what really matters nowadays? frames are getting lighter and lighter.. technology is improving and frames are becoming far too expensive for a lot of people to afford.. more frames are breaking, cracking, bending and even snapping.. personally i'd rather have a 5.4 lbs fram than a stupidly light frame that won't last me a month.. which way do you think bmx should go? Weight or strength?

I'd go for a frame that would last me at least 1-2 years. I wouldn't mind a weight reduction though.

Go pump some weights. I like having some weight underneath me. Ive swapped out parts for heavier ones before just to get some more weight.

such a bull shit topic thats discussed every day. not all light parts are easy to break, most heavy parts are made of shitty materials.

yeah i agree, im quite hard on parts anyway but you know what i mean? you get kids that have been riding for like 6 months and cracking frames haha but yeah lighter frames are easier to ride i'll give you that!

Thats why i buy a lot of my stuff off ebay. I buy last years or even a couple years ago parts. For mad cheap too. I got the primo double guard sprocket and that thing is literally twice as thick as my kink was.

I would rather have strength. Grow up riding 30 pound bike weight means nothing to me

you can't really compare the two because some parts are just lighter because of newer machining techniques and innovations without compromising strength a single bit...so saying a part is more reliable because it's heavier just doesn't make much sense...it's all in the manufacturer you choose to buy parts from.

titties and beer > everything

I would rather have strength if I had to pick but most parts I get are both
