BMX bikes are measured in two ways: the size of the wheel (20” is the standard BMX wheel size), and the length of the frame which is gauged by the top tube measurement. We have also simplified for you into XS, Small, Medium, etc.

Here is a guide to what size you should be looking for - note that there is some overlap in sizes, as personal preference also comes into the equation!
Rider Height (in) Rider Height (cm ) Wheel Size (in)  Top Tube Length (in)

    Nice smaller beginner BMX bike for kids!

    Appears to be a quality built bike for the smaller youth riders. Bought for my 7 year old to rip around town and at the skate park. So far no complaints, appears to be a solid bike for the price.

    Time will tell if it holds up to the wear n tear of daily use.

    Would buy again if I needed to!

    Good price but

    Ordered the 16" stay strong for my sons bday and the frame was slightly scuffed/scratched in a few areas and the rims extremely dirty and dusty. Tires not in clean condition. Over all okay experience.
