i depends if u want an F series (go to forum Haro F2 or something like that) or do u want a degroot series, or Mirra series, and the Nyquist series. if u go with a nyquist or mirra or degroot those are the best ones to get or if u dont want to spend that much F-Series

The *names* give some insight into what the bike's specific geometry is best suited for.

The shop I work at part time is a Haro dealer, and they sell GT as well. I may have to pick up a little baby 20" bike, as soon as I can decide which one.

If you are just starting out, the weight wont be an issue. If you never rode a super light bmx bike, you wont notice the difference. It woul dbe great for you to learn everything on a tank and then drop 15 lbs. off of it when you can afford it and everything will improve.

They don't sell them. The distribute them. You need to go to a Haro dealer's site.
