BMX Bike Check with 6 Year Old Caiden Cernius

At six years old Caiden Cernius is making waves. Not only does he kill it on a BMX, he will be on an upcoming episode of “Little Big Shots” with Steve Harvey on NBC – with this bike.


Name: Caiden Cernius

Instagram: @caidenbmx

BMX Groms Member Page: bmxgroms.com/members/caidenbmx/

Quarter Pipe air 6 Year Old BMXer Caiden CerniusAge: 6

Height: 44″ and 44 LBS

Favourite place to ride? Woodward west dirt section and our backyard ramps!

Which trick do you want to learn next? Working on so many tricks right now but the big goal is to land a tail whip before turning 7 (sooo close)

How much time do you spend on your bike in a week? We try to ride for an hour or so after school about 3 days a week and about 5 hours a day Saturday and Sunday.

Best thing about BMX? Traveling, meeting friends and the possibility of seeing the world!

Best BMX moment from 2017? Bringing home 3rd place at the hotwheels jr open and getting the call from NBC to be on little big shots with Steve Harvey

Frame / Size: 14″ Laird custom

Why did you choose that frame? The jump from a 12″ to a 16″ is huge. Caiden’s pretty small for his age and the 16 killed everything he had worked on to date with his 12”. It was a very big investment but we figured it would be a good year or more until he properly fit a 16

Forks: Colony custom cut down to size

Bars / Size: S&M cruiser bars 6.5 rise (still looking for a better fit) but their getting the job done. Already cut about 8″ off 🙂

I still wasn’t ready for a 20″ and the 18″ was getting a bit tight so we felt it would make sense to make an 18″ xl frame. We chose the Chase Hawk frame because he is one of my inspirations! Also because his frame is very identifiable with the unique seatstay curve. I love how cool the old school bmx frames look. So much style and character. I like the craziness!

This new frame features a shorter rear. All of my previous frames had a super short rear, but at 11.25″, this is the shortest so far. With the shortened backend, the extended 19″ front didn’t feel longer, but gave more space for barspins and leg movements. We feel that this is the most advanced 18″ out right now. It’s about time the little guys get good parts!

The forks are also new. It’s the first high quality 18″ fork. The investment cast dropouts are so cool looking and strong. Because of the longer front-end, we set up this bike with a taller handlebar (.5″ taller than the older bar) and .5″ taller stacked headset. This will give the bike more leverage with manualing and hops.

The wheels are pretty much the same as all my previous bikes, but now with fat Dehart tires. These wider tires will help with tire riding rails and gives more cushion if I land hard.

The cranks are from the old bike. Primo Powerbites have never failed! I have never stripped a single set. That’s only 4 sets we have used since my 12″, 14″ and 16″.

Overall, the new setup feels very responsive and light! At 21 lbs it’s 1.5 lbs lighter than my previous red watermelon Cult OS 18″ bike. Robo and Neal are working on 135mm Cult cranks and 8″ Cult bars. On the wish list is a fork with a steeper offset to help with nose wheelies. Thank you Robo and Neal at Cult for always being supportive and listening to my needs! The future is bright for the groms!
