About BMX Bikes
BMX biking took off in the early 1970's, originally children began racing their BMX's around dirt tracks. This trend was thought to be inspired by the motorcross scene and it's superstars. By the late 1970's BMX racing had soared in popularity with many children choosing BMX style bikes as their first preference for a bike. Today BMX is still very popular amongst kids but also appeals to many adult riders, particularly after the introduction of BMX race events in the Olympic Games.
Though BMX bike racing is potentially the most well known style of BMX riding there are a few other categories of BMX riding that attract a lot of enthusiasts. These styles being; Freestyle/Flatland BMX, Trick/Park BMX & Vert/Jump BMX riding. Freestyle entails the rider moving around the bike using urban terrain (stairs, handrails, benches) to perform maneuvers over and around the obstacles in a stylish manner. Trick/Park BMX riding is often conducted at skate parks where riders use the ramps, trails & jumps to perform impressive tricks, mostly aerial. Vert/Jump riding is about getting massive air time from jumps whilst performing aerial maneuvers and landing, this is perhaps the most extreme style of BMX riding.
