The bike shop that I bought my bike at a couple years ago went out of business. The shop that bought thier inventory doesn't sell ANY BMX race bikes, just a BUNCH of freestyle/jumping. I'm having a hard time believing that no one wants a light fast race bike. It's not like the guys I see racing aren't jumping 15 foot doubles on their race bikes. And the ideal that it has to be one or the other seems strange. There is a shop closer to the track that sells race bikes, but it's practically a guy selling bikes out of his garage. It's a small shop with only a few bikes. Is it just my area, or has BMX racing dwindeled everywhere. Try to find a 1 1/8 tire for a mini bmx, good luck.
