I can sell you a nice light blue FMF chromoly racing frame, Euro BB go to www.fmfbmx.com to get a look, the site says 1" headset, but thats the specifics for a JR frame. Mine has 1 1/8" headset. Also will sell you a black FMF pro 1.75 wheelset 32 hole. not the strongest wheelset but it will hold up good.

Don't you have a bike shop that can tell you which bike you should buy, and sell it to you?

You could look on http://danscomp.com/ for one also.. for the most part the bikes they sell are pretty good.
