    Are there any uphills that you have to climb?

    Though they are a bit more complex to maintain, mountain bikes are way more versatile and you should generally be able to get around more quickly and comfortably on one.

    well first thing is a bmx are less expencive and less complex soo the cost is less for a good bmx. where a mtn bike of the same price as the bmx will most likely be on the lower side of quality and value scale, and if your going any distances the mtn will have generaly more comfort but more work to maintain, I have both and it all depends on what I want to do that chooses the bike

    You could also get a 20" mini MTB like the Cannondale Hooligan. If you like to go on fire roads and gravel paths, it would serve you better than a BMX bike.
