Does anyone know anything about this bike - is it worth 50 odd quid, or should I invest in a better one for my son?

How old is your son?

He's nearly 8 - don't even know if it would be the right size for him, but he's been going on about wanting a BMX for a while now...

Take him to a shop to size him up....you are under no obligation to buy from them, but it will save you wasting your money on a bike that is to small.

most of the bmx's with 20" wheels are for aged 7+
because as the kids get bigger the bike gets easier to do tricks on they last longer than you think too!

I was going to pop into the shop, but I was just wondering if the bike's actually any good, or if it's the usual Sports Direct tactics, showing an RRP that is astronomic & the bike would never have sold for anyway...?

As with most things - you get what you pay for - and I think when it comes to bikes this is a big thing.
However if your son isnt bothered about doing all the tricks and jumps on it (my son is 7 and I have got him this bike hotukdeals.com/dea…473 as it is a good make and a good spec).
This Dunlop one may be enough for what you are after so it may be worth popping in and checking it out.

If it just for gong to the park or riding up and down on the pavement....it will be fine.

Thanks for your comments - I guess I'll have a think & consult my bank account before I make my mind up!

20" wheels should be OK for an 8 year old (though my daughter has long legs and got a 24" wheeled bike when she was 8 - so worth checking in a local bike shop). For cycling to the park, etc. this seems OK for £50. It doesn't have full suspension like the usual supermarket junk (which you don't want unless you're paying several hundred pounds!). If you're wanting to go on family cycle rides it might be worth spending more on something with an aluminium frame to make it lighter so it's easier for him to keep up.

No, they're all cheap bikes. But for playing in the park it's OK.

i was going to get this bike for my 10year old son. is this going to be too small for him?

The idea with BMX bikes is that they are small - it makes life easier when doing tricks etc. If you see the pro's on their bikes it looks like they are on kids bikes.

Plus you can pimp it up by adding accessories - stunt nuts, mushroom grips - even get some mag wheels for it - I've just bought one - with apprehension at first but once I read that it had a 360 Gyro I was sold. When I was a boy I had a Falcon bmx which was pretty standard and I thought it was the mutts nuts - not everyone needs a raleigh burner or a rickman freestyle. If he gets into tricks later though you might find he wants to upgrade.

it is a very good buy and sportsdirect have a great bargain on at the moment take the chance a get the bike

I'm about to order this bike and saw stunt pegs. Says they fit 10mm axles. Will they fit this bike?

HELP........

One of the brakes is sticking to the wheel frame and not releasing one bit, help please
