BMX Sizing and Transitioning to the Next Size Bike


Part of a special BMX Groms project documenting changing from an 18″ BMX to a 20″ BMX. Tips on BMX sizing and moving from one size BMX to the next as you grow. Check out the BMX sizing guide. Huge thanks to Nahum Billington and Sunday Bikes for helping with this project.

BMX Groms Official BMX Bike Sizing Guide


What size BMX Bike should I ride?

We’ve tracked some of the raddest BMX Groms in the world, as they’ve progressed, grown and moved from one bike size to another. These are the bike sizes that these shredders are most comfortable riding and if you want to progress like they are, have fun and stay safer – take a serious look at this BMX bike sizing guide.

Thanks to the many kids and parents, who have provided the input to help make this guide possible. One of the number one reasons – maybe the number one reason – for younger riders getting discouraged and quitting BMX, is being bought a bike for them to “grow into”. Get a bike the right size – not one to grow into!

Tips on transitioning from one size to the next.

Which size BMX did you start riding on: I started riding on a 16 inch BMX bike that my dad got for me when I was 8 and rode it till I snapped it in half. Then when I was 10 I bought a 20 inch BMX bike and have stayed on a 20 inch.
Do you have any advice for kids choosing a bike to start BMX? I definitely made the mistake of buying a bike that was too big for me so the best advice I could give would be to buy a bike that is the right size for you. It doesn’t have be a custom bike with expensive gear on it just something simple that you can learn on and progress on.
When do you think you will move up to a 20″ BMX? I have been riding a 20 inch for about 2 or 3 years now and I feel like it gives me a lot of room to move around on. I have never ridden an 18 inch because 20 inch bikes have always seemed more appealing to me with bigger wheels so I can get more speed for bigger tricks.
Favourite type of riding? (eg. park, street, trails, etc) I love to ride all types of style but I defiantly love to ride the GC compound which is a park setup. I do like to ride trails every now and then but there are not too many around where I live and street is fun and challenging for me which I like.

Any other special details or stories about your bike or parts? one little modification my Dad did for me was make a rubber washer out of a piece of the GC compound resi that goes between bottom bracket bearings and the bb spacer which stops the cranks from spinning which is really helpful in flip whips. Overall I love the way my bike is and every time I go to the skate park I look forward to riding it.
