Subscribe to dans comp(do they still send out mags?) They have an awesome selection of bikes, movies, parts, everything you want. Franklin bicycle is good too. I'm sure they're all online now as well.
If you're in the northeast and want a free bike, think it might be missing a few parts like the wheel etc, you can have it. Free agent flying fortress. Good frame, decent enough bike from 15 years ago. HAsn't been ridden in a long time, I know the frames good, trying to think what's misseing, think there are bars and forks on it but not 100% sure.
It's in NY at my parents. I might be going back for a week or two in a couple months though.
I can't really help much with brands as I've been out of the game for a while and everything has changed.
Also fuck brakeless because fufanus are the shit and nothing is funnier than kids who can't manual 2 feet but think they're awesome because they're riding brakeless. MAybe run into a few things because they don't know how to stop lol.
crotchventThanks for the offer not in the northeast though and riding brainless just sounds idiotic.
cydwhitI would really say go with a cheap used DJ bike. Way more versatile, not that much more expensive, and once your find out that BMX is extremely hard you can still rip urban/DJ/trails with it. A BMX bike is like a 80mm underfoot, stiff, fully cambered park ski. A DJ is like a 100mm underfoot, rockered, playful all mountain/park ski IMO. Then again, this is coming from the guy who wrecked himself trying to be a rad BMX kid for way too long and then switched to DJ and then to DH and then to Enduro
byuboundI dunno about that. I had a dj bike for a long time, then switched to a slope bike and am adding a bmx to the fleet soon. OP, are there trails at all in your area? If you are primarily riding dj, park, and street, bmx is much easier to learn on because of how playful they are. Yes, dj bikes are a little more forgiving but I really don't think it's worth it on flowy jumps or Park considering how much more expensive it is.
I wanna get in more to bmxing this year.
I have some experience, good(for not riding much) bhops, can do 180s etc. ride ramps kinda, you now, basic newb shit.
So, im in the search of a bike, but dont wanna put shittons of money and get the cream of the crop, wanna go like halfway right now.
Info: Mainly street, Im 189cm(6'2.5") 91kg(200lbs)
