Added reply in a thread Does strength training help with BMX? 7/17/2018 8:27 PM

I noticed too that it is a lot of technique. I reached a point where I can't bunny hop any higher. Its good enough to get on a rail, but for something insane like bunny hopping onto the back of a truck or maybe more mild like ontop of a picknick table ... more »

Started new thread Does strength training help with BMX? 7/17/2018 8:06 PM

Things such as training for power 1 rep max fast as you can, or 1-5 reps max. I tend to withstand more impact if I take a dive, but would doing weighted squats technically improve the bunny hop? Or make it so you can pedal crazy fast 0-100 in a couple ... more »

Started new thread Whats the safest way to bail? 7/7/2018 3:16 PM

I think there has to be a better way out there to bail off a bike once you land wrong/about to crash. I've learned that keeping my elbows/knees bent slightly is much better than fully locking out my joints and stiffing up. Also I try to distribute all ... more »

Thank you guys for the help, I got the hop down and I'll just need to keep practicing the technique from there. I don't know if 2 inches counts. I still land heavy, especially with the front. I was practicing a lot yesterday and ended up hurting the ... more »

Thanks for the help, also I noticed my knees are hitting the stem and bars. Is it possible for a bmx to be to small for someone? I have 20'' tyres but a 19'' TT. I also hit the stem when I was doing a fakie.

I watched a ton of youtube videos, and people say this is the easiest trick to learn. When I was first starting to learn I had tons of pedal slips but that's because I was wearing 2-year-old shoes with no tread. After I got new shoes I learned how to ... more »

Stuff that sometimes isn't normally listed in bike specs unless your spending $300-$400 or more. I am a park rider, but I also have interest in dirt jumping and trails since those are available in my area. Just the trails may be a little bit too burly ... more »

Thanks for the help, On another note, just seen the legion up for $160 open box on amazon. Makes me wonder how much is costs to manufacture these things, since that was more than 40% off the retail price.

Kind of a dumb question, but is the compression cap on the left side of the crank reverse threaded? I'm trying to loosen it to free up the bearing, and its bending my multi tool from me putting almost all my weight on it.

maybe I am seeing it wrong, I measured the dropouts from each other and it came just under 4 and 1/2 inches. This was from measuring the outer edge of the dropout, I got around the same measurement on my other bmx fork. When I look at the fork legs it ... more »

The bolt keeps going in at a slight angle, and it is able to continue but will stop halfway in for both bottom and top. When I try to straighten it, the bolt won't want to go in at all. I've tried using other bolts and they all were able to go in, but ... more »
