If I were you I would save up and get a better bike. Look at some Easterns or some DK's.

It'll be hard for you to break any bike, unless you're good enough to be doing things that will actually break it. You don't crack welds and shear off crankarms hopping down three-stair sets and jumping out of curb cuts.

i was going to be getting a diamondback and everyone here convinced me not to, and put it this way, i am very thankful for them doing so.

also they are heavy for the most part, if you are little you are going to have trouble with a heavy bike.

why dont you tell us how much money you have to spend and we'll help tell you some good bikes to look into.
