8 Things I Hate About Vital BMX.

Earlier today I issued a tweet that claimed, simply, that “everyone hates Vital”. Now of course this is an exaggeration. Clearly many people like Vital. But I received at least 2 responses that seemed shocked that ANYONE would hate Vital. So you know what? Fuck it. I’ve had roughly 6 years to think about this. Here are 8 things I hate about Vital.

1) They constantly steal news from other sites and don’t attribute the source. In other words, if I post a sponsor change on TCU, Vital will repost the news without crediting TCU. This is bad internet etiquette. To be fair, Ride does the same thing and so do plenty of other sites but Vital is the biggest offender. As a result, when we take a news item from Vital we usually don’t bother linking back to them like we do with any other site that links back properly like say, Defgrip or BMX Union.

2) They run pre-roll ads on videos that they don’t own. Go watch a video on Vital and most of the time, you’ll have to watch a 15 second pre-roll ad before the Vimeo or Youtube link even loads. I’ve never seen this done on any other type of blog in any corner of the internet. Typically any sort of pre-roll advertising goes directly to whoever published the video. Any site that aggregates content (ie; every BMX site) runs banner ads alongside 3rd party content but Vital is the only site audacious enough to run pre-roll ads in front of other people’s videos… even when the video is a tribute to Mike Tag:

 

3) Nobody (or close to nobody) who works at Vital rides BMX bikes. I’m cool with some of Vital’s employees (I used a photo of me and Kyle Carlson all drunk last weekend at Dew Tour last weekend to stress this fact) but let’s face it, Vital is primarily owned and operated by guys who don’t really ride BMX. On the other hand, all of Ride and TCU’s non-Gutstains employees still ride and most of them ride very well. Vital reads like a site that is run by people who don’t give a shit about BMX or at least don’t know much about it.

4) Vital does nothing to support physical BMX media. I’ve made it pretty clear that I don’t hold magazines and DVD’s in the same regard that some of my peers do, but TCU is constantly posting magazine covers, DVD information and doing what we can, as an online property, to support other types of BMX media. It gives us more content to post and it helps support other people doing good things in BMX. Vital doesn’t do this. In fact if you only knew about BMX via Vital, you wouldn’t even know that any other magazines or BMX sites existed at all.

5) Vital has absolutely nothing interesting to say. Granted, many BMX sites don’t either and there often isn’t much to work with when describing marginal BMX videos. But Vital literally NEVER has anything interesting to say. The site reads like a feed of 3rd grade level video descriptions and copy and pasted press releases.

6) So get this. You have to click through to each video on Vital. The videos auto-play, unlike every other BMX site. But Vital runs pre-roll ads before all the videos they post. So even if you for some reason open a page on Vital and don’t choose to play the video, the video is already playing. But more importantly, the ad is also already playing. Maybe you don’t think this is a big deal, but when Vital began this practice, their Vimeo view counts doubled or tripled. This practice creates a bad experience for users but perhaps more importantly, it’s dishonest towards their advertisers who are paying for pre-roll ads that often aren’t being viewed at all.

7) Vital doesn’t post any video that includes a TCU or OSS logo. They don’t post almost anything hosted on Ride’s player, ESPN’s player or really almost anything associated with any other BMX media company. How is that okay? Why do advertisers support this weird insulated view of BMX media that Vital promotes?

8) They won’t argue back. Plenty of big names in the BMX industry have taken shots at Vital, even within the past couple days (Empire, Ride and JPR), but nobody from Vital ever responds. Like, I guess it’s cool to be all mature and just ask my nigga Lebron; we so big we ain’t gotta respond with it but the difference is that when Lebron James doesn’t respond, it’s because he doesn’t have to; his play speaks for itself. When Jay Z doesn’t respond, it’s because many people acknowledge he’s the greatest rapper of all time. When Vital doesn’t respond, they don’t respond because nobody at Vital could last 140 characters in a war of words with anyone previously mentioned before it would be made abundantly clear that this cat has no claws.

That’s all I got for now. Am I biased? Fuck yeah I’m biased. But I’m 99% sure I’d feel the same way if I didn’t own a rival website. Pretty much all my friends don’t fuck with Vital either, and any time I mention anything that was posted on Vital (it’s hard to even think of an example given how bland their content is) usually nobody knows what I’m talking about.

