Dirt dirt dirt

It is a shame that some one would even ask that question.You must either be young or doent't ride your bike that much.It's all about having fun.If you feel like riding whatever form of biking there is,do it and doen't worrie about which is better.

It's all in opinion.

Flatlanding- more technical and can get annoying if u can't get a trick right
Dirt- hurts a lot more but air is fun!!! :wink:

DIRT is waaaaaaaayyyyyy better then flatland it has nothin to do with opinion dirt is just better period.  

13 Jan 2003 00:00
yah... except for the fact that that's your opinion...

I like Dirt, but i have a great respect for good Flatland riders, as there is a lot more concentration and discipline involved in it.  

13 Jan 2003 00:02
They can't even be compared because they are so different. The patience required to be good at flatland is the hardest thing to develop. I've ridden both and i prefer street, but flatland comes next. Late.

all of you bob knobbers who say that dirt or flat land is better either you dont ride or ur just gay. a real rider would know that its all your personal opinion on whats better. i personally like street and dirt but i have a lot of respect to the flatlanders because it takes a lot of skill to do that shiz i wouldnt even know how to go about that take it from me i tryed both and ended up liking street but its all up to u... :roll:  

13 Jan 2003 00:04
personally i like doing both dirt and flatland but i started off just dirt. flatland is alot harder cuz you need alot of concentration and you also need patience to put up with getting hurt and screwing up , but for my taste i would rather do BOTH! and not pick.  

13 Jan 2003 00:05
I love both for their different skills and requirements. A good trick in both leave me jaw dropped just itching to get out on my bike and try it. Thats all that matters in the end :twisted:

Your all a bunch of gay lords and you probly all suck at riding cos your sitting at a computer having a pointless discussion about what's better; dirt or flat, instead of actually riding.

All talk and no trouser.

chill out man... 8)
the idea here is to exchange ideas, thoughts...
you don't ride 24/7, do you?

welcome to the boards btw.

It can be all opinion. If your good with technique and balance then i would go for flatland. If you like the rush, and love getting air then go dirt. Actually they can be compared: They are both fun, and are both a brach of bmx riding. Personaly i like street, but that is only cause I live in the city.

All riding is the same nothing is better its just one thing takes more concentration or disipline or skill its all about the fun its no contest man bmx needs to stick to gether and get into destroying skaters and frootbooters(rollerblades)man they sure get i nthe way alot

u have to have dirt to dirt jump, you can flatland basically anywhere, so i consider dirt jumping like the desert, and flatland the main course.

high flier
i like riding dirt and street, unfortunately didnt learn how to ride flatland even though now that im on the off season i try to learn it, so that come this spring i am good at it. so i have to say that there equal in the sense that they are both challenging and require alot of skill to do.

just a little something id like to point out, the first 11 posts are all made by the same guy...:) cheers

Flatland is can be quite demanding and somewhat wild. But i dont think it compares to catching a good 6-8 foot of air off a double and pulling some sick shit off...  

09 Oct 2003 23:34
Skate and bmx
flatland is fu :arrow: cking hard  

10 Oct 2003 21:56
I'll say dirt is awsome so is any other form of riding but for me flatland is what I prefer...It's what im about.  

13 Oct 2003 20:58

19 Feb 2004 12:33

11 Mar 2004 03:41

I believe that nothing is better. Do both. Flatland is very frustrating but cool to watch, and if you can get lots of air riding trails, it's tons of fun.  

05 Apr 2004 02:11
i do both on the same bike  

06 Apr 2004 02:24
Haha, I read this and couldn't help but put my opinion in. I don't care that its like 10 days old. Flatland or dirt which is better...well here's your answer: who knows? Only the person who asked the question does. Because like others were saying its all in opinion. You want your answer to the question, you should go try dirt for sometime then try flatland. You get many answers from experience and experimenting. Another thing, in most cases, you ride dirt and eat it you get broken bones. You ride flatland and maybe some street and eat it you get road rash and maybe some torn TCL's etc.
