    Check out Source BMX, it’s just round the corner from me in Hastings, but they’ve got a cracking website.

    My eldest lad (13) is to say the least very fickle with his sports & whatever is his next fad, with this in mind he has taken out his BMX bike a few times of late it is a Haro, looks the part but weighs a ton though & seems to have an unfashinably large front ring…. SO… if I was to pander to his latest craze & started looking at Wethepeople BMX bikes in the lower price brackets of £2-300 how much of an improvment over the bike he has is it likely to be?

    Edit, pic of current BMX. Great wrong forum… 😳

    Ha ha they have a skatepark in the shop!!

    Thanks lads, it looks like I can get something that does the trick without dropping a fortune.. Will let him ride what he has a bit see if its a another fad, then surprise him for his bithday if he is riding a lot.

    What’s better about better BMXs? Do they just get lighter?

    My bmx weighs more than my Anthem! High end ones are a bit lighter, but they’ll be stronger, with sealed bearings etc and just better quality parts. Pretty similar to how MTB’s improve.

    The Source bowl in the shop is pretty cool, got it booked for a few hours on Sunday! 🙂

    My nukeproof mega weighs 34 lbs. My Stolen Sinner bmx weighs 24. It cost 350 quid and has sealed bearings etc. Great bike.
