Huffy’s $188 Starter BMX Racing Bike, HX-Pro

After a long departure from the BMX racing world, Huffy steps its toes back in with the HX-Pro. It’s a super affordable entry level aluminum BMX racing bike. This is Huffy’s first attempt at making a BMX racing bike that’s actually worth checking out in ages. They used the widely popular black and sky blue colorway commonly seen on high end race bikes. The top tube has some hydroforming and it has an integrated headset. I couldn’t find any geometry information but geo looks pretty legit and I’m gonna assume that the bottom bracket is euro. From looking at the pictures I would guess the top tube is somewhere between 19.5″-20.5″. I couldn’t find any info on the finer details though. I think this is the direction that these department store BMX brands should go. If they’re gonna make cheap/affordable bikes, at least make them look legit

I wish I got my hands on this bike before it sold out Walmart.com, so I could test review. I’ll keep my eyes out if they make more available.

  1. This is great. When I had my own bike shop 15 years ago, I would have sold the shit out of a bike like this. Even if the price got pushed to like 225-250 in a LBS. Gets more kids on more bikes.

  2. So I have this same Huffy. It has sealed wheels out of the box only thing t hat has to be charged is forks but other than that its crazy light and stiff I will be getting another one soon

  3. Forgot to mention it has a 27.2mm 10″ long steel seatpost with a padded railed seat, which is comfy but heavy. For the track you can replace that cheaply. The rims and hubs are alloy but as you’d guess the wheels weren’t true out of the box.

  4. I bought one of these a couple months ago before they went off sale. Just like all other dept store bikes they are all out of stock now. Been to target or Walmart lately? Bikes are all gone. For the price it’s a decent bike. Net weight listed on the box was 11.0 kg (24.2 lbs.). I have to assume that includes the kickstand, chainguard & reflectors, since by my scale after I took all that off it was 23.0 lbs.
    Top tube measures 20.5″, chainstay 15.0″, seat tube 8″. It has 9″ tall bars and a 5″ tall headtube and about 1/2″ of stem spacers which leaves the bars pretty high. Positive: The frame is aluminum with decent welds, the cranks are 175mm 2-piece aluminum with a chainring. 44/16 gears. Stem is OK, I think the same one that the Mongoose Title uses.
    Negative: pedals & grips are trash, brakes are sub par, welds on bars were sloppy, tires are very heavy. Switch all these and you are in business.
    Huffy also makes a steel framed version of this bike with cheaper cranks called the H-X Comp for $124, but also sold out.
