Greetings fellow BMXers-
I just got this BMX bike and I'm looking forward to my first outing. I would like some advice on what type of uniform I should be wearing for protection against injury. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I think this is still appropriate. I found your sixth grade picture when you tried out for the BMX team......

Ha ha, very funny everyone. Thanks for all your "help". I guess you can't tell when I'm being serious and when I'm not!

You're right Boris and I apologize for making fun of a thread that was posted so you could get info on BMX needs.I do know riders used to wear breast plates when doing motocross to prevent chest injuries.Here is a picture of a breast plate you should obtain when you compete.

I don't believe I've ever seen any type of horn used when people are BMXing. Why not? I think it would be a good idea to let other BMXers know that you're behind them and would like to pass. Also, do they make any 10 speed BMX's with skinny tires?

Yes, they make a ten speed BMX bike with skinny tires, it’s called a cyclo cross bike, a very muddy winter bike sport, loads of fun!

They use only a single chainring in the front nowadays so the chain doesn’t fall off all the time...LOL, and 11 cogs in the rear these days! Unreal gearing.

All very interesting to be sure, but you still haven't addressed the issue of which would be the coolest horn to use.

I do like the small wheels and frames of BMX bikes.They make short people look taller when riding them.
