BMX Bike For 200$ and Under.

Hey guys, Im 16. I think this kind of thread has been posted many times, but I just need some suggestions on a BMX bike for a 150-200 $. Im not really a BMX guy that goes to skate parks, I just like driving them on the streets and jumping up on some curbs and stuff just to get to places without walking.
Ive been looking on some sites and most of the Bikes are 200$ and over. But in Yoys R us there is bikes for 200$ and under, that are really heavyweight and crappy. Thanks for any help.

A shop in my area will put $300 Giants on sale for $200 toward the end of the summer. Well built, but a bit heavy. But, they are VERY sturdy, tough bikes.
