Hey, I've not been bmxing for over 6 years now. I've recently moved to Easton pa from afar and been thinking about gettin back into it. It's never too late eh..? I've asked a similar question already, but there anyone here that's from the area?? Like someone to ride. Bear in mind I'm 26 though and don't want to look like a dodgy guy Rodin with kids lol so maybe someone abit older also? 18+?ive got a bike from Craigslist, thought I'd buy a 2nd hand one for now to smash up and build one over time. Just need a tube and a chain. Any help etc on gettin back into it would be cool.

just don't push yourself too hard, my dad did and shattered his shoulder and 3 ribs but he is a bit older (not gonna say tho). But still go for it though

Well..... Better make that 7 years now! Ha! My bike lasted about a month.., then I had to get rid to get enough money up for some car that.... Is currently in pieces on the drive! Well, I'm about to go pick up anotger bike. It's a fit bf 2, '12. Anyone ride or rate them?? It's totally standard at tge mo and from what I know, they're a little weak and a little heavy. But I only need it to get a feel for riding again. Also, anyone tide in the Easton pa area? I'm 27 so don't really want to roll with tge 'kids' an' look like a raging pedo!

I just got back into bmx about a month ago after being busy with life for 9 years. I'm 32 y/o and cannot believe how quickly it all comes back; just got to go for it. Hope you find someone to ride with, good luck.

I was riding a 21" DK Legacy and just recently built a custom 21.5" S&M BTM which is about 7 lbs lighter and so much better in every aspect.
