Rocker BMX Jumps Industry Trend, Pushes Smaller Wheels Instead
The mini bike trend has been successful in the moto world, so maybe that’s where Rocker BMX is getting their motivation. While the mountain bike industry seems set on pushing bigger wheels and tires, Rocker is going the opposite direction with 10″ wheels with fat pneumatic tires. Built to actually function as a BMX bike, the Rockers feature full size saddles, bars, pedals, and 28/12 gearing for ease of use (?).

Rocker BMX bikes range from £99.00 to £149.00 (about $153-231) depending on the model. For that coin, you’re getting a hi tensile steel frame with a threadless fork and an actual top load stem. Wheels are a two piece steel design with a patented Rocker rear hub that uses a 12t freewheel that’s driven by a one piece crank.
Rocker Mini BMX bikes are available for pre-order and should be available later this month.
