BMX track -- are you looking for a RACE bike? I assume you want to be competitive? Don't look at these heavy-ass street/park bikes everyone is recommending. Look at an 18" or 20" wheel micro race bike. Here's my daughter at 4-and-change on her GT micro.

3 year racer here with 3 kids who race. You start off as a Novice, you can't "clip in" until you hit Intermediate anyways (10 wins). There's no reason to rush into clipping in. Learn bike control on flats. It's worth buying a nice set of flat pedals ... more »

Added reply in a thread about how much do grips weigh? 10/30/2017 8:14 PM

ODI pro size lock-on grips are 123 grams (4.4 oz). Standard 20x1.75 tubes are about 100g or 3.5 oz. But those vary a lot.

Gotcha! Found this which says pretty much the same thing. Gives room but feels smaller.

I see. I'm reading about seat tube angle now. Says it moves the BB forward making it feel like a shorter TT. I need to find out what the the reason is versus just actually shortening the TT length.

Added reply in a thread Comparing WTP Trust, Crysis & Cult Devotion 10/28/2017 8:53 AM

I see. What's the purpose of tilting the seat tube up a degree towards the front? 71° is what most are. I know TT length isn't the end-all/be-all of everything.

FB Marketplace is full of morons like that too. See Brian Foster frame thread.

Is standover and seat tube height the same thing? Standover means something different on a race bike, in relation to how tall of a kind can literally stand over it. I've googled the bars but can't find definitive specs on them. I don't have another street ... more »

The other thread is getting off-track now, good time to split off my next question: Looking at mid-higher end 21" completes, I've kind of got it down to WTP Trust, WTP Crysis, and Cult Devotion. Not exactly the same price but close enough that the Trust ... more »

Added reply in a thread Looking at buying this Fit Brian Foster, can anyone help verify? 10/26/2017 8:01 PM

Yeah I'm sure it's a nice bike...not really my taste though and not $965 + shipping. Looking at WTP, Crysis and Trust are closely priced too to what I'm looking at, have to dig a little more into those.

I did ask if he repainted it because the color didn't look like the Fit BF that I could find.
