How many flatland riders in the world??
« on: June 07, 2010, 06:52:20 AM »
What would be your rough estimate on the number of flatland riders in the world as of 2010?

I guess there might be contradictions on what it takes to be a "flatlander"


...just something i've been pondering about for a while


to throw out a guess, i would say 1000? i could be way off  :beer:

More than you would think. My guess is around 2500. Of course, I could be wrong......

The forum memberlist isn't accurate because more than half are inactive or no longer riding. Plus some members have many accounts or keep opening a new one. Also, not all riders use the internet, or have net access, particularly in poor countries. There are thousands of flatlanders in Japan alone, yet only a few Japanese are members here.


My guess would be less than 10,000.

yeah, this is very true. plus not all riders have accounts on here. so member list isn't very reliable.

There are 1.000 on spot map. So, I'd say 10.000-20.000.

Woah, that would mean that every 350000 person on Earth rides flatland! Flat rocks!

Japan is like where its popular, everywhere else its like very few riders. my guess is like 95000. Im thinking of goin to Japan for summer vacation to get some parts and to meet some riders  ;D

There's like half a bazillion living in Texas.
The other half lives in Japan.

Other than that, like 2 dozen, maybe.
