Ascend, you're right with both statements.

i have looked there some of the old threads and i have still to find a pic a site anything that can explan to me the different things that are on frames. i want to start running some trails by my house but i want to build my own bike from the ground up. i am just looking for a tutorial on bikes if there is one out there.
if this is a stuided question then i guess it is. i just like to know what i am looking at with out have to ask questions all the time.
If to choose between 09 FIT STR Signature or an 09 Stolen Cheater I think Stolen Cheater is better
Im thinking about building a bike ground up since my walmart bike is as heavy as lead, and from what I've read, Chromoly is the way to go. My budget isnt real high, but I'm willing to save up if it help's out in the long run. I am real light, so weight's not a problem. I ride around and I plan on doing stunts/tricks on my lead bike, but nothing hard, so I'll need a frame with brake mounts. Remember that im absolutely new to half the stuff on here (anything not basic, sept for brakes) so feel free to educate me. If I have to go ugly for the frame, I can easily paint. So pretty much, mixed brand chromoly parts to build a bike ground up. (long poster)
To build a bike from the ground up, it'll cost a pretty penny. Usually about a grand is the cost of a custom bike.

Yeah, I was thinking that. But if you picked like the cheapest everything, I'm sure you could get about $1000.
yo I need a new one. my current bikes are all wal-gooses and they're falling apart on me. I've got a bunch of gift certificats to my lbs. they have 3 that I want; 1) Verde Vex, 2)FIT PRK2, 3) WTP 4seasons. I liek street, and I want something real tough. I'm still a noob but I try tricks I really can't handle, so the bikes gotta be strong. which should I get?
how do you go from the str 2 to a 4 seasons get like the fit trl 3 or sig fits are the friken best dude
The 4 seasons is a really nice bike.
Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.
ya it is but i have alot of friends that have fits and theyve had no problems whut so ever
Yeah, out of the ones you chose, the 4 Seasons is definitely the best choice. Hit it up.
Is this a good entry bike for BMX racing? It should come in different sizes right?
If you look at the Redline website they come in different sizes
It looks like I need either the Pro XL or Pro XXL, I'm 5'10".
The Redlines are a little expensive though.
I have a Haro F3 but the tires are flat and when I pump them up they just go flat again. It is pretty heavy but not a big deal IMO. It has 4 pegs they should be relatively easy to remove, right? How can I tell what I need to replace to fix the tires/tubes and how can I do that? I also have another BMX bike I bought at the same time which is lighter, I don't know the make or anything though. I think I might just use one of those.
Look into Intense, GT, and Haro. They all make good entry-level bikes. And no, the Eluder doesn't come in different sizes.
Go for eastern its not like your going to crack a hi ten steel frame if your a begginer. I had a hoffman for a first bmx bike i loved it. Eastern for second
Hey guys, he wants a race bike. How much do you want to spend?
Oh race bike. kuwahara i guess lol. Wont any bike work though its just racing you can use a felt or something.
No, not any bike will work. Not well anyhow.
What is the best kind of racing bike to get? I think I'm going to go all out (say, not much over $1500, but would be happy if I could get top quality for less), what brand(s) should I be looking at? So far I've only been looking at Standard 125R because I've heard they are top notch.
I'm 5'10" and almost 210 (on my way down to a machine-like 195), what TT length should I get? I think it's either 21 or 21.5, but which?
Just out of curiosity, when they measure TT length, do they measure from the inner edge of the seat post to the inner edge of the "handle bar tube" (lol at my make-shift terminology)? Or, do they measure from the middle of the seat post to the middle of the "handle bar tube" lol ?
If you're willing to spend that much, go custom. I'm not sure how much mine has added up to so far, but it's somewhere around $1500.
I would probably go 21.5" for TT considering I'm about 5'5" and running a 20.5". And I'm pretty sure it's mid-seat post to mid-headtube.
