    Honda Racing "Top Side" BMXer

    Hey,

    I'm new to the sport, actually I'm not even new yet. I was wondering if this was a peice-o-crap bike or if it is okay for a begginer.
    Any and all input is appreciated.

    It's a safe bet that if it's branded by a company that makes motor vehicles (ie: Jeep or Honda) it's garbage. That said, your bike should last about six months tops before it breaks or rusts out. I'd look into getting something with a Cro-moly steel alloy frame instead of the Hi-Ten ( otherwise known as High Tensile) steel. What you've got there is just another X-mart P.O.S. painted up with a car company logo. Your best bet is to return it or wreck it and get something like a Haro Backtrail - inexpensive yes but a solid bike to start out with.

    Thanks a lot! I don't want to buy a bike like that. Could you type in a link were I could look at one of these?

    Hate to say it(well, no I don't), but it's almost all skill involved there.
