Getting Back into BMX!!!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Recently got a Sunday/ Baker High C colab 29 inch cruiser.  I started BMXing when I was a kid and then started skateboarding more through teen years but now in my mid 30s, I am trying to get back into both skating and BMX.  I got the bike to use to get back into shape and cruise the neighborhoods and learn to ride wheelies and stuff.  I love the bike it's awesome but its currently geared 27: 13, and I live in Kansas City, which is pretty hilly.  Any suggestions on a good gear ratio I could try to give me some more power for climbing hills and torque for popping wheelies?

Cool bike!

My daily is a  hardtail 29r Lefty up front with 2x10 gearing so I am not sure what to tell you on what is the right choice for only one gear.  Having said that keep riding because you will get stronger and what may seem like a gear that is too hard now will get easier as you get stronger.

Not related to gearing, but bike fit, you may want to try a flatter and possibly wider handle bar, depending on your height. 

I sometimes ride with 29r single speed riders (one speed no suspension XC racers) and when they are fit they are tough to beat. Keep at it!

I run a 31/16 on my 29'r, and I like it for neighborhood cruising.
