I must be missing something, because I don’t see how you think BMX is expensive now.
Sure gas is up, hotels are up, food is up – all with inflation and politics, but BMX is still cheap when compared to all that. I don’t think BMX has kept up with inflation. Tracks are paying higher fees for trash, toilets, trophies. Tracks are competing with skateparks and playstation, unlike before.
You are still racing for a plate like the old days. The plates are not as thick as back in the day, but way better looking!! We have some old dyno plates at Bensalem if you are really hurting for a plate.
And you better have a bike for the Bensalem reunion!
