What embarrassing things did you do when you started bmx?

I used to not put my anti-spin bolts in the dropouts, so the pegs were always bent and pressed against the frame haha

When I first got metal pedals, I went up a roll-in to hit a box jump and when I tried to get off my feet stuck and I just slid down the ramp on my face.

Spent like $70 on a gyro setup and couldn't figure it out so I got rid of it. All I needed was $3 for a longer straddle cable (The one that came with the brakes couldn't go around the seat tube)

Same. And I'd ride my tires at max PSI all the time cause some people did it and thought it made rolling faster and whatnot. Then I took it too far one day and if you've ever seen the video where I took the aftermath of my still new FAF tire, then yeah, you know what I mean.

I did this. I switched my cranks around cause my sprocket bolt got seized in the cranks so I drilled it out & flipped my cranks around. They were those aluminum Odyssey phat black widow cranks for anyone interested haha. So I flipped them around to put my sprocket on and I have no clue how but I managed to thread my pedals in.. the left pedal was on the left side still but in the right crank arm, vice versa for the right pedal. Rode like that for awhile then my left pedal felt loose one day & I tightened it but nothing happened, so I super glued it -_____________-

didn't work & then I had my dad inspect the threads & he saw they were stripped. Not sure why the other arm's pedal boss never stripped though.

I don't know whether this is pathetic or awesome lol. Me & my friends made a chopper out of my old mountain bike & some shitty BMX parts we had laying around from our first completes. It was pretty boss lolages.

This wasn't me but when i first started riding there was a kid at our skate park with the longest BMX i had ever seen. Poor fucker couldn't afford to replace anything & he could barely ride the thing! Sooooo... We took the bars off, spun the stem round backwards & then put the bars back on facing forwards.it was pretty damned cool.

Its a shame, when all this happened Digital Cameras cost the earth & phone cameras didn't even exist! I'd love to find the Chopper but the guy that had it last turned into the biggest douche on the face of the earth & i haven't spoken to him in about 10 years!

Went to the skatepark and sat on my bike. Hate seeing people do this now.

I did all kinds of odd things. But it has been so long most don't really stand out.

I think the worst a buddy of mine did was rattlecan his WHOLE bike (tires, seat grips and all) a gross pine green. It was chrome.

this thread is gold lets keep it alive

My first real bike was a kink gap (still running frame cranks and wheels) and so I only looked at Kink parts, and my frame is/was blue. At the time, darryl tocco was running a blue version of his signature frame. (Btw i also only watched kink videos) so I thought i had the same frame as darryl tocco, when in reality i was/am riding a half chromoly stock frame

I had my forks on backwards because it made my bike feel twitchier, which I thought would help with 180's. I also used to tighten the side bolts on my stem first, then the compression cap, and had no idea why the front end was so loose.

My friend is rocking a Mirraco Chocolate. OK its not the highest quality Frame. Uncapped Wishbone, the Head Tube is drilled for Gyro Tabs then it has filler covering them up because the Frame is Brakeless. He likes it though, seems to ride quite well. I'm just waiting for it to fail miserably so i can convince him to get a BSD Forever, It has the same Geo, its just a shit load better!!

^i love the soundtrack to that game.

I still ask people a lot of questions sad I also ask the better riders to teach me shit on a daily basis.

I am such a noob i didnt even know that was unacceptable.
