5 Complete BMX Bikes that Don’t Suck


No one likes buying a product that falls apart within the first few months! Buying a junky Walmart bike is a lot like buying a Chinese pair of AirPods. It does not last. Now I’m not saying that Walmart bikes are bad. They are essential to getting people into the sport. But I want to list some good BMX bikes that don’t suck!

This We The People Crysis is a strong mid-level bike. With full Chromoly bars, forks, and frame, you will love riding this durable bike. A lot of work went into designing the Crysis so that it will serve riders. I love the aftermarket parts because that really makes the quality stand out.

All of Fly’s 2020 bikes are superior quality. Anything with this level of quality will last a new rider a long time. I love seeing bikes have double-wall rims and a full Chromoly frame. They even included strong gussets on the frame to prevent snapping.

This bike doesn’t suck due to the fact that it is a Sunday. Sunday as a brand has amazing customer service and will make sure that you love your purchase. While it may be an inexpensive bike, the quality is still pretty decent. It’s a great inexpensive beginner bike.

In comparison to other BMX bikes at this price level, the Kink Gap really wins. For only $379, you can get a Trimoly frame and aftermarket kink parts. Buying aftermarket Kink parts on their own would cost a lot of money.
