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.
