BMX bikes for kids are often a good first-time rider bike. While they are not great for long-rides, they can be used as an all-around street bike or a bike to provide an off-road thrill. A lightweight bike that can easily take to the air is going to make jumping and turning easier on a dirt or paved track. It also makes controlling a bike easier for a beginner. For sizing, consider the length of the top tube, which can run from about 19” to 22”. Some of the determination on length will be based on preference, some on your height, or the height of your child. Consider the diameter of the wheel, which generally run about 20” but can be slightly smaller or larger. Pedals are often plastic, which are inexpensive, easy to replace, and tend not to hurt as much in a fall. Pedals also come in metals like aluminum. Some BMX bikes for younger kids come with training wheels.
