The sport of bicycle motocross, or BMX as it is more widely known, first came to prominence in the USA in the early 970s. It was designed as a stepping stone for youngsters to get into motocross, and quickly developed into a popular and enduring sport in its own right. BMX bikes are fantastic starter models for young riders, thanks to their compact size and relative simplicity. They are typically based around 20in wheels, although other wheel sizes are also used. BMX bikes available from Anaconda are suitable for kids from 7+ years or 5cm and taller

What does BMX stand for?
BMX stands for Bicycle Motorcross, a sport that has been around since the 1970s. When you think of BMX bikes, you mostly think of people doing tricks and racing around dirt tracks. However, they're also great for getting around town or for kids, because they are strong and simple to ride.
The first thing you might notice when looking at BMX bikes is that a lot of them only come in one size. This is because BMX riders are more focused on control than comfort over long distances. The small frames are easy to move around, and the rider can move around easily on the bike to do tricks.
What other features do BMX bikes have?
BMX bikes are known for having strong frames. Because they are often used for stunt riding and riding over rough ground, they need a strong frame. BMX bikes often start with a steel frame, to give plenty of strength. On more advanced BMX bikes, the frames will be made from materials like Chromoly steel, which makes them lighter and stronger too!
Another thing to look out for on a BMX bike is the gearing. BMX bikes only have one gear, but the cogs themselves will be very small. This helps to give lots of clearance under the bike, so the gears don't hit anything when you're doing tricks.
