- Recommend me a bmx
So original plan was a dirt jump type mtb but I think I’d be able to take advantage of all the great BMX parks Etc that Exeter has if I get a bmx instead, I’m more likely to learn a great variety of skills / tricks also….
So those of you with knowledge of the small wheel what bike would recommend to cover a bit of everything (excluding flatland) for a beginner. Not fussed about pegs but want to make sure any bike I get can do the dirt jumps at the bottom of my road and an afternoon at flower pots.
No idea what BMX costs so suggestions of what and where to find second hand appreciated also

Is that down at GLC by Polsloe Bridge? Most freestyle BMXs will be able to handle that. I have a Mongoose one that I is great for things like that. If buying new you can get some pretty decent entry level bikes for about £200. \especially as they’re often reduced in sales.
Newton Abbot has 2 BMX shops worth looking in, and Saddles and Paddles might have some as well. Unsure if Bike Shed does anymore thoughPosted 4 years ago6079smithwMember

Hi mate, I’d say be cautious about buying a complete, unless its a race bike, as they are normally built for smaller people..
If you are interested, I have a deluxe frame which is designed for race tracks, trails etc more than skateparks, with top end kit for sale. Because it is a bit tatty from being in the garage, I’m only after 400 for it.

Thanks all will drop into the boarding owe next time I’m in town.
Iridebike what do you mean complete? I don’t really have the money to buy components frame etc and build one up so was hoping to pick up a complete beginners bike…. Surely they come in different sizes/lengths?Posted 4 years ago
