trials vs bmx vs freestyle etc?
Hey, just wondering what the difference between all the different trick varieties of bikes/cycling (trials, freestyle, bmx ... ?)
I commuted for a few years on a road bike and this year started road racing. I've done unicycling, aggressive skating, gymnastics, acro etc so I really like the idea of using a bike to do "tricks" (if you want to call it that) as well.
I don't know what I want exactly, but imagining fixed gear, small enough bike that I can get off it in a pinch, maybe large or mid-sized wheels - not sure I could get used to BMX size wheels, but I imagine small would be better for handling.
Any tips on bike/resources?
