kelon was
on fire but the judges had to make a decision (insert dramatic pause)..... a
draw. So that's not a good ending now is it???? so the drama increased.. they got given two options, share 1st and 2nd place prizes or a battle to the death. We
wanted death thay wanted sleep. We came to a decision, who could do the longest
Cliffhanger. It was a fight to the end, James and Keelan playing dirty
but Keelan got the wobbles and slipped out....the look on his face was
pure disappointment. James jumped off his bike happy as a pig in shit
screaming happy no bacon piggy joy. One more for London. Well done to James Mr Level Vibe him self King of the rolling.

1st James White
2nd keelan philips
3rd norbert onodi

Epic day all round sweet time. Mean riding by all. Love that London
had all the top spots. Showing how we roll. Thanks a lot Keelan for
setting up the rock. Thanks to the sponsors Flatland Function, S&M and

P.S FLATlinING exclusive on its way so watch this space
