what trick bike?


Recommended Posts

So I am keen to get a trick bike. I live close to a skatepark with verts that I have messed around on with a mountain bike when its empty and I really enjoy it.


Most of my experience is limited to a skateboard on verts. I can do moderate tricks comfortably on the verts (tail stall, 50-50 etc), if that matters.


What bike should be my first?


Where can I get one in Durban?


I'm 80kg, 1.8m tall if that helps.

Im pretty sure most if not all guys riding bikes on vert are on a bmx.

Not sure what the status of bmx in SA is but Im sure its not the easiest bike to come by.

Hey man, second hand bmx bikes are quite easy to come by on gumtree etc, I’d say between 2-5k, there is quite a big bmx culture at Durban beach skatepark, a lot of guys riding Fit bikes, you can also try bmx direct.net for all your parts and complete bikes, local company I think

There are plenty of BMXs around Durban. Cash convertors always have a couple. I've had a couple before for the beachfront, tempted to get another.

I saw a Specialized BMX for sale on bike hub from BikeMarket. There is even a heading 'BMX' in the classifieds too.


I would get a trials bike or urban DJ bike. There is an awesome looking seated trials bike in the 'dirt jump' section of the MTB classifieds but it's a bit out of my price range.


Good luck!
