Got the bike in but it doesn’t pedal right... has a pop each time.

Hi Leigh, so sorry to hear you're having issues with the bike. We'd like to be able to resolve this for you - I haven't come across this issue before. Can you please send photos and a video through to sales@wildcatmini.com and we will take it from there.
So much fun!

I am a mom to a 6 year old boy who loves to race bmx, and I bought the mini for myself! I love to ride it and love the fact that my boy can ride it also!

That's the absolute best Noelle. So nice to see a parent telling us the real truth - normally we hear that they got it for their kid and they just happen to ride it!! haha. Own that thing!!

Original 1A Silver - One Piece Crank

Thanks for the 5 Kimberlee - really appreciate it. Enjoy the bike.
Five star

Easy to assemble my daughter loves it!

Thanks Tony, hope your daughter gets years and years of fun out of it.
Awesome bike

Bike is perfect except screws on brake mechanism are not tightened on delivery and you must tighten them when you assemble the bike or they will fall out. Bike is 100% awesome- solid, smooth, high end, not cheap Chinese junk.

Really appreciate your review Tim and so pleased you’re happy with the bike. Our team tries to go above and beyond to make the best Mini BMX on the market. shred hard bud.
Great bike

This has been super fun for my kids as well as husband! Great set up!

Katherine, your husband sounds like most of the dads who get a Wildcat for their kids - they secretly want to ride them as well . We look forward to him getting his own Wildcat (it fits the normal pattern with our Wildcat Pride ). So pleased you love your Wildcat Mini.
Wildcat bike!

Bike was easy to put together and my nephew loves it. I actually like to ride it myself and I’m 30 years old. Great job guys!

That's brilliant Joel - and love the photos. Ride it hard - the bikes really are for the dads!!
Christmas gift

Got the Wildcat BMX mini for my son on Christmas.
He loves the bike and keeps it in his room when he isn’t riding it. Very sold bike.

What an awesome addition to his room furniture David . So glad your son loves the bike - it’s what we always love hearing. Shred on
2A royal purple

I really like it so far. I'm 5'10 145lb and 34 years. I bought to ride with my son who is just learning to ride. so now I can have fun and trick while he is learning the basics. So I have the one piece crank and it feels good and strong. (Was a lil hesitant) I also got the break. And with some adjustment it stops me real nice. At 145lb wasn't sure how it would work. but it does good, very happy about that. Frame is beautiful and feels super sturdy. Only things I don't really like are the pedals (seem cheap)(sorry)and the seat could be more adjustable. I know you can buy em but at 370$ I assumed it would adjust and the pedals would be of decent quality. The box was ripped and a screw on the headset was bent and it is also pretty scratched. Just went to local bike shop and replaced the screw but the scratches are lame. Anyway I love it and it's super fun to ride around the house. I'm just a big kid

Thanks so much for your review Travis - they are the best to ride around with your young kids - before you know it he'll want his own. Sorry there was an issue with the bolt - glad you got it sorted. If you have a photo of the damage to the box, please send it through to us so we can follow up with FedEx. Enjoy riding it.

Wildcat review

I got 2 bikes so I’ll combine em. I got the Blue Pro and the chrome mini freak.

In my opinion the grips on the bikes are too wide. It does give you plenty room to grip however it forces the break handle clamp into the bar bend. So It doesn’t sit right and isn’t snug. I’d also like them to have a much longer seat post for a higher seat setting.

I also think the Pro should come with the pegs.. it just should. That being said, the bikes are awesome. They’re very good build quality and tough little bmx’ers. I’m an old dirt jumper/park rider and don’t feel like I have to take it easy on the bike at all. I’d break something before the bike does. Having fun learning to ride them.

I like the larger chro-mo bars on the freak a little better than the bars on the pro. Just a better fit for me. I do like the pro wheels, they seem a little tougher then the standard wheels, however the standard wheels are perfectly fine.

Overall cool bikes. At the skate park I had both kids and some parents ask me where I got them :-)

Ride on.

Huge thanks for your review and really helpful feedback Ren - that's appreciated. Really pleased that you love the build and quality of the bikes - but would prefer it if you don't break anything on yourself first ! Will pass your feedback in regards to the bars and grips onto the team - we are always looking for feedback so we can keep improving them.
Stellar

I bought my son a mini for Christmas! The customer service was wonderful in explaining what needed assembled and if I, a super not handy mom, could pull it off on Christmas Eve. haha! Which I was able to btw! They are very quick to respond to any emails and issues. My son has been on his bike as much as possible since Santa brought it. We get tons of questions and compliments about where we got it and how cool it looks. Good purchase, great customer service! Highly recommend!

Love it Jayne, and so pleased that you found it easy to get the few parts assembled. Hope it gives hours and hours of fun for your son. Shred hard and so glad you’re part of the Wildcat Pride.
Awesome

Very awesome

Thanks man, appreciate the 5 stars.
5 year old mini bmx

After switching out the handlebars for a much smaller pair, my daughter is loving this bike. She is able to take the big drops and hit most of the transitions at our local skate park. The bike works very well!

