Absolute BEST bang for your buck. Part list is awesome and you won't have to replace parts for a while.

Except that isn't in his budget...And how old are you? because if you're going to continue to grow that can change some things.
These might be a bit more to your wallet's liking.
Take your pick. Any one of these should do you just fine.

Watch out for some of those, a few come without brakes. That's fine as long as that is what you want. Since you are new, brakes might be a good idea. The Fit bikes are on sale because the 2012's will be out in a week or two. Good chance to save some money.
Another thing you need to be aware of is that if buying from Dan's, some bike companies will not honor the warranty if you build it yourself. Don't you have a local bike shop that sells BMX bikes? I know there are not that many like us anymore. We sell all our bikes for the same prices that you find on line. That goes for parts too. In fact, lots of times we can beet them.

They all come with brakes, they're just ****ty calipers, its the law or something like that.
