thought it would be funny to hear what bad advice you guys have been given about anything bmx


For me it would probably be when the guy at my LBS told me i needed half link chain to ride freestyle because a full link chain wouldn't allow me to accelerate fast enough and would be too heavy.

"Pro bikes have small sprockets and walmart bikes have big sprockets. If it has a small sprocket, get it." Or skateboarding, "If the deck is con-caved, it's a pro board, even though it says mongoose on it."

Not really advise, but those are things I've heard.

I took a rim to shop to get trued and they told me "this rim will never be strait again. That's what you get for buying double wall rims, they suck. You need to get some alex triple walls. They are the new standard. " this was only last year, the shop ruined my rim too.

^Those are the dumbest things that I've heard.

One time I kept messing with this one kid trying to tell him that 360s were barspins and barspins were 360s and he said "No dude! You don't know your tricks!" and I said "What do you mean? I eat Tricks for breakfast everyday! I know my Tricks!"
