Hey all. Just wanted to drop a note as I'm sure I'll be here asking questions about ... stuff. I'm 43 and haven't ridden a bmx since I was probably 13, we just called em dirt bikes back then and the term bmx was still kinda new if i recall. Anyway... since then I've ridden road bikes exclusively. One of the guys in my office passed around some clips from the movie 'RAD' (that's the one alright) and I must have gotten bit by the bug.
I am pretty sure I will be buying / building a bike in the near future. My 8 year old thinks its great that i want to ride a kids bike with him lol. So , just wanted to poll the folks here as to what are good parts manufacturer's these days... when I was a kid, mongoose was good, redline was awesome but pricey...we stayed away from store bikes more or less and built what we wanted from parts.
If there are any other folks who jumped back into the fray i would be interested to hear any sort of comments you had on the subject.
I find it both fascinating and agonizing in watching full grown adult men riding BMX bicycle around my city, especially when drawing from my experiences in riding a bicycle that was only a couple of sizes too small for me.
