My name is Ryan I have a Primo Remix hub laced to the Primo rim that comes
with it but with white spoke and green nipples. My friend wants to trade his Profile rhd 10t hub for my Primo. Will the spokes I have now work for the Profile hub or am I going to have to get new spokes?

STAY IN SCHOOL
I hope you can help. I have a 15 year old stepson that wants to be a pro BMX rider. I have no problem with him chasing his dream, but he is fighting us constantly about school because he doesn’t think he needs to know any of it to be a BMX rider.
He just told me that he’ll pay attention and concentrate on it if I can show him where he will need to know multiplication tables and fractions to be a pro bmx rider.
Any examples you have would be a great help.
TO RESTOR OR REPLACE MY HUTCH?
Hi, my name is Jordan I am 15 and I ride old school flatland on my dads hutch trick star. I have been riding for two years and I love it. My dad is my teacher and my favorite rider. I envy my dad so much. I really love riding his bike but i always fear I will break it. The price tag on the bike is ridiculous. Because my dad ran the best stuff he could. He has a candy apple red hutch trick star frame and forks, Peregrine 48 spoke sealed bearing rims, and woddy itson signature bars. We both love this bike and he wants to sandblast and repaint it. Were going to replace the worn out parts like brakes,grips, tires etc. But my question is should I put my Christmas money into the hutch or invest in a modern bike? My dad and I both love your magazine and have been reading it for years. thank you for what you do and keep doing it.
FUTURE IN PHOTOGRAPHY
My names Bryce Blanton and I’m looking to start working as a photographer. I love taking pictures of bmxers and skaters. In fact that’s really the only thing i take pictures of. I was wondering if I would be able to shoot some stock photos for your magazine. I would love to have an opportunity to do this. Please let me know if this would be possible and any feed back is much appreciated.
THE RIGHT 24
I was hoping to see my question already answered. Almost, but not quite. I bought my 9 year old son a Mirraco Velle two years ago and gave my youngest the hand me down Specialized Hot Rock. I took them to the local track the other day and they absolutely loved it! That being said I can and will get more use out of a BMX cruiser than I will out of my road bike and mountain bike. I plan to sell them and get a 24 in. cruiser.
I need your advice to narrow my focus of options. I would like more race oriented as I don’t see myself testing the bike/skate park. I’m more of a racetrack or trail rider. What type of material am I looking for in a complete bike? Brand and model specific would be very helpful.
I’ve been looking at the following:
Redline Flight Pro 24 - too pricey
Intense Code 24
SE Floval Flyer 24
Height - 6’ 3”
Weight - 220 - 230lbs
Inseam - 34”
Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
TO RESTOR OR REPLACE FOR MY 10 YEAR OLD
I have a GT Performer bike from when I was a teenager, and now my son is wanting to ride it. It is in need of some upgrades as the bike is close to 25 years old. I have been looking around for some new parts, but I really have no ideas what the current brands are, and what would be good options for the following parts. What are some reputable shops where I can purchase these parts.
2) Brakes: calipers and handles for both front and rear
3) Brake cables for Odyssey Giro
4) Pegs for front and rear
It has been sitting in a shed for a number of years and just needs some TLC to bring it back to a rideable condition for my 10yr old son. I have not been around BMX for 20+ years, so it is all brand new to me now.
Thanks in advance,
A GOOD FIRST BIKE
I have just started BMX and I wanna get a BMX bike for Skateparks. I’m about 160lbs. What type of bmx bike should I get.
My name is Will and wanted to know how to make my bunny-hops higher. Since
they are such a basic trick and I use them all the time they need to be
higher. Any suggestions?

FIRST TIME MIGHT BE THE LAST?
Im 46 and just recently attended my first BMX race. I took a group of the local young riders and we went to the Gator Nats in Oldsmar Fl. Well we were very impressed with how fast and controlled the riders were, especially the pros of course. But at the same time I was dissappointed in a few things—first of all the way the track was set up the riders only jumped one jump. Not very exciting for us newbies. BMX should be about jumping too, otherwise it is just riding fast over obstacles. That does require a lot of skill but its not visually that interesting. I know other tracks are different but I only know what I saw. Second of all, and this is prob more important, as we walked past all the booths with our bikes no one acknowledged us except the bike shops that were selling stuff. We passed many pros sitting right next to us and I told the guys about who they were but none of them even looked at us, nor less acknowledged us. Pretty dissapointing. It wasnt because it was busy either, very few people were walking thru while we were there. We went thru about 4 times. Thirdly, some of the younger racers make smart remarks to our group, without any prompting from us. Yeah some of the guys have rag tag bikes that I have helped get for them but….I know kids can be cruel so it is somewhat normal. Just wanted to let you guys know so maybe if you print this some peoole may take notice and think about it. Thanks Mike Cole, Nobleton Fl.
HALF PIPES IN OMAHA
Is there a directory of halpipes or BMX parks listed on your web site anywhere. I was getting back into riding and I wanted to ride a halfpipe. The only place I know is Camp WoodWard. I was trying to find something locally. I’m in Omaha. Thanks.
RIGHT SIZE FRAME
I’m 5"4 and I’m looking to purchase a Kink Launch with a 20.25” top tube frame.
Would it be two big for my size or is it just be preference? (btw I’m still
growing in height) Thanks.
FINDING THE RIGHT FIT 20 YEARS LATER
I am 6 feet tall and 37 years old. I know I should know better, from the years riding, but I was always in and out of riding, so things keep changing and I can’t keep up.
After so many years I don’t have a frame that fits me like it used to and the best I had was a Profile Racing Freestyle frame (in pink) with a Haro Kneesaver race handlebar circa 1992. I never quite got it again since then.
I already got a 21’’ up to date frame and the tallest handlebar I could get, but I still feel stuck handling the bike, especially bunny hoping into tricks.
Can you give some advice on what to change to improve how my bike feels? What could make more difference? And would all 21’’ frames feel the same or are there other geometry specs I should look into?
HIGH PRESSURE OR LOW PRESSURE
I dont understand why sometimes you guys will say a high pressure tire is good, but then other times you say that a tire is good because you can run it soft. What is the difference?
