I'd been thinking about getting a BMX for a while. I take my young kids to some parks around here to ride on some of the little walking/biking trails they have. I can't keep up with them walking, but to take one of my other bikes would be ridiculous. I was at Dicks the other day when I saw an 07 Viper X. DB calls this a racing bike, but it has a gyro? With a $20 coupon I got it for $138 out the door. I never expected it to be the best bike, but for the price I figured I could give it a try.

I seem to ride a wierd combination of street and freestyle, and I'd like to get a front brake for some low speed freestyle and trials like manuevers. For this kind of riding the 44:16 gearing is way, way to high. This could have been a problem a much nicer bike though. Fortuneately with the one piece crank I was able to go out to the shed and find some old kids bikes with different sized chainrings. I should be able to figure out what size I like and then maybe order a decent one.

All in all I see no problems with my DB, but I'm sure if I end up doing much harder riding it may not hold up.
