Hey guys! I' a BMX Flat Lander, my name is Mario and I ride for Team Extreme and I'm going to be showing you some BMX tips and hints. We're going to look at how to use a BMX bike. Now you have your bike, you obviously want to know the proper ways to use it.
Now the first thing to remember is always use your bike responsibly and safely. Those are the two key things before you do any kind of stunt work or riding around the road, you need to know how to use your bike safely. You also need to make sure that it's all I working order, everything is fine and safe.
With a BMX, to use it correctly, obviously you choose which discipline you want to get in to. You learn that discipline but it's important that you learn it the correct way and a safe way. Go to the correct places to ride your bike; don't just pick anywhere in general public, there's a chance of crashing in to people or accidents in the road.
There's always designated areas-- skate parks, vert ramps, velodromes, and BMX tracks or even places like this where its open and its empty so you're not going to get to any bother crashing in to anybody or anything like that. Just be responsible and safe and make sure your bike is always maintained. After you've used your BMX bike, it's very important to look after it as well.
Every time you've had a session on it, or you've been to the vert ramp, or you've ridden your flat land, once you've come back home it doesn't hurt to give it a little clean down. If you've been to a place that's really dusty or wet and muddy, clean that off because you don't want your bike to rust. If you leave it anywhere where it's going to get moisture, condensation, you're going to have problems in a few months time.
The last thing you want is your bike rusting, especially around the chain area, around the headset area or your brakes. Try and store in a nice place either in your house or in a shed and also have locks. Make sure you have a padlock with you, a good sturdy one so when you are out and about, you know your bike is going to be secure.
You can padlock it anywhere, to fences to lamp posts, to railings, anything like that just keep it safe, you've worked to get your bike, make sure you hang on to it and just look after it in general. It doesn't hurt to clean it regularly, make sure everything is greased and oiled especially if you're in an area which gets a lot of rain. You want to make sure that when you go home you don't just put your bike and let it dry on its own.
Get a cloth on it and wipe it all down, get that moisture off and then you will find that by doing that you will find that your bike will last a lot longer, it will feel a lot better to ride and you will just have a better riding experience on a bike that feels nice all the time.
