Hi people of Vital. Wanted to ask a quick question.

I am going to be fixing up my BMX as I haven't ridden it in months as my cheap stock hub gave up on me. I'm needing new spokes and grips. I was looking online and found some Halo Aura Spokes on eBay. I wanted to know if they good or should I buy some different ones? I will be using them with Gsport Hubs and be using the nipples that come with them so I can start riding again.

Also wanted to ask what are some good grips to buy? I currently don't have any on my BMX so wanting something nice. I have tried a few different ones but nothing stands out to me at the moment.

ODI are too sticky. Same with Cult Vans. Can't remember what else I've tried...

I have added a link below of the HALO spokes.

Merritt cross checks are awesome, plus the bar ends are indestructable

Never heard of those spokes. I recommend the merritt cross checks as bmxsteve said he recommended them to me and I love them.

Halo is a reputable wheel brand, but I recommend going to empire bmx for spokes.

Stolen team? Maybe stranger quans? Odi makes harder versions of grips i think... but not sure


"haha, did you steal that bike? hurhrhrurhurr" "no, fuck you thats just the brand."

I got the demolition axes grips and they are soft I like it.


You say BMX is your life but you barely ride.
BUT hey, That's none of my business.
