Max Vu – Cult Juvenile 18″ BMX Bike Check

Max Vu Cult Juvi 18 Inch BMX Bike Check
Name: Max Vu

Age: 12

Height: 57″

Weight: 85lbs

Riding style (park/street/trails etc.): BMX, pretty much everything even some flatland!! I think it is dumb to label yourself as one type of style & miss out on the other riding options. It’s fun to mix it up! Dennis McCoy is a good example, he can ride everything. I was told Dennis has won every category in bmx!

How old were you when you started riding? 4

Which size BMX did you start on? 12″ DK General Lee (aluminum) Jesse Klein from DK hooked it up and started it all. Then Quamen made me a 12″ chromoly frame with a longer top tube. A year later, Robbo made me a 12″ Cult Juvenile complete.

Max Vu - Should you get your kid a bike to grow into?

Do you have any advice for kids choosing a bike to start BMX? Having the right size bike is what helped me most to get where I am at today. Helping my dad at Epic, I hear so many parents say, “I want to get a bike my kid can grow into and make it last.” That’s crazy! Imagine a kid playing baseball with an adult bats & gloves? I guess they will grow into them…

If you were back starting out again at the same age would you do anything differently? No. Everything is good!

Max Vu BMX Bike Check ForksFrame / Top Tube Length: Cult Juvenile 18″ aluminum

Why did you choose that frame? It is light weight because it’s made of aluminum. People tell me to ride a chromoly frame because it’s stronger & won’t break as often. I don’t understand why these people feel aluminum is bad or weak? Have you seen what Dylan Stark does on his mountain bike? It’s nuts!!! His mountain bike frame & 1pc handlebar is aluminum. My bmx race bike is aluminum & so are most racers bikes. I see adults bend & break chromloy frames all the time. I guess they should ride an adamantium frame. haha. I’m 12 years old & 85lbs, let me enjoy what I got!

Fork: 18″ Primo Strand with a 15mm offset. Makes the bike feel shorter and nose wheelie easier.

Bars / Size: S&M TV 7.75 rise

Stem: Cult Salvation 45mm (prototype)

Grips: Cult Vans

Bar ends: Odyssey Par End

Seatpost: Cult Tripod

Seat: Cult Butter Tripod

Cranks (and crank arm length): Primo Powerbite 135mm

Sprocket (and number of teeth): Primo JJ 25t

Chain: Shadow halflink

Front Tire: Fit FAF 18×2.1

Front Wheel: Primo N4FL laced to no name rim. (I think the rims came off of a stock complete bike that the customer wanted custom built wheels.)

Rear Tire: Fit FAF 18×2.1

Rear Wheel: Primo Free Mix 8 tooth driver, laced to no name rim.

Pedals: Merrit P1

Hub Guard: Primo

Pegs: Primo plastic

Brakes: none

Any special mods? Frame rear tri has been shorten 2″ from stock for better bunny hop snap, Forks were shorten from 20″ to 18″. Cranks cut down and tapped to 135mm. Modifications were done by @lukeshutts at Shutts Fabrications in Long Beach, Ca.
