  • Are GT Aggressor Bikes Good?

    GT Aggressor bikes are generally considered to be entry-level mountain bikes that offer decent performance and durability for their price range. They are popular among riders who are new to mountain biking or those on a limited budget.

    The GT Aggressor series features a variety of models with different specifications, ranging from basic components to more advanced ones. While they may not have the same level of high-end features and technologies as some more expensive bikes, they can still provide a reliable and enjoyable riding experience.

    The Aggressor bikes typically have a sturdy aluminium frame, which is lightweight and durable. They often come equipped with front suspension forks to handle rough terrain and absorb shocks. The drivetrain and braking systems may vary depending on the specific model, but they usually offer a good balance of performance and affordability.

    Keep in mind that the overall quality and performance of a bike can vary based on the specific model and year. It's always a good idea to test ride a bike and compare it to other options in a similar price range to determine if it suits your needs and preferences.

    If you're a beginner or on a tight budget, a GT Aggressor bike can be a reasonable choice to get started with mountain biking. However, if you're an experienced rider or have more specific requirements, you might want to explore higher-end models or other brands that offer more advanced features and components.

  • What is the history of BMX bike riding?

    BMX bike riding emerged in the late 1960s and got incredibly popular in the 1970s. The term BMX stands for bicycle motocross, and the idea of BMX bikes were to emulate motocross riders at the time with a piece of kit that young riders can push. Motocross was a popular extreme sport at that time so it is no wonder young kids wanted to emulate this sport with their own bike, or BMX. BMX bikes were initially adapted from traditional bicycles, but changed to allow for more agility and ruggedness. It is for this reason that BMXs tend to be smaller and much lighter weight than mountain bikes, for example. 

  • How can I ride my GT bike safely?

    If you are just getting to grips with bmx riding and are especially keen to ensure your safety, first of all, make sure you are wearing a helmet, along with elbow pads and knee pads at the very least. You will need to keep your dome and your joints protected in case of collision or accidents. Ensuring that you are visible is important too, especially at night. You can do this by wearing bright coloured or reflective clothing; i.e. anything that will cause you to stand out in the dark. Obey the traffic laws and stick to paths if necessary and also be sure to cycle predictably and safely to prevent motorists or other riders or pedestrians colliding with you.
