Hey im new and was thinking about getting a BMX. I've been looking around and people say size of frame is a big thing. So im 14 fairly tall, what frame would you guys suggest? also the weight is a problem. To be honest im not to picky i'd prefer something on the lighter side. My budget is as low as possible and im not afraid to buy used.Also i've been checking out eBay and you can buy like seperate things (frames etc.) So would this be any cheaper? I've seen a few brands that are apparently good ;
we the people (?)
So just any suggestions for a decent beginners bike would be helpful thanks.

We need specifics on your height and weight.
Also what kind of riding you'll be doing, street, dj's, tooling around, racing. Give us those and we can help you.

I wouldn't mind it as a first bike.

Yeah, that's a good bike. Not the greatest pictures to see what it looks like, but it's not bad.

If you don't win that auction, or decide you would just like to buy a brand new bike, buy a Fit. I have a fit pro and love it, you just may want some new pedals and grips (Jimmy C pedals, DeLarosa grips).
Another pom joins bike forums...
