How to choose your BMX bike?
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
