dont buy a complete if its not ur first bike. spend a little money, build something. its cheaper and will be much stronger. and riding no brakes is not dangerous and you dont have to shove your foot in the tire.

Yolanda Melgar says:

can you help me. i wanna buy a decent bmx bike for cheap. any ideas where i can find it .

PhoenixHydra says:

None of those are BMX bikes. You’re confusing a freestyle bike with a BMX bike just because it’s 20 inch. BMX is bicycle motocross “racing”. You told them not to buy a large sprocket. Large sprocket IS BMX. The the front sprocket changes teeth depending on the gear you like. You told them to look for a loud freewheel. Loud can also mean it needs grease. It’s not an indication of quality. Gyros aren’t used on BMX because you don’t spin the handlebars to race and you want the bike as light as possible.

BMX buying guide

Check weight of bike look for rust on the frame or use a magnet to test the frame. If it’s heavy, has rust on the frame or the magnet sticks don’t buy it. Anything else can be changed. Most parts that come on a factory bike will probably be inferior anyway.

michael johnson says:

Whats wrong with a one piece crank? It peddles no different from the 3 piece and it’s easier and faster to work on.

the winnipeg transit fan huang says:

Hunter Verrill says:

hi im hunter, im 14 years old, 5’7, 140 pounds. I don’t have a bmx bike but i have been looking into it ever since i rode my friends bike. I found myself to be really good and wanting to get my own bike so I’ve been watching video after video. I still don’t know what brand or type of bike to get. I want a bmx bike for mostly cruising around and light tricks like small jumps and flatland tricks. Im very confused to where to get all this from though. Like “where do i buy these parts” “do i buy the parts all together” “do i buy everything as one” “do i get the parts of my bike from a store or a website” thanks again for this video it helped a lot just to sure where or how to buy a new bmx bike, thank you 🙂

Mozzy 46 says:

Wow this guy hasn’t a clue what he’s talking about

Joshua McClure says:

I want one becouse all my freinds a wanting me to have one

deVille NM says:

this fuckin guy has no clue wtf hes talking about…

Angel amarillas says:

Do a video on how to find what integrated head set to buy

Alex Yarur says:

also, dont even come to youtube for advice. find out what others are riding and what feels good to you. small sprockets in the front mean nothing. i see pros riding 30 tooth sprockets vs the 25 tooth this guy is running. all it means is that you get more clearance on coping in skateparks with a smaller sprocket and you get much better acceleration.

RedMoWarrior says:

i don’t think it matters if the wheels were to make a lot of sound. Doesn’t mean anything
