Hey guys. Just chiming in here, 31 years old, just got thrown off pinkbike, and I hit my first jump as a wee lad in 1987 on a 30 pound bike with mag wheels and dia comps. I hope vital will be a better fit.

Welcome to Vital Matt! I wish you the best with your surgery and hope you have a speedy recovery and are able to start shredding soon. I just started back up last February after being off the bike for far too long. I've been having fun learning how to ride park and street, and just enjoying learning stuff I couldn't do as a kid. With your proximity to Chicago and Rockford, you've got a pretty good scene down there and I'm sure you'll find some good people to ride with. Good luck, and cheers!

Hey guys, I just been thinking about getting back on the wheels lately also, getting tired of seeing my poor bike rust away outside on the patio, think im gonna rip it apart for old times sake and maybe upgrade all those parts that i never could afford when i was younger.

Been checking out the forums here a bit the last week or so and trying to see where the current state of things is, does look a bit annoying with kids and weight nazis and the like, but not much different then we were kids, just new generation of brats i guess.

The only surprising thing i seen so far was those new (at least new for me) hubs that can go backwards, like some sort of centrifugal clutch or something, that was neat. otherwise searching through here and danscomp etc. doesn't seem like too much reason to buy new stuff. ill prob pick up a new chain, a new brake lever that i had broke a while back, and possibly new brake cables, maybe do a paint job. otherwise ill break it down, get all the rust and paint off, repaint it, lube the bearings in the gyro, headset, crank, just take my time and enjoy it, hopefully be riding pretty soon....

i'm 40 and have been out of the loop since i'm 17.. do the math lol! now i just got my two sons (13 and 10) their own bmx bikes off some bike store in my country, pre-built. both are 20-inchers.. so you can just imagine that the components are mostly crappy. as for me, i am now contemplating on building my own bike again and start riding with my kids and maybe relearn my old tricks and show it yo them. my problem now is that there are a lot of variations now when it comes to parts.. cassettes? what the fuck is that?! 25 teeth crank?! oh boy! i grew up and learned to ride and jump on one-piece cranks .. and my idols were matt hoffman and josh white.. oh and cru jones lol!

some store clerks are offering me a steal deal on mountain bikes. so i said to him, "what the hell am i gonna do with that?!" tsk!

BTW, my kid wants me to put a basket on his bike.. OMG!

so, the bottomline here is I want to welcome myself to this thread and to the forum :-D

Well right off the bat, for me personally, I'm about 40lbs heavier, more joint injuries and 1/16 the core strength than I had 20 years ago when I was hardcore in to riding. Now I have more body to throw around and less fitness to do it! ;-) LOL

.... but it is no less fun than it ever was!! I'm having a blast again and very grateful for double walled rims and top tube lengths 20" and longer! ;-)

Just got back into riding about 2 weeks ago..All started with a diamond back 24 cruiser spotted on craigs list..I picked it up for a 100.oo bucks..My 17 year old daughter jumped on it and really liked it so the next day I got her a 24 haro..That started a viscous cycle that im now consumed in..a few days later I bought a mirraco 2040 and sold the db the my buddy..That weekend said buddy and I put 26 straight miles on our cruisers in a matter of a couple hours..Im about 2 weeks into this bike bender and im the proud owner of a stolen score and a mirraco blend also..Frickin house is lookin like a damn bike shop.lol..Im really diggin the new style bmx parts..Those little sprockets were a mind fuck for me for a while but I settled into them real well.The bars on the 2040 had to be upgraded so I scooped up a set of eastern 7.25 rise..Its good to be back ridin like a kid again..Thrash on guys!!

Fellers!
I've replied a few times on this post and am a lot like all you guys.
48 here and with a jump box in the yard...that I would hit a lot more if I was 28! LOL
I took some time and wrote a book called "The Average BMXer", which chronicles what I went through as the average every day rider in New Jersey doing his thing in the early days...up to about last year.
I tried to tell "our story" of the normal dude riding who was never a superstar but loved what they did...
I have it on lulu.com as an epub and kindle, it's also a hardcover but it's mad expensive.
If anyone is looking to waste some time reading...this is where you can find it.

Hey, fellas

Glad this thread was on here. I have been wanting to get back into BMX once again and figured I'd come on here and see what's going on.

I am 29, started riding when I was 14 or so and rode until I was about 19 or 20. I pretty much always rode street because there was no parks near me. Joined the Army and went to riding a 26" eastern when I was about 23. After that I got my self a couple full suspension bikes and did the trail thing but other than being good cardio I was never super into it.

I have pretty much always stayed somewhat up to date with the trends and what not. I plan on finding either a newer custom off craigslist or I might get myself the 2015 Fit Aiken 2 gold.


As far as all the trends and what not, that is something that has been in BMX for the last 15 years at least. However, like many of you guys already mentioned it seems a bit segregated now which is a bummer. That is to be expected though as the sport is evolving and getting more popular.

I absolutely love the newer style of bikes. When I left for the Army the whole light weight thing was starting, it was annoying at first but I saw the benefits of it and I learned to love it. And as far as brakeless and what not that has been around since I started back in 1998-99 so that doesn't bother me one bit. I plan on going brakeless with my new ride even in my old age.

My first real bike was a Hoffman Taj, with slam bars, redneck stem, alex triples, etc and I rode brakeless my entire life, not for weight savings or because it was cool. I did it because brakes were expensive for a 15-16 year old, and I was broke from buying all the other parts. And it was just something else to break or have to maintain so it just simplified everything.


