I hear what Loudogg is saying man. Plus l-dogg just went through a whole thing with being able to ride. i.e.: Doing what you love to do and having an over bearing parent stressing on ya.
Honestly though, I don’t think that there are a lot of kids that if you just have fun with them on a BMX bike, let them progress at their own rate and choose what they like to do, ride, race, flat, jump, ramps, wouldn’t be into it. At least for a little while. Riding a bike is fun, just plain is.
BMX also opens the mind to being creative in other areas of life.
