Where to Buy Pretty in Pink BMX Bike

This no-brand Walmart model features a stylish design that somehow manages to attract 'tween girls whose tastes veer towards the feminine and others who favor tomboy mode. Pretty in Pink BMX reviews on Walmart comment on the vibrant pink frame and describe it as "cute" and "adorable" but also deem it sturdy and tough with a BMX-like profile that radiates cool. Few girls seem to use this 20-inch model for anything but riding (i.e., no stunts), and most reviews indicate they do so with ease. One parent says her daughter likes the stability of the seat, which seems longer and narrower than others, and another writes that her 4-year-old mastered the mechanics of riding this 20-inch two-wheeler in about a week. While many bike reviews laud the quality, others share some grievances, such as wheels that aren't true, brakes that aren't centered, a crank that makes noise, and a chain that hits the guard. A few report the bike arrived for DIY assembly with damaged or missing parts, but many say it goes together quickly.

The Pretty in Pink BMX (starting at $70) features both coaster (pedal) brakes and front and rear caliper hand brakes. There's a lever to adjust the seat and the frame is made of a metal alloy; spokes on the wheels are steel. It comes with a kickstand, rear foot pegs, and a spot for affixing universal training wheels, if needed.

Strong support for this bike in Pretty in Pink BMX reviews suggests it will hit the spot with young girls who are both active and fashion-aware. The budget price only enhances its appeal with the grown-ups.
