    Moving to the sport from BMX, any advice?

    Hi,

    I have been riding bmx for about 5 Years now and decided that I would like to expand my extreme sports repertoire to downhill/freeride aswell however I have been plagued by a lack of basic knowledge.
    My first question is should I begin with freeride or downhill and what, if any, are the differences between them.

    Once i have that figured out, I will have to choose hard tail or softail, any advice on their advantages and disadvantages would be greatly appreciated.

    I understand that I could get a lot of this information from Google but I think it will be better to ask here as quite frankly I will get a better answer.

    All the best,

    Robbie

    Where do you live? What (where) do you think you want to ride? (lift parks, shuttle, etc) How much do you want to spend?

    If you live by a bike park, rent a dh/fr bike for the day and go from there. If not see if you could hop on a mtb at your local shop and see if it might be a path worth choosing.
