Description: Framed Impact 18 BMX Bike - Kids, Youth

Finally! An 18in BMX bike that doesn't break the bank! Strategically designed for the future little ripper that just isn't quite big enough to fit on an adult bike, the Framed Impact 18 is a perfect beginner-level BMX bike for someone who is 4'2" to 5'0". Graduating from a 16in kids' bike to an adult 20in bike is a big jump, so the Framed team decided that there had to be an in-between; thus, the Framed Impact 18 was born. The fully hi-tensile steel frame, bars, fork, and other components are extremely durable and will last for many years to come!

Good for a kids 1st bmx freestyle bike
For $100 you really can't go wrong. Having said that, we did have to buy 8" tall bars as the stock were only 6" and caused our son to hunch over when peddling standing up. The bottom bracket is not sealed, so dirt riding and washing can cause the crank to get sticky when dirt & water gets into the bearings - oh, and the crank is one piece so not sure that a conversion to a mid sealed is an option.

Great bike for a great price! Changed brake pads to some better ones with a softer compound and may upgrade to a 3pc crank at some point. But my son loves it and it is holding up well!

Cool Little bike. But the brake won't stop it!
Got this bike for my 7 year old. The brake handle is plastic and the u brake that comes on it doesn't work very good at all. Took the bike to a shop to try and have the brakes adjusted and regardless of adjustment the brakes will not stop the bike. The $100 price is great but I suggest putting a good brake on it and charging $150.

Wanted a freestyle bmx bike with rear hand brakes. The FRAMED 16" bike now has coaster brakes, so went with the 18". Chose FRAMED because of the price. We had a 16" model that was going to cost more to repair than to replace.

is this a good beginner bike?
A shopper on Sep 17, 2016
The Impact 18 is a great beginner bike for kids.. say... under 5' tall.
Can this bike to the basics like bunny hoping, jumping?
A shopper on Oct 30, 2016
It can do some basic bunny hops... and low jumps. It is not designed as a park bike or for use on aggressive jumps however.
I have a daughter that wants a BMW bike and she is 15 and I don't know what size bike to get can you help me out?
Skyprimero12 on Oct 23, 2016
To be sure you will want to go by her height to determine the correct bike size. Most people her age will want a standard 20" bike as Merrit suggested. I am going to assume you meant BMX bike and not BMW bike, but the next question is what does she intend to do with it? That will determine how serious of a bike she needs. Get me a little info and i can help!!
im 5,3 but im kinda small, should i get the 18'' one or the 20''?
A shopper on Oct 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Get the 20" standard BMX bike for sure. The 18" would be tiny.
Is this size suitable for a smallish 6 year old? He's great on his bike and loves to do jumps...
Lara G on Oct 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, My son is a little guy at 7 and 48" tall. He also love to do jumps and that is why we bought this and not a bike with a coaster brake.
Im just 5 feet tall, should i get the 18" or 20"?
K1lla on Oct 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Anthony,
In your case a standard 20" BMX bike will be the best option.... especially if you are continuing to grow.
is a 4"8 to big for this?
anthony l on Sep 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Anthony,
4'8" will work with an 18" bike. Around 5' and the rider will want a standard 20" BMX bike.
Can the one pc crank be replaced with a two or three pic crank ?
A shopper on May 27, 2017
The Impact can be converted to a 2pc/3pc but would need to have the bearings upgraded to a Mid bottom bracket conversion kit.
Sold out. Will you all be restocking the 18” impact bmx bike?
Christopher C on Aug 3, 2018

Yes, we are getting three more colors in. They are expected to arrive in about 2 weeks! I would recommend checking back in a couple of weeks.

My son is 7, 52" tall, inseam is 23". Is the Framed impact 18 too small for him?
A shopper on Apr 17, 2018
52" tall is right about 4' 3"... an 18 inch BMX bike will not be too small for him. He can ride it comfortably to about 4'11 before wanting a larger bike.
Is it possible to raise the handle bars?
Bradley B on Apr 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Bradley,
It is not possible to raise the handlebar on a stock Framed Impact 18.
I’m 4’ 10. Is this bike big enough?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2018
For someone 4' 10" an 18" bike is perfect. If you are 5' + then the standard 20" bike will be a better option.
Can the 18 inch bike get upgraded hand brake and is there a smaller crank for it?

My son is 12 and almost 5". Do you think this size is good? I looked at 20 inch and seemed like it might be too big?
Shannon S on Nov 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Shannon,
This is always a little tough. He is right between sizes and still growing. The 18" will fit him well now, and the 20" will fit great from about 5' to 5'10".
Is this a good park and street bike? Looking for an at home bike from the track
A shopper on Nov 14, 2017
This will be a great entry level BMX bike for cruising the streets and learning tricks. It will not be an excellent park bike.... for that look here:

Jalen_04 on Oct 22, 2017
In your case I would suggest you ride a standard 20" BMX bike. Look here:

This is a freestylebmx, correct? No petal brakes? Also, what is to be assembled on delivery?
A shopper on May 28, 2017
The 18" Impact will have lever brakes (Framed Alloy U-Brakes). This bike will arrive about 3/4 assembled, The final assembly will include the seat, front tire, handlebars, pedals, and alignment. Framed clearly states that if you finish the assembly on your own it can void your warranty.

I am 5'7 and 13 years old, would the 20in be too small for me? Not very good with sizing

How long would it take if you live in Arizona?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2017
It depends on what shipping method you choose. Figure it will be 4 to 6 days typically (We are located up in MN).
Should I go 16 or 18 for my 5 year old? His 12" is way too small now and he has it dialed in. What the difference in seat height and pedal length between the two? Need to know asap
Jg243 on Feb 9, 2017
I spoke to our BMX guys and our bike shop peeps. The difference between the two bike sizes seat to pedals (with the seat all the way down on the 18") will only be about 2 inches. The Q Factor, and Handlebars will be a little wider on the 18" and it will have a long brake throw. If your son is comfortable operating a bike.... the 18" may well be the way to go. He will grow into it. You are welcome to chat with our bike shop at: 1 (800) 409-7669 they can give you more detailed answers.
