Features and Specifications
Matte Black BMX Frame
Any young BMX rider would be stoked with the design of the Dynacraft Tony Hawk Park Series 720 Boys BMX Freestyle Bike 24″”. It features a matte black frame, neon green stem and hand grips, and authentic Tony Hawk graphics to enhance its overall look.
The frame’s top tube is 21 inches long, which is ideally suited for riders who are 5’8” to 6’ (172 to 180 centimeters) tall. This gives you enough room to do a tailwhip and your other favorite tricks.
Black Tires on Black Rims
The Dynacraft Tony Hawk Park Series 720 Boys BMX Freestyle Bike has freestyle tires (24 inches by 2 inches). The small knobs across the tires’ surface make it easier to get a good “bite,” while the wide design of the tires allow better control and balance.
Alloy Rear U-Brakes
This is a single-speed BMX bike that comes with a Promax rear U-brake, which you can engage by pressing the lever on the right handlebar grip. Whether you`re riding downhill or just cruising around the city, it provides good stopping power.
U-brakes may not be the best choice if you like hitting the outdoor park for a quick session in wet weather conditions. In that case, BMX bikes with disc brakes, like the Framed x Spacecraft Twenty9er BMX Bike, might be best for your needs.
Sturdy 3-Piece Cranks
Like most freestyle BMX bikes, the Dynacraft Tony Hawk Park Series 720 Boys BMX Freestyle Bike 24″” is equipped with a 3-piece crankset. This type of crankset offers several advantages: strength, less maintenance, and easier installation (or removal).
Seat Post with Adjustable Clamp
With the adjustable seat post and larger frame size, you can expect to get more years of use from this bike. It doesn’t come with a quick-release clamp, but it uses an Allen key to tighten or loosen the bolt.
Alloy Threadless Stem
The threadless stem is made of lightweight alloy. Many prefer going threadless for several reasons, like the ease of swapping stems in just a few seconds using only Allen keys.
- Bike weight: 31.1 pounds
- Bike dimensions: 7.25 x 24.5 x 51.5 inches
- Age recommendation: 12 years old and above
- Maximum weight limit: 275 pounds
- Includes a transparent chain guard and wheel, handlebar, and rear reflectors
- Pegs are not included.
Bigger than The Typical
Most BMX bikes usually have 20-inch wheels, which are smaller than the wheels of road bikes or mountain bikes. For taller riders, you may need something bigger, like 24-inch wheels or 26-inch wheels (like the ones the Gravity Area 51 Aluminum BMX Bike 26 inch Wheels have).
However, it’s not easy to find a freestyle BMX bike with 24-inch wheels and tires for a reasonable price. That’s where the Dynacraft Tony Hawk Park Series 720 Boys BMX Freestyle Bike 24″” comes in. Not only does it have larger wheels and tires, it also has an adjustable saddle and handlebars to ensure a more comfortable riding experience.
A Solid Bike for the Good Price
We don’t expect it to last as long as high-end models. However, for the price, this bike is built pretty solid.
It doesn’t buckle under the weight of tall riders, as long as they weigh less than 275 pounds. It also doesn’t wear out (probably except the brake pads) or rust easily despite rough use or constant exposure to harsh weather elements.
Fun to Ride
The Tony Hawk 720, 24 inch BMX Style Black Bicycle is more of a cruiser bike than a trick bike. As a cruiser, it offers smooth and fun rides. Although we wouldn’t recommend using it for traveling long distances.
Note: You can add training wheels to this bike.

Mushy Brake Lever
People have a few issues with the brakes of this bike. The sponge-like feel when pressing the brake lever is just one of these issues. Another con is that the brake pads wear out fast, which has an easy fix. It also doesn’t have coaster brakes, like the Dynacraft Browning Men’s Leather Slug Belt.
Overall, the brakes work fine and are relatively safe. If you want, you can always upgrade to higher end brakes.
Not Everyone Likes the Color Scheme
A matte black BMX bike with neon green accents is not for everyone. You might not also be too thrilled by this color combination.
Some people, who prefer an all-black bike, chose to customize it a little. If you’re going to replace and repaint some parts, you’ll probably spend more than a hundred dollars for everything.
More Suitable for Taller Riders
The 24-inch wheels are the main reasons people chose this bike. They’re popular among adults and taller riders.
If you’re short, don’t let this discourage you from checking out this bike. Your height and weight are important considerations when buying a BMX bike, but the ultimate deciding factors are your comfort and riding style.
Who Is It For?
The Dynacraft Tony Hawk Park Series 720 Boys BMX Freestyle Bike 24″” is a good option for people who want a BMX bike that’s bigger than the standard 20-inch models, without the hefty price. This is considered a cruiser BMX bike, so it’s perfect for those who plan to use it for casual rides around the neighborhood (and maybe perform a few simple tricks and stunts).
With its price, don’t expect pro-level components from the Dynacraft Tony Hawk Park Series 720 Boys BMX Freestyle Bike 24″”. Like any entry-level BMX bike within its price range, it has a few issues of its own. However, most of them are easy to fix.
If you just want a basic BMX bike for cruising or getting some exercise, this bike should be on top of your to-consider list. It’s sturdy, rides well, perfect for tall riders, and reasonably priced.
