If thats the second best BMX you have ever ridden, you have never ridden a nice BMX... lol

I won't even get started with it, because you seem really attached to it, I won't hurt ur feelings, lol.

why do you think im getting rid of it, I CANT RIDE IT...

ive ridden Wethepeopl, haro, mirraco, and specialized...

the specialized is super short on me, the wethepeople was the best, the haro seemed REALLY small, and the mirraco, i didnt have long, so I cant give an opinion on it.,

it's a good thing this thread didn't get jacked Rolleyes

i've been riding mtb for years, just got a bmx and yes it was weird at first. the main thing is the difference in balance, like for manualing and turning properly. Also it's strange that my little bitty wheels have huge bars attached to them and my huge mtb wheels have narrower bars on them.

i would say, ride the shit out of both, that way you'll know what to expect each time you hop from one to the other. Also, your balance will probably adjust quicker.

I ride MTB and BMX but in the same way. I ride a hardtail DJ 26" in park street and DJ and I ride my BMX in the same parks street spots and DJs and I find that on a MTB I prfer bigger smoothr and simpler moves whereas on BMX I love trying to get tech.

i just started riding bmx aswell as mtb, i use my mtb for dirt jumps and my bmx for skate parks and street. only hard thing is when u first hop on the bike just gotta adjust but after awhile im pretty sure the transition will be easy

i ride my mtb about 90% of the time. but when i want to learn a new trick i cant get on my big bike i hop on my bmx. it helps me dial the trick. and also i ride it when im doin tight street stuff were my big bike gets in the way. only takes me a couple of mins to adjust between bikes... it sucks because my mtb cranks are bent horribly.

I get that like if I've been riding 26" then I try something on a BMX I tend to just fall off the back and look like a total retard.
