yea I ride. Not seriously like I used to. Are you a racer? I ride mostly street and dirt jumps. Check out DAN'S COMP - BMX Bikes, Parts, Clothing, Shoes and Accessories! to get set-up. They are more corporate and have some haters so if you don't want to go down that road, you can try trendbmx.com in austin.(not sure bout the website, but google it)

I like danscomp but everything they offer is so **** expencive, Back in the day i usedto race at a local track and started to get some spot light, but im so fat and lazy now that i dont want that i jus twant to street and jump, bs lke that. The only bad part about dans comp is that they dont offer GT bikes and thats what i want to go with.

I would probably just search craigslist till you find something your happy with. Sounds like you know what you want, and I know the bmx scene in texas is pretty happening so there should be plenty of stuff available.

My son races He loves it,(9 yrs old) he's moved up to intermediate after 4mos first time racing bicycles(8 firsts 2 seconds 2 thirds) he races MX also. Actually theres a couple sponsors lookin at him and hopefully in a few years factory racing so bmx is on the back burner for a while if it's got wheels and a motor nothing else matters to him. But if it keeps him out of trouble I'm happy and I just keep praying for God to keep him and all the kids in these sports safe. Sorry guys not braggin just a happy dad, anyway go to ABA.com and look for your local tracks

thats good to hear It's been in my blood since I was a little kid so I think he's pretty much hooked my daughter is the same just not as intense more just fun for her,and the wife is all for it so we are blessed to be able to do it as a family, not much of a ball sport kinda family. even 20 is a hard age just be smart and you will see another 20 I just turned 4........0 :pray: thank God I made it...lol Hoping to see another 40
