Im new2 to bmx
 
I have a 2003 Redline Recon and its set up for street, vert, and dirt and I was hoping to make some new friends in the 325 area and learn some new tricks and tips for my bike if anyone wants to see a pics of my bike just email. Also some instructions on how to add pics to my threats and forums would help.

what was the point of you voting that your bike is good

Darkdevil_John 08-02-05 01:21 PM

First of all I dont know how to identify a good bike only thing I knwo aobut this bike is that it was built good with good geometry and heavy dropouts on it only true think I can say about the bike was it was built for the reallky big guys to ride bmx on

the term "good bike" is relative. if your just starting out you won't be able to tell the difference between different bikes. so I say your bike is good if it works like a bike.
1. has tires that hold air
2. brakes work somewhat
3. when you pedal, the bike goes forwards.
4. etc....

the more time you spend riding your bike, the better bike rider you will become. then you can start to understand what parts will work best for the type of riding you are doing.

a bike is only as good as the person riding it. don't worry about what other people say about your bike. just get out and have fun on it.

well i have some bmx experience but none that has anything to do with tricks other than the stander trick wich is probly something at any 5 year old can do but i would really like to know what i could do to it to make it smoother for instance i set the front tire up prefectly but the back tire when spinning still tries to turn the crank a little and will turn the crank aobut a 1/3 of a turn then stop and turn again what do i need to do to fix this so the crank wont move when the back tire is spinning

Amen Beerman, teach these mofos a lesson in English. People of the forum its time to get HOOKED, on Phonics!

pnj 08-02-05 05:53 PM

beermans alright.....

john, try to maybe lube your chain. without more info, it's going to be hard to help.
but,why does it matter if your cranks spin? if your feet are on the pedals, they won't spin. if your trying no footers, hit your back brakes for a sec and it will stop your rear wheel...

Darkdevil_John 08-02-05 06:03 PM

Thanks pnj if it will help i im trying mostly in vert and dirt and you knwo how many tricks need your pedals to be still so you can land the trick. Ive tride a no footer on it and the pedals moved well i think you know what happened on the landing. Anyways thanks for the tip if you have any more info on what else I could do to fix the problem just email:darksege725@sbcglobal.net

FireTeamCharlie 08-02-05 06:53 PM

Simple solution tighten up your crank a little. If you chain has loss the 1/4 flex loosen your chain.

"The Way of the Samurai", surely. And, sorry, but I'm a bit too busy reading Marcus Aurelius' "Meditations" right now to do that.

FireTeamCharlie 08-02-05 07:11 PM

I should probably read one of them books. When I was riding my Fuji girls bikes, the tire shifted and I wound up swearing up a storm, and almost killing someone.

Darkdevil_John 08-02-05 08:53 PM

k fire i just tightened it up but left it a little loose so i would have to use less effort to turn it and its working great thanks for the tip

FireTeamCharlie 08-02-05 08:58 PM

:-), Also I was looking on google for info about your bike. I hope your not running the original 1pc crank cause that'd just be moronic.

zx108 08-02-05 09:14 PM

i am running a one peice crank :rolleyes:

Darkdevil_John 08-02-05 10:12 PM

well fire sadly i am running the origional 1 pc well kinda origional my frist crank broke and i bashed my head on a rock on a dirt rode after sliding about 5 feet the break int he crank was due to being over heated when it was made
