Rodney, the problem is most (I don’t necessarily mean yours) shops don’t speak BMX, racing or freestyle. Sure, they have a few token BMX bikes for the kids, but pretty much they dont know and they dont care. (Then again, unless you are buying a complete, many shops don’t seem to want to be bothered with anything else either). I try to buy from a shop whenever I can, but sometimes its a whole lot cheaper AND better to just call or online shop someone who knows BMX. Wish it werent that way and I will continue to support local shops when I can. I want them to be there as much or more than the next guy.
