    like others have said, you can save alot by buying from the us. dans-i hate them, theyre owned by a huge corporation that has nothing to do with bmx. ive used empire (empirebmx.com) and they are awesome. bought my mates complete bike from there, theyre in it for the bmx, not the money, unlike dans. if your over 6foot you would want a 21inch frame, or even 21.25. i ride a 20.8inch frame. which is about standard size (standard american size is 20.75). rough idea of prices: (ill do it all in aus prices that you would pay from a local shop) frame: anywhere between $400-$800 fork: about $200 bars: $130-$170 stem: $90-$120 cranks: around $250-$500(profiles) if you want to buy any profile stuff buy it from overseas, way too expensive to buy it here. pedals: $20(pc)-$120(sealed mag) sprocket: $60-150 seat: $40ish seatpost: $20-$60 seatpost clamp: $15-$40ish front wheel: too many variables back wheel: as above chain: $15ish grips: $10-25ish tyres: usually about $30-$40 definetly alot easier and cheaper to build a bike now then in the 90s. alot of complete bmxs are coming with full 4130 frame/fork/bars etc. with basically everything be made in taiwan it makes everything so much cheaper to make, and therefore sell.
  7. Show us your tats

    this thread should be in the nws section and be called show us your tits.
  8. the bmx thread

    that 1/4 isnt really big enough to have 2 people on it at the same time.
  9. the bmx thread

    it depends on the hub. some hubs you can get a bearing with a bigger id so you can run a 14mm axle, but most hubs youll have to buy a new one. how new are the spokes in your current wheels? you shouldnt really use *old* spokes because they are usually already stretched out to the max, but on freshly built wheels then you should be good to reuse the spokes, as long as you use the same rim and a hub with the same size flanges. dont worry about 14mm on the front, i run pegs and i only run 10mm(3/8) on the front. ill always run 14mm on the rear though. otherwise, yeah like judas said, slotted axles, but theyre getting hard to come by now. best bet is to drill out your dropouts to make a 14mm axle fit.
  10. the bmx thread

    yeah, thats how the photog shot it, he does alot of stuff for magazines etc.

  21. Under Cover Cop's

    ok answer me this then are all these bullshit speed cameras red light camera and cops like in this thread doing it to get free money off taxpayers? like i see no way how it makes it safer tell me one reason how it is safer or even safe? the idea is, you speed, you get done for speeding, you dont do it again=less people speeding on the road. but humans are too f**king stupid for that to work.
  22. your confusing normal everyday people with uptight import owners. normal people dont give a flying f**k about wheels.
