My son is 13, he's growing, and it's about time to build another bike. He's been racing BMX for 3 years now.

I'm going to keep this bike, as is, and put it in storage. I won't be stripping components off of it for the next build. It's fun to build these bikes.

This bike was about as high end as you could build 3 years ago. Carbon fiber frame, works, and cranks. High-end Onyx hubs. Titanium spokes. Close to $4k when I got done. I'm starting to shop now and make decisions on what manufacturers I want to go with...



This second pic was taken last year in Tulsa, OK over Thanksgiving at the biggest race of the year: The Grand Nationals. He just came off the track with the 12 year old title. Pretty happy moment for me and the boy.

hot dam thats awesome! What does the bike weigh? any close up shots of the bike?

I'm more of an MTB rider myself, but having the right hardware makes a world of difference. For my MTB I have a titanium frame. Its not as light as some carbon frames but it really soaks up harshness. I imagine for BMX racing carbon is perfect.

Congrats on winning the title!

And I thought my 6yr old son's Specialized Hot Rock was fancy!

What chain lube do you use?

The bike weighs 14 pounds 10 ounces race ready.

Usually we just soak the chain in hot parafin wax for 30 minutes, let cool, and knock off the excess. It's been proven in many studies to be the most efficient.

In a pinch or bind, I use this: wax dissolved in very volatile solvent.
