Ok so i know i have posted a thread about my new BMX Before, but this is pretty different - i was wondering what tricks it will be able to do...Photo

So i am basically getting this bike in a week or two, as you all know...and i am defiantly getting it, my parents wont really go back either...i can get a new one with my money in a year or two if i save...
I am new to BMXing, i mean, i can ride and go up and down ramps but thats pretty much about it!When and If i start getting good will this be ok!??Lile, will i be able to air out, footjam tailwhip, double peg grind and 180 stuff like that?This bike is only gonna be mine for a year or two, until i have like 6-700 maybe more and i can get a really really good bmx...Thanks.

it should be fine for the first year.. don't let it put you off riding!!. Buy yes, when you get decent it will seem SHIT and there is no doubt about that. but again, fine for what you want from it...

Dude,this is your third thread about this.

Mostly peaceful posting on vital.

Thanks Zach, I think its the sprocket size that kinda puts me off haha, but i guess it will be ok when i begin riding

dude, 33t isn't big. i have a mate running 42t and he has no issues (yet, he is a pussy when it comes to riding...).
Think about it. Tom Dugan rides 30-9 and has no issues on ramps etc, 3 teeth wont make that much of a difference.

7/10/2013 1:15 PM

I'd ride that bike so hard. I see nothing wrong with it for entry level riding.

RIde it and replace parts as it needs 'em.

|

7/10/2013 1:18 PM

Honestly I would wait and invest in a better complete.

That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. The bike doesn't do the fuggin tricks for you.

Why be the same when you can be different?

I have a fist of seatpost (roughly 5 inches give or take) and my seat doesn't go up there.

It's about TECHNIQUE.

Learn it and you can do whatever you want.

Oh, two more things:

WEAR A HELMET. PERIOD. If anyone says otherwise, they are being stupid risking their life. Don't believe it? I watched a friend 180 on FLAT GROUND, slip his pedal and hit his head. He had a SEIZURE, and was not prone to them. Scary moment. Just get one and wear it, reduces the risk a LOT. Not hard to do.

LEAVE YOUR BRAKES ON UNTIL YOU HAVE GOOD BIKE CONTROL. If you don't like em, don't use em. LEAVE EM ON SO THEY ARE THERE IF YOU NEED EM.

My bike does tricks for me pretty often.

I now have a more or less stock sunday scout with a complete Demo rear wheel. Sue me

It will be absolutely fine as a beginner Bike, the Bike is started on was much worse. I know plenty of people who started out on Bikes like this. I had a 33t up until Christmas. Tom Boorman has a 39t sprocket and is a boss at trails and bowls. Many other trails riders ride 36t Sprockets. I ride 28t

And listen to everything Dave Lawrence just said. I know someone who fractured their skull falling off on GRASS. He wasn't doing any tricks either.
I'll probably get flamed for this, but I bet if you learn how to work on Brakes then you'll probably never decide to go Brakeless.

I also have 5 inches of post showing.

7/10/2013 11:18 PM

Thanks, and by it doing tricks i meant will it be able to handle them -_-

also, Don't get ODI grips, they are shit.... i hated mine as they shredded my hand (even with super soft compound). Thus why i'm riding Snafu simple grips and they are amazing.

I have never had an issue with ODIs. My current set it a year and a half old. Super good.

Anything softer gets sticky and wears out too fast.

Little tip, if you are happy with your Bike and everything works, don't replace anything.

THIS.

Seriously, don't replace it unless it needs to be replaced.

A suggestion is to get the big blue book of bicycle repair from Park tool (or something like it) so you can learn how to repair things yourself. It saves money, and makes you more in tune with your bike, basically if something feels off, you will be less likely to ignore it, and you will have confidence in repairing it.

The reason I say that is because too many kids try to be funny and tell you wrong ways to fix things on here. An example, I saw was a guy who claimed greasing his cranks caused them to break. Not even close to a legit truth. Youtube can be a great resource as well. If you have questions, message me. I will get back to you as soon as I can.
