BMX stands for Bicycle Motocross, and BMX bikes are bicycles designed for stunts as well as off-road racing.
There are different models of BMX bikes available; these models are named after the kind of terrain they are suitable for. Examples include Park, which is modified structurally to reduce unnecessary weight because of the smooth transitions consistent with park riding. We also have Flatland, whose features are geometrically different from the Park BMX bike because flatland riding needs precision when it comes to balancingon different areas of the bike. The Dirt bike has similar features as the park style BMX bikes except that its tires have a thicker tread so as to allow a better grip on loose surfaces. Street is another example of a BMX bike model. It has metal pegs on the axles that help the rider grind on rails. This bike comes heavier and stronger because of the extra force faced on hard, flat surfaces of the streets.
BMX bike riding has gradually gained popularity as a recreational sport, and you are likely to see people pulling stunts in the streets of the UK or cutting throughtrees in the woods while racing. If your income is tight, getting one for yourself or a loved one may seem a liked a far-fetched dream. This is because a good BMX bike is costly. The good news is that you can get a bike through different special payments. Financing is one of the most preferred means of payment.
Why do customers prefer financing as a means of purchase?
It is flexible
You get to choose how to pay and for how long you will pay. Some retailers may offer a financial program of up to 2 years. In those two years, you get to pay as little as possible on fixed monthly or even weekly instalments, depending on your current financial position and capability.
Credit history is not an issue
If you have a poor credit history or do not have a credit history at all, you need not worry as this will not affect your chances of getting financed in any way. However, some retailers offer lower interest rates to customers with good credit compared to those with a poor credit record or with not-so-appealing credit scores.
After the one-time advance payment on the bike and a documentation fee, you are allowed take your bike home on lease or on as rent-as-you-pay.
If you are a sportsperson or want to take up a biking as a form of recreation, do not be held back by your current financial hurdles. Talk to your retailer and come up with a plan to get you that BMX bike through finance.
