    I just bought my first 20" in a decade!!

    I just bought a Custom Redline XXX on eBay. The specs are
    here.
    Now I have to "learn" how to ride all over again.

    Cool. I was thinking about getting a Redline Triple X but for AUS$900, I just had a fear of it be stolen, so istead I brought a 2002 Specialized Vegas TR-X. I posted a pic of it below.
    It looks like a 2001 Frame but I could be wrong maybe a 2000 which means it is a full 4130 chro-mo frame. The fork is also cro-mo. Them cranks must be preety good.
    So what are you going to be using it for?
    You got that for a bargain.

    What a great bike...bet you can't wait to ride it.

    My Speccy still needs a couple of tweaks before I can get out on it...can't wait!!!

    Cheers

    That is cool that your getting back into BMX after a decade away. I recently bought a BMX bike too, the only difference is I haven't ridden one since the late 70s! Ive messed around on it a little bit before the weather got COLD and still remember how to do curb endos (even the no foot variety! LOL) and I managed to pull off a 360 after a number of tries too. One of the coolest things is I rode it around the neighborhood and decided to ride over to a place where there used to be an open field with a few jumps after all these years its still there and bigger than ever WOW that was cool to see!

    I am only 16 but 4 months ago a brought a Vegas TR-X and started riding the best I can and learn tricks. I can do a Curb Endo one footer, can't do a no footer yet. I can also do a curb endo one-hander. I like it when you go down to your local b.m.x track where there is all these kids thinking there the best and then you go and clear the big doubles and do a 180 up the table top and roll down the other side in a fakie. It's funny watching them leave the track 1 minute latter with their heads down.

    Being almost 31 and not having owned a bike in the intervening years between 10 and 30, I missed out on riding a 20". Just out of interest could a 6ft adult comfortably ride one from the saddle or are the seatposts too low/frames too small? I know they're not really designed for those of us with greying hair, but I do wonder whether I missed out on something I would have enjoyed.

    Sure! I am 31 and 6' tall. Just get a BMX bike with a 21" top tube, a lay back seat post, wide bars and a long stem.
