Disc brakes are the future in BMX. Tons of bikes over here in Europe with discs. My favorite is the Josh Bicycles version.

Here's another pro sized cruiser I built up last week. Nothing fancy with this one but still weighs 8.66 kg. A little bit a titanium and carbon fiber here and there. It's my main bike that I ride and it's super fast with 36-13 gearing.

Damn dude, these are awesome. You're making me want to build one now. I've been thinking about building a simple BMX that I can use when riding with my son. Any kind of weight limit on this?

I built this Dyno up a few years ago, but it weighs more than a tank.

It's all about power-to-weight... tanks are not such a big deal for us adults.
