PostSubject: i want to be SAF (street as fuck)   Tue Jul 29, 2008 4:30 am

i was watching top gear last night and one of the hosts raced some bmxers through london or something
they were doing so much crazily awesome shit like manualing down the escalators and shit
it was awesome

they inspired me to start riding serious street

so as soon as i get some cranks ima start learning to grind
and do bigger stairs and stuff like that

thougths, tips, anything you would like to say appreciated

Yeah I only just started running pegs and have damaged my hubs and spokes a bit from grinding.
DON'T GRIND WITHOUT HUB-GUARDS!!!
I ride park heaps too and i want to get into a bit of street. The good thing about street is you can do some just in your driveway.
ie. manuals, 180 hops etc.

ha im all street,u have any questions,ask me man...
ok so dont get the lightest bike possible cuz u gonna break it.
u will want to grind,so put pegs on.2,3 or 4 pegs- dont matter.
dont get the most wide and tallest bars,cuz u gonna be moving between cars and throwing bars is kind of easier,but less challenging i guess.
get tires that have at least 100 psi,and have street design.
front tire wider and back tire narrower,why?cuz wide front tire helps u control ur bike better,and narrow back tire makes it harder for it to pop when jumping off bis set of stairs and gaps.
almost forgot,use hub guard,at least for the rear hub.if u start with handrails,fornt hub is useful too.
i guess thats all i got in my mind now..if anything just ask me
