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!

Name: Jensen Anders AKA (JENZ)
Age: 6 1/2
Height: 46 inches.
Weight: Still not much, maybe a scale shattering 45 lbs
Home Town: Holly Springs Nc
Favorite Time Riding this past Summer? Preforming with Daneil Dhers Gold Medal Bmx Shows, Sk8 Cary Jam where I came in 3rd, and just cruising the streets at the beach.
Next BMX Goal? The next big goal is to land a 360 and hopefully compete in more of the USA BMX Freestyle competition.
Most kids go from a 12″ to a 16″ BMX and 14″ BMX bikes are difficult to get. What made you decide to get a 14″? Basically when we bought 12” Cult Juvenile we got the 14″ Blank Digit at the same time for his sister. Knowing his size and weight wasn’t going to change very fast it just made sense. Right now the 16” is still way too big for him.
The Bike is fairly new, but do you think getting the 14″ was worth it? Being he’s a smaller 6 year old I feel it was completely the right thing to do. The 14″ helps keep him in the right riding position. In retrospect I wouldn’t change the decision we made. The 14″ Blank has helped keep him on a steady path of progression.
