Every time I see an oncoming BMXer swerving all over the place like in that video I slow down because I think it's an unsupervised child who got away from its parent

The worst is when I get close enough to see it's a grown man and he gives me this smirk like he's "won" because he made me slow down

>Bawwww muh Lancia I can't afford

The point was you can't buy a Lancia in the UK and the closest you can come is a kit car that is shit. They were bemoaning the fact that you can't buy a Lancia, which by the way was declared the best car maker ever by Top Gear, not that they were taking the piss out of Lancia.

Your autism may not have allowed for the nuance, though.

The Kit car is actually fairly decent from what I've seen of one a guy I used to work with was building. It seriously comes down to how good the person doing it is, and how much they're willing to spend on a decent drivetrain. If i had space to build one, and the money I'd love to have one, but my garage is already taken by my bikes and car.

Whats a good site to get cheap decent entry level parts on?

My bike's almost 10 years old so even modern crap parts are probably better/lighter
>>
>>905138

Danscomp is the go-to online BMX shop

depending on where you live a custom build off of craigslist is the best way to go

get a full cromo frame for sure, full build 25 lbs or less

if you're over 5'10" or adult size look for a 21" top tube, 8"+ bars

as long as the components are solid that's about it
>>
>>894743
First I was disgusted, then I realized that they are actually pretty decent at their game, and when they stuck it to the man I fell in love.
Sadly I don't have enough upper body strength or the skills to operate a BMX

Sweet a bmx thread! I think this might be the only one on all of 4chan.

Here's a picture of my bike, it's a Frankenstein bike almost entirely made out of hand-me-down parts. I think the frame is some sort of kids size, the wheels are 20" and far from true. Sprockets bent, rear hub has a locknut too tight and I don't have the tools to get it off so I can't even ride it without it's chain anymore. Broke and out of work and crazy depressed I can't even ride what do I dooooooooooo ;_;

I don't know anything about BMX and this is incredibly impressive but

are these retards running brakeless freewheels?

I understand certain components can interfere with the operation of a BMX bike but that's just fucking retarded

it'd be one thing if they were in a park but they're obviously not

hopefully they get hit by cars

kill yourself
>>
>>908791
yes, a lot of them dont use brakes.. wheels are actually cassette or freecoaster. the later lets you go backwards without having to pedal backwards.

the truth is that its not so dangerous as it sounds.. brakeless singlespeeds or fixies are lot more dangerous imo as you go way faster than on a bmx... you can go fast on a b,x but just for a short while.. you usually just cruise relaxed.. also you learn on how to brake using your feet on the wheels, its actually simple and instinctive after a while... and easy as bikes are small..also bmx riders = skill controling the bike.. so braking with feet on wheel or ground or whatever aint hard... again i find it way more dangerous on ss/fixies without brakes...

and its not only that brakes interfere so much with all that youre doing (barspin mainly), but more than they break fucking easily.... bmx bikes = made for literally throwing around.... the abuse they get is a lot.. thats also why you have protections for the hubs and stuff.. and thats also why they are usually of cromoly.. and yet they still break a fucking ton... on a bmx bike everything gets broken sooner or later.. from cranks to the fucking frame..no one really cares about weight so much but they do care about how long will this shit last... and breaks are fragile as shit.

peace out!

Advice for really, really begginners?

My bike weighs about 17lbs. I'm thinking about what should i do to improve its weight.

>I'm thinking about removing the front brake, saw my seat post (wich is at it's limit at the Picture), and i don't know, maybe even changing the frame (wich alone ,weighs about 4lbs)

I'm 5'7, 165lbs and i can't manual or even lift my front wheel. The bike simply doesn't come. So, i'm having difficulty at the Bunny hop and etc.

It may be lack of training, or even lack of upper body strength. But i think the problem is my bike, because i can do well in my friends bike (Wich weighs something like, 14lbs or less).

That's my bike:
>Vzan Freak rims
>Scorpion Hubs
>X-pro bars, X-pro stem (not in the pic), some trash forks
>Saddle Vader seat
>Ecos frame
>A fucking giant Pro-x 43t sprocket
>>
>>914820
yeah cut the seat post down but not because of weight, just to keep it low and out of the way... 17lbs is nothing. When I was a kind at 15 yrs old and 140lbs I had a bike around 35lbs and could bunny hop onto a picnic table. Weight is not the issue, your strength and form is the problem. You havent spent much time learning how to balance in a wheelie or manual and you just got a late start. Go get yourself a cinder block and a boar to make a small jump. Go off it a bunch and learn how to be comfortable on your bike. While jumping you will get sick of landing on your front tire and learn to keep the weight back and pull up a bit... soon you will be looping out.
>>
>>914829
Thank you man, really. I'm going to start spending more time with my bike, doing jumps, and follow your tip about the cinder block. And yes my strenght really seems like my problem. My last contact with a bike was 7 years ago, i was 13 at the time and rarely used it.

Is the front brake important for any trick? I'll extend the rear brake cable for the barspins and tailwhip, as i need one brake for city mobility.

But i don't see a reason to maintain the front brake.
>>
>>914850
you cant even do a bunnyhop... what makes you think you are going to be doing barspins and tailwhips anytime soon?
>>
>>915089
Sorry, my bad grammar made you misunderstood.

Yes i'm not doing anything of these anytime soon, i'm just thinking about leaving my bike ready with these small improvements.

cut the seatpost, and then forget about the bike and just ride and practice, watch youtube tutorials on how to manbual and bunny hop, and practice.
