    Hey all. I need to get myself a kewl flatland bike and hit the streets and parks learn to do those triple decades to impress my girlfriend. What's your idea of the ideal $350/$500 flatland bike? GT Performer? Haro Shredder? Diamondback Fester? As you can probably see, I don't know ****, which is why I come here today, beg for your knowledgeable help.

    Thanks.

    Also, if you can recommend a cool L.A. area BMX shop, that'd be appreciated too.
    Love you all. Keep it hard.

    I started on the Haro M6, its a good bike. Your not going to learn tricks overnight. It takes along time, and decades can be pretty hard.

    Free Agent wouldn't know flatland if it Martti Kuoppa walked in the door and did a blender in their faces. They do make some so-so bikes for the price, but none are flatland.

    The cheapest, and by far the best, entry level flat bike is the DK Signal.

    The Haro M6/M7 are both good as are pretty much any bike EXCEPT the KHE bikes on www.flatlandfuel.com

    I suggest you start your search, and end your search at www.flatlandfuel.com as Pat is one of the nicest, and most helpful, and knowledgable people you will find in the sport.

    Congratulations on bumping a thread that's not only been dead for over a year, it's been rehashed and re-addressed several times in the meantime.

    **** off, stupid ass newb.

    Bumping old threads is a bannable offense.
