I want to know it alright to have a bmx bike or build a customs but not to spend that much on a customs bike and don't do any tricks. Because I know people buy parts and do tricks and some parts break then they buy more me I kinda want to do tricks and I kinda don't want to do tricks could I have a custom bike just to ride.

What's the point of BMX if you don't ride BMX with it?

To be honest I don't know why because I try to do bunny hops but i can't do them. Or any basic tricks. I know you have to get your basic tricks down before doing the big tricks like 180s.

Ok well I'm kinda scared that I might fall it might take me longer time to learn tricks. But I will try and not give up if I fall then I fall then I get back up.

Exactly. If you ride BMX plan on falling. And you wanna talk taking a while to learn, i am in year 4 and i just learned 360s. Personally I think you will end up a better rider if your first year all you do is work on bike control, not tricks.

I have good bike control. Do you need muscle to do any tricks I'm pretty skinny I did bunny hops for the first time my arms was hurting the next day is that good or bad.

If you have the money get whatever you want. Who cares what anyone what thinks. Just because you can't do tricks you have to have a shit bike? As for you other kids, just because you can do tricks doesn't mean you deserve a better bike. Get a damn job and buy the bike of your dreams and fuck off.

Whats the point of having a bike specifically designed for tricks if youre not going to use it for that? Why not just build a nice cruiser? Something made for comfortability and transportation.

Practice. Don't expect instant results.

Most of the kids on here have been riding for months if not years and aren't pros.

Hell, I have been riding for 14 years, STILL have not done a legit street handrail.

I have a 2013 kink gap. I like to ride but I'm going to practice.

Yes, I have a BMX I got secondhand to mess around on in my mid-life crisis. I'm not brave or skilled enough to do tricks.
It's a good bike for doing massive skids on the grass because I know it's not going to break given a minor level of abuse. Also I don't mind letting teenagers ride it and showing off their skills, I don't want them riding my hybrid as it's too breakable (derraleur gears, 27" wheels etc). However, BMX's are not the ideal bike for riding long distances especially as you get older and less supple as they aren't very ergonomic.

Buy what you want man. Anybody who takes the piss out of you for having all the gear but no idea is usually either jealous or self conscious. I used to feel self conscious about riding a high end custom BMX in parks surrounded by people far better than me on lower end bikes, but I loved how it rode and I had been riding for a long time, just not improving much grin

Mountain biking is a prime example. I see so many old dudes on £5000 electric downhill bikes going super slow, but it's their money and they're out riding when they might otherwise not be.

If you're literally just going from A to B get a. Walmart bike if you have the money to build a custom fuck it go for it but don't be surprised when you get called a poser by the people doing tricks lmao

Just make sure you have a kickstand , some reflectors and a good brake system , don’t want thinks to get out of hand

10/27/2018 3:49 PM

Of course you can.. Do you think all those bald fat guys that buy ferraris and have a trophy wife use either to their full advantage.. Hell no.. Its all for looks.. at least try bunny hop stuff, just riding is quite boring.
