a couple of months ago i bought a KONA BLAST mountain bike. i have recently started taking it down to the local skate park, not doing very dangerouse stuff but still fun. last week i fell off and twisted my rear derailleur, this means i have to buy a new one (£40) for my gears to work again. This made me realise that as i experiment more in the park i am gonna *** up my bike more and more.
So i thought i could buy a cheep BMX (around £50 prob of eBay) to take to the skate park and use my XC bike to travel around on and do off road trails.
Is this a good idea? Does anydody have any suggestions on makes i could get?
Also, i have ridden my friends BXM a litle bit and find it very different to my bike (obviousely) but i will not do some of the stuff i can do on my bike on it. If i buy one will i get used to it or will it be a waste of money?
