I know you probably know what these bikes are. However, there is no harm in reading this short little intro to the bike type. And perhaps some of the readers might be unclear what these are.
BMX Actually stands for “bicycle motocross”. These bicycles are basically built for off-road, stunt and other various types of cycling; including freestyle. These bikes look really cool. Probably because of vibrant color they offer. Normally, these bikes are available in 16″ to 26″ wheel. The most popular wheel size in 20″
What Wheel size usually suits:
- Younger and Smaller Riders — 16 to 18
- Most Average Riders —- 20
- Taller riders —- Anything greater than 20.