All that being said, I don’t hate Vital. I mean really, as lame as the things listed above are, none of them are THAT serious in the grand scheme of things. I’m sure I’ll get at least a few U MAD responses, but I’m not mad. I have felt this way forever, and never even bothered to write about it until now, that’s how not mad I am. Really, I could have probably titled this article “8 Things I Wish Vital Would Improve Upon” and it would have been essentially the same article albeit less mean spirited. But where’s the fun in that? Talking shit is more entertaining than helpful advice and at the end of the day, the blog business is the business of keeping people entertained. Fuck you Vital, I hope someone spills coffee on your keyboard.

Comment on this post if you completely agree or completely disagree, I would love to hear some opinions.

  1. Lol true. I felt insulted when I read the descriptions of videos when I would go to vital I stopped going because by the format of the site I assumed it was for children. I didn't know for sure it was non riders writing though it seemed that way knowing that I definitely won't be hitting that site

    • I wouldn't buy a car from a salesman who has never driven a car. Same goes for BMX. I don't want some crappy coverage of what sells the best.

      The one thing I love about TCU is that one day on the front page I can watch an insane edit for Kriss Kyle, and Alex D. and scroll down to find a throwback Butcher part or the new Tate Roskelly edit.

  2. Good wording on this post. It was like a quality assurance rating for the site if anything. I like vital for the most part cause I live in Vegas where 2 of the lead filmers for the site live. And for the record Ryan galvan does ride and is pretty good to. Kyle Carlson has always been nice to me when he comes out up film with josh betley or whatever it be.

    In regards to above how you talk about how they seem bored with it or aren't into BMX. They are they just want to do something more with it. The gear guide thing has long since been annoying and the mono-tone voice you hear is the "damn I have to do like three more of these damn things I'm so over these lets film something fun"

    I don't speak for vital or anything like that I'm not associated with them by any means other than friendships I've made with them over the years cause they live here in Vegas and I hang out with them on a casual basis.

    Good critique though Adam gives you something to think about that the average rider wouldn't necessarily notice.

  3. I think vital is still good. They sum up really good the stuff i want to see. Even if ride ir TCU got more news/vids… Most of these don't really interest me. And they got thepower hour. Quite cooli think

  5. I'm not a vital fan either my main page is TCU and sometimes Ride gets stuff up a little bit faster but TCU has always been my favorite.

    • I am usually down with the "if you don't like em, ignore em" approach but this is an instance in which there's a lot going on that I don't think the average BMX fan notices and I figured a lot of people would appreciate me pointing some of these things out.

    • True… I didn't care for them before because I knew they don't have love for the game. But fudging the numbers for profit is pretty disgusting and actually hurts companies, even if it's a negligible amount.

  6. Well put Adam I've felt this way for years. Some kids just get sucked into vital when they first start and never want to change over or never even know that another, better site existed because vital doesn't advertise anything, not vital like you said, but I know kids that I've converted and they say they will never go back to that mess of a site. Keep it up Adam!

    • I for one appreciate someone standing up to a company such as Vital who definitely aren't in this online space to help grow the industry. They definitely have their flaws and I 100% agree that pre-rolling content with ad's that doesn't even belong to them is completely unfair. They should only monetize Vitals own branded content. One point to be noted is the use of cleared music, again mostly bland choices but it's a sensible idea to keep themselves somewhat within the law, distribution of copyrighted content such as web edits with the latest popular music tracks leaves you liable to a number of legal issues.

      The article overall was a good read and argues some valid points.

    • I for one, would have found it to be fantastic if you included a ninth category. "They don't post pictures of cats doing cool shit" I do appreciate the choice of words though. Came off as very professional and made if very clear that these are your opinions. HOWEVER this is your website and frankly TCU can make an opinion into fact ifdone properly (I.e. Indian give

    • Fucking cockblock mobile web safari piece of shit cut me off… As I was saying, make this shit fact. Make kids hate vital. Push them out of BMX. The heart isn't there and they shouldn't be capitalizing financially on so many videos that get posted.

