I don't think I require an XXL bike, since I'm only 5'7" or 5'8", and maybe 145lbs? Now I'm thinking just going with another freestyle bike, to allow me to transfer parts, if needed. Can narrower, dirt-oriented tires fit on wider, freestyle rims? And ... more »

My race bike in '84 had a chromoly frame. Mind you, the tubes were narrower, and I'm sure it was lighter.

The geometry looked closer to a freestyle bike today, compared to the true race-bikes I see online. I wouldn't be looking to be super-competitive, ... more »

It would be for dirt track use, but if there is such a difference in the parts, it probably doesn't make much sense. I suppose I could just build another 'freestyle' type of bike with the parts, swap in some narrower dirt tires, a larger front sprocket, ... more »

Only because as I upgrade the parts on my other bike, I'll end up with extra parts. First will be the crank, then fork, wheels, etc. When I read about the dirt track, I thought I could start building a dirt/race bike with the extra parts.

Nice! I have been unsuccessful, thus far. One of my friends just got a mild road bike, and I said I would go riding with him, though keeping up may be a challenge.

Another friend said he might get a mountain bike. The problem is that none of ... more »

I just decided to get a BMX, having last rode one in 1985. I have always wanted to get one again, but kept putting it off. Having just turned 50, it seemed like the time.

I never really got into freestyle, but used to race at a nearby dirt ... more »
