a year or so ago i bought a huffy bmx bike which was reduced to around £150 and i have always have had a problem with the weight, it weighs a ton, i also do trials and mountainbiking and it weighs a lot more than other bikes, this is making it hard for me to use and was wondering if it is worth upgrading the frame or is it pointless without upgrading everything else as well, also if buying frame what to look out ofr? and what sort of price? (no more than £150) any help would be great thanks

Wow a 2000 pound bike, I bet it bunnyhops like a bitch.

what kind of huffy is it but i guess you could buy a new frame not too much to look out for just find some frames you like and post them up here also it might be cheaper and better to just upgrade the parts but i would like to know what huffy it is and maybe a picture

an mj12 weighing a bunch? i thought that was one of there lighter completes, but anyways i save all my bmx magazines and catalogs so i just happend to have an old danscomp that has the mj12 and if you havent replaced any of the parts that could be one thing but if your a beginner i should be fine but if you dont have the money to buy all new parts or something check out a new complete like volume, federal, or something thats good and has a full 4130 frame your frame is 4130 main tubes which wouldnt be the whole frame, so if you dont buy a new bike or new parts(like crank, fork, and wheels) your just going to have to stick with yours, yours weighs like the average bike does right about 35lbs

I just got a Huffy Quarter Ton which is about 2 years old but hardly used so I brought it for a low price. It's not my first ever bmx, i had 1 when i was about 7 when i learned bunnyhops but this my first proper bmx since ive got into bmxing :)

I used to just ride about on my m8's Nirve Tempt bmx and when i got the Huffy, it felt very light and i could bunnyhop alot higher on it

no point in just upgradijng the frame, it save a you a pound max which isnt a lot on its own, few tips i can offer,

Front brake off
gyro off replaced with a long slic cable
and things like mudguards or lights bring off,
and if your looking for a frame, fly diablo £220
and we the people thrillsekker £150

the mj-12 doesnt have a front brake nore a gyro. and it doesnt have mud guards and unless it was bought at a shop would not have reflectors. and he told me that he was going to just stick with it and not upgrade it. it will just be better and cheaper to buy another complete that has a full 4130 frame and some nice parts then upgrade from there unless its got really good parts on it
