Replacing BMX parts for repair and customisation

For the BMX rider who takes his or her bike seriously, regularly changing BMX parts can be as much a part of developing as a rider as practising stunts and manoeuvres. When adjustments do not achieve desired improvements in handling and performance, or when a part is obviously damaged, an experienced BMX rider will be keen to obtain a replacement part as soon as possible.

BMX however is not only about substituting BMX parts for components that are identical in brand and make, but also about customisation. A BMX rider will often be eager to try a particular brand of component. This could be as basic as a new set of pedals, or as fundamental as a new frame.
Customisation can also extend to improving the look of a bike. BMX parts come in a variety of colours, motifs and geometry, enabling a rider to create a unique aesthetic for his or her bike.
One of the reasons a BMX lends itself so easily to customisation is that there are fewer BMX parts per bike compared with the number of components on a standard bike.

There is, for example, only one gear on a BMX bike. This, and the fact that many new BMX parts are usually compatible with a whole host of other BMX parts, makes BMX maintenance relatively straightforward.A wise BMX rider, however, can seek expert advice before changing BMX parts.
