the new wombolts arent too bad. i guess they updated a bunch of things like the cluster nut.

and all we have near my house is this tiny little outdoor skatepark. basically consists of a 4 ft quarter, a little euro gap, and a 6ft quarter right next to a 4ft speed ramp. and then theres a random rail out in the middle of nowhere. its sad, but they let me in so its cool.

You can solve the skatepark problem by going when they aren't around, what do you think people would do in a town with like 4 skateparks that don't allow bmxers in do?

Heh, Dev, how old is that bike? My friend garbagepicked an old Dyno, and that's one of the only other times I've seen a bike w/ a surfer bar and a seat up that high.

Anyways... My cousin was riding my crappy Diamondback Viper X (Only costed around $200, I use it on the rare occasion I decide to ride the local trails, since my other bike weighs more than my car) at a Labor Day party and ended up bending the chainwheel. Would it be worth it to get a decent crank, or should I just go back to the store I bought it at and get the same crank/chainwheel the bike originally came with?

Get the 6-Pack. Or look at a Stolen Wrap.

Thanks for the suggestions. Why exactly would you choose the wrap over the 6pack? or what about a kink whip?

dont get the kink, the frame isnt full chromoly and its more then both the 6 - pack and wrap which are both solid bikes, choose either and you'll be happy.

Hey guys, I've been looking at BMX for a while now, and was interested in getting into it.
I'm about 6' tall and about 180-185 lbs. I was looking for a good beginner bike, preferably all chromo.

Here are some that I found around my area and was wondering whether it would be a good deal.

If you are feeling extra nice, maybe you could check out the entire page for me?

Thanks guys!


P.S. I made a new thread, but thought it was ok to post her too. Sorry about that.
