Im new to the bmx world and just need some help. I figure that i would probally be doing flatland. I dont have a bike yet and was wondering if anybody can help me figure out what bike to buy. I dont have a set budget but i would not like to spend a lot of money on a bike right away. Thanks.

Sorry to write again but I would also like the bike to be able to last a few years and maybe be able to take some street riding. thanks again.

I know of www.flatlandfuel.com for all flatland parts. I might also be able to suggest the Haro M5 or M6. You might be able to look on www.danscomp.com

If you aren't going overboard with grinding, almost any steel frame will last you a while. The aluminum pegs might get chewed up if you end up riding a lot of street, but pegs aren't horribly expensive.
The DK Signal at flatlandfuel is a killer bike for the price.

I hear a lot about the DK signal anyone no how much it weighs?

Doesn't really matter how much it weighs. A good freestyle bmx bike really is built for durability and quality over strength. Really good bikes may focus on weight issues, but it's not something to worry about if you aren't willing to spend $700.00+ on a bike.
Most likely that bike is between 32 and 34 pounds - or right around average for an entry level bike.
