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.

NAVIGATING THE PARK

Dear BMXperts

I was wondering how to get more air coming out of a quarter pipe and how to roll over a spine when it’s on an angle or triangle shape?
Thanks for reading and hopefully answering my question.

MAKING FUN OF SCOOTERS

Hi I’m “Bubbles” (changed to protect the identity of the writer) and I am 12 years old. I don’t BMX but I love the mag. smile. I scooter and I hate when people make fun of me for no reason, just for scootering. I think it’s about the same as BMX. I am a very small dude, so it’s hard for me to ride BMX because I don’t have much muscle for it. I do love to ride on dirt tracks and in the marsh and stuff but I can’t do any tricks. I think you should put a section of tips and tricks for scooters in the magazine. Thanks alot –“Bubbles”


ABA RANDOM GATES

Dear BMXperts
I am a racer and I have heard that the ABA will be going with the random start cadence for all classes in a year or something like that. Does his mean I am going to have to relearn my gates? Why should I have to change, I am not a Pro nor am I going to the Olympics. I am 28 and could use one less headache in life.

SWAPPING A DETANGLER FOR A STRAIGHT CABLE

Hey BMXperts,
I have a detangler on my bike and I was wonder if I could remove it and use a single cable as my brake cable, and have my brakes still work? Also, do brakes work better with a gyro or no gyro?

ROLLING OUT OF ROLL BACKS

Hey BMXperts,
My name’s Corey, I’m 12 years old and I just got my new bike. I’ve been doing some riding with it and I just can’t get my roll backs down. I was wondering if you guys could give me any tips on my roll backs to help me land one.
THANKS,
Corey, St. Catharines, ON

THINK LIKE MERKLE

Dear BMXperts,
I am an OK rider but don’t know a lot of tricks and my parents don’t let me ride far from the house so I can’t go to the park or the jumps without my parents with me. What can I do to get better, because I never will like this?

GIRLS IN BMX

Dear BMXperts,
I just picked up your magazine because I’m getting into BMX. I know practically nothing about it because I am converting from skating. Actually I am a girl skater with a cross-country scholarship that can’t afford another sprained ankle; broken wrists are a little easier to deal with. So I went out and got a bike off of craigslist. I should have done more research first because I am stuck with a real crappy GT bike now and no money to play with. I will use this for now but really, where do I start? Like what tricks, and how welcoming are bikers to newbies…especially girls? When I started skating I had to go super early in the morning when it was freezing to avoid being kicked out of parks.

AFFORDABLE SEALED HUBS

Dear BMXperts,   
Hi, my name is Zach and I am 11 years old and have just started really getting into BMX. I am currently riding a Giant method 02 and am having a blast. I have a question, I need a pair of hubs that are sealed and fairly reasonable in pricing and was wondering if you could help me out with giving a recommendation on which ones to get. Oh ya, I was looking in your October issue at your 2011 bike sneak peek and realized that you put a picture of Kink Doyle for a Premium Broadway bike and was wondering if that was a mess-up? Keep up the good work on the awesome mag.
