Bmx Bikes And Gear For Kids

Postby JudeE on Wed 11/Sep/13 4:45pm

Hi I have a 4 year old and 6 year old who want to get into BMX... Does anyone have old bikes and gear that they may want to sell??
Probably need a micro mini and a mini bike for starters...

Cheers

Have you asked around your local BMX club?, odds on someone will have bikes that their riders have grown out of

+1 for local Club; If you turn up and ask one of the riders or parents they will usually be able to point you in the direction of someone with gear for sale. This is a good way to avoid the feeding frenzy of TradeMe and the wee ones can have a try on for size.
We got new full face helmets from local dirtbike shop $95 each approx.
Don't know where you are, but this is our local Club

Almost every bmx club in the country actively promote via facebook, best medium available in terms of updating whats on (or not) at short notice, particularly because of weather. Many have people advertising bikes for sale, or will have various club members point people in the right direction whenever a question is asked about bikes for sale.
Get involved.

Where in NZ are you?

My kids both race .... we picked up their bikes 2nd hand. 1 through here, and the other through the club.

We bought full face helmets from trademe. Kids ones were brand new and I got a 2nd hand one for me .. think they were $50 or so each.

Gloves I think we got from torpedo7 ..
