How to choose your BMX bike?

  1. Type of BMX you want to practice
    In case you do not know, the BMX has different modalities, which include speed BMX (like the one practiced by Mariana Pajón) and BMX acrobatics. For each of these modalities there is a suitable type of bicycle.
    Classic BMX: The type of classic BMX bike (known as cross bikes), are the first models of frames that fit any type of practice, you can go to ride quickly or do some floor tricks and jumps that do not involve impacts Too strong.
    Freestyle Bike: Unlike the classic frame, this is a little shorter (depending on each size) as it is necessary to have greater maneuverability to do floor tricks and jumps . The small size of the frame facilitates the movements of the body.
    Racing: More similar to a classic frame, the frame is a bit larger and longer, in order to facilitate a constant steady pedaling.
  2. Choose your size
    As in road bikes or MTB, there are sizes. Regardless of whether you find the bike you want made of steel or aluminum, you will find them in the following sizes:
    Mini: Children from 4 to 6 years.
    Junior: Children from 7 to 9 years.
    Expert: Children from 10 to 13 years.
    Professional: More than 13 years, including adults.
  3. Beware of the tires
    Although you may have the right frame, you need to pay close attention to the wheels that are installed on your bike. In addition to the shells that should be adapted if you are going to roll on sand or cement, ie speed or stunts, it is necessary to define if they are wheels of 48 or 32 rays. The 48-spoke wheels are unique to BMX acrobatics , as they must withstand strong impacts, while the 32-spoke wheels are used for speed , although professional BMX adds or reinforces some of these to withstand falls.

TUTORIAL CLEANING / MAINTENANCE BMX

  1. Washing : it must be done on return: the mud is not yet dry, so it is easier.
    DO NOT USE a high-pressure cleaner: Pressurized water will penetrate all bearings (even those labeled as watertight).
    Use the classic garden jet, a little soapy water (dishwashing liquid why not). For small corners: toothbrush, swab.
    Once washed, NEVER allow the bike to dry alone! Use a soft, absorbent and CLEAN cloth, otherwise you will scratch your beautiful paint … ideal for drying: compressor blower.
  2. The chain : clean with water, dry with a cloth. Do not grease!
    Instead, use WD40 and remove excess with a cloth. A chain must be dry to the touch . Attention to the WD40: do not mix it with greases because it will dilute them!
    Your chain “cracks”: it may be full of dust, sand, in this case: disassemble it, soak it in gasoline, once clean, dry it, then lubricate it with a Teflon lubricant.
    It must be taut enough not to “beat” but not too much: you should not have a hard point on pedaling or pedaling (in this case it “pulls” on the freewheel which prematurely uses chain and wheel free).
  3. The brakes: degreasing rim / trichlo or acetone pads and from time to time: fine sandpaper (400 or 600) on the rims (on the area of contact with the shoes).
  4. The “classic” freewheels:
    She cracks? Disassemble it, clean it with petrol (soak). Then you can let it run dry, it will not wear out faster than a freewheel greased and full of sand …
    The crankset cracks: it is usually necessary to dismantle cranks (pull crank) then the cuvettes of the crankcase bottom (specific tool also). To remove cracks or squeaks: clean the threads of the bowls and the frame and grease the whole (white grease or waterproof grease) then reassemble.
  5. Tire pressure: variable according to the size of the tire and the weight of the driver: from 3.5 to 5.5 bar. To be monitored regularly and at least once a week. Driving under inflation will expose you to pinching when you receive the jumps and the bike will behave less healthily (the tire will deform during pedaling and cornering).
