Frequently Asked Questions About BMX Bikes

Standard BMX bikes feature a 20" diameter wheel, which is the truest size for BMX bikes. However, BMX bikes are available in a range of sizes from 12" to 24" to accommodate different rider heights. Kids' BMX bikes use smaller wheel sizes to create a more manageable bike while preserving the classic BMX bike feel. In race bikes, all wheels are 20" in diameter, but smaller bikes utilize thinner tyres to reduce drag and save weight.

The best BMX bike for street riding depends on your personal preference and riding style, but there are key factors to consider. A strong and durable frame is essential to withstand the impact of drops and tricks, with chromoly frames being a popular choice among BMX street riders. Additionally, a short wheelbase, steep head angle, and low bottom bracket height enhance manoeuvrability and make it easier to perform spins.
