So, you heard about bmx, or you saw one of those extreme shows about bmx, and now you're thinking, hey, that looks like fun. Well, before you go head first into the bmx world, there are a few things you need to know. A bmx bike consists of many different parts, and if you dont pick the right combination, you'll end up replacing and fixing more then you will riding. And I think it goes without saying, you dont want to be in that perdicament. So, lets get to it, and get you on your way to riding your bmx bike.

The first and most improtant part to the bmx bike is of course the frame. If you get this right, you'll only have to end up repairing and upgrading the smaller parts, which will of course be less expensive. I'll try and keep this as simple as possible, without using to many bmx terms. First off, when picking a frame, its really gonna depend on how tall you are. If you're bigfoot, then you're gonna want a longer top tube length. If you're as tall as frodo baggins, well, maybe you shouldnt be riding a bmx. Just kidding, go with a smaller top tube length. You'll of course want to go with a custom frame, which is a frame that already hasnt been assembled. You can go with stock, but remember, you really want to make the frame your own.

Next of course would be the wheels, and should go without saying, but you'll want chrome. But to start off, you'll want to go with solid, double wall rims, or better if you can. Why? Well, you'll proabably be eating more crap then a dog and you dont want to bend up nice and shiney chrome rims, not to mention that chrome rims also cost quite a bit more. The hub is also an important feature and you'll want to look for what is called a cassette hub. This will allow for a smooth ride and dependibility. Try to avoid colored rims at all costs, this is for braking purposes and just trust me on this.

Now we come to the fork in the road. Sorry for the bad bmx joke, but I was talking about picking out a fork for your bmx bike. This is the part that holds the front wheel, and is also of course of major importance. And these, like the frame, you'll want to avoid stock and go with a spereate, custom fork. These are by far more reliable and you dont have to worry nearly as much about them getting bent or twisted. Just make sure you check the brake mounts, and make sure they at least have them. Yes, braking is important when riding your bmx bike.

Of course there are other customizations you can do to your bmx bike. Just make sure you get the basics right and your bmx experience will be a much more pleasant one. Get it wrong and well, another one bites the dust.
