Photos etc would help showing dropouts, headtube, BB area any markings and any gussets etc as there is not really a database for serial numbers. If it is older (as in a decade + or older), bmx museum would be a solid help.

Trailboss is my go to, but Mirra 2 will has always been one of the best out there. Hoping that some of these "in development" games and/or BMX PIPE make it to the Switch.

Added reply in a thread Best gloves for winter (EAST COAST WINTER) 12/3/2019 4:13 AM

Check out some snowboarding gloves too-Dakine (not sure if they even exist anymore) had some really good full-finger gloves for snowboarding that were well insulated etc, but also thin enough to grip well. Otherwise check out some winter commuting type ... more »

Measure a bearing. If the bearing is 3/4 of the way in or more, I would bet it will be ok. Grease the bearings and the frame where they sit before you install them.

Clean it before you assemble it more though.

Agreed. Just gotta send it (to some extent) if it is something you had before.

Just dealt with a 5 day blizzard. Gonna be a while before I get out on a bike. ALTHOUGH if we get some warmer days I have decided I will take my snowblower and a shovel out to the local free park and clear it off.

48's were rad, but unnecessary weight etc for most riders. If you are landing sideways all day long and trying whips and slamming your wheel sideways on the ground, then yea, you would want 48s. Although a well built set of 36's would take that and likely ... more »

My guess is that MANY parents just toss computers/tablets/phones/video games etc at kids and don't monitor what their kids are up to on those devices, so they can get away with a LOT more. The internet became SO MUCH more popular with Youtube, Vimeo ... more »

Honestly I have been at it the last 20 years, and noticed the things I listed hit SO MUCH more in the last decade VS the first decade.

I think the lack of individuality is something that is lacking these days. Everyone dresses the same, sets their bikes up the same, rides the same and acts the same. The internet is good and bad for BMX too. Good for getting footage out, and seeing footage/content ... more »

This is rad of you! (Personally I would snag up a couple tubes or something with it if I was in your shoes). I did not use it, but it is winter and I don't need anything currently.

So this thread/poll happens, and I'm the one who can't let it go? Guess I struck a nerve with my logic, huh?

Added reply in a thread Seatpost Extender 11/27/2019 6:55 AM

There's no "fact" in your opinion on what BMX bikes are designed for, because, after all, you do not speak for the people who came up with BMX bikes, nor were you a part their original design, and you don't design them currently. FACT. People have been ... more »

I was in my first serious year of riding and did manual (pull up as the kids call em now) barspins all over the place. Hit a dirt table and hucked em. Had em consistent pretty fast.
