Hey guys.

I currently own an Orange O2 with pace pro racing forks, XTR full. I used to be really into road and mountain biking, but due to spending time in hospital i had to stop. But am back now and gettin hooked into BMX'in, just because it looks really cool, and alot of fun to do.

Any one with ne tips on where to start? ideally i wanna start in say about 10 weeks, and practise loads. If ne 1 could just tell me where would be a good place to start (actual bike itself) and parts. I dont mind buyin parts separately and building it myself. Look forward to seeing what u have to say

i was were u are a couple years ago, i just finished buildin my first really good bike, before tht i had a good haro, the best pointers i can give are not to jump right into tricks but first learn how to bunnyhop and j-hop real good, learn how to get good air off of jumps, then when yur confident about basic riding and jumping then start yur basic tricks like tabletops and 180s and x-ups and things

j-hop is like a bunnyhop only you dont just jump from flat u jump from a manual, u dont need to manual first but like yur front tire goes up first

i still do tailwhips and steamroller but flatland is just not for me. i like cruising through town grinding, stalling, gapping, or just jumping things. couple days ago i was messing around on a cement highway divider

I would say test out a couple differnt ones if you can just to get the feel of what kind of frame crank forks etc u like. but if you cant then the gt/fly is pretty good to start out with.(better then what iam rideing now)
