BMX Race Bikes



Within BMX there are 2 disciplines. Race and Freestyle. Race BMX bikes are used on BMX race tracks with up to 8 racers on a track made of hard-packed dirt or asphalt featuring rolling jumps and bermed corners.

BMX race bikes emphasize light-weight, fast rolling tires and are sized to match the size of the racer which includes crank length, frame length, tire width, handlebar rise and width.

These are for the smallest of riders - 4 or 5 year olds. These will sometimes have 20x1 1/8 wheels but usually 18x1. These bikes are made to be as small and light as possible. Crank length is typically about 130mm

Pro, XL, XXL


Basically once you reach the pro sized bikes and bigger, you're catering to strong, powerful riders - just of different sizes. The biggest difference in size is the length of the frame's top-tube. Pros are usually about 20" top tube, about 21" for XL then add 1/4" to 1/2" for each size increase. All these changes and interpretations of rider needs differ from one brand to the next.

Cruiser


In BMX Lingo, a cruiser is a bike with 24" wheels. Cruiser Race Bikes are often used by older riders who enjoy the more forgiving nature of the big-wheeled BMX bikes.

Park/street Bikes




BMX Freestyle (aka park bikes, street bikes) bikes are built with durability and ability to do tricks as the main criteria. Typically BMX bikes have 20" wheels but 16" and 18" are used for small riders and there are some niche bikes with 22" or 24" wheels for tall riders.

BMX bike prices vary based on frame material (Hi-Tensile Steel on cheaper bikes, Cromolly on light/stronger more expensive bikes). Other factors on bikes are the types of bearings, quality of materials, manufacturing techniques to make the bikes stronger and lighter. Most BMX street bikes these days have only a rear brake yet it is very common to have no brakes on the bikes.

Sizing BMX Bikes



BMX bikes are pretty much designed to be small relative to the size of the rider. This puts the rider in a powerful position over the bike, able to lift and control the bike. Seats are typically set quite low to stay out of the way during tricks and the bikes are almost never ridden while seated - the seat is used while waiting on the edge of a bowl at the skatepark waiting to take a run. Once the riding starts the rider is standing, not sitting. Remember this when buying jr. sized BMX bikes (16" and 18" wheeled BMX bikes). If a kid fits a 20" kids mountain bike it probably means the right sized BMX would have 16" or 18" wheels. The other part of sizing, once you're into a 20" wheeled BMX is top tube length (how long the frame is). Small frames (20" to 20.5") are typically for smaller riders and/or riders into very technical tricks. Bigger frames (20.5" to 21.5") typically suit taller riders or riders who are into big air, big jumps.
