United Recruit 16-Inch 2018 BMX Bike
Every BMXer has to start somewhere. A lot of pros started out when they were really young, normally on a junk bike that was way too big for them. However! Technology has advanced and materials have improved over the years so your young lad or lass can have a flying start into the freestyle world with a great quality 16-inch setup.
The Recruit Jr. 16" offers a modern scaled down geometry so youngsters with short arms and legs can grasp basic tricks and maneuvers easily, and the transition to a bigger bike in future won't be a problem. It has standard 25-9 gearing, wide grippy tyres, comfy grips and seat, and is all built around a durable hi-tensile steel frameset. The axles will also accept 10mm pegs if they want to get brave and try some grinds.
