Because BMX is not only for grown ups, FATBMX searched for the hottest bikes and parts for the young ones over at the Eurobike bicycle show in Friedrichshafen, Germany last week. We've gathered photos from the 2014 models from HARO, GT, wethepeople, Radio Bikes and plenty more. Also protection gear for the little ones was a hot item, especially designed for them. And of course the popluar walking bikes, or push bikes, or whatever they call them. They're perfect to get the kids going.
Today we announce the winner of the FATBMX Kids coloring contest. The result on the right was sent in by Joni Drexel from Aichach, Germany. Joni is eight years old and a big BMX fan. He sent a video of himself also. FATBMX Kids will send Joni a sticker package and a video for his winning entry.
Be on the lookout for more online competitions on FATBMX Kids and check back in for updates for the kids every day.
I have been a Travis Pastrana fan for a couple of years. It was nice to meet him at the Nitro Circus Live show in Arnhem last year. I got his autograph there and now I have his shoes. The shoes are so comfortable. They are more like jogging shoes and not so much for riding. But just walking in them feels great since they are so light. Kids in my class like them too.
A few days ago I got a flat tire. I hit a huge nail. My tire was flat fast. I walked home. I had never fixed a flat tire before so this was my first time. When I took the tube out, I saw a small hole on the top and a big hole on the bottom. This tire could not be patched up any more. That's when a visit to Paul's Boutique was made to get a new 18" inner tube. Back home I was ready to put the new tube on the bike. Here is the step by step on how I did it. Maybe it helps you fix your tire next time.
