Perhaps you misunderstand my intentions. I want you to succeed, simply for the sake of pushing the sport. But Ricky has a working bike and you have a list of parts that may or may not comprise a functional bmx bike. Good luck with your endeavors

It’s all subjective but in my opinion a beginner would be better off picking a bigger frame (appropriate to their size of course). Smaller tech frames feel squirrelly when you’re starting off and you don’t have bike control. Also a bigger frame is a ... more »

I've never seen anyone look good on a 22", they might be fun to ride but they make your movements look clumsy imo

Ever since I saw skateboarders airing out of a half pipe as a kid it just seemed like the coolest thing ever to me. Launching yourself into the air in a controlled graceful manner - man, it can’t be beat. Anyways, I always rode street (not very well) ... more »

Added reply in a thread Opinion on wearing helmets? 9/29/2020 11:40 AM

I prefer cruising around without a helmet but I shred harder with one on. Gives me more confidence to send it. Other pads keep me from getting banged up as much so i can ride more. Maybe not an issue for the younger riders but for the 30+ crowd we don't ... more »

Added reply in a thread Can we please talk about why there are still no good BMX games out there? 9/27/2020 2:40 PM

Skateboarding and soccer have low entry costs. Kids don’t ride bmx much because it’s expensive, so there’s not much demand for a bmx video game.
