Empire BMX: Smoking the Bowl Mar 22, 2012

Minutes after I posted my Recent Roll photos, Tom from Empire sends this over. Austin fucking rules…

“We celebrated completion of our new bowl with a little party, featuring riders from Mutiny Bikes, Terrible One, Etnies, and Empire BMX. filmed by Ryan Navazio and Joe Simon. Edited by Joe Simon. Thanks Corrigan and crew!”

    I know I’ll cause a lot of controversy saying this……But BMX tops fixed gear freestlye in every way, shape, and form.  

    • There’s no controversy, that’s a known thing. People who ride FGFS don’t compare it to BMX, they’re two different entities.

        I was unaware of this.  Regardless, I really enjoy the BMX videos, please keep posting them!

        • Dude what about trial bikes?  How does Danny Macaskill not beat BMX?  Though you could argue trial bikes are “big BMX”  There are so many bikes, a man could only hope to be lucky enough to try them all.

          Furthermore, FGFS is building on tradition, (really old tradition: 
          http://fixedgearbikes.blogspot.com/2011/11/daring-feats-of-trick-rider.html )
          That tradition is not only being kept alive but enriched as well.  It has been very interesting to see the incorporation of BMX parts to track bikes as well as geometry modifications that have developed in the last decade.  Just don’t write off FGFS too fast man, there’s a lot to love.

  • That bowl in Austin just ensured that we are going to see bigger and stylier bowl lines in BMX for years to come.

  • wait, this video is about bicycles?!

    love the ‘feel-good’ vibe of this vid!
