This line of argumentation is useless. Mow some lawns, save some dough. Sh*t costs money, kid.

yea...
in the world of bmx (this may not be true 100% of the time...but in most cases)
less money = less quality

dont go cheap for less quality parts. save up for the really good ones so you dont have to replace them.

I dunno, despite what Expatriate has to say on the matter, I would feel a *little* bad for beating up on a 12 year old. I'm a dick to people who should be able to fight back, but I don't kick puppies and club baby seals.

Look, *I* can remember being 12 and drooling over the Burton Snowboards catalog back when I was riding my neon pink Kemper Twin like 100 years ago. There's a certain enjoyment to just wanting stuff, but you're probably *not* gonna get it until you start pulling in an income, and even then a lot of the coolest, latest stuff's gonna be out of reach until you're 1337 enough to have dealer hookups, shop discounts, pro form, industry insider type stuff (stuff that comes at a price of its own...when I have a complaint about my super-trick Salomon stuff I go straight to the rep before I trash their name).

Here's a hint: narrow your wish list down to one or two things you can actually save up for...a frame might be a long way off, but it's doable if you focus on that and don't blow your piggybank on levers, brakes, headset, stem, whatever.

You misunderstood my comment. Apart from the usual semi-legible questions, there's a certain repetition here. "I want the strongest and lightest, but I don't want to spend a lot". Yeah, we all want that.

Snazzy, care to quote KB again?
