True BMX bikes started it all, back in the late sixties. They were knockoffs of motocross motorcycles and were designed for racing over jumps and around berms in the dirt. Pretty soon kids everywhere had them, racers or not. BMX bikes are still designed for racing, although you don't have to race to enjoy the light weight, speed and dirt worthiness of these machines. They usually have 20-inch wheels (24-inch-wheel "cruisers" are the exception), knobby tires, upright handlebars with crossbars, small saddles, long cranks and rear hand brakes. The frames are light and sturdy, and the higher the price, the lighter they get.

BMX bikes are generally made of chromoly steel or aluminum. Chromoly frames are a bit heavier and more economical. Aluminum frames are lighter and are often made of oversize or exotically shaped tubing. Besides weighing less, aluminum is also rustproof. So, if you scratch your frame, there's no need to rush to touch it up.

Freestyle/Park Bikes
Redline street race bikes at Talbot's serving San Bruno Francisco Mateo Redwood City
Freestyle bikes entered the scene shortly after BMX bikes. Rather than racing, the freestyle bike's ideal use is for flatland tricks, aggressive street riding and getting vertical at skateparks. It's also a great bike for riding to school, the store and the pool. Super-sturdy construction is a higher priority than light weight. The wheels are usually heavy-duty models with 48 wire spokes. The tires are 20 x 2.125 or wider, with fairly smooth treads, because they're predominantly pavement pounders. Axle pegs are often included (riders stand on them for stunts), although some manufacturers leave them off so you can choose your own. Freestyle bikes come with front and rear brakes. The front cable is routed through a "rotor" or "detangler," which allows the handlebars to be spun completely around without tangling the brake cable.

24" Cruisers
Redline Cruiser bikes at Talbot's serving Burlingame San Mateo Redwood City
Cruisers started out being "Dad's" bike at the local races. As riders grow, they still like the nimble handling of the BMX style bike but need something a bit taller and faster. Styled after the different categories of BMX bikes, cruiser offer a better fit for the taller rider and a little higher gearing for faster 'round town spins or more speed to hit that jump.
