WHAT IS STREET RIDING?
Street Riding can be viewed as the most accessible and convenient way to Freestyle Riding (Ed: Old term used as per what the public understands). What exactly is Street Riding then? Street riding uses urban and public spaces to perform tricks. These tricks can be performed on curbs, handrails, stairs, ledges, banks, and others. It is a riding discipline that focus on technical skills of the rider. Styles among street riders vary as riders often depend upon their own differing urban surroundings. Street BMX rose to prominence as an increasingly defined discipline since the late 1980s. Currently, the popular bikes for street rides range from 20', 24' and 26' wheeled hard-tail bikes. 20' being BMX bikes.
Other freestyle riding styles include (1) Park riding – which rides within skate parks and (2) Dirt riding – which rides in dirt tracks or parks. While 24' and 26' street, park or dirt bikes are still relatively easily accessible, only a few shops in Singapore sells 20" BMX bikes that are dedicated to street, park or dirt riding.
