HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT BICYCLE TO START PRACTICING BMX?

  1. The size of the painting
    It is measured with the horizontal tube , ie the upper tube that joins the steering with the saddle. The larger the tube, the more space you will have to pedal between the pedal and the handlebar.
  2. The height of the handlebar
    The height of the handlebar determines the height of the driving position . An 8-year-old will be more comfortable with a low handlebar, while a teenager or adult will prefer a higher handlebar because they have the highest bust.
  3. The length of the pedal rods
    Normally it varies between 160 and 180 mm. Short cranks allow children or small people not to juggle their bikes. The very large connecting rods are more annoying for the practice of freestyle, but allow a better acceleration in race.
  4. Different BMX teams according to the disciplines
    Some disciplines require particular BMX teams. This is the case of freestyle, especially in street, flat and skatepark. The bikes designed for these practices are equipped with a rotor (a braking system that allows a 360 ° turn of the handlebar ) and of pegs (some calapers necessary to make figures and, occasionally, to take to the friends).
  5. The practice of freestyle requires a reinforced material that supports impacts and falls: a reinforced saddle, double-walled wheels with 36 or 48 spokes, or an ultra-resistant plate.
  6. For dirt, trail and race, tires are usually used with cleats , since the bicycle has to adhere to the earth and mud. In ” street “, in ” flat ” and in skatepark, bicycles are equipped with slick tires to ensure maximum adherence to the asphalt.

How to Clean a BMX Bike

  1. Suspend your BMX bicycle using a bicycle repair bracket. If you do not have one, suspend the motorcycle by using the holding cables or bike holder to hook up your car’s mount.
  2. Fill a bucket with warm water and dishwashing detergent, pour enough dishwashing detergent so a moderate amount of foam forms into the bucket.
  3. Rinse your bicycle with a gentle stream of water from a garden hose.
  4. Dip a large sponge into the detergent and water basin and clean frame, wheels and spokes of the BMX bicycle. Cover thoroughly in foam and wipe away any dirt, mud or dirt.
  5. Remove dirt from hard-to-reach, angled areas on the bicycle using a soft-bristled brush.
  6. Rinse your bike thoroughly with a gentle stream of water from a garden hose, removing the dirt and remaining foam.
  7. Dry the bike thoroughly with a towel.
  8. Apply a very small amount of bicycle lubricant to each individual roller in the bicycle chain. Turn the pedals back to rotate the chain so you can lubricate each roller evenly.
  9. Wipe any excess lubricant off the bike chain with a soft, dry cloth.
  10. Apply a small amount of bicycle lubricant to the pivot points of gearshifts and the brakes of your BMX bike if the bike has.
  11. Tips & Warnings
    Standing on your BMX reverse bike during cleaning increases the risk of getting water into the bike’s bearings. This could cause problems on the line.
