Basic differences between street and race BMX bikes

In this video, we cover some very basic differences between street and race BMX bikes. This clip is intended for anyone who is new to BMX racing and has limited knowledge of BMX bikes. We don’t get all ‘technical’ in our explanations, we’ve kept it simple to make it easy for non-BMX people to understand.

Luis Alberto Ahumada Abrigo says:

Nice video! may I ask you something?
I want to transform my Street BMX to a Race BMX. So far, I’m not interested in make it lighter, I just want to change the brakes, handlebar and front sprocket.
About the sprocket sizes, now I have 9 back and 25 front, if I want to change only the front sprocket, which size would you recommend me?
And which size of handlebar?
Thank you very much
