Really now, Guys, what does a lowend bmx part mean? And the same what does a highend bmx part mean? Enemy and Scrapbikes are considered low end bmx parts, so why not buy a lowend bmx part? Because lowend BMX parts are the only parts my budget could reach, and as you know there are no much well-known BMX Brands in the Philippines, well, there are some but they're already outdated. So why? Thanks for reading. smile)

First of all I would like to applaud you for being the nicest person on here in this crazy nigjt, and low end parts are ok if you are a low end rider. I am NOT buying a full chromoly bike, I don't need that kind of strength and will not waste my money on something I can't push the limits on.

The thing is that if you keep bmxing you will break all that shit. The biggy is 13, you are 15, he is Probably much lighter than you. I wouldnt recommend you to buy low shit, i have destroyed my whole bike in Less than 2 years....

Still, it's a sprocket, my cheap sprocket lasted forever, and mainly because I dont grind, but that part will do you good until it breaks, and when it does, I take it asa sign of improvement.

Yes, Biggy is just about right, it's just a sprocket, and I can only get lowend parts because they're cheap and they're the only one's available in our shop. But the frame I'm planning to buy is an Eastern Mothra, so I guess it would last longer because it's an EASTERN PRODUCT, and the only lowend parts to be on my bike are the pedals, headset, seat, seatpost, rear hub, spokes, stem, front hub, sprocket, I guess almost everything but not the frame and cranks. smile

They were used parts from a FIT BIKE CO. bike, nothing special, heck, what you plan on is better than mine, but it seems you deserve it.

Oh dude, never buy used BMX parts, a tip of advice, because the last time I bought a used BMX frame there was already a weld on the downtube and I only used it for 2 months and it was already broken. What model from FIT BIKE CO. ? Are those you're holding are Fit Flow 2008 Series? Or not.

@zagadax
If you are planning on buying eastern products, be sure to buy from a trusted dealer. Because I saw a lot of fake eastern products in every LBS that i went to like in QUIAPO/RECTO. I also contacted eastern about the products that was sold there and almost all the parts I showed them weren't the real deal.

Oh and also I just learned that Scrapbikes and Enemy were low end. Because for me I see them as High end parts, since I can't afford their parts. I just bought the scrapbikes 12T freecoaster because it was a really cheap ($40). I ride flat with a heavy hi ten steel frame. I just need a 28T sprocket and a sealed bearing cranks (I still have 36T sprocket and Looseball US BB it looks like a 3 piece crank but the internals are for 1piece) my bike was around 30-33lbs.

Buy what you can afford, BUT when you break it upgrade with something lighter, stronger and Chromoly. Who cares if it is not high end when you are new to the sport?

Inspect it before you buy it. Doesn't matter if it is used. ALWAYS inspect it.

I have some friends that ride low end parts and abuse them. Just means you need to buy parts more often.

I buy used low end parts most of the time cause they are cheap. As what dave said. ALWAYS Inspect before paying.

I've broke high end parts, everything breaks. If you ride fairly hard dont waste your time or money with low end parts theyll break. maybe a low end pair of pedals, bottom bracket, headset, seat etc. all that shits pretty much the same but dont cheap out on cranks,bars,forks or frame. breaking that shit aint fun.

I just broke some sinz xxx elite cranks and forks. That is high end. But I got them second hand from a dude at the track that got new bombshells, I ride intense bikes so it was a perfect fit considering they are like brother/sister companies.
