I haven't been on here in years because I sold my bike to go towards a car. Now that I'm on my feet I decided to buy another bike to get back into bmx again. I'm not up to date with a lot of the new parts on the market.

So I'm looking for pegs, tires, and possibly some new grips. What's some good products that I should get? I'm mostly gonna be riding street.

Thanks guys

While you were away, we all started ice riding. All the parts suggested are great for this, you'll figure it out.

Ha i remember you. Animal glh tires, animal team pegs, animal kocsis grips. Can’t go wrong with those. Also don’t buy anything from danscomp anymore. They dropped their whole team and almost went bankrupt and now they have terrible service and no parts actually in stock. They don’t support bmx so don’t support them, if you don’t have a local shop, order from powersbikeshop.com we got you

BSD Donnasqueak tires and S&m Hoder grips.

The Donnasqueaks are a great, grippy street and park tire, also could be used in dirt...

Hoder grips, they're thick, soft, and really comfy. When your hands sweat they dont slide and your hands still grip them well.

Highly reccomend both of those.

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

I ordered an Animal Broadway seat on Saturday from Powers and I see that it won't arrive until Friday. It's only traveling from VA to MD. Why does something like that take so long?

I can get parts from Able's in MI in three days or from Empire in TX in two days...

I tried other online shops; like you, I kept going back to Empire and Albe’s. They get it to my door in 3 days or less every time. I typically want to play with my ordered parts before the weekend! Empire and Albe’s understand that.

I want to give powersbikeshoo and Stacked bike shop a chance too though. Stacked’s IG and YouTube channel are rad.

Yeah, I try to spread the love but I'm a little confused by this latest purchase.

I can only assume it wasn't in stock and they haven't updated their website...?
