How do I build my Supercross Shine? #bigbmx fun!

Since we are a BMX racing company, we get asked a TON, how do I build my Supercross Shine? I know, it's foreign to a lot of people, a Mountain Bike ( Big BMX is what I like to call it ) and our Shine is the perfect animal to get going on. it's a hardtail ( I know a strange term, but it means no rear suspension )  and can be build single speed like a BMX bike with our optional BMX dropouts , or if you want, Multi speed for 4x racing, or even like a mild version of a Mountain bike.

So here are 2 build lists that we came up with to show how to build up your Supercross BMX Shine in either the singlespeed or the Multi speed variation.  And you don't have to follow these recomendations exactly, you can change them up as you feel fit, but it will give you a good start on building up your personal Supercross Shine and get you out riding and shredding the Pump Tracks and Trails around your neighborhood.  So if you have read this far, it means you are interested, so take a look below.

Now our personal favorite way to build the Supercross Shine is as a single speed shredder. It keeps it as BMX as possible but still lets you rip the big wheels.

And there you go.  As you can see we don't use a front brake on these builds, you can, but why would you. after all, lets keep it simple.... KISS.
