Last longer, cost less money in the long run, stronger, lighter by a lot. looks better, rides smoother, less of a chance to injure yourself.

Craftsmanship, durability and strength. Quality in general is just far superior. If he needs to know, take him to see them

Most walmart bikes are not built to take a good amount of abuse. "Name brand bikes" are built specifically to the needs of bmx. Generally the metal quality is better, the bearings are better, the welds are better, basically overall the general craftsmanship is WAY better than any bike found in Walmart. "Name brand bikes" are designed by and for bmx riders, whereas Walmart bikes are generally designed by some generic bike manufacturer, and they aren't catering to the needs of bmx.

One of the main things also is to look at who is putting the bike together.. I've seen a lot of fuck ups on display bikes in department stores..

better quality parts. i.e. more expensive metals and aluminums that are stronger and lighter. sealed bearings that are lighter, smoother, stronger, and less of a hassel. better tires. better grips. parts last WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY longer, and are lighter. overall bike is lighter.
basically, tell him its like comparing a 1989 toyota corolla to a 2010 ferrari. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!!!

Basically a bike from walmart is an ok bike for a little kid to ride up and down the street, but it is really just a bike for show. once you break a part on a walmart bike it can not be replaced most of the time, so the bike will become pretty much useless, and you will have to buy a whole new bike which will cost more money then just buying a good bike from a bike shop, where bikes should be bought, this goes with the popular saying "buy nice or buy twice" or rather in this case buy over 3 bikes within one year. Another thing wrong with bmx bikes from department stores, such as walmart, is that the geometry is not created in a way which is needed for bmx. Rather the bikes geometry is made just for style. So in conclusion you can see that a walmart bike is made for style, which can be great for those who just like to ride up and down their street, and an actual bmx bike from a bike shop is actually designed for the sport and to take much abuse.
