Looking to build out an Amero or just want to learn the details?

Not sure of which bottom bracket, headset or brakes to buy?

I was in the exact same position and on top of that I was not 100% fluent in BMX components. With time and research I figured it out and created this post so I have all the info in one place and can help others

Did I miss something? Email me and I will get it added to the post.
