BUYING NEW BARS

Dear BMXperts
I’ve been reading you magazines for a year or so and my birthday is next week and I want to buy a new pair of bars for my bike. I don’t want to spend a lot and but I want a good pair. What do you suggest?

Thanks Jack McDonnell

SPOKE LENGTH

What’s up, my name is Josh I’m 18, and I need help. I have a Eastern Birectional wheel and I just bought a Primo Mix hub, but one side of the Eastern Birectional hub is smaller, so what size spokes do I need in order to install my new Primo Mix Hub on the stock rim that came with the Birectional hub?

LOSING THE BEARING RACE

BENT FORKS

I bent my forks on my stolen riot this weekend and I am wondering what would be the best route for me to take. I think it has a standard headset and all the forks I have looked at say they are for integrated headsets only. If you could let me know what to do that would be great.

DOUBLE PEG GRINDS

Hi, my name is Chris Chan. I am 13 years of age. Over in Michigan, winter is done and spring is just settling in. I have managed to get some street sessions in with my bros, but one thing I just can’t get is a double peg grind. I am pretty sure it’s like a bunny hop (Front wheel up, then fallow up with the back end) but I’m not sure and I knew you were the guys to go to in a situation like this. Keep it up,
Chris Chan Miller. 


PROFESSIONAL RIDER, CLOSED COURSE

By the way Dave Mirra is my hero I just bought pro town Greenville and I love it shred on!

GUIDANCE COUNCELOR

Hey guys what’s up? My names Bretton, I read your mag all the time, it’s the best! My friend and me found this rail and took it back to my house and finally started grinding. I’ve been riding for 8 months and I can bunny hop about 13 inches and I was wondering if you could give some pointers on any park of street tricks, preferably 180’s. Thanks. (P.S. Daniel Dhers is my favorite rider I’m his number one fan and he crushed everybody at the X-games) Peace!

“WIPING” OUT ON BUNNYHOPS

Hi, I’m Nicholas Piparo and I’m 12 years old. I just started BMXing about 8 months ago and my parents bought me a 2011 Kink Curb. I was wondering if you thought this is a durable and light beginner BMX bike? I also am a very suckish “J-HOPPER” or “BUNNY-HOPPER.” I can’t get higher than maybe a roll of toilet paper. I was also wondering if you could give me any tips on doing “J-HOPS.” Keep on with your skillz! Thanks!

HALF LINKED

Dear BMXperts
My name is Joe and first off I love your mag. I was wondering if I needed a special chainwheel or driver to upgrade to a half ling chain. Thanks Keep on Riding,
Joe


TEN TRICKS

Hey BMX Plus!, Kayleb here and I love your mag. I recently started saving up for a Subrosa Salvador. I ride dirt but am kind of new to park and street riding. I was wondering, what are ten tricks that I should start out with? I can J-hop and catwalk now and am working on no-footers. Thanks, love the mag, I read it cover to cover every month.


SEALED BEARINGS FOR 1-PIECE CRANKS

Dear BMXperts,
Hey, my name is Nick, I’m 17 and I live in Minnesota. Just bought a Stolen Riot and it came with a one-piece crank and unsealed bearings. I am wondering if it is possible to put sealed bearings in it, and if that is something I could do or would I need to bring it in to a shop. Thanks


WHEELIE HOPS

Hi,
My name is Diego, I am 10 years old and I just can’t seem to do a bunny hop. I can do a wheelie and turn my wheel when I am up in the air, but that does not seem like much. BMXing is my favorite thing to do and I would like to get better. Thanks.


DRIVERS WANTED

Dear BMXperts,
First off, my name is Brandon, I’m 13 and I’ve been riding for 3 years! I love the mag, but I have one question about drivers. I have a 2010 Fit Prk 1 that needs a new driver and I was wondering what kind of driver to get. I don’t know what to get because I can’t find any drivers that Fit made for my bike. Great job on the mag keep up the good work.
Brandon
