Wikipedia has an article on:
"The classic bike for tooling the neighborhood or doing a double peg grind. Reinforced steel, super comfortable seat that wont cut off the circulation to your scrotum too bad. (i.e. for wimps!) A great deal for the cash-strapped."
Pedal and Metal Cycles description

The BMX is a bicycle in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


The BMX, as implied, is a BMX bike sporting a compact frame, wheels, and a sturdy handlebar.

3D Universe

While the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas rendition consists only of the bare essentials, the Vice City Stories rendition comes with padding on portions of the frame. Vice City Stories also features a female variation of the BMX, which features a step-through frame (as opposed to a diamond frame), a pink frame color and a front mounted basket. The Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories rendition features larger wheels and higher handlebars, appearing larger than the San Andreas rendition. The BMX in GTA San Andreas features a bell, whilst the BMX in Vice City Stories does not.

Grand Theft Auto V

In Grand Theft Auto V, the BMX has almost the same design from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas but looks even smaller. Despite the bicycle's description stating it has pegs, the in-game model does not feature pegs, as well as lacking a bell, unlike the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas rendition.

3D Universe

One of the BMX's major advantages is its maneuverability. In addition to its compact size, the BMX also allows the player to execute super high bunny-hops along with the standard fare of wheelies and stoppies. In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, players can only execute a low bunny hop using the BMX.

The BMX's top speed, however, is wedged between that of the Bike and the Mountain Bike, and is not considerably fast as a result. The BMX is also unintended for off-road use, as the player is prone to dismounts from the bike and the resulting injuries; neither is it suited for getaways when pursued by cops.

The BMX in GTA San Andreas and Vice City Stories is indestructible, though will burst into flames if it rests upside down, and the BMX in Vice City Stories can be damaged by the Flamethrower.

Grand Theft Auto V

In Grand Theft Auto V the BMX is not as fast as the Race Bikes and the Scorcher but is faster than the Cruiser, which is the slowest bike in the game. The BMX is quite small and light, making it easier to perform stunts such as bunny hops and wheelies. The bike is quite maneuverable, owing to its light weight and short wheelbase.

In GTA V, BMXs are no longer indestructible, and the wheels can break off if the player collides with another object at high speed.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

The BMX is the first vehicle the player uses in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. During the mission Sweet & Kendl, four BMX bikes are used as "getaway vehicles" by CJ, Sweet, Ryder and Big Smoke to go back to Grove Street after the Ballas destroyed Smokes's car

Also in GTA San Andreas, the player can participate in a side mission called the BMX Challenge where Carl must pass through a number of red coronas.

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Victor can use a BMX bike in the mission Kill Phil: Part 2 while he is inside the Hyman Memorial Stadium. This the best way to travel through the Stadium as there is a limited amount of time. 

Also in GTA Vice City Stories, there is a mission called Mashin' Up The Mall, where Vic must pass through various coronas inside the North Point Mall.

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto V, BMXs are commonly riden by pedestrians. However, in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the BMX can only be found in certain points of the city.
