Took my BMX out over the weekend both Saturday and Sunday. I have recently moved so spent my time exploring the new area. Practiced jumping gutters, bunny hops and some hill bombs. Also found a dirt track near my place which was fun.

Welcome to BMX! Definitely a good choice of BMX for getting back in to things. As others have said, take it easy to begin with, get used to the feel of the bike and most of all have fun out there!

I’ve got a bad knee from a running injury, I found getting back in to BMX was much easier on my joints. Take the bike out a few times a week if you can, will build up your endurance and you will get used to it in no time!

Nice work getting down to the skatepark. I’ve been meaning to head down too, just haven’t had the time yet. Did you go early to dodge the crowds?

Rest up dude, BMX will be there for you when your ready again. Hoping for a speedy recovery!

My shoulder was out of action completely for 2 weeks or so. I literally couldn’t lift anything heavy. I was back on my bike in a couple of months and started doing light tricks again from about the 4th month. Probably fully recovered about month 5 or ... more »

Ah that sucks dude, hope you have a speedy recovery. I can sympathise having dislocated my left shoulder when I was younger on my BMX. Hope the surgery fixes it long term for you too, hang in there, BMX ain’t going anywhere and you will be back on your ... more »

I picked up a WTP Trust 2019 FC late last year. Have taken it out multiple times per week since, still and it rides great. So far holding up well. SALT and ECLAT parts have a good reputation too, so the bike should last you quite a while.

Sounds like a good plan, 2019 models should be on sale too so can save some $$$

Sweet bike bro, really dig the colour. How do you like the ride compared with a 20?

Added reply in a thread Getting into BMX at 48 12/25/2019 5:45 AM

Yeah there’s plenty of people getting back in to things, myself included. I may have also convinced a few mates to dust off their BMX bikes too haha. Keen to hear if you picked up a new bike yet scalesj

Quick update, the bike arrived on Monday afternoon. Very happy with the purchase experience from Lux. Due to work and family commitments, I only had the chance to take it out for a proper ride after work today.. Wow what a differnce the new bike makes ... more »

That’s good to hear, nice and quick delivery. Yeah that’s a good point, I wasn’t sure how much I’d have to assemble so went with that option, but for next time maybe not if it’s only a half hour. Wouldn’t mind a bottle of bourbon, it’s been a long day ... more »

Good to hear dude, I’ve only ever heard good things about them too. Plan to keep it a while so glad they hold up.

Well, I pulled the trigger and ordered the WeThePeople Trust FC 2019. Thanks for all your inputs, I’ll be sure to report back when it’s been delivered. Now the hard part, the waiting game...

I’ll be purchasing from Lux too, they were one of the shops I was speaking with. Service was by far the best. Also $60 shipping for everything dialed in, only have to fit the front tyre and pedals. Can’t go wrong with that!

Added reply in a thread Getting back in to BMX - Advice 12/11/2019 4:04 AM

Yeah that’s what I’m thinking too, it’s got additional features for the same money so I think I’ll go with the Trust. Good to hear the lower end one rides smooth too.

Ok guys have spoke with some bike shops, based on my height 21” frame looks like the best option. So I’ve narrowed it down to a couple of bikes that were recommended based on size and budget: WeThePeople Trust FC 2019 ($200 off price) Cult Devotion 2020 ... more »