  7. when I first started riding I was fag and ignorant about bmx. and all I went on was vital. as soon as I started going to diff. companies websites and looked at ride and the come up. I never went back to that site besides maybe once to watch a interbike video. my whole persona changed. pretty funny to read this now. thanks adam!

    • i got my first bike christmas 2009? and i had it for 8 months and i got pretty good for being 4'7. but i was very weak. that summer i was riding round rock skatepark and got held up. (got another bike 5 months later) becuase i look so damn small. on top of that i have a protein dificiency. i have protein shakes everyday (since beginning of 2012) and i work out as much as i can. so now im 5'8 and almost 118 pounds as of today. going into 8th grade i was 4'10 90 lbs. i have been riding a long time i just have a tough time progressing. unlike the others kids riding at house or 9th, thats why it seems like i haven't been riding that long. but i ride every day and i have fun doing it. proves you can have fun on a bike no matter what your status.

  9. 1. Really nothing to say here because you just admitted to doing the same, lol.
    2. Youtube does this.
    3. Its a media company involved in the ACTION SPORTS niche, not just somebody who rides running a WordPress blog.
    4. Probably a valid point there.
    5. Lol yeah pretty PG13.
    6. Black Hat, Yes! Kind of like that time you had TCU auto refresh for a month or two.
    7. Business Baby
    8. You said it yourself.

    I check both TCU and Vital. Nothing Else. Sometimes Vital has videos posted before TCU, and I just want to see it all before I get off the computer. TCU is still my homepage. Its obvious from a business POV, but its a competitor and like you said…talking shit is entertaining!

    • 1) except that we don't do it to anyone who links back in an ethical fashion 2) no comparison, Youtube does it to videos that are uploaded to their site and the content owner shares in the profits 6) I never intentionally made that happen, the site was just running like shit

  12. yea fuck vital. I hate the video player its so annoying. I feel like everything they do is just like top park pros riding there private ramps and shit. they don't know about the real shit goin on.

  13. I always felt like vital was for the mike spinner daniel dhers crowd and the come up was just street as fuck. This makes me think more than that I guess I never paid any attention to the fact that there website sucks. That's just fucked up about the ads greedy bastards.

  14. Vital is for kids who's parents who won't let them go on TCU. I think it is owned by Brad McDonald. The guy who started Ride and Snap the old racing magazine. Here is the link to his bio. http://www.23mag.com/gens/mcdo.htm
    So that is why he has beef with Ride. Transworld took over Ride and ran him out. Or he seen print dying and decided to hop ship and build the Vital brand. Smart move it seems like to me. I heard from the Grapevine that they don't like to pay their employees what they are worth. But you can't believe everything you hear. It looks like to me from Brad's bio that he is an OG in BMX.
    Why does he have beef with TCU?
    And the Mike Tag Tribute Video that can be simply resolved by Vital making a donation if they haven't already.

  15. vital runs a lot of 'circus style riding' which is dope, but these people, the people that 'don't ride' (i'm from Vegas, these people, or at least the two already named Vegas residents that are contributors to the site, they know riding) or at least not like that (haha) find it more entertaining, maybe because that's what sells. There's not too many people that ride (regularly, foot and a half tall ledges only, and are sponsored by energy drinks) they caan do that but they also like ramps, vital tends to stick to that and almost exclusively to that. Other than that their video player is absolute shit. underground rappers promote underground rappers, or their friends, which is maybe the same reason why your website has a lot more up and coming, or I know by now we all hate this term 'foot tall ledge riders' but they will only get big on this site.

  16. I think if everyone ran shit the same way shit would get boring. But vital is the shit and so is the come up. I do like the point that they don't ride. But Kyle Carlson can sure throw a few back.

  17. As if people are swearing allegiance to the come up. Gay. There are so many more websites than just ride, vital or TCU. broaden your horizons kids!

  19. Vital is useful in one respect….my school hasn't blocked their video player so I can watch edits at school…otherwise. Fuck vital.

  20. I really hate Vital. This makes me hate them even more, and like TCU even more. Scummy business practices and shitty content and possibly the world's worst player don't make a good site.

