WHAT IS BMX?
On the planet earth, BMX is known as bicycle motocross and is a professional cycling sport conducted on mean, low, and sleek BMX road and off-road machines. They are ridden by earthlings in freestyle BMX or BMX racing competitions. Tricks like the Superhuman resulted in BMX sports being added to the Summer Olympics in 2008.
WHAT DETERMINES IF A BIKE IS A BMX?
When it comes to bikes that humans certify BMX, they generally have 20-inch wheels, albeit different sizes of wheels are found on other types of BMX racing bikes, they also have to be cool and conduct tricks like a Tabletop, X-Up, Turndown, 540, and others while offering the rider freedom to maneuver and make the bike do unbelievable things.
BMX bikes are constructed with rigid chrome-alloy or aluminum frames but newer carbon fiber composite frames are also in circulation nowadays in competitions like the X-Games and Summer Olympics. They come with basic mechanics such as a single cassette gear with smaller crankshafts and high-rise handlebars.
BMX BRAND AND NAMES
While there are many different names for BMX bikes such as Diamondback, Haro, and Redline, one of the most famous of all time is known as Mongoose which is a trademark product of BMX Products, Inc. The manufacturer is a human being called Skip Hess. In 1974, he made a MotoMag cast-magnesium wheel in his workshop at home to make the BMX bike more durable and Alleyooped in 1975 to superstardom, and by the star year 1976, it was an interstellar best seller.
For younger humans known as kids, if you wanted to be cool, you had to have a Mongoose. Mongoose BMX bikes ruled the bricks, steel-tube handrails, and concrete walls in most towns and cities in the world and became a world-class BMX racing team and the best BMX designs on earth.
