Hey guys. My name is Džiugas (Dziugas) I am 12 years old from Lithuania, Vilnius.

I want to get a midibike or pocketbike and start trainings. I want something bigger that normal pocket bike, so I saw some super pocket bikes. It's X19r and X18r nitro. Idk which one is better and which one is bigger and fit me good. I am 170cm tall, or 5'5ft. Maybe there are better super/midi bikes? The price limit is 1000$, I want new one.

Thanks.

By the way, I emailed USAPOCKETBIKES, they said that X19 and X18 is discontinued. Is that true? And do you know any more midbikes (good quality) like from Italia or America? Maybe maybe Chinese. Thanks!

EDIT: If no midbikes, than what are good pocket/mini bikes by Italian or American or anything good but NOT Chinese and no Polini, Blata or Aoli.

Thanks guys. And sorry I didn't mentioned that I want a fresh new Superpocketbike/minibike/pocketbike. What do you think about MIDI SR RACE FACTORY AIR COOLED or Elite 14 WRS or GRC Midimoto RXM /Junior. BTW I saw Derbi and Medakrit. Those are much bigger than X's (X19, X18, X15 etc.) Do you know anything in about same size like X19, X18 etc? Because I would like to go for a ride on a street (not legal, there are no cops like house area. And on those like NSR I can really break them and I would look like a self killer :D

I'll be brutally honest, when it comes to racing i've seen every bike mentioned break down at some point during or at the race track. Though if you want a real bike to race only. Then go with the smaller true euro pocketbike. The ysr's are good but definitly not a bike that was intended for track use specific. If you found an nsr or an nsf those would be your best bet. Those are true purpose built track bikes. But they still need work but not as much. Look for the grc mid bike the cream of the crop even the metrakit falls short and has been said not worthy of the money they charge for them. And i heard this from people that own and race them. Now the xbikes well just like anything else needs work aloooooot more. But when it's done right you can run or beat any of the previously mention bikes.
But your not gonna be able to have it both ways. A bike you can ride on the street and one you can take to the track and expect to win races on.
There is a new bike that's being made in China that is said to be better quality and much better than the nsr/ysr/derbi metrakit and nsf. The review i read on it came from a racer that raced and owned all of the
m.
This is what i call a true race bike. Fully adjustable suspension,dual front disc brakes with floating rotors an a adjustable steering damper. Also has an aluminum rear swingarm. It's a little bigger than the ysr's and nsr's.
I would think 2 wheel racing would be bigger on your side than in the US. So i would check your local classified adds ebay.
But if your serious about racing your not gonna be able to have it both ways with the bike though.

Whoa, thanks fellow! But I like... am.... can't have that big bike. Because my dad thinks that buying a superbike is same as idk... He don't like motor things. And if pocket/superpocketbike/minibike or something a bit bigger would fit into my mom's jeep and it would be possible to transport anywhere because my family won't rent/buy a truck or something because of that. I am teen and I can't get licenze to drive soo...
And I guess that big bike (in your link) is really expensive and I would like to fit in 2000$-2500$ and buy safety gear seperatly, not included in that what I wrote. So maybe you could offer a bike in my opportunities. Thanks :)

EDIT: Or even should I get a like good quality but low price bike and tune it to really good one? Because I didn't saw a PB for about 1000$ but not bad qualyti. All are more expensive or Chinese crap. (not sayin all Chinese bikes are crap) And what you think about that bike?

Well heres the best advice i can give you. 1 go and find out where the tracks are that you can race at. 2 find out what bikes are aloud to race on the track. 3 find out what class you can race in. Some tracks only allow people with NO race experience to only race in a beginner class. If this is the case then they only will allow certain bikes in that class.Find out what bike then there you go.

Your sending mix messages,first you want bike but one you can race and ride on the street. Then if i read correctly you didn't want a tiny bike/true pocketbike??? Well the only other bike that could possibly fit in between those lines. Is a China midbike, bigger than a pocketbike but smaller than the ysr and others.
Here's the bottom line,what ever bike you get is only gonna be as good as the owner. I've had my x18 trackbike for 6years. The only thing i had to fix was the chassis in which i ran into a curb head on at speeds over 30mph. I only push the frame in nothing else broke or bent.lol Iv'e to races where the owners/racers had to work on the very very very expensive euro pocketbikes ysr's and others. While me and another racer Blitz just sat and relaxed till it was time to get on the track.
These racers were top notch one of them was the 2008 polini champion in the 50cc open class.
During practice that was the bike he would use to try and keep up with me on my x18.
That's when i realized any and i mean any bike can be made to work on the track. The only difference is the owner/rider.
Go to a pocket bike race and check things out and go from there.

This is what i don't understand the x18 has been out for a while. People buy it cheap and expect a miracle. You know the old saying you get what you pay for.

On that note now remember why my x18 was so problem free. I got rid of everything but the key switch. I use as a kill switch only.

But they have discontinued? And why X18 not X19?

It could be either one,i race my x18 so that's what I'm drawing my experience from dealing with as far as successfully making a China bike really competitive on the track.
Gotta admit these China mids are not for everybody. I've watch brilliant racers/builders fail with these bikes becuase they got frustrated. And the first thing they do is blame the bike instead of themselves. Also you have to be very resourcefull and creative with the China mids oh and having the proper tools help a great deal.
But as i said before go to your local track and find out what's best for you.
