What’s up stickers!

Thanks Rebecca for your comment- great rainy day activities, I’ll have to try the nail painting haha!

A while ago on Sticky I said I’d talk about what to look for in a BMX if you’re getting your first bike and want to start trying tricks!

I recommend you get a second hand BMX to start as a pro bike can come later. When you’re starting out- start simple, at a good low price- trust me you only need the basics to get started!

Once you get good on your bike, you’ll know it’s worth looking into something better to ride!

So here goes!

- Safety first - make sure you're rocking a helmet & pads
- A BMX that doesn't have major rust
- The chain should be in good condition
- Reasonably light (go to a bike shop and ask if you can look at the best BMX bikes they have- lift them up to see the weight, then compare the bike you’re looking at to the one at the shop)
- Tyres with good tread

Here’s a few extra bonuses:
- 3 piece cranks.
- Small chain ring ( a small chain ring saves BMX weight and makes dropping in easier as the chain ring won’t hit the coping)
- A trusted brand, I recommend Haro, wethepeople, mongoose, Sunday, Colony, Redline.
- A frame made of ‘Chromoly’ (as opposed to steel, if you get a steel frame- that’s all good though).
- 36 spoke wheels (some BMX’s will have more, but that is unnecessary as it just ads extra weight)
- Double walled rims (these are stronger than typical BMX rims and it’ll say on the rim if it’s double walled usually)
- A cassette hub (this allows the BMX to go fast even with a small chain ring)
- Nice big/ flat pedals that grip your shoes well
- Integrated head set (a feature built into your frame where the forks go through it- it just looks tidier, I’d say most BMX’s have this feature).

Remember you can always paint your BMX if you don’t like the look of it. So if you find something that ticks all the boxes and is for a good price BUT you don’t like the paint work- I suggest you get it and give it a paint! You can then make it how you want it!

If you have any questions- ask! I’d be happy as to help you.
Have a mint week!