I just laugh when us older guys bash how stuff is evolving. It reminds me of old people talking crap about rock n' roll.
"you whipper-snappers and your devil music!" You can't legitimately complain about how everything is so separated and then talk crap about new school riders.
You guys just need to adapt and evolve with the sport or be stuck in old days. There is nothing wrong with wanting to experience the nostalgia of your BMX days but I am sure when you were younger, older people were looking at you thinking the exact things you are thinking about the new school riders. Just be happy that the sport is thriving now and didn't die off like rollerblading lol.


With that being said, I still enjoyed reading all the posts from all the old guys. It definitely made me feel a little more comfortable coming back into the sport. Even though I am old and broken now I have dreams of one day being able to do at least a couple cool tricks. I will settle for some bunny hop bars, tailwhips on flat, flat 360s and getting back my manuals.

My son is turning 3 soon and I hope to get him started early on BMX so that way we can ride together.

By the way I am in AZ so if any of you older guys are in the PHX area I will be down for a ride.

40yrs old, just bought a Diamondback Element. 22yrs+ of not riding and my last bike was a DP Firebird Freestyler. I got the Diamondback for a bit of fun and fitness, and apart from the low seat post height these days (so no sitting down unless you’re stopped) I’ve no complaints about geometry or build quality. Blasting about on BMX is tons more fun then any work out at a gym next to a load of zombies on treadmills, but I am already noticing its pretty tough on my older knees though, compared to when you’re a kid and indestructible!

Wow I can't believe Im considered a older rider!! WTF happened. I run a 24" Felt Brink. I wish I could find some 48h rims for it. I do run plastic pegs for 4 years now and no problems, I tried to run plastic pedals but they are no good, Im back on medal ones

One thing I wanna bitch about is the disrespect the younger riders have for the sport. When I was a kids, my friends and I went down to the city hall and fought for the skatepark to be put in. We didnt get to ride it untill i was 25 years old. Now these young punks destroy the park and disrespect it, breaking bottles tearing off ramps and rails. They dont know what it is like to have to build stuff! And no one wears gear!

I'm 49 and have been riding something all my life. Motorcycles, atv's, snowmobiles, skateboards, just love to ride. Been riding a lot of mt.bikes the last few years and my grandson just got into racing so I bought a mid 90's Dyno 24 and a Free Agent Limo 24 to cruise at the track with him. Not a fan of low seats, old folks need to sit down and decades old knees don't like to bend that far No brakes has got to be the stupidest thing ever thought of by mankind, I guess the newer generation is missing a chromosome somewhere. Been trying to find a Super Goose like I had back in the day but they seem to be very rare anymore. Headed out to the track right now for some practice...

I'll be thirty in November, and last month I just got my old joey Garcia automatic comp Schwinn rolling again. I'm dying to get back into riding again, its been about 12-15 yrs since I rode hard. It still feels natural when I ride but its gonna take awhile to get it fully back.

what pisses me off is that they almost stopped making 14mm front hubs, they're all weak 3/8 now just because they want to save a little weight. i've bent to many axles before i got my macneil 14mm front hub but they stopped making that too

I'm still Actully running my hazard triple wall In the front. I'm on a mission to find a lighter front wheel with 14mm axle. I am blown away on where things have gone I never thought it would be so hard to find. Oversized axle and 48h wheel setup.

I guess I'll check in....33, here. Getting back on a BMX because my 3 year old is into biking now (well, he's into anything with wheels). He rips around on a strider and we're looking to probably get him a proper 12" bike soon. I rode for 17 years, and then my bike got stolen. Tat was 7, maybe 8 years ago now! At the time, I was in college and literally rode that bike everyday to school, work, bars...fricken everywhere, every day! It was a custom built bmx, pretty much all S&M and Profile parts on a decent frame that I got for free on a warranty issue with a previous bike (snapped a head tube off an aluminum Trek on a 6' spine...no good). My brother is pretty much a Pro MTB/Cyclocross rider out in CO, so he had his sponsor at the time (Specialized) hook me up with a new MTB for pretty much nothing. I tried and tried and tried to ride that thing for a couple years, and it just always felt like maneuvering a semi. Then it basically sat up in the rafters of the garage for a couple year....until I sold her for a cool $250 this summer!

I picked up a new 2014 Fit Dugan Sig back in July on a good deal from the LBS. Took a good 2-3 hours at the shop and they let me try out all the top line of bikes they had, and I just couldn't get on board with the high/wide bars and short rear ends! Loopy as all hell. The '14 Dugan Sig has a 13.8 chainstay, front load stem and normal-ish rise bars (which I promptly cut down to 27.5" width)....much much more comfortable for this old trail rider! I ordered up a pair of pegs and hub guards from S&M....shout out to Sean McKinney and Gabe Weed for the hook up!

I have access to skid steers, backhoes, loaders and a dump truck now...so building new trails will be a lot easier once this kids are a bit older!

^build a pump track.. The kids will be able to ride it and you'll get back into bicycling shape on it. (you'll probably smile once or twice, too)

trails rule.

I was thinking of starting with a good size pump track, with doubles and triples...spaced right so they can easily be built up into real sets when needed. I'm also partial to welding and generally building shit, and have a hook up at the local high school fab shop (which is pretty amazing by the way, as-in professional college+ level equipment, huge benders, mig/tig, blasting, CNC plasma and machines, etc.)....so I was thinking of maybe making some kickers with steel frames and wood/plywood surface. Dirt lips tend to get thrashed here in our Wisco winters and I was thinking these would maybe fair better?

I've not sold myself on the fabbed kickers...something about dirt lips...I can here the sound of tires launching off them in my head. I do have a perfect balcony on the 2nd floor of the house, that would make a great drop-in, but wifey ain't impressed with my ideas for that!
