color is all personal preference, you might as well be asking us what cereal to eat. My opinion is get bright purple (so they stick out more) pedals, grips, and sprocket, and a white seat

idk, that is also personal opinion, everybody seems to like ODI's, but i prefer Fit Techs or Cult Chase D's. It depends if you like ribbed grips or not

i would recommend any of these, but you should try a few, find some grips you love, since grips are nice and cheap

color - personal preferance
grips - odi's are a bitch on your hands in my opinion. id go with either animal edwins or shadow conspiracy ol dirtys or odyssey team grips.

yeah thanks, i like the ol dirtys- flangeless, or not?

All time favorite grips are the fly Rubens. Super soft and have a cut line if you like flangeless.

|

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.

Mine wore pretty quick and started to hurt my hands. I just went back to ODI's and they're great so far.

Would white really look good on a black bike with just purple grips and hubs???

I say you should get fire engine red or matte red, cause in the dark it makes your bike look like a cartoon, its effin awesome

Never mind Yup you know what, I am a retarded pussy who goes on BMX-Forum that's touching myself and should have gotten a Kink Liberty or sanded down my own stem or bars, but I'm not sure which one because I am a noob.

Now you know me.

I wouldn't get white. Not only will it not go with your bike, but if you have dirty hands from eating shit or building trails, then it goes onto your grips, and then you have to wash them with water, which then puts your grips at risk of getting throttle grip.

I'd get some Animal Edwins. I bought my 4th pair today. I have never ran ODI's, so I can't tell you if they are any good, but Edwins are very very good, comfy and long lasting.

With the seat, just get a black seat, and get a purple seat post when you need a new one, or spray the one you have at the moment. Don't over-do your bike with colours, or it will look shit, and nobody wants a shit bike.

That seat it pretty legit. It has a purpley look to it, so it will look nice with purple hubs. Plus it is the signature seat of a hero and made by one of the best brands out there. Also, it's very cheap at the moment.

And these grips, because they are simply awesome.

how much money do you have to spend? if youre new to bmx and youre not sure what grips to get then pick 2 grips to buy. there not that expensive. then pick which ones u like best and give the other ones to a local that needs them.
