BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Rocker iROK. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

11 reasons to buy

  • In terms of value, some buyers saw the iROK as better quality than more expensive BMXs.
  • Most owners found the iROK straight-forward and easy to put together, with good instructions.
  • Rocker bikes were admired for their build quality, being strong enough for adult abuse.
  • Packaging impressed, frequently.
  • Buyers are impressed by the massive range of colorways and limited editions.
  • Customer service was lauded for quality, fast replacement of parts, free postage and knowledgeable advice.

  • Rockers took a severe beating; large drops, jumps, impacts, stairs etc. etc.

11 reasons not to buy

  • Hi-Ten Steel is tough but heavy and unforgiving.
  • 1-piece cranks were lower-end.
  • Numerous owners said the iROK was heavy, even though this weight contributed to strength.
  • Some parents lamented the lack of brakes, although this bike is not aimed at small children.
  • A few owners had their seat bolt snap after minimal use.
  • More than one owner complained of the bike’s ‘toxic’ odor, most likely emanating from tires and parts.
  • Some buyers complained that this bike was ‘too small’! Perhaps they didn’t read the words ‘Mini BMX’ in the product description!
  • A couple of owners would have liked tools to be included, for assembly.
  • Two parents considered Rocker’s goat-horns logo to be ‘Satanic’ and ‘demonic’.
  • Occasionally, customers would receive tires that bubbled and were out-of-round.
  • In a minority of situations the chain broke within a few days use.

Bottom line

It’s important to realize that, although Rocker mini BMXs are cute and colorful, they aren’t really intended as a small child’s beginner bike. These are a niche item, intended to be used by adults and big kids for performing serious tricks. The saddle isn’t meant to be sat-on. This shetland-of-bikes is heavy because it’s meant to be thrown around. It has no brakes - and unless you can fit one - it probably isn’t suitable for your small child. That said, the Rocker iROK is great for increasing confidence in stuntwork before transferring to a heavier, full-size BMX. Owners almost universally loved hucking on these mini bikes and recommended them to anyone who loves BMX.

Six Fun Mini Rocker BMX Tricks – From Beginner to More Advanced

Now, I must agree. There is something absolutely ridiculous about a full-grown man riding what is essentially a kid-size bike, but… they’re a great tool for learning some new tricks before we apply them to our full-size bikes.

Rocker Mini Bike Torture Test with Phil

Rockers are chunky mini versions of 20” BMX bikes designed to take a serious amount of adult-sized abuse. Fat tires, massive bars, top-load stems – every bit as RAD as a 20”.
