Name: Caiden Cernius
BMX Groms Member Page: bmxgroms.com/members/caidenbmx/
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 🙂
Grips: Cult vans
Seat: We the people
Cranks: Solid bikes 95mm.
Sprocket / Number of Teeth: 9T TI rear driver, 25T aluminum sprocket
Chain: Shadow Copper
Tires: Schwable big apples
Rims: Huffy, yes you heard right, straight outa K Mart! $5 rims laced up to $500 hubs:) this was one of the harder parts of the build. There’s just nothing out there in 14” I think there like 26 spoke so we always carry a few spokes. It’s a 36 hole hub and he’s blown out plenty of them.
Front Hub: Profile Elite Kaleidoscope
Rear Hub: Profile Elite Kaleidoscope with TI hardware. Right hand drive 14mm
Pegs: Misc aluminum
Pedals: We the people plastic
Brakes: Oddessy evo
2018 goals: compete as much as possible and land a sponsor wink wink Volcom/DC 🙂 Continue to improve and keep making new friends!
