True BMX bikes started it all, back in the late sixties. They were knockoffs of motocross motorcycles designed for racing over jumps and around berms in the dirt. Pretty soon kids everywhere had them, racers or not.
Avalanche BMX bikes are still designed for racing, although you don’t have to race to enjoy riding BMX. They have 20-inch wheels, 2-piece handlebars, small seats, long cranks and strong rear hand brakes. The chromoly steel frames are light, sturdy and economical.
