Want to get into riding but cant decide what you want to ride? Well you came to the right place because hopefully this will answer all your questions.

Dirt

Dirt is for all the kids who love going huge with lots of rhythm and flow. To start is easy because you can start off at what ever level you want and change it as you progress. If you have a clear, flat path thats pretty long, you can start your own trails. You wont get made fun of as much because you dont have to be around people while you are starting, but it helps because they can give you tips. You dont have to pay anything to ride because the trails belong to you. Bad parts are maintaining your trails from rain, vandals, and other things. If you go extreme on larger jumps you might slam pretty hard from so high up, but its onto dirt so itís a little better. You dont really need a specific bike for trails as long as it has a pretty long toptube.

Street/Park

Street is awesome if you have the right stuff to ride. The area where you live might have things that are too hard to learn at first or so easy that its not fun after about a week. Some areas donít have any opportunities for street at all so you might not want to ride. Street is cool because you can do a million different things off one object. Like if you 180 feeble onto a ledge and barspin off. If you live in the city I say definitely get into street as soon as possible. Park is awesome if you have one of good size in the area. The ramps are all wood or concrete and sometimes indoors. You have to pay every time to get into most parks unless they offer yearly memberships or they are funded by the local government. They are usually set up so you can learn easily and progress and there are usually older better people that are glad to help you out.

Flatland

ok I donít ride flatland so donít kill me if this is the wrong description. Flatland has a lot of flow and balance to it. You need a very good balance point to do flatland. The tricks are pretty difficult to learn but look awesome when linked together. Falling isnít usually as bad as with dirt or street because you are always on the ground so its pretty low impact. But donít think its never going to hurt, one slip and you might never be able to have children or a peg might go into your chest. For flatland you need a bike thatís lighter than a freestyle bike. Also it should have a short toptube about 18 or 19 inches with scuff room. And all you need to ride Is a wide open space like a parking lot.

Racing

Racing is going fast and competing. Like all other styles of riding, racing requires a lot of patience. You wont come in first in your first race unless you have had previous training. It may take a few weeks or even months to even place but donít give up. Racing requires a lot of time and staying fit if you want to progress in the sport. You need a light bike with a pretty high gear ratio so you can have higher top speeds. Also you need a local track that you can go to every week to compete.
