Freestyle BMX is another name for BMX stunt riding, and comes from extreme sports. There are various disciplines in Freestyle BMX: flatland (skatepark), dirt, trails, vert, park and street.

Most BMX freestyle bikes will have 51 cm or 20 inch wheels. Frame geometry and sizes will vary, but the bike's top tubes are normally between 51 up to 56 cm or 20 up to 22 inches long.

A beginner rider often tends to purchase a store bought complete bike and then customizes it with various aftermarket parts. Parts tend to break such as cranks, pedals and forks. However, a more experienced rider will usually build a custom bike from scratch to suit their style and preferences.

Generally, a street rider will use the slicker tire to get more grip on the concrete, and could make use of up to 4 axle pegs for the grinding. A rider usually has a side that he or she prefers for grinding and might only run two pegs on the one side.

By adding an extra two pegs to their non preferred side it can make for a lot more trick variations, though. For easier tail whips a street rider also tends to ride the big bars. Smaller gearing will usually be preferred as well.

A street rider tends to run his bike brakeless. This is because they feel that the barspins are a lot smoother and that they can control the bike more easily.

Park BMX freestyle bikes are quite similar to the street bike. However, a park rider might prefer to use their brakes (both or rear) for more control and increased diversity of tricks.

A park bike might differ from a street bike in that it will not be as resilient on the heavy-duty high strength parts. Park riding will not be as stressful on a bike.

A dirt rider will normally not have any pegs unless he or she wants to perform peg specific non grind tricks like rocket airs.

They will also use the knobby tire in loose dirt for a better grip. A dirt bike also tends to run rear brakes only and has longer wheelbases and top tubes.

A lot of riders will use the bigger bars to gain more control. Big bars are becoming a trend amongst professional riders and kids.

A dirt bike will generally have at least chromoly down its top/forks and seat tubes so as to increase its durability and also prevent parts bending (especially the forks) while landing a large jump.

A professional competing in a park contest will usually sport a gyro with only rear brakes, zero to four pegs, and lightweight bike. Vert BMX freestyle bikes are relatively heavy for control and stability, and sport four pegs.

A flatland bike usually runs four oversized pegs and a smaller and lighter frame. It often has pre bent tubes for easier flatland tricks. They will usually have both rear and front brakes because a lot of tricks requires them to aid in the weight distribution or to perform certain tricks.

The top tubes on these BMX freestyle bikes will also be shorter (about 43 to 48 cm or 17 to 19 inches). These bikes normally sport small sprockets with twenty to twenty five teeth as well as low gearing.

This makes it a lot easier with pedalling out of any trick, as there will be no need in riding fast.
