Good feedback. Thanks.

Well, hopefully, the 26" will be ride-ready this weekend. From there, a 24"r may be on list.

You are going to want to change the seat right away, and probably the pedals also. The rest is pretty good stock.

Thanks. 24" looks pretty fun.

Hopefully I'll get a chance to try the 26" first......

BOOOOO Amazon! "Delivery estimate: We need a little more time to provide you with a good estimate. We'll notify you via e-mail as soon as we have an estimated delivery date.". Living in the first world can be so heart-wrenching. :roll:

Lol Dirtrider. I know; I can be such a fucking whiner. It's like tourettes. I try to cap it, but shit just comes out. :lol:

In related "news". I stumbled onto this bmx social media darling over the weekend. Kudos for high entertainment value! And great editing:

All that cryin' for nothing. Shipped!

As I seemed to have hijacked this thread (sorry, my bad), back to the OP; Inconceivable, have you decided to jump in or are you experiencing analysis paralysis?

Ha. Well, Inconceivable did get a 24" bike, and I have the video evidence to prove it. (At the pump track no less!).

The PL 26 finally arrived today and was quickly assembled. Wifey likey so mission successful. Fun stuff. :D Thanks to Inconceivable for posting the inspiration and 24V for additional inspiration and for the cheap link on Amazon (deal gone - now back at the regular price).

I knew about that, haven't ventured down there yet. Not sure how my vintage BMX would be.

It was a little intimidating for her. Baby steps.

Sorry for the delay... Yes, I did end up buying a 24" BMX bike off of Craigslist. I've taken it out to the pump track that Avidtest showed and can confirm that it's both a lot of fun and pretty tiring in short order. I've taken it out on the streets to try bunny hops and much but much to my disappointment a smaller bike did not make me instantly proficient at manuals and bunny hops. Perhaps I needed the 20" BMX to get the effect I wanted? Nevertheless, I do have a cheapie bike that I can take out whenever I have a few moments so hopefully I'll at least get more practice time in. The pump track is good practice on pumping (duh) and berms too!
