whats your NKS rating?

NKS= New Kewl System (ok it might need a new name )

i think they should change the level system. it should be replaced with my kewl system. instead of having a level you have a rating. every skill or trick will have a certain amount of points (if the skill is in level 5 then it gets 5 points), then you add up all the points from all the skills you can do then get a rating.... and the best thing is it doesn't matter what order you do things in (example you can wheel walk before you can ride backwards)

EXAMPLE
if you can:
free mount (1)
ride 50m (1)
ride down 15cm vertical drop (2)
hop 5 times (3)

you would have a rating of 7 (if my math is right )


in the NKS (new kewl system) my rating is 75

what is your NKS rating?

I picked up another level ten skill, (one-footed wheel walk in circle with left foot) so now I'm 549/595.

Nice way to count you valuable.

Thumbs up

nice idea!!!
after 2.5 months of riding i'm a 150 :-)
The one thing i don't like about those skills is it doesn't measure you're trials or MUni ability.. it's mostly freestyle
