Reply to How to deal with people watching you practice tricks 1/1/2020 6:07 PM

They probably think you look rad. I was in Shanghai at SMPand had the park to myself. I was in the 20' foot tube thingy, not even close to airing it, and there was a tour group watching me. They took pictures. Doing anything on a bike looks cool to someone ... more »

Tighten the chain tensioners to get everything straight.. Tighten the bolts. Back off the tensioners 1/8 of a turn.

Reply to BMX Manual - The Beginning 8/6/2019 4:55 PM

in the beginning manuals were called coaster wheelies.... Also thanks for the tips folks. My front end is glued to the ground. It would take the gravitational pull of 10,000 suns to get my front end up.
Reply to Can’t fakie out of 180 8/2/2019 10:26 AM

Late, but in case anyone else has same problem: Your regular fakie may not be fast enough. Getting out of a 180 requires the speed of something like a hop fakie with front tire on the coping of a 6' quarter. That is the kind of speed you need to be comfortable ... more »

The seat post can be changed, it isn't part of the frame design. If you meant seat post bolt, they may have tweaked the design in later years to integrate it. here you can see the rear end and the downtube gusset.

Reply to How to Build a Trail Wood Bridge 6/7/2019 11:15 AM

Thats impressive. What was the time effort for the dirt bank parts? We have some wood trails that are fast flat clay but need some berms to really rip.

Reply to 16" Tyres 6/4/2019 9:55 AM

16" is actually the distance to the outside of the tires, not the rim size. So a fatter, taller tire will do what you want. If he is running 1.5- 1.75 (typical race width) and moves to a 2.125" he will gain about .75" in diameter. It will be a little ... more »

Get the Redline and ride with you kids. Pro bmx'ers are 6'+ 200+ and ripped. They generate huge power and take massive jumps. They don't spin in the air, to the bikes aren't meant to take high side forces. But straight ahead, over the whoops, you will ... more »

I thought the wallride tail tap on the parking curb at around 2:15 was nice too. That last trick though. He doesn't do what you think he's going to do...
