Have you been looking around to find a BMX bike and wondered what all the fuss is about these smaller 10” BMX bikes that you’ve seen flying around the skatepark or BMX track? Well, in this post, we are going to unpack what it means for you to shred harder on the mini BMX craze that is taking over neighborhoods near you.
How did Mini BMX start? By now you've probably seen them flying around your local skatepark or BMX track - Wildcat, Fatboy, Rocker, just some of the brands in existence today... so just where did these crazy little bikes come from? We thought it was time to dive a little deeper and pay homage to the real pioneers of Mini BMX, as well as shine a spotlight on Wildcat’s foundation as a true OG in the Mini BMX movement.
Wildcat Mini BMX has a growing following of fans and riders around the world. We took some time to ask Marshall "Major" Gherke some questions so we could get to know him more, and to understand why he loves shredding on a Wildcat Mini BMX.
This is our 2nd mini bmx from Wildcat! This bike has a beautiful paint job. Love having a rear break! The pro wheels are super awesome. We’re mostly in our late 30s over here at Fat Bike Asinine and these little bikes are stupid fun. Bike is very durable and can definitely takes some abuse. You can’t begin to remove your smile while riding or watch others ride. If you’ve got youngsters, this is a stellar bye as they’ll never grow out of it and probably not destroy it. Thick dropouts. Bike would survive falling off cliff and still be fine!
Ian, thank you once again for ordering your second Wildcat. You are developing your own little collection there. So pleased you have upgraded to a bike with the Turbo Wheel and disc brakes - we know you'll see a huge difference over the Original 1s. Keep shredding - can't wait to see your videos.
