Yeah you should be fine and once you get your bike you should probably start working on the basics like the bunnyhop i will help you out though.

Ha, best question ever. My friend bought a DK Cincinnati, for $330, just to ride. He has yet to pull the front wheel up over an inch, yet alone a wheelie, or a manual. But, he's also 265 lbs. at the age of 14. So, Shubby, I have to ask, are you a largely obese man, that will never attempt a BMX stunt on his shiny new BMX bike? Ever?

kk.
bunnyhop sounds simple though
lift with handlebars, then push out and lift the back
thats how you ollie on a skateboard too (kinda)
cept you push down the back and slide down the front

vistageco:
that made my day lol!
no i'm pretty tall and athletic and 13
and I have no intention of being morbidly obese
so yes i will try to learn tricks on my shiny new bmx bike

Yeah vista that was pretty epic. Yeah the bunnyhop is the same concept as the skateboard the pushing down on the tail is the same as pulling up and then the sliding is the same as pushing out on a bike.

I GOT IT yesterday
took me a good 3 hours to figure out how it worked and put it together properly.
at least an hour for the brakes
:O
im so noobish.
BUT now it's all set and ready.
I'll put up some pics later, but for now here's the official picture

I gave the handlebars a little bit more of an angle just for comfort's sake

No, let him. It will be funny when he wrecks and finds himself face to ball with his own nuts. Seriously, put the seat as low as possible.

Don't be so quick to jump on me..... Suspect
