If the park is good and busy then it's probably worth asking some riders around there as well. I tend to keep all the useable parts I've replaced incase something brakes
I suck at bmx, suppose I’ve been riding a solid year now? All race gearing, and cruising, posing, and errand running. I must accept even that is killing my knees and hips, but tricks is never happening.
However from this past year, I must echo the sentiment to get the longest frame you can. Also don’t let them laugh when you find yourself buying bars of up to 10” rise. The best thing I did on the GT was find some period-correct high rise knee-savers.
10" bars are more trendy than laughable these days (even with a top load stem). And if you want to do tricks then short chainstays are your friend.
Cruising, posing and errand running are all fair game, it makes a BMX feel more 'functional'. If I had to only have one bike, it'd be the BMX.
