Online Cycling Store Your no 1 Customer Review Site is reviewing the Framed Forge BMX Bike – It’s a fact, people use bmx bikes for transportation. Why? because bmx bikes are rad and commuting is mo radder. We wanted to make a bike just for this person. A price point, rock solid A to B bmx bike, that you can afford to have stolen (sort of).
We gave it the looks of a legit high-end bmx bike with all the strength and eeze to handle ‘on the ground riding’. When you’re ready to take flight checkout our Team and Attack series!

One customer was not really happy with his purchase but for the price I do not think there is to much to complain about. Read what more happy customers had to say:
Nice bmx bike – We bought this bike for our 14 year old son who was interested in it for the cool colors and for him to be able to do some tricks. He loves it, it seems to be great for his purposes, I think it was money well spent. He rides it a lot, to several towns nearby and it still looks good, he has not had any problems with it. I would recommend it for teens, especially if they are particularly active doing hops and other stunts (a good intermediate bike for that). It is probably too low for average size or taller adults.
The Verdict follows suit with the Forge…a good looking bike at an amazing price. The main difference is the compact drive on the Verdict. This gives the bike a pro model look. The rear wheel is a 9t cassette 14mm hub. The 25t sprocket stays out of the way on all types of riding. Learning to drop in at your local skate park ramps? No worries! This sprocket is small enough to drop in on smaller ramps without any hang up. If you really want to get after park riding we recommend the Team or Attack series.
We challenged our team to put this bike through hell. Nowadays, people tend to nerd out on techy specs and ride less. We say you can have a team bike that’s not full chromo. We say you can have a simple inexpensive bike that can hold its own. We say the Team is that bike! But if you really want a chromo bike check out our Attack!
