I was reading up on this recently and send like there's a lot of people that feel 28/9 is the sweet spot. I've been looking for a guard sprocket and came across a good deal on a 33 tooth. I decided to pass though since wisdom says it puts too much stress ... more »

Are you sure you want to go brakeless on your first BMX? I'm tempted to start a thread on this subject. I'm sure context is everything. A straight park bike where you haul the thing from garage to park in your has guzzler is easier than a full on street/commute ... more »

I just saw a street bike @ 20.25" described for riders up to 5'4". I think racing geometries are quite different though.
