Favorite Time Riding this past Summer? Preforming with Daneil Dhers Gold Medal Bmx Shows, Sk8 Cary Jam where I came in 3rd, and just cruising the streets at the beach.
Next BMX Goal? The next big goal is to land a 360 and hopefully compete in more of the USA BMX Freestyle competition.
Most kids go from a 12″ to a 16″ BMX and 14″ BMX bikes are difficult to get. What made you decide to get a 14″? Basically when we bought 12” Cult Juvenile we got the 14″ Blank Digit at the same time for his sister. Knowing his size and weight wasn’t going to change very fast it just made sense. Right now the 16” is still way too big for him.
The Bike is fairly new, but do you think getting the 14″ was worth it? Being he’s a smaller 6 year old I feel it was completely the right thing to do. The 14″ helps keep him in the right riding position. In retrospect I wouldn’t change the decision we made. The 14″ Blank has helped keep him on a steady path of progression.
