I'm new here. My son is nearly 13, and has developed an interest in BMX bikes. He's been saving money from his dog walking/cat sitting jobs, and would like to purchase a used BMX. We've been looking at ads on kijiji, but we're new to this and don't really know what to look for.
So far we've seen the following:
4 year old Norco (model unknown) for $150 CDN (we're in Toronto, so are looking at ads in CDN $)
Hutch (model unknown) < 1 year old for $220
various Haro models for $200+
GT Slammer, brand new, with original pedals still sealed ( I understand these frames are made of Hi-Ten steel....is this good, or would it be heavy? Should we be looking for bikes with frames made from some other material?) $195
