Adult version of the Big Wheel

Remember being a kid and getting your big wheel going fast enough that you could pop the brake and spin out like mad? Check out the KMX Karts series of tadpole bicycles. I’ve been looking into getting a tadpole bike of late and found these folks while researching. There are some great quicktime .mov files of the bike in action offroad, jumping, and powersliding. The thing looks like an absolute blast, and the entry level model is actually really inexpensive relative to the normal $1200+ other tadpole bikes run. This is not what I’m going to buy for myself, I’m getting a touring/commuter bike, but man these things are tempting as a second bike.

    Hi Sheldon,

    Offhand I don’t know, but I do know that I was able to find dealers in my area by first choosing the model I wanted and then looking at the dealer directory on the manufacturer’s website. Also I’ve seen tadpoles at larger/higher end and specialty bike shops. It’s pretty much hit or miss though. Best of luck. I’ve had mine for over a year now and definitely love it.
