BMX bikes are becoming increasingly popular because of their plentiful outstanding features and they are much different from ordinary bikes. To pick the right bike, apart from some common features such as two wheels, one seat, and handlebars, you need to know more disparities between a BMX bike and a road bike or a mountain bicycle that amateurs can barely tell. What are they? Let find out in this post.
What is BMX Bike?
While the regular bike is one of the most common means of transportation in numerous countries, “BMX” is probably an unfamiliar term.
“BMX” stands for bicycle motocross. It’s famous for the ability to cross different terrains such as dirt, street, and flatland. Based on various features and ideal use, BMX bikes are divided into 3 types which are BMX, Freestyle, and Jump.
When it comes to BMX- a dirt-ready race bike, it used for dirt races, especially, it can go fast through rough and short distances due to a lightweight frame and super strong brake. Freestyle is a perfect option for cyclists who are learning and performing stunts and tricks as it has pavement-ready tires and ultra-beefy frame. Jump (also called Dirt Jump) is a perfect fusion of two types above with dual functions including carving trails and jumping ramps.
