fronthub bmx hubs

Behind the bike frame, I think that bike hubs are the most important part of a bike are it’s hubs. It’s the main connection between the frame and cockpit to the wheels and the floor. If you don’t have a good set of hubs you’ll be much more likely to break spokes or bend your rims. Cheap versions of bmx parts can be used quite effectively in a lot of places on a bmx bike but I would definitely advise against going the cheap route with a bmx hub. It doesn’t by any means need to be the most expensive or most complicated on this list but you should definitely think about the riding style you have and what hub will match that style the best. For example, if you’re a street rider, a freecoaster hub may be the best choice for you. On the other hand a dirt jump rider could never ride effectively with a freecoaster.

best BMX grips 2017

BMX grips may not seem an important part of a bike when your building or upgrading your BMX but when you see the many different aspects a grip can have you may have a change of heart. Next time you’re looking at a new pair of bike or scooter grips make sure to look at the weight, colour, size, material and the small features that make it different from the others. Just looking at grips you wouldn’t be thinking about any of this, there are so many possibilities that I thought it would be useful to go through and make a list of my favourites, favourites of other riders online and just some good looking ones I have found along the way.

best BMX fork 2017

You may be reading the title of this article and thinking “Why do I have to worry about what forks I ride, they aren’t important.” but they are in fact a very important part of your BMX. The best BMX forks will keep your bike light, strong, stable and comfortable to ride. When shopping for new bike forks it becomes hard to mistake any differences between each model. In the following list you’ll start to see that BMX forks do take a lot of thought and work to get right. A dirt jump rider won’t be able to ride at his best if he’s using a flatland style fork. For this example it’s because flatland riders like their forks to be right underneath their bars to make it easier for nose and spinning tricks. Dirt jump riders feel more stable and comfortable with larger angles.

View the top BMX frames of 2016 and 17

Without a doubt the most vital part of a BMX bike. Many people don’t realise but hundreds of BMX frames are released every year in every colour, from matt black to oil slick, and in many different materials. Professional riders are getting
signed and dropped constantly and a big thing they all love to do is create a signature frame. One of the newest and most controversial people to get signed and subsequently design a signature frame is Adam LZ. He runs his own BMX clothing
company and YouTube channel called LZ BMX. This list is definitely not a full list of every BMX frame or signature BMX frame made in 2016, although it’s some of the most popular and also my favourite frames of the past year. Count this article as a big 2016 BMX frame review.
