Seems like you have the wrong mindset to ride. A lot of these younger kids nowadays watch all these videos online and think they can do all of it at a blink of an eye. Bmx takes a lot of patience and practice. If you're throwing your bike in anger then ... more »

Reply to FRONT BRAKES? 9/21/2017 3:19 PM

Yeah man it's a huge adjustment running two brake levers. I used to run front brakes and I've been itching to build something else with fronts. It's going to happen!

So awesome man! Cherish that bike

Very old thread but front brakes are a blast

Reply to Im not sure if i should carry on riding bmx 9/20/2017 8:11 AM

I'm in my 30's and started riding when I was around 7 or 8. Never became pro and endured injuries along the way. But I can say I've made a lot of my friends from bmx. Now that I have kids, I don't do half the crazy shit I used to but I still go out and ... more »

Ok so, a little update. I have been riding over 20 years so far. I've always been on a freewheel back then and cassette until now. I ended up purchasing this odyssey hazard lite/clutch freecoaster wheel for $80 just to see what a freecoaster would feel ... more »

Let's take baby steps! I have been experimenting with plastic pegs finally, running 4 pegs, and now going to try a freecoaster for the first time. Overwhelming hahaha

Reply to Don't know if I should pass up this deal 9/18/2017 4:23 PM

That's a possibility as well. I mean shit, it is a hazard rim

Reply to Don't know if I should pass up this deal 9/18/2017 3:18 PM

Well I ride street mainly and have always been on a cassette. Lately I've been tossing around the idea of trying a freecoaster for once. Saw this and figured it's a decent wheel at a decent price. I'm not hurting for money or anything it's just $100, ... more »

Reply to Don't know if I should pass up this deal 9/18/2017 1:20 PM

I was thinking the same about re selling it but to think of not running pegs makes me cringe! I grind a lot lol

Reply to how did you earn money and get parts when you were 14 9/16/2017 9:41 AM

I've been working since I was 6 or 7 years old. I worked in my grandparents custom furniture shop for years and then got my first legit job at 14 at a local grocery shop. And then continued on to where I'm at now. It's simple, work!

Reply to Bmx brand stereotypes? 9/16/2017 9:38 AM

Like whatever brand you want and ride whatever you want! I myself would never discriminate against anyone riding a particular brand. Just ride

Reply to Is higher psi always better? 9/16/2017 6:19 AM

Why laugh at it? Tire psi is all user preference. Some like a squishy tire because they don't want their wrists getting beat up. Some like higher psi to roll fast, park riders are a perfect example. Or a higher psi to prevent pinch flats. I myself have ... more »
