What Size of BMX Should I Buy?

BMX bikes don’t quite fall into the same categories of other bikes when it comes to sizing. For many people, they will all be too small, but if you want to ride BMX having a bike that is roughly the right size will make life easier, especially if you’re a child.

We’ve decided to make this easy for you, and we’re going to give you some tables which explain which size of BMX you should buy. There is one caveat to all this though. You might feel you want to ride a different size and if you do, go for it.

You won’t be sitting in position on a BMX for long distances, so favouring a “wrong” size is not wrong, and just your personal taste.
