-Huffy is a fine beginner bike.
-Remove every guard that was installed by the store owner
-Go to www.bmxtrix.com and read the how to on tricks.
-Practice bunnyhopping over small obstacles and up curbs.
-Welcome to BMX, if youre not hurting in the beginning youre not trying hard enough.
-If the bike looks lame with stickers, remove them.
-If you dont grind yet, take off the pegs while you learn to bunny hop(they weigh a ton).
-Cut the handlebars shorter and the seat post shorter.
-Remove front brakes unless you are riding flatland.
-Lighten the bike as much as possible, its heavy steel.
-Watch out for the mean people on these forums.

no way man. my bike doesnt need to be lighter, it already is super light.....something like 50 pounds so its ok.and i called up huffy today to see if i can get some better stickers for it. im going to get green and gold ones if i can.they said they would call me back. and im also thinking of switching my bike from having pedal brakes to the ones u pull with ur hand.

50lbs is actually really heavy. 40lbs. is considered to be heavy. A good weight would be mid to low 30's. Switching to hand brakes would be a good thing to do, especially if you ever want to try dirt jumping.

oh. i thought that a 50 pound bmx bike was really lightwieght. although i think my bike may be titanium. thats what the guy at the shop said...and it was only $160 australia dollars. and i want to put on my hand brakes but there is no where for the things that have the brake pads attached to them to go. can i drill my frame and use a bolt for them to go onto?

HAHAH, my bike weighs 16 lbs. Your bike is not titanium, maybe, taiwanese. It's a peice of sh*t. Here is what you can do to make it better. Burn it. Throw it away. Don't tell anyone you owned it. Never buy a bike ever again, untill your atleast 12. Thanks.
