A racing bike, a mountain bike and a BMX bike.
It's a BMX intended for "Street" style riding. Heavier and stronger than a race bike, but will probably have brakes as opposed to a bike for "vert" riding.
Yes, if you can find the correct bottom bracket for the frame.
Depends on what type of riding you want to do. For BMX-type stunts - get a BMX. For going some serious distances both on and off-road - get a MTB. Don't really know what you mean by jump bike.
There are MTBs with 20" and 24" wheels for smaller riders, which probably is the closest thing to what you're describing. These wouldn't be BMX bicycles though, since BMX bikes don't have gears and have a taller handlebar than a mountain bike.
It will if you have bmx (or bmx style) cranks.
BMX are built around 20" wheels while MTBs are usually built around 26" wheels.
It's more a question of "different" than outright "better".If you want to use your bike to get around with, then a mountain bike with gears and bigger wheels is better. It will be faster, less fatiguing and offer greater rider comfort.But if you want to do BMX style riding, with jumps and tricks and that, then a BMX is a better choice.
you can find a BMX bike in halfords
No such thing. Trials is a sub-sport of mountain biking, often called "mountain bike trials". It's a sport similar to motorcycle trials where one takes a light bike and hops around an obstacle course. You might have heard "BMX" and "trials" in the same sentence because a BMX bicycle can essentially make a good trials bike with minimal modifications.
The bmx thruster rampage bike is a exellent bike
You're probably thinking of "Dirt riding" or "Dirt Jumping".
Probably not. BMX bikes usually have freewheels while MTBs usually have freehubs, and these don't mix. You might be able to use parts from a single-speed MTB on a BMX though.
Not necessarily, but if you want to get into serious tricks like tail whips and bar spins i suggest you get a bmx. but you can easily do a wheelie or a small bunny hop with a mountain bike.
There's no such thing as a trick bike buddy. A bmx technically is a "trick" bike. So just get a bmx if you want to do tricks.
One can buy a custom BMX bike in Las Vegas from a few stores. One can get a BMX custom made from 'Just BMX', 'Bolder BMX', 'Bike World' and 'Vegas Bike Store'.
All mongoose bmx are horrible! if you are looking for a good bmx bike look at Fit, kink, haro bmx bikes.
A bike to use in a triathlon would be either a mountain bike or a ten speed street bike depending on the riding, do not use a bmx bike or you will be sorry.
A hyper is better
no but you can get a dirt bike or a cruiser bike or a speed bike but i havnt seen a bmx bike yet.
No simple answer to that. Both BMX and MTBs have several different types of bottom brackets. Some of these are interchangeable, some aren't.
a bmx bike
First I'm not at all certain what you mean by "mountain bike brakes", could mean either discs or v-brakes. Either way I'm not sure that either the frame or fork on a BMX would have the fittings required to take MTB brakes in place.
As a general rule if two bikes are in the same price range, the smaller of the two will be lighter. This because there is less material used in the smaller BMX due to it's much simpler construction. But, when you head for the high end, a flatland or racing bike is going to be much lighter compared to a mountain bike.
The type of bike that is mostly used form BMX riding are the purpose-built BMX bikes.
