Here’s a sizing guide for all the Colony complete bikes to help you work out the best suited bike for your size and age.
When looking at buying a new bike it’s good to understand the differences between each model. So we’ve created a table guide to give you a good start on how to work out the best BMX bike for you.
HOW TO MEASURE A BMX STEM
When deciding what stem suits your riding, the main thing you look at is the reach and rise.
PARTS OF A BMX EXPLAINED
We’ve broken it down so you can easily understand which part is what when it comes to a BMX bike setup.
CHOOSING YOUR CRANKS LENGTH
Generally BMX cranks come in 3 different sizes… 165mm, 170mm and 175mm.
165mm: Shorter cranks can be good when you have a short rear end on your frames as it gives you slightly more clearance especially if you’re a tall rider. Generally street riders run shorter cranks to help with pop.
170mm: A good middle ground size for diversity and also the common size you’ll find on 20″ complete bikes for that very reason.
175mm: A lot of trail / bowl riders will run longer cranks to help with stability and also more room to move when doing table’s etc…
