United Recruit Review

United is a UK-based cycle manufacturer that has specialized in BMX bikes since 2006. We took their Recruit bikes out with some young family members to try and teach them a few tricks, and to see how these bikes held up.

Overall, our experiences were positive, but the kids had a lot of fun too. The steel frames seem to take quite a hit, which is ideal for new riders and kids. The kids certainly took a few spills trying to learn how to bunny hop and wheelie.

We were not pleased with the componentry used, United’s own, but they did the job, more or less. These bikes really look good, and the narrow frames make the bikes easy to handle and manage. The United tires are excellent for pulling off those basic tricks. The saddle is not very comfy, but you won’t be spending much time in it. Overall, these bikes will definitely be well suited for learning the ropes.
