Drop the kickstand, first of all. The components (everything but the frame) can be replaced with lighter, stronger parts, but if the bike is a generic one (not a high-end bike), then you may just want to spend the money on a lighter and better bike.

My passport expires in August, I have travel plans to Spain on 13 May for 1 week. Is my current passport still valid?


passport is valid until august when it expires, however traveling to spain require you to have a valid passport that still valid 3 months after you plan to leave spain.

as it would be very close to that if your passport expires late august, i would recommend to get a new passport. they are valid for 10 years. and if it saves you trouble while out traveling it be worth it :)

Anyone know anything about bmxs?


Though originally denoting a bicycle intended for BMX Racing, the term "BMX bike" is now used to encompass race bikes, as well as those used for the dirt, vert, park, street, flatland and BMX freestyle disciplines of BMX. BMX frames are made of various types of steel, and (largely in the racing category) aluminum.

Hubs screw bit is too short for pegs


The "hubs screw is called an axle, and you did not really ask a question. Unless you want to depend on the pegs to hold your wheel on you will need to get a longer axle and take apart the entire hub to replace it.

I took the pegs off my son's mongoose outer liit freestyle bike (20") and now cannot figure out how to put them back on. I am not sure what to do with the silver washer?????


The silver washer will go between the frame of the bike and the peg. Then the nut for the wheel bolt will go into the peg and screw on from the inside of the peg. Unless they are solid pegs in which case you will put the washer on first still and then screw the peg on as if it were the nut itself.

How to put the pegs on?


You need to have a BMX bike with a threaded axle. A bike with quick releases will not work.

The first thing you're going to want to do is go ahead and loosen the bolts on that side of the rim, take the bolts completely off, along with your spacers, pull them off and then you'll slide the peg onto the axle. And you're going to have to have an extension to get into the peg. The easiest way to get the peg on is to take it, put your bolt, your washer and then slide your peg into place on this, or you can put it on there and then you just slide it on, and then tighten your bolt back down, and that will hold your peg into place

When was the first BMX bike invented?


Hard to put an exact date on it because BMX evolved from kid's mimmicking their motocross heroes on dirt hills using 20" bikes (typically Schwinn Stingrays).

The first bicycle made specifically to mimmick the motocross riders that early BMX riders were mimmicking was the Yamaha Moto-Bike in 1973.

BMX became "official" in 1974 when George E. Esser founded the NBL, which officially sanctioned BMX races.

The first official BMX bike (bike made specifically for the sport of BMX), with the frame design as we know it today, was in late 1974 with the introduction of the Redline Squareback.

No traction. Is there somthing you can put on the tires.


yes there are traction bands or some have used bmx tires screwed to the tires. these will help but so shorten the life of the gears, so i dont recomend it, but no traction is very frustrating.
good luck!
