hm, what bike do you have?

i'm no pro or anything but i started with wheelies/bunnyhops then once you can hop decently start working on 180s and if you have trails/park start trying to be able to clear all the jumps then you can work on jumps to ur own preference.

but thats just me

Learn Bunnyhops. If you can't bunnyhop, BMX is pointless. Here's a really good website to help you with that:

Have you already got a bike? Cause if you're new, you generally buy a bike and 6 months later, when you're not new, you think, why the fuck did I buy that bike.

you'll probably need more than 200$. I'm pretty tight on cash too and i just bought a redline 1.2 for 275$. It's actually pretty good if you take off the detangler,chain guard, brakes, and replace the seat. Go with a redline they're cheap but not walmart cheap

dont get eastern if its cheap! they all have the same frames if they're the cheap eastern's and guess what? one of my friends not much heavier than me bent his frame at like a 45 degree angle before the forks so in ur price range no eaterns. general lee, although they're heavy, DK step up, somethin. dk's are ok for the price, i have a reldine 1.1 they're nice except the seat, stolen riot or pinch. idk learn how to bunnyhop, manual, learn to do jumps bigger and bigger. one handers, one footers, stuff like that. one fototers and handers are later

ur not going to get a bike that will hold up for shit for 200 bucks, might as well get 350-400$ and get something that's 'decent' that will uphold A LOT better. if u break a shitty 200 dollar bike in a month, ur gonna end up buying/replacing/buying a new bike for 200 bucks or more, and so now u've spent 400 bucks in a month or two when u could of orginially got a 400 dollar bike that will last a lot longer than 2 months.

i started wit a redline 3.1
and some tricks tht i lernd first was bunnyhops,manuals,and aftr i got my hops high enough i started to 180,tabletop,360 and wallrides are always fun

|

9/28/2008 8:11 PM

bunny hop, manual, barspin, wallride, 180 to riding backwards (fakie)

I'd say those are the basics to work at

ya dude for sure. redlines are cheap and they wont bend and brake just make sure those unsealed hubs stay gressed up or theyll go out easy but ya tose are nice bikes for the money at least the lower end ones are

they aren't cheap, they're in-expencive ! hahaha
ya, totally get a redline, they'll last a good time if you take some care of it... i ride the 7.1 and it's lasted 3 years so far, as long as you replace the tires... only problem that i've had so far.

wait so whats the big difference between the 1.1 and the 1.2? is there any besides the 1.2 being slightly more expensive?

|

9/29/2008 4:10 PM

not much, the 1.1 comes with 2 pegs, has straight cable brakes, a 36/13 gear ratio, and kenda tires, the 1.2 has 4 pegs, a gyro, 32/12 gearing, and redline freaky x tires. in my opinion the 1.1 is better because i hate the gyro and don't need 4 pegs

its the hardest thing to do(make a bmx part that will never brake) but if you got warranty throw it kick it bend it brake it but dont customize it warranty is there for a reason so u can get free things if it brakes

10/5/2008 5:23 PM

forget about what other people say, go ride and feel it out . express yourself freely and truly . you'll learn what you like and accel at !
