So I used to ride when I was younger (12-14) and I rode a 98 (I think) GT jeremy mcgrath showtime (blue,white,gold), may be gay, but at the time, it looked cool to me. Anyways, I've recently got back into street riding, and the bike's a little outdated, so I'd like to upgrade some things to it but wanted some advice from you guys. I'm not too sharp on BMX vocabulary but I'll try my best. Right now, the bike is completely stock, but I've torn it completely down and starting from scratch. The only thing I plan to re-use is the frame, wheels, and possibly the fork. Here's my questions.....
~First off, is the frame even worth fooling with? All I know about it it's a chromoly frame, sorry but that's it.
~Stock front fork is steel, should I upgrade to a chromoly fork? Any real benefits to chromoly? I want to lighten the bike up for tricks, so chromoly may be the way for me because it's lighter then mild steel?
My wheels are in good condition, except I found out when I was tearing it down that my rear axle is bent, should I just replace the axle or buy a new hub? Or a new wheel?
Want to upgrade to a one peice sprocket, what's a good ratio for the street? 44-10?
Right now, I've bought animal sway bars, I plan to buy a S&M redneck stem, profile 3 peice crank, new pedals, and sprocket set.
Thanks for all the help in advance, I've tried to search most of this stuff and have a good idea, but I'd like to tips from my stand point. I can take pics of everything if needed.
