i did that too, i find the skills i learned mountian biking realy help with dirt jumps, geting air off of bowls, and doing some tricks. droping in on a mountian bike is alot like droping into a half pipe. your right bmxing is more fun, but you don't go as fast, or get as much air, but the bikes are easier to control.

im not sure i might get a volume black sheep or poverty buck 99, ya i was just tryin to do sprocket grinds,and just way to hard to nail them and the 26 inch wheels really get in the way, its not like mountain biking will ever be as good as bmx on the streets beacuse all the mountain bikes are just gettin smaller wheels shorter chain stays and goin single speed i figured i should just go straight to bmx cuz thats what the mtn bike industry is doin, but im still goin to ride mtn bike on dirt jumps and downhill just prob no more street, so u guys got any tips on what bikes to buy thanks
