Which size BMX did you start riding on? I started on a 16″ redline.
When did you move up to a 20″ BMX and was the adjustment difficult? I just recently switched to a 20″ about a month ago. The switch is a little wierd at first but the bikes go so much faster and higher its a fun transition up to a 20″ for me.
What made you decide to make the switch to a 20″? I just thought it was time with my age and riding ability.
Do you have any advice for kids choosing a bike to start BMX? I would say start on a twenty to feel if u actually do need a smaller bike you will definitely know.
