Buy High-Quality BMX Bikes from Blue Cycles Starting at a Cheap $399
Compact, steel or aluminium-framed bikes with wheel pegs and fat tyres are the signature characteristics of BMX bikes. Short for “bicycle motocross” this bike style was initially designed for use on motocross tracks. Today, “BMX bike” has become an umbrella term for the style while uses extend past dirt track racing into tricks and transportation. Today, enthusiasts young and old buy BMX for traversing parks, pavements, and flatlands to perform gravity-defying tricks. Although sporting a simple design, be sure to research before you buy BMX bikes. These complex machines feature fine details that are optimised for specified usages and terrain. Blue Cycles has been Darwin’s cycling hub since 2012. We’ve gained our community’s trust through active engagement via bike care workshops, supplying mechanical support at sponsored community events, and by assisting with community project fundraising. Let us help you select the right BMX bike to buy based on your specified interests.
Buy BMX Bikes
BMX bikes sit low to the ground and minimise the number of moving parts. This provides better handling for trick work on the ground or in the air. For this reason, BMX bikes do not have multiple gears. Popularised by the 1971 documentary, ‘On Any Sunday,’ credited for drawing attention to motocross, kids began modifying their bikes to resemble the featured bicycles. They wanted to race and get big air off dirt-packed mounds as seen in the film. Relieved parents were happy to buy BMX as they were cheaper and safer than motorised motocross cycles while still allowing enthusiastic youths to ride, race, and catch air on dirt tracks.
However, not everyone who wanted to buy BMX had access to dirt tracks or obstacle courses, and Bob Haro pioneered the new style BMX freestyle in the late 70s. In freestyle, the emphasis is on tricks which are performed anywhere space will allow. Much like free-running and parkour, BMX freestyle utilises the environment available to defy gravity. Competitive BMX has entered the mainstream circuit with events around the world and was awarded Olympic Event status in 2008. Designated parks have created challenging obstacle courses (bowls, ramps, rails, stairs, etc.) for riders situated out of car and foot traffic throughways. This keeps tricksters safe and avoids traffic interference.
