    Okay, so my choices have changed since I found out that there's a local shop carrying BMX's. I went over there today and the two I liked most were:
    Fit TRL3
    Kink Roc

    Which is the better bike overall? I plan on doing mostly street and park riding.

    I'd go for the TRL3. But it also depends on your height. If you're kind of tall, you'd want the Kink because it's TT is .25" longer than the Fit. Either bike you go with is solid.

    I haven't touched a BMX in about 8 years so I have no clue how long of a TT I need. They both felt pretty good to me, and to my great delight (as well as surprise), I could still bunny hop.

    I noticed that the TRL3 had a really fat front tire, am I going to want something a little bit skinnier for street riding, or is that about right?

    EDIT: Also, i'm 5'9"

    You can ride anything with those tires, its more of a preference thing.

    At your height, either one is alright. Whichever one felt better to you.

    most street/trail setups have a fat tire in the front for grip and traction, and a skinnier tire in the back. but like fuzzy said, its all about preference

    I have a 2.125" in the front and back. Only because that's how I got it though. When I get new tires I'm going to get a 2.10" in the front and either a 1.95" or 1.85" in the back.

    I'll probably going to be going with the TRL3 if it's still available at the shop on Monday/Tuesday. I'm excited.

    I got the TRL3, it's a lot of fun. I haven't been this sore in a while though (good sore, i'm just out of shape).

    Looks so nice. I would have gotten the white though just because I like white better. Does it ride smooth?

    Best bike for my boy?

    Ok I have read through all 15 pages of this thread and searched the forums and still haven't found what I'm looking for! So I'm gonna post the question!

    I'm looking for a bike for my boy... He's 12, almost 13 but he's small! He's 4'8" and 70#'s...

    A friend that rides BMX said get him the bigger TT of 20"... I was looking at an 18" He suggested a complete from Dan's. These are his suggestions...

    Eastern Shovelhead
    https://www.danscomp.com/101570.php?cat=BIKES

    I've also looked at these bikes...

    Fit PRK 1
    https://www.danscomp.com/101967.php?cat=BIKES

    Fit PRK 3
    https://www.danscomp.com/101969.php?cat=BIKES

    Hoffman Bikes CIRRUS IL
    https://www.danscomp.com/101373.php?cat=BIKES

    KINK TRANSITION BIKE
    https://www.danscomp.com/101671.php?cat=BIKES

    STOLEN WRAP
    https://www.danscomp.com/101447.php?cat=BIKES

    WE THE PEOPLE TRUST
    https://www.danscomp.com/101786.php?cat=BIKES

    Now here's the big question... All of these bikes are 20''-21" TT. Is this going to be to big for my boy? My buddy said get him something he will be able to grow into... but I hate to get him a bike he's not going to be able to enjoy till he grows...

    All of them are about the same price range but price really isn't an issue... If someone has a better bike suggestion please let me know! He's going to get all A's and B's this semester so this is his reward!

    Thanks for the help guys...

    ^^ It takes a few years of solid practice to be able to pull off serious tricks. He will enjoy any quality bike he gets now. IMHO it's better to get a nice CroMo complete and not have to get another in a few years. At his age he may start to grow quickly. There are two bikes made by Verde (Modus & Spectrum) that are $600+ completes being sold for around $400 delivered. I would not get one with over a 20.5" top tube. Of the ones you posted the Kink Transition is best bet.

    Hello think is not exactly about a bike but it is about a wheel for a bike.
    The original forum is here : I need help if this is worth fixing it up.
    I am wondering which wheel should i buy which isn't too expensive
    i was wondering between http://www.amazon.com/Alex-Alloy-Fre...1213866&sr=1-1
    and
    http://www.amazon.com/Alex-Alloy-Nut...223742&sr=1-91
    My bike is here: http://veruanna.rajce.idnes.cz/My_Bicycles/#album Its a 24 inch bmx racer

    back wheel.

    Use the end of a pen and if it's about the same size as that, it's 3/8", which it most likely is.

    It's 3/8ths. the alex 303 will be a bit tougher but honestly they are both crap, but you get what you pay for.
