Bmx

Most of the time in i ride whenever its not too cold and its dry out. i've been riding park and street basically for almost 3 years, and before that i rode dirt jumps when i had a mountain bike.

I ride a 2010 subrosa that i built up myself and bought most of the parts for how strong they are. my skill level is about intermediate but im not concerned about that because i ride for fun and it just feels great.

anyone else here ride bmx?

I used to until I moved down the road and me and my friends didn't get a chance to ride together all the time like we had been. I have a vintage ('80's) redline that is so light, I think my tires are the heaviest thing on it because it's hollowed out aluminum which is why I never tried anything too crazy, because I was afraid it'd snap under me (I'm about 195 pounds). I have a 25/8 gear ratio. The only original parts on it is the frame and the seat lol. The seat is plastic and my friends hate it but I think it's rather comfortable.

I have a pretty built up Sunday/Odyssey bike. I had it from the get-go cause my roommate owned a bike shop. Figured if I'm gonna ride one bike, might as well do it right...right?

Few injuries keep me from doing too much though. Herniated disc right now so I can't even hop...even if I try. No bueno. It'll get better though.

Sunday 2nd Wave, Morning forks, Elementary stem, Lumberjack bars, 41Thermal cranks with Ti spindle, Fly rims laced to Primo hubs, 25/10.

(The perks of being/having a good roommate!)

I ride a S&M cardona. I live to ride pretty much. I'd go insane without it.

I ride bmx too. I have a Sunday and love to hit up my local skateparks. When I'm not out snowboarding I usually head up to Joyride 150 in Markham. Awesome indoor park.

Ilive to ride my bike in the summer and even the winter with our indoor skatepark. Ive been riding for a few years and love it.

Heres a brief run down of my set up.

KHE specter frame
KHE anchor bar/stem combo.
Profile cranksw/ GDH spindle
Profile front hub laced to an alienation deviant rim
Demolition rear 9t wheel.
Folding KHE tires all around
Gyro setup w/ Odyssey evo 2 brakes and clear odyssey pads

I love it. my bike with brakes on it weighs in at just over 20 pounds. Without brakes it is an insane 18.9 pounds.

Holy shit! Just tried to find a 14mm front hub, I might as well be looking for a cambered board!

BMX, 2 steps forward and 5 step's back. I'd rather have a 14mm and it be solid than a 3/8 and have to worry. This has pissed me off today.

I got back into riding last summer.Started off with an older used K2 but being a pretty large guy I felt cramped on it.I didn't want to go up to a 24" cruiser because I wanted something I could still trick and ride trails pretty hard with and stumbled on a Faction 22" BMX.Best of both worlds.I am comfortable on it and it doesn't look like I just jacked a kids bike but it is still tough and responsive.Also spent a lot of last year building my friend a bike for a mothers day gift.It is a Macneil Whitton V2 frame with most other parts (fork, wheels) cannibalized off her old Hoffman Butcher.
