I forgot. Check out Next and Pacific.


Ask more detailed questions like:
*what you need the bike for(street, flatland, racing?)
*what size frame you need
*What features you want

I'd suggest getting a $350 full chromo frame bike and riding it until you need to replace.

then get one for street. basically any bike that isnt built for racing or little kids will get you through some street.

and learn how to type. with all of the "what bike do i get" threads, come some really horrible spellers. its gettin really annoying trying to read all of your writing.

Nope never asked what BMX to get. I ask about two that I had to chose between. But even if i did there are only about a thousand of those questions on the front page.

You must suck if you bent your forks from a stall

I suggest that you don't make any more suggestions like that.

I didn't bend my forks from stalling, i bent the axle, and the fork bent because of the was my peg laid because the axle was bent. And i dont suck, i said when i first learned. And bmx2478, i suggest you make some suggestions to what bike he should get, instead of telling me what not to do.

My front wheel has a 3/8 axle to. It is tiny though. Like super small. It looks really sketch. It's worked fine though. Remember get the Kink Roc

It will make no difference what we tell him, he will most likely go to his lbs and buy the first pretty and colourful bmx he sees.
And if you can bend a 3/8 from a stall, maybe bmx isn't the sport for you.

Have you even ridden 3/8 axle for at least a month when you first learned to stall? Because then you can't talk
