    front end weight

    is there such a thing as the front end of a bmx bike being too light compared to the rear?

    If more weight is biased to either end, your bike will be unbalanced. This may make some tricks, or even jumping. somewhat trickier.

    Theres is one benefit of a too light front end. You can rip alot of wheelies and manuals.
