Buy A Bmx For Christmas 2017

Here is a re-post of this useful blog as Christmas is just 10 weeks away. 

We at Belfast City BMX club want to promote the sport of BMX racing within Northern Ireland, but understand that it’s new to most kids and parents alike, and therefore can be confusing how to get involved.

Getting the right bike is critical, as there are many different BMX bikes, for street/ park, dirt jumping, flatland and BMX racing.

Although similar in appearance race bikes generally have aluminium frames for lightness, thinner tyres & a single rear “V” type brake & also do not have stunt pegs or gyros. The geometry of the frames is also different as they are built for speed rather than doing tricks.

BMX bikes are not “a one size fits all” bike & it is important to choose the correct size and type of bike. All too often we see youngsters on bikes that are too big or small & this can cause poor bike control.

What a night we had thanks to the guys of Thunderaction Sports/ Urban Excel. We were treated to an awesome display of BMX freestyle in the Bowl at Bridges. Thanks guys !!! Please give their page a like. We had seriously cool stickers, badges, water bottles and certificates for the kids. They all took 10 minutes out of their busy scooter/ bmx schedules to get these little awards for their hard work and efforts over the past 4 weeks.
