Pro BMX Skills is ready to print!


Today I did the last round of edits — really, I mean it this time — and exported the print-ready pdfs. Tomorrow I meet with a potential investor. Based on that negotiation I’ll decide whether to do on-demand digital printing (low initial cost, low profit margin) or print 5,000 copies on a traditional press (high initial cost, higher profit margin). The finish line is so close I just want to sprint for it, but I need to stay smart.

The proofs look great. I can’t wait to get this book out there!

Reacquainting with the 20

Does this BMX bike fit me?

Hello Lee,

I hope all is well with you and your wife + kidlets!!!

I’m thinking of getting into BMX and was wondering if you can take a look at the pic below and tell me if this bike is too long for me. I’d like to get the right size bike to start with. I’m 5’3” and this is an Intense Race Pro XL with 21” Top Tube. It does feel a bit too big.

Thanks, in advance, for your advice.
