BMX bikes enable you to do far more than just ride, as theyre specially designed to perform a range of jumps, tricks and stunts. Their unique design features an upright handlebar position with a low seat and small, wide tyres. This distinctive combination allows for fast steering and ease of movement through the air.
BMX bikes are motocross bikes that are suitable for all terrains. They are just as comfortable to ride in skate parks as they are on purpose-built tracks and courses with obstacles such as jumps, banked corners and rollers.
Whether you intend to use a BMX bike for racing or practising stunts, there are thousands of used and new options to choose from. Popular brands include Mongoose, WeThePeople, GT, Diamondback, Sunday, Redline, MINI, Haro and mafiabikes.
Choosing your BMX bike
While BMX riding requires a high level of skill, confidence and dexterity, its a sport that can be adapted for people of all ages. Childrens and adults BMX bike sizes are available and you can choose from a wide selection of boys, girls, womens, mens and unisex frames here on eBay.
The majority of BMX bikes are compact in their design and made from steel, aluminium or chromoly, which is a steel alloy. These strong materials provide stability and durability while allowing a rider to be agile. Frame sizes range from 11 inches through to 29 inches, with half sizes also available.
Although adult BMX bike wheels vary in size from 16 to 26 inches, 20 inches is the most popular. Childrens wheel sizes are available in 10, 12 and 14 inches.
Youll find a BMX bike frame to suit every taste. Black, white, blue, red and green are the most common colours, however, silver, purple, pink, orange, grey, yellow and gold options are also available.
