Hello everyone!

Hope you guys can help me out. I want to do some cycling...mainly casual around parks and pavements across the country, not the adventurous 'chiong sua' sort haha.

I own an extremely old and untouched for very long BMX that has become VERY rusty..the entire handlebar is covered in rust and the frame and chain are also pretty badly rusted. I have also left the bike on the floor in my storeroom for years (!) and hence the tyres have been 'pressed'/flattened down on the same spot...

Do you guys think I should try to 'revive' my old bicycle or will I be better off getting a new one? If I'm to get a new one, would I be able to get a decent casual bike for around SGD200-250?

Thanks so much!

the frames are different. 08 should not be more expensive than 09 model logically.

Pedal or crankset? Could be your pedal bearing? Could be your Bottom bracket? Or slightly yr chain?

I haven't seen a stainless steel frame available commercially yet.

I think 2 yrs ago in the taiwan bike show, there was a Reynolds 953 stainless steel tubing on exhibition. But until now i haven seen any company adopting them yet

i juz went night cycling with my frens. and the clicking noise disappear.. lols. lucky if not have to cycle all the way to bike shop.

reading thru the thread, i found out that to degrease the chain, u guys normally use kerosene(correct me if im wrong), once u degrease it alr, what u guys use to grease it back? pardon me, im still learning.. =D

Chain lube. But I use GT85 which is cleaner, but does not last long.

When u lube, dont lube th chain ring and cassette, just lube the links (center part the bushing there will do)

The more lube u apply, blacker your drivetrain will be.

Lao Jiaos use WD40.

remember to wash off the kerosene first.

Hey everyone, just wondering, does anyone here do Flatland BMX and has an actual frame designed for Flatland? If so, I just wanna know how much you got your's for (picture recommended, or a description will be fine).
