One thing that you'll notice about our "Riders and their Rides" feature is that so many of the great mountain bike names got their start in BMX. We are talking about legends like Johnny T, Tinker Juarez, Brian Lopes, Eric Carter, Leigh Donovan, Jill Kintner, Todd Wells and Aaron Gwin. That's because BMX bikes teach you skills that translate to mountain biking (like jumping, pumping and riding berms).
If you want to up your game, maybe your next bike should be one with 20-inch wheels. You can find out about all things BMX from our sister publication, BMX Plus!
