I have a X-Games Big Air, I got it from this guy down my street for 10 bucks, can someone please tell me if it's a good bike and if i got ripped off for that 10 bucks, all the parts are stock
Only difference is instead of silver mine is black.

x-mart bike? cant say for sure but i think i've seen those at wal-mart. but it was only 10 bucks so i dont really think you got ripped off.

You almost can't go wrong buying a 20inch complete for $10, some exeptions. Theres deffinetly better out there, but no, you didn't get ripped off.

Good bike? Hell no. Ripped off? Depends on whether you want to actually ride it, or ride half a mile on the road to your friend's house and back once in a while...
If you had bought it at Wal-Mart for full price, you'd have gotten ripped off. For $10 you got a bike that you can ride as long as it lasts.

Yes to all the above. For $10, you got a bike you can ride. For $10, you got a bike that will last you probably long enough for you to determine whether or not you like BMX.
So, it's not a great bike. But it's ok for $10. In about three months of so (or the end of summer) come back and let us know how you're doing. Then everyone will tell you to get one of these:
scroll down until you get to the DK Six Pack :) .

No, you didn't get ripped off. The bike does suck, but you can probably sell it for raw metal for more than that.
that is some crap bike ( no offence )
no ripping of there

$10 isn't too bad for that. Ride it 'till you wreck it but start saving up for a better bike. $300 will buy you the DK Six Pack East Hill mentioned which is really good.
