A few weeks back I gave my son, Ryan, the choice of any Mini BMX Bike from the Skates.Co.Uk website. After a long hard look at them all he decided that he wanted the Venom 2017 Pro Mini BMX. He loved the colour and decided the snake logo on the seat was the deciding factor for him as it was just 'super cool' and he had to have it. (Bless).
Stunt Bikes and Stunt Scootering is becoming really popular right now. We often like to stop and watch the local kids at our skate park as they zoom up and down the ramps doing their magical tricks and stunts. It's something my boy has always wanted to have a go at himself.
Root Industries are getting particularly popular with riders at the moment.
With his new Venom 2017 Pro Mini BMX, he's now able to join in. He may not be able to do all the cool tricks that the pro's can do but he sure looks the part whilst he's learning and trying his best. He's been having great fun practising these past few weeks and really loves his new bike. I was a little unsure about the size of the bike and the whole practicality of how he'd be able to ride it but I really shouldn't have wasted any time worrying about it because he's doing just fine. The Mini BMX's are suitable for everyone: boys, girls, men and women.
The Venom 2017 Pro Mini BMX will cost you £129.99 from Skates.Co.Uk.
Ryan is no pro just yet but he's enjoying riding his BMX anyway. He's never had a BMX bike before so it's taking some getting used to but he's loving it. The great things about this bike is that it will last for years, he won't be outgrowing it any time soon. At the moment he's sitting down when riding but as he gets bigger he can learn to ride standing up too. There's so many stunts and tricks just waiting to be mastered and I just know that he's going to have so much fun learning them all but for now, he's just happy riding his super cool bike around.
