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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
