I bought a Mirraco 20Forty off a guy from Craigslist this winter and I like the bike so far. I pretty much plan to use it for some urban, pumptrack use, and maybe a little DJ as well. It's a pretty solid bike. I'd gladly buy one again.

What's that for?

That's for where he should be posting a question like this. He said that he's looking for an affordable 24" that isn't a BMX bike.

Oh ok. I thought maybe you were pointing me there for the idea of me wanting a pump track.

Man, I thought bikers were cool, laid back people. I'm new here and so far I've seen a lot of people that need to pull the stick out of their butt and relax. Watch your head around here if you ask a question...you'll get one or two nice responses but you'll get many more telling you where you should have posted your question or correcting you on the type of bike you were asking about. I'm 35 and used to ride BMX bikes and was interested in finding a cruiser myself. This was the first place I looked as well. Maybe it's not technically a bmx bike, but when I browse the sections, it's the first place I would have posted as well. I ride in Austin and generally the people here are friendly and helpful. Either they aren't using this forum or they are like Jekyl and Hide when it comes to this site. Check my other posts. I asked some questions about bike racks and ran into the same issues there. Just chill out and ride.

Do you want a street/trails cruiser or race cruiser?
Just chill out and ride.
OP said he was not interested in a BMX style bike, hence the comments about maybe asking somewhere that wasn't the BMX section.
OP also said he wanted the cheapest "rought" (?) possible. Hence the advice to just go to walmart.
This is the best advice anyone in here is qualified to give him, based on the questions he's asking.
