WHILE YOU ARE
PLEASE consider buying some of the hot bikes
we show below
for your children!
FREESTYLE AND BMX
stands for Bicycle Moto Cross. These bikes are
descendant from motorcycles that are used for short
track racing. BMX racing is still very popular
all over the world. This highly visual sport makes for
a lot of dream bikes in the eyes of youngsters.
The great thing about them is that they are simple,
durable and because they come one-size-fits all, kids
don't physically outgrow them. Yes, the
6'5" pros that race BMX ride the same size bike
that your 4' 9-year old wants! We carry simple,
inexpensive BMX bikes as well as high caliber racing
bikes...our selection is extensive....bring the kids
down to the store!
= TRICK RIDING! Typically, a
freestlye bike is designed for doing complicated
manuevers on land or in the air. They come with
front and rear brakes and usually two sets of axle
The newest type of BMX
pretty much designed with one purpose in mind....being
launched off ramps by professional riders! The
higher and farther the better and the biggest crash
usually gets the most applause! They are also
called trail bikes, because they are beefy enough to
withstand the rigors of rough trail rides as
well. These bikes are as durable as it
gets...again, they are on-size fits all, simple and
practical for what most youngins' need!
The stunts you see and read about are performed by
pros and come with great risk. NEVER ride your bike
without a helmet and other appropriate safety
gear! And NEVER attempt tricks or moves that are
beyond your abilities just because you saw or read
about them somewhere. Start slow and gain
command of your skills with small steps!