  21. "Vital has absolutely nothing interesting to say" I know that feel bro! I have always prefered reading on things on tcu because I can feel that a actual rider posted it, not like vital does, like, "heres the video, watch it, I'm not sure if its good or bad I don't even know any bmx tricks" hahah! GET THEM ADAM.

  22. You guys are deluded, http://www.ffwdbmx.com is the best BMX site in the world, although, I don't write anything interesting because my brain is fried like a scrambled egg by the time I've sieved through pages on TCU and found a video worth stealing/posting, we're a little more laid back here at the Fast Forward BMX enterprise.

  23. It's such a shame that getting a video featured on here is regarded as highly as it is. Given the competition though, I can completely understand why things are as they are. It would be so nice for other parties to step up and do things properly. BMX would be better.

  24. Yea vital is not the greatest. Everyone knows why.. But I feel like tcu could improve on a bunch of things too. Both sites take a very different approach to get an audience. There has to be a common ground here. On one hand you cant sound so corporate with writing and add puke. On the other you can't sound so raw posting things like "yo this vid got me real stoned cuz so and so did every grind to hard one." and the video is full of some crew smoking blunts nibbling around. Yea bud you smoke weed. So does everyone else. Get over it. Immature… Moms probably never going to set tcu as her home screen for little 12 year old Timmy because of things like that… Also it gets to a point where There is to much content on tcu. Fire edits like garretts feind edit or that Alex colborn one from awhile back get buried by all these cookie cutter videos… Maybe once a video gets over a certain number of views it's stays in a separate box on the side for like a week or so. Anyway thats my constructive criticism on tcu…

  25. Quite similiar to shitty situation in bmx.pl.
    Don't care about Vital details, but working like that anyway is crap, no matter is it Vital, BMX.pl or anything else. If we treat BMX like worldwide business with big money in some places, let it be treated like this in both directions. You want something, then give something! I mean stuff like sponsored posts, giving credits to photographers, videographers or etc.

  26. I totally agree, I never was a fan of vital, because of the same reasons. plus it always seems like it was for little kids. plus that whole profile shit, seemed like it was myspace or something.

  27. I don't get why people visit the site at all to be honest. I'll admit, I do occasionally go on it myself, though that is generally when all other sources of procrastination on the internet have dried up completely. The only piece of decent content that I have ever seen on Vital that TCU missed is the 10min Kriss Kyle edit that was released a few days ago (which is sick btw). Many of my friends only check Vital, and I hate it, whenever I mention a TCU Premier/Exclusive which absolutely blows my mind they have no idea what I'm on about. It's stupid, Vital is like the family member that everyone hates, and doesn't want to be associated with.

  29. The simple fact that nobody at Vital actually rides is enough reason for me not go to that site. Same reason I stopped buying from corporate companies all those years ago.. Granted, I'm not spending my money on web videos.

  30. I've never had a username, but I have always checked bmxboard, it seems to be the most relevant site in bmx still, plus who doesn't love seeing what jeffy p has on his mind? I know I do. bmxboard>tcu>vital

  31. niggas just trying to cash out I don't see any harm in that even if they do it distastefully its business. Everyones trying to make a buck off bmx nowadays. I don't ever troll vital but clearly they have a big enough following to operate. so why you hating my son? there making more money then the come up huh have a couple real sponsors I ain't know.

  32. All the other site suck because the don't have the guts to post anything like this article. Even if I disagreed with this, it would still be way more interesting than any of Vital's non-commentary.

  33. I totaly agree with you adam because for some reason they always have shitty video players and always have the newest edits on their site before anyone else does. I'm not fucking with vital no more.

  34. don't forget the forums! everyone on there is just 12 year old kids and fat guys that are sad cause they can't do barspins. "who has the best looking bike" contests. people trying to scam you out of your parts. and people cursing you out and being just down right rude no matter what you post. Vital go rot in hell.

  35. what I'm feeling is that Vital is just like bmx plus they are very vague, Therefore stating that vital is more for kids and a parent audience just like bmx plus! As for TCU its more for the serious rider who looks into the industry and I guess you could say a little more seasoned in BMX knowledge! Now with all that said I prefer TCU over vital, but I do get to see some videos that I don't see on TCU that I get to see on Vital and so forth!

