what are good bmx bikes
hey what do think a good light bike would be for 200-400$

you dont need a bike to be light stock. it just doesnt matter. you'll end up breaking things and swapping for lighter parts, and ditching stuff, like brakes if you buy a stock bike that actually has em.

just pick a bike on some online shop that has features you want. eventually you will make it lighter with newer, better parts. it happens to everyone. when i bought my bike stock, it weighed 33 lbs. i got rid of the pegs, brakes, put some new bars on, smaller drivetrain, and thinner grips. i cut my weight down to 27.5 lbs. just get used to it and drop weight as you go.

i was looking on dans comp

Street rider 07-18-08 09:14 AM

theyre both made of hi-ten garbage. you need to read the specs and look for 100% or full Chromoly. that goes for both the frame and forks. and look for sealed bearings like BB, Hubs, and headset.

Street rider 07-18-08 09:20 AM
