    I got to admit I did post something similar but regarding completes.

    BUT

    If somebody could give me an idea of a tried and tested full bike for around $300- $400 for street.
    I'm 22 but only short like 5'5 and 160lbs but want a light bike as i'll be doin some jumps.

    I have done BMX before and I was good a few years back at silly little flatland tricks and small jumps but I wanna get into it again now. This forum inspires me alot but I could do with further advice regarding a bike.

    So if you can help and your not t26... whatever suggesting a dimondback or a redline please post!

    Oh and to answer the fella who started this, from what I gather on here FIT, DK and Higher end hoffman are good.

    For the most part, i agree

    Fuzzyryders mongoose is decent, since its one of the higher end, non-kmart ones...

    I was lookin at a Mongoose today that looks sweet as it's the McCann 06.

    I know f-all about bikes really but it has Snafu pedals and levers, an Oddessy rear hub/ rim or just hub and sealed something or other.

    Here you go http://www.alansbmx.com/product_info...oducts_id=2627

    I'm going to buy that or a wethepeople darkness as there the best I can find round here.

    The WTP spec is http://www.alansbmx.com/product_info...oducts_id=2672

    Which one would you get guys?

    the mccann is much better in my opinion, 2 of my friends have darknesses and i have ridden the mccann and it seems a better bike. Also, the mccann has much better parts like snafu and odyssey instead of salt on the wethepeople which you cant even buy seperatly

    Acctually, it's not a mongoose, its a hyper LP signature frame. Only the bars, stem, fork, and seat are mongoose. And yes, the Mongoose mcann is a very good bike, as is the fuzz pro, and a few other of their high end completes.