That's brilliant Chris - love the video. So good.
Awesome look and super ride.

This is a super cool bike. Even cooler looking on person. My sons been riding it non-stop since he got it for Christmas and he loves it!

That's the best Melody - really appreciate your feedback and so pleased your son is attached to it!! Shred on.
happy

my grandson took his x-mas money to buy this bike. I cant get him off of it. he loves it. he is only 6 . having a great time with it. great quality.

That's sensational to hear Tanya - what an awesome way to use his Christmas Money!!! So good.
Full Pro Model Review

As an older rider, a mechanical engineer by profession, and an owner of a competitors high end model as well, here are the reasons this bike is worth your money:
1) If you desire a brake, the wildcat disc is the only one that works. The side-pull caliper brakes on small bmx rims do not work. The science is wrong based on large width and small rim diameter passing through the brakes shoes.
2) The premium tires are superior in many ways. One, they are molded much more true (no high/low spots or wobble). Two, colors are more vibrant. Three, better grip due to tread style and rubber composition.
3) Rims look very nice, and work well at keeping ride smooth and safe with great bearings. Ask about changing the black nylon pieces for a splash of color like I did. For a little cash, it really sets the rim off against the black tire sidewall.
4) The oil slick frame is really well done and won't scratch like paint. I added the taller matching handlebars to make riding easier for my tall frame. Hint: A little air compressor pressure applied to the open end of grips makes them come on and off quite nicely. Don't balloon them up though! Short bursts only! :)

As an adult rider who understands that you get what you pay for, I'm happy to support these folks for putting out a quality product. They are super to deal with as well. Buy with confidence.

Also, for those interested. I like to put a long seat post in with a comfort seat for cruising around. I bought one from that large South American jungle site for 22 bucks. It's 25.4mm (1 inch) in diameter by 450mm long. I'm 210 pounds and 6 foot, and this works great. Brand is UPANBIKE. Then it pops out in minutes for kids to ride. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, the kids love this thing too! :)

This bike is so much fun to ride downtown. I get tons of great looks, and lots of questions. Enjoy my friends!

Jamie, thank you so much for such a comprehensive review on the Wildcat Pro Series. We really appreciate it - especially given your experience as a mechanical engineer. Can't wait to see what the bike looks like with the additional parts that are on the way.
Disappointed

I wasn’t sure I wanted to get one for my daughter.
I wanted to speak to someone in person about the bike before I bought it. I could not find any customer service phone contact, but I bought one anyway and my concerns were valid.

I have a 5 year old who races BMX and is an amazing little rider for her age. I got the mini bmx for her to help cross train and have fun at the skate park. Your website states kids as young as 3 can ride them. I had to switch out the handlebars for a much smaller pair which you don’t seem to offer at the time of purchase. There is no way a small child can ride safely with that set up. You need to verify what age group the bike is for and offer different handlebar heights and width. The weight is also disappointing for such little bike. My daughter already has a wal mart bike for the skate park and I feel like I just spent close to $400 for a bike with a disc brake. Yes I am disappointed!

Hi Chris Thanks for the time that you took to review your Wildcat Mini BMX purchase. We are sorry to hear that the bike hasn’t lived up to your expectations. We strive to make the worlds best Mini BMX and it’s disappointing to hear that it fell short of what you expected. We have generally found that for our bikes which have the small bars like yours, they are suitable for children from the age of 3 or 4, and it allows room for them to grow into the bike. However we also understand that not every child is the same and some will have different preferences. We’d like to get to the point where we are able to do more custom bikes and options, however as we are only a startup in the USA at this point, we haven’t been able to offer that service as yet. I’m also sorry that you weren’t able to get in touch with us before you purchased the bike, we do have a “contact us” link on the website, and respond to enquiries within 24hrs, usually quicker. If there’s anything we can assist with in the future, please let us know. We hope your daughter has hours and hours of fun riding her Wildcat
Wildcat mini

My 13 y.o. son loves his Wildcat mini. Says it is way better than his old FatBoy. It came well packaged and was easy to assemble.

That's so good - super pumped that he got an upgrade and can shred even harder now. Enjoy the ride.
Awesome!!

Awesome bike! The fact that I can ride this thing at 35 years old and have my kids ride it as well, makes the purchase extremely worth it! Especially when it was on sale for black friday! Need to get some pegs for it now and debating about changing the seat and or post because I am not found of it leaning back like it does.. it does not appear to be adjustable. But the fact we all can ride it and it fits inside my trunk for an easy transport, makes it all worth it! Fun to ride for sure and it's an eye catcher!

That's brilliant Matt. So good when Dad's get in on the action - I suspect you'll be like many of the dad's who have bought Wildcat's for their kids - and then end up getting their very own so they can shred side by side. Bring it on!! We do have some pivotal seats in our store - check them out.
Mini freestyle bike

Thanks for your review Ed - so good that your kids love it - I can't confirm if we add steroids to the build process or not!!
Cool bike

Always love hearing that you can't get your son off it Corey - so good. Thanks for such a positive review.
Baddest mini bike on the planet