  36. Adam: You're standing next to Kyle smiling in the photo at the top of this page – if you wanted a response, that might have been a good opportunity to discuss these issues (no audience, though). A couple of your points question our ethics, so I'll address them.

    TCU has been selling ads around other people's content (ours included) since day one. On your site, there are paid ads next to the Mike Tag tribute video. The Ride site has the same video and there are ads for hot dogs and a surfing movie next to it. We run ads, too. Pre-roll is a different ad format, but we're all giving brands free exposure in exchange for advertising. And yes, we gave $500 to the Mike Tag memorial fund (on a similar note, our Game of BIKE events raised over $20k for the Athlete Recovery Fund in the past two years). How about you?

    Yes, videos on our site auto-play, just like YouTube. Most people go to a video page to watch the video. I haven't seen any increase in views because of it, but if there are, that means people are watching the pre-rolls and advertisers are getting their money's worth.

    No, I don't ride any more, but you might find me at the BMX track with my kids. Fortunately, the guys who make and post our content do ride. Plenty of your advertisers don't ride any more either; maybe you should take shots at them, too.

    As far as general dishonesty, you've been promoting your site for years by claiming it's the most popular BMX site. I saw your media kit a few months ago, and I'm sure you've seen some of our traffic stats. Our audience is twice as large.

    Random comments people left:
    * We've got a new video player on the way.
    * I have no beef with Ride BMX. For those who don't know, I started the magazine out of my bedroom twenty years ago. I sold it to TransWorld and stayed on running it for many years. I left to start Vital six years ago. No bad will on my side, I just think the web is the way to go.
    * Vital BMX probably spends more money on content than any other BMX website, and it's been that way for a number of years. We create around twenty pieces of original content each month, all of which involve a BMX filmer or photographer getting a paycheck. This supports BMX in a way that simply re-posting other people's content does not.

    We choose to spend our time and energy creating content, improving the site, etc – not stirring up drama. If you're looking for some sort of public, ongoing online argument, you're not going to find it here.

    • As I said, my intentions here were more to write a funny blog than to come to any sort of resolution. I understand and can relate to any of the complaints I've listed here; most of them make perfect business sense. I simply find them distasteful.

      The notion that you are "giving brands free exposure in exchange for advertising" shows a fundamental lack of understanding of how the internet works and what your duty to your audience is. TCU posts BMX videos because BMX videos are important and deserve to be seen; if we can run some ads alongside them to help us make money, so be it.

      If your "audience" is so much larger, why does TCU destroy Vital in Vimeo views, Facebook shares, comment counts etc? Those are a few of the only metrics that you can't fudge. I'll enjoy seeing you answer this while trying to avoid admitting to black hat SEO tactics/buying Facebook likes.

      There are over 200 responses above that all agree with me and almost none that disagree. You're doing something wrong, I'm just the first person to write about it.

    • Hey Brad,

      I think you really need to move vital on from bmx! Maybe start vitalcooking or vitalwanking? I decided to stop making videos for your site because you don't have a clue whats going on in bmx anymore.

    • real talk, Adam22 is not hiding behind the money and profit, if you need to make some cheddar on the side do it but dont sell out! Im all about getting cash but not the buster way lol!

    • I remember a long time a go I watched a video on vital where these dudes were riding in an alley and they came upon this homeless dude and all of a sudden the homeless dude tells them they have 7 seconds to clear out or he was gonna start unloading his gun on them and the riders shitted a brick and jetted out of there well lots of comments were posted on the vital site about that incident including mine that said I would have picked up my bike and threw it on that lowlifes head before he even started counting and that hes homeless where the hell is he gonna get a gun let alone a 40 to drink so whe Ini tried to go to vital a few days later I was blocked or banned for the comment I posted and some time back you go to my FB profile & disrespect it for no reason so I went to you page and put Fuck vital you suck. and have never bothered with your crap site since! Rest In peace Mike Tag.

    • you probably drive a mercedes benz. adam's more like a escalade kind of guy. nothing is wrong with either. adam's car has bangin' rims and Catfish getting a blow job from The Situation in the back!

