When it comes to choosing the right BMX there is more to it than just finding one that looks good or finding a cheap BMX. Instead, it is important that you search for one that will be just right for your needs. With the plethora of different bikes available, this will at least help to make the decision somewhat easier, although that does first involve understanding exactly what your needs are.
The bike you choose will vary depending on the style of riding you want to do. There are many different styles from racing to vert to freestyle, and the first step is knowing what each one is. Vert involves using vertical ramps (see what they did there?) to perform tricks and stunts and get as much ‘air’ as possible. This is the kind of riding you will have seen most often at extreme sports shows.
Racing is exactly what it suggests – using your BMX to race others around a track, whilst freestyle is all about doing tricks using objects commonly found around where you live. Once you have decided the style of riding you want to take part in, it will be far easier to hunt down the perfect bike online. However, for those who don’t want to commit to one style, it may well be worth just buying a cheap BMX to start with so that you can try the different styles and work out which you prefer before you commit to the more expensive accessories that will help you master individual disciplines.
The next step will obviously involve finding a great shop to buy one from – and there are plenty of online shops for you to choose from. Now all you need to do is decide your budget and find a design you like and you will be well on your way to enjoying this great sport.
