Hey whats up my name is zack I live in CT well its been snowing latley so cant ride to much but i have a POVERTY BUCK 99 got it from Danscomp well anyways iam a noob at bmx biking and I need to ask some questions. First I wanted to know if this is a good bike? Its seem heavy iam only 15 and i cant bunnyhop at high and i land pretty bad. I know how to bunnyhop *i think i do* i can get both wheels of the air but i cant get it high at all. Well the first time i got into bmx biking i had a walmart huffy lol then got this. I guess i could say i gave up bmx biking in the summer cuz i was getting bored i dont have many biker freinds that would ride with me or show me some good places but i have a skatepark right near my house but i think one of the reason i gave up biking was b.c i got bored i cant do SHi* on my bike just ride around the skate park and ride the nipple lol i love doing that. I think once i learn to hoppy high it will get fun but i keep trying and i dont even see an improvement. Also i hate the brakes on my bike, I see other bikers dont even have like orgy brakes that let you spin are thos better? Is this a good bike for a noob thats week lol also is there anything i can do to make it lighter.
