    Holy **** 7 inches, oh my god you should go pro. Check other threads. You should use the search option this time and all your next times. But ill be nice this time, go to walmart and get the mongoose ko team, it may not be the best but i had fun with one on the dirt trails just needed a ton of upgrades.

    Mate, ignore racersk66. He's guilty of some pretty stupid stuff. Sucks that your folks got divorced too. The important thing is that you think positive thoughts, and keep riding. Tell us what kind of riding you do, and what you think your budget might be. Sometimes it's better to get a used bike.

    Don't take advice from the assclown that thinks Specialized is the Holy Grail of BMX.


    Scooz, you sound more like a beginner than an advanced rider. You should be able to get a decent entry level bike around the $200 mark. You don't need to spend a lot of money on a bike right now, you need to spend a lot of time working on your skill set.

    Exactly. Don't bother reading the illegible posts.

    You totally suck. Delete that, or apologize for being a dick.

    Ex, you are the one that just wrote the big rant about n00bs posting "what kind of bike should i get" threads. If the kid can't take a joke, too bad. Dear scooz: you should get a Huffy MJ-12 they are cheap and very good for pro-hops.

    You're right, he's a noob. But if you read his post, you'll see that he's the kind of kid that we should cut a little slack for. He's not some jackass asking about welding disc mounts to his BMX.

    Mercy for this question. What's a pro-hop?
    I play guitar in a country band, this is my page on the band website.

    a funny name for a bunny hop. In my parts it's very common to hear "J-hop" also.
