toward the end of the 90’s, BMX was starting to get huge again, however the popularity of clips grew, and many new riders looked at this as an unnatural act and probally did scare many new riders. YES I have been using them, however, as a trails guy, clips suck!!!!! I would welcome them being abolished!!!!!! Many of the older pros would like them banned as well. Will they probably not. Remember, you are not clipped in on a motocross bike
Steel is real The two freestyle bikes that I have now are FBMs one frame is 4.7 lbs and the other is 5.2 lbs if that is not light enough I dont now what is . No real advantage fro getting a alloy frame . What if they had clipped pegs ????
Rod, I’m running all cro-mo frames now (supercross), I might go back to alum, remember one of the first bike used in parks was a PK ripper, all alum, or the Numora, again all alum. Its not what the bikes are made of but I think some see being clipped in as intimidating, that has screwed up things
