I'm just saying those parts make a big difference compared to stock and will feel nicer. I dunno what parts you like.

I don't know what parts to get either.

Don't know what parts are highly rated among the community.

Your personal suggestions?

weight training on your kink. and see for sure if youre gonna enjoy bmx first before you go buying a custom bike. bikes are like cars, you never get back what you put in

This.

Honestly dude.Ride the crap out of what you already have. Most people who start out don't drop 1k+ on parts. You're new, just ride your bike. Learn how to bunny hop or something. Get a good feel for riding and what it takes to maneuver a bike. No offense, but at your skill level, what you have now is good enough. It's an entry level BMX bike. Put it to use.

Just because you've got money to blow doesn't mean you should start buying high end parts left and right. You'll learn the ins and outs about pretty much everything as you go along. The best knowledge gained is from first hand experience. As you break or out grow things you will learn more about replacement and preference. Now is obviously too early for you to know what your preferences really are. You seem tempted to spend a butt load on the nice things you see others riding. It's too soon... turn off the internet and ride your bike.

Idek.

I like Failure bars.
BSD/Eastern/Tree wheels.
Some 22MM 48 spline cranks.
Then get a United 22MM 48 spline sprocket.



That's just me thooooooooo. I probably would buy nothing haha.

I don't want a whole new bike...

You have $1100 to kill though.

But really it sounds like you know nothing about BMX so go learn on this bike before you blow a bunch of money on it. I hate when I see kids with awesome bikes and they can't ride

Who busts $1100 on aftermarket stuff......
Bro, ride what you got, then get what you need. After you break what you need, get what you want.
You can buy pimping clothes,take girls out almost anywhere, and buy what you want. I mean, use some on parts like tires, grips, pedals, pegs, maybe a stem and sprocket. Or buy a aftermarket complete. Don't build one.