  37. Adam you clever boy, you really know how to hit the headlines. No, seriously, glad that there are still people who publish such critical content on their pages. Keep BMX in the internet alive !

  38. I agree vital blows, but Brad did start ride magazine which in my opinion was the best piece of bmx media for a while… its defs lost some character in recent years.

  39. I definitely agree with Adam on this one. Vital has and will always be the most boring BMX media site. Shits bland, the publishers edits tend to lack in all things good, with the exception of the rider presented in said edits.. The cleared music always eats dick and the only time I ever happen to enjoy a Vital video is because Jourdan Barba is in it. And I believe that's happened a couple times now.. Other than that, pure suck. And the ad rolls and general lack of actual BMX employees, good god. Kyle Carlson is okay I suppose, I think he wanted to fight me once for something I said, I think I called him fat but that's neither here nor there. I remember when I was blogging, I was tearing everything and everyone up, people were offended and out for me at times but I think that made mediocre entertainment for a maybe a handful of people.

  40. THE COME UP IS THE REAL SHIT. NOT SOME FAKE ASS BITCH ASS VITAL THAT WILL ONLY PUT UP BIG NAME EDITS.
    IF YOU HAVE AN EDIT THAT IS KICK ASS AND YOU ARE NOT WELL KNOWN YOU WONT MAKE IT ON VITAL.
    THE COME UP DOESN'T HOLD ANYTHING BACK, THEY DON'T WORRY WHAT THE COMPANY'S WILL SAY, THEY DON'T HAVE TO LICK ANY BALLS. IF YOU SUCK, YOU SUCK AND THEY WILL LET YOU KNOW.
    ITS SUCK THAT A COMPANY MAKES MONEY FROM BMX WHEN THEY DON'T GIVE A SHIT FOR BMX.
    THEY MUST USE A LOT COPY AND PASTE.
    THEY DON'T POST SHIT FROM OTHER WEBSITES LIKE TCU, ESPN OR RIDE WHY IS THAT? ARE THEY HATING?
    YOU NEED TO SUPPORT MAGS AND DVD'S.
    FUCK THE 10-15 SECOND PRE-ROLL ADDS. SHOW ME THE EDIT NOT A MIRACO. ADD.
    IF YOU LIKE VITAL YOU MUST JACKOFF TO HARRY MAIN AND MARK WEEB.

  42. As a Rider and a Shop Owner I can say TCU is the only site I use to stay up on the 20inch industry. Thanks @adam grandmaison.

  43. Vital sold US secrets to the Chinese, and helped aid the Tailban. Rumors from my imagination confirm that they've been talking shit all day as well. They voted for the other guy too and said Obama wasn't rad, and they said our troops aren't important and that freedom WAS free. THIS SHALL NOT STAND VITAL.

  44. I agree.. iv never liked vital…. the way its set up or content.. I think tcu has a well rounded staff and knows their shit.. and well.. keeps me entertained..

  45. Stumbled back on this and it caught my interest. 1. Adam said he was open to constructive criticism. Then why did you delete my comment? My comment said something like, then why do so many pro's comment on Vital and why does TCU still as I type this still use their videos to post? 2. Brad said they donated money to Tag, did you? You didn't answer that. As for what some others said about Brad. That dude started the dopest magazine EVER in bmx. To act like he doesn't know bmx is ridiculous. He's been around for 20 years. Also you said TCU posts BMX videos because BMX videos are important and deserve to be seen. Really 9 out 10 is street riding. Same tricks different people. I'm not defending anyone because I love bmx no matter what site it's on. Both sites have shit on them I don't like. I have no favorites. Final note. To everyone on Adam's dick. Remember before TCU went to using FB comments and Adam posted an edit of him? Before everyone was like fuck Adam. You're talking out of your ass and so on. I remember it. Now after the edit everyone is like you're right about this and you're right about that. WTF people! Can't make up your mind with out getting on this bandwagon?

  46. You can correspond with them and find out if they can ship the required model to your place.

    This kind of luxury is all about your individual requirements and dreams for the perfect winter break, and perhaps
    the little things you haven. The cost may seem higher than regular villa
    stay or a hotel but the stay is worth it.
