I just bought a MOSH 24" cruiser. I'm new to bmx, or at least it has been about 8-9 years since I was into bikes. I needed a bike to ride the 2 miles to my university where I go to school and work. I wanted something bmx style, but I'm almost 6'4". The ride there is all urban landscape, with plenty of knee high concrete ledges, metal park benches, etc. I know that this thing is not meant for street riding, but none the less, I have a few questions. If you can answer any of them, thank you in advance.

1. Can I throw some pegs on this bike and try my hand at grinds, or is that a fools folly?

2. The bike is just over 30 lbs. I'd like to put this thing on a diet, but I cannot find a spec sheet that lists the weights of the individual components. What are the best ways to lighten this thing up a bit?

3. In light of all this, should I just buy a cheap beater bike for riding street, and keep this thing stock, solely for transportation?

4. Does anyone here have close to the setup I am looking for?

Thanks in advance guys.

You could, but it would **** your bike so fast.

New frame, new wheels

depends, theyre making some pretty beefy street and dirt cruisers now, im not really sure what the bike looks like or anything but if ur new to the sport i doubt ull **** it up too bad, if u want to lighten it up go to and it tells u the weights of most of the parts, it all depends on what ud like to ride for transportation, if ur 6'4 i think a cruiser might be a little more comfortable, and a 20" will be easier to throw around for street.
