BMX is like the Mickey Mouse Club, we all ride kids bikes and do circus stunts. Generally speaking, yes, a bmx bike is a "child's" bike. Because technically the norm for sizing a bike would not put an adult on a 20". It's whatever. Good for LZ and Stranger, ... more »

I've replaced it already. It's really not a bad stem, just a little funny looking. Regardless, here's my new one. One off solid Delusion stem. Ti hardware.

I totally understand what you're saying. But there has always been and will always be this side of the coin. We've been looked at as druggies, etc. long before the TCU or the internet existed too. This isn't something new. Skateparks CAN be breeding ... more »

I had a set of haro megahubs back in the day that were 14mm female. I snapped a front and rear bolt. It all breaks just the same if you get crusty with it. I also ran pegs back then and we didn't wax anything up like folks do now. You had trouble sliding ... more »

For what it's worth I bought a Crux complete so it has removable mounts. Cost me $410 shipped to my door.

Chances are the Stranger will hail from Taiwan. That's where my Crux was manufactured anyway. I don't understand the brake mount thing either. You buy a frame, it should come with mounts. Then again, nowadays you pay more for a chrome frame than you ... more »

Hell, I'm on my 10th frame since 2012 (when i started having an interest in riding again). I've been on and off since. I think i've finally found a home on this BTM I just got.

I'm really digging on the hoder's. They are a little on the thicker side but shit's nice

Little Timmy probably will regardless. I'm no mystic but chances are little Timmy will probably take part in such activities. It's inevitable it seems.

Yeah, when i got into it I think the only options were different tt lengths. I don't really remember to be honest. I know they didn't give you the full specs like they do now. Then again riders weren't as critical I don't think.

Unfortunately BMX has been like this forever. It just didn't have an outlet quite like this before. I find it pretty entertaining. Everyone's feathers get ruffled too easily anymore. At the end of the day I do me and that's all I can do. Take everything ... more »

I think at this time you have the most options as far as geometry goes compared to ever before. I mean there's everything from trails to foot tall ledge jib machines to choose from. There's literally something for everyone. Plus with companies/brands ... more »

Haha are you actually comparing Adam22 to Macbeth or was that a stab at my view of things? Sorry, it's Saturday and I'm at work, brain's not functioning 100%.

A higher standover usually lends itself to a stronger more stable frame. Coupled with a low BB height you can pretty much get away with a steep headtube and a short back end without the bike doing a barrel roll when you give it the stink eye. Also, you ... more »

I don't really think shit like this is a big deal. As a kid I wasn't swayed by what certain friends or other riders were doing. I did me and they did them, simple as that. This is the same kinda shit that rappers, basketball, football players, etc. do ... more »

Most of the time if I show up, parents and small children leave pretty quickly. I've been told I have that effect on people. I'm really a nice dude though, assuming you're not a moose knuckle.

They look pretty identical to what animal akimbos would look like if they had a 24mm bb
