Well, let me try again guys...
I bought a DIRT BMX, from a good (not excellent) company. Then, I discovered it is so heavy, aand I don't want a heavy bike.So I decided to use it for a time (to learn how to do some tricks) and then, change for a lighter one...
I want you to say me what bike attends to my specifications... I would like it to be light, but to be resistant too..Cause I'll use it for everything...Understand???

Well, another thing... What's the WEIGHT of your bikes??? (please in kilograms)

Thanks again

up?

wethepeople 04-17-07 07:47 PM

My bike is like, 12kilo's I guess.

Also, why the hell to Dans take down the Superstar L.M.F frame? As soon as my tax return comes in, that ***** is mine.

Sheeb 04-17-07 07:50 PM

wethepeople, do you think your bike is light or heavy???

wethepeople 04-17-07 07:52 PM

It's decently light.

mude 04-17-07 07:53 PM

hehehe do it.

mude do you work at subway?

Sheeb 04-17-07 07:55 PM

Oh My God... My bike is 12 kg and I think its a little bit heavy... Well, maybe that's because I'm a newbie at the sport... But keep posting the weight of your bikes, please...

PS: Maybe tomorrow I'll be posting a picture of my bike ;D

wethepeople 04-17-07 07:55 PM

Also, it should be said light bikes mean nothing, years ago people were doing the same thing on bikes that weighed 40lbs.

Sheeb 04-17-07 07:58 PM

Well, I'm a noob, sorry... But I love BMX...
My only problem is that the skate park of my city is not near my home...I have to go by car to there, and I'm under 18, so...

PS: 40lbs = __ kg??? ;P

wethepeople 04-17-07 07:59 PM

like, 17ish.

Sheeb 04-17-07 08:01 PM

Sorry for this but, I didn't understand 17ish... Other thing is that in my city, u can't find good places to make grinds and wallrides >.<"...

It means it's around 17kgs, I just used a calculator and it's just over 18kgs.

FitRider 921 04-17-07 08:08 PM

The language is English. For things you do not understand, you should search for. If you can not find it by searching, then ask.

Sheeb 04-17-07 08:09 PM

Thanks... Well, when u guys started, was it difficult for you to learn the tricks???I mean, I can't even do a barspin O.O... I can only do wheelies, and I'm not too good with it, I'm training...

FitRider 921 04-17-07 08:11 PM

It's difficult for everyone. Many people can't do barspins. You should be doing manuals, not wheelies.

Sheeb 04-17-07 08:14 PM

Well, I can't even stay stopped at my bike for more than 3 or 4 seconds without putting my foot at the ground... And, about the manuals, I would like to know if there's some kind of hint to do it, because I can't saty with only on foot at the bike... Well, about 2 weeks with the bmx ;D

Sheeb 04-17-07 08:19 PM

What tricks would I try to do first???
Well, I need to sleep, I'm so tired...Bye guys, please answer =)

mude 04-17-07 08:20 PM

oy vey.

FitRider 921 04-17-07 08:20 PM

You can just search for all of this.

tmowery18 04-17-07 09:14 PM

Wow. Thats all, just wow. Now I see why everyone is so mean to noobs. The same questions do kind of get old.

Well it depends on where you live actually.

If you live in Jersey or by Woodward in PA then it's mandatory that you can tailwihp and backflip/frontflip before you can manual a curb. But if you live anywhere else, learn the simple stuff first. Like X-ups, no footers, manuals, tobaggans(sp?), tables, tire grabs and so on. Maybe a 180 or 360.


That part about frontflips and stuff before you can manual is true. Those incline club kids, can't even manual. Hahaha.
