Can trials help???

Hi, I'm a beginer at street riding. Do you think learning basic trials moves can help me improve my skills?

Well if your learning anything you are improving your skills. You should definatly ride trails because it will help you with air tricks, and(atleast for me) when I ride trails and just flow through a couple jumps it boosts my confidence a lot. So you should definatly ride trails it helps you a lot.

He's talking about trials, not trails. And, yes, it should help, since those are all BMX tricks at heart anyway.

You can do trials moves on a BMX bike.. or a mountain bike for that matter.
