I know nothing about BMX other than the 3 disciplines that it involves. Last year my son and I went over to the local skate park with his Canadian tire brand bike and a couple of teenage kids helped him around getting to know the "do's and don't's". It was a great experience for him and now he wants to race and play around at the local skate park all the time. I'd like to get him and I started ( I won't be racing). Is it possible to buy 2 bikes and gear in the $1000.00 price range? If anyone can help us out, I'd like to know brand names of bikes to consider and approximate prices. Any other words of advice would also be hugely appreciated.
