BMX Bikes FAQs
What is a BMX bike?
A BMX bike is an all terrain bicycle that was created in the 1970s by
youths modifying their dragster bicycles to emulate motocross riders so
they too could jump and make aggressive turns. This is why BMX stands for Bicycle Moto Cross (X). Over
the years, the material and geometry has been refined, to make a strong
BMX bike that could withstand more punishment and perform
better. As BMX evolved, so did the bikes, with the modern BMX bike being
even more light weight while still remaining very strong. Now you can
get a cheap BMX bike without having to replace parts straight away.
There are many different styles of BMX bikes to suit all types of BMX
disciplines. Whether you are looking to buy a BMX bike to ride
freestyle at the skatepark, street or the trails, we recommend any of
the awesome BMX bikes for sale at Back Bone BMX but are certainly happy
to speak to you over the phone or via e-mail with any questions you might have.

What size BMX bike do I need?

Are BMX bikes good for beginners?
BMX bikes are single geared, with robust components and durable, wide tires, which means they are much easier to control for a beginner rider.
Sending BMX bikes Australia wide

If you're brand new to riding or someone who has years of experience, Back Bone BMX is excited to help find the perfect bike for you.
This is a great frame for flatland and has similar geometry to the new Haro Ground Master frames (this Squib will probably not see a set of trails). After throwing on a set of S&M Fast Pitch forks and drilling/tapping for a gyro set up, the Squib was ready to hit the flatland spot to roll hitchhikers, scuff and turbine. The colour scheme and decals look great and has high quality workmanship as expected being a frame made by S&M. The guys at Backbone were extremely helpful in getting the frame to me.
The guys at Back Bone were super friendly and helpful with another alternative when they didn't have in stock what i was originally after. They rang me to sort it out and this was a refreshing change to get some real human interaction.
Thank you for everything, we are very happy with the bike and your service!!
I ordered my Skyway TA Replica from Back Bone and after being told it was being packed up, I'm assuming it was a floor model, it showed up, scratched up. In addition to the known damages, the seat and post were improperly packed, which lead to sections of the frame that were scratched down to the bare metal. Below is the list of damages that I found:
- Seat post = scratched and scuffed up and also has paint runs on it.
- Seat stays = gouges from the bolt on the seat from when it was packed and some other scratches under the brake
- Fork = small knicks on the front, back and side
- Red Cable = the housing is torn
- Top Tube = marked up from the cable and scuffed up from the zip ties that were used to hold the brake cable
- Bars = small knicks and scratched up by the brake lever
Are some of these scratches small, yes, however when you put all of them together, it's pretty upsetting.
My recommendation, do not buy a bike from out of the country. It makes correcting the situation that much more difficult.
I have attached some photos, but doubt this will make it to the company website.........
Awesome bike rides smooth looks great and quick shipping
This is exactly what we were looking for, providing protection without restricting mobility. And he likes how it looks so, that's a plus
Back Bone went above and beyond with ensuring I had the correct cable delivered for my sons Kink Bmx. Rhys was helpful in all ways.
The cable was really easy for me (mum bmx novice) to install.
Definitely recommend BackBone
The chain is the best 👌 delivered in great shape, and got free stickers. Top that off the guys were always in contact with me for updates.
Comfortable and good quality also super light compared to other helmets.
Delivery was a while but was understandable and they sent me a nice post card which made me happy 👍
Got my old school redline sprocket that no one else had super fast, super friendly and personalized note. A lot of places should have this level of customer service. THANK YOU BACKBONEBMX!
Thank you Backbone! Shipping was great and the bars arrived undamaged. I now have V bars on my PL - 26! Thanks again!
Just let them know if you have any concerns about the delivery; they protect your purchase well.
