The mini BMX community is tight knit but grows in size every year. The Wildcat Mini BMX family is dedicated to servicing and exploding the new phenomenon throughout the world. In order to do so Wildcat Mini BMX must continue building the team. And, that's why they are excited to announce an awesome new addition to the proud Wildcat Mini BMX community, Jeremiah Morris!
Jeremiah is an original Mini BMX'er. We were pumped when he reached out to our team asking to join the Wildcat Pride. Jeremiah, 28 years old, started riding Mini BMX bikes 10 years ago, after he had a bad accident on his full size BMX. He fell 17ft off a jump snapping his leg in multiple places. When he saw his doctor, he was told his BMX riding days were over – but that didn’t stop Jeremiah.
On a trip to Chandler AZ, he bought a 12” bike from Kmart and parts from eBay. He started playing around with it making his very own unique Mini BMX. Initially, he called it an XMB – (BMX backwards but also stands for Xtreme Mini Biking).
You can view one of his early videos here, shot back in early 2009.
We had the pleasure of interviewing Jeremiah. We asked what made him switch to Mini BMX bikes, "It was really just an alternative to riding a full size BMX, because I didn’t want to kill myself riding which was the fear after my accident."
Jeremiah went on to purchase his first professional Mini BMX bike, a Fatboy Mini BMX. Using his new bike, he learned to ride harder and faster. Recently he's been riding for Rocker Mini BMX, the most well known Mini BMX bike in the USA.
So why the change to Wildcat Mini BMX?
Jeremiah always watched Wildcat from afar, but due to Wildcat Bikes not being in the USA the opportunity to ride for us wasn’t there. So, when Wildcat Mini BMX launched in the USA, in June of 2019, he jumped at the opportunity to try the top of the range Wildcat Mini BMX Pro Series. The Royal Purple Pro Series bike was his first Wildcat purchase. "I wanted to ride for Wildcat because the bikes looked amazing and the geometry looked so much better. Given the longest top tube on the market, it’s easier to get space for my knees, and just so much easier to ride,” Jeremiah said.
His initial thoughts? "It’s like the most comfortable thing I’ve ever ridden," he said. "You can tell that there’s time invested in the build, and it’s not just mass produced and shoved out the door!"
"The geometry reminds me of one of the early bikes I built myself," Jeremiah says reminiscing on his early built Mini BMX.
The quality of our bikes are another testament why Jeremiah joined Wildcat BMX. "I was destroying the other Mini BMX’s I had and I thought there had to be a better option. The quality of Wildcat BMX is amazing – I’ve never seen better...If you want a bike that you have to keep fixing, go for something cheaper. But if you want something that will last, buy a Wildcat Mini BMX. It just makes more sense."
Wildcat Mini BMX is absolutely passionate about developing the sport by pushing the boundaries. It was only a few months ago that we launched the first Pro Turbo Wheel – a nylon and aluminum combined wheel that's lighter and stronger than any other Mini BMX wheel on the market. Gone are the days of riding a BMX Mini with cart wheels.
We will keep pushing the boundaries and jumping walls on the technological side of Wildcat BMX bikes. We want kids, teenagers, and adults alike to be able to rely on their Wildcats, enjoying the sensation of shredding on a mini bike.
The Pro Series, that Jeremy is now riding, comes complete with 6061 Aluminum 4 piece Cro-Moly bars, 25 tooth aluminum chain wheel and a strong 3 piece Cro-Moly crank that’s been tested successfully up to 265lbs. (recommended use up to 220lbs) It also includes CNC’d alloy forks with integrated head tube, fully adjustable pivot seat, sealed inner bearing head parts and a pro-link chain.
The Wildcat Pro Series comes in three colors: Oil Slick Royal Green, Oil Slick Royal Purple and Royal Blue.
Jeremiah isn’t the only rider in the US to love their Wildcat Mini. Patrick Hertel, another Mini BMX'er, now owns two Wildcat Pro Series said, “This is my second Wildcat Pro Series. After I got (my first) one my daughter had to have one. Once again amazing build quality. Now me and my daughter can rip up the streets and trails together!”
For riders who are less experienced we recommend the Wildcat Original 1 range of bikes which is our base model built for big airs, park jamming or flat ground tech-tricks.
If you plan on purchasing your first Wildcat Mini BMX, the Original 1 range offers you the perfect combination of great performance and safety at an affordable price.
The Original 2 range is built for more professional levelpark,street and jump riding. With an updated frame design and smaller bars for kids up to 4'5" tall.
The 2A features 2-piece Cro-Moly handle bars and a 1-piece crank. This has been tested successfully to handle upto 220lbs(recommended for those up to 175lbs).
The 2B is a step up from the 2A with 4 PC Cro-Moly bars and a 3-piece crank. This has been tested successfully to handle up to 265lbs. (recommend it for riders up to 220lbs)
The Original 2 range upwards also features the latest edition of ourtires that are much lighter with faster roll speed and comes with disc brakes as standard. In fact, Wildcat Mini BMX is the only Mini bikes that have disc brakes (available on the Original 2 and Pro Series).
So, what are you waiting for? Come join Jeremiah Morris as he shreds harder than ever before on the lightest and strongest BMX Mini, Wildcat Mini BMX.
Available in the USA. You won’t be disappointed.

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.
I ordered the wildcat disc brake for my son's Fatboy Pro mini bmx bike. Installation was super easy. I am no bike mechanic by any stretch of the imagination, and it only took me about 20 minutes to install. The trickiest parts of the installation were adjusting the disc so it sat evenly between the brakes, and adjusting the brake cable. Other than those minor adjustments, it's pretty straightforward to install with Wildcat's installation instructions on their website.
The brakes are so much better than the stock caliper brakes on the mini bike! My kid loves his "upgraded" bike, and I love that the brakes work great and don't rub on the rear tire like the old caliper brakes. Thank you for this awesome product!
That's the best - so glad the brakes are working out well on your Fatboy Mini BMX and that you found it easy to instal them. Enjoy the upgraded ride.
