new to bmx

hey. Im just starting bmx after skateboarding for a few years, and I was just wondering what sort of bike should I get for freestyle, any particular model? Money aint a real issue, I jus want a good beginner bike.
cheers

If price doesnt matter I suggest going out and buying the new Sunday! frame and building it from the ground up.

Since money isnt a factor you shouldnt have a problem with spending $1500.00+

hey, wethepeople, i'm guessing you know a bit about the bikes. this guy on ebay claims he bought this wethepeople bike for 1100$. http://cgi.ebay.com/We-The-People-Fl...QQcmdZViewItem you figure that's close or a lie? i looked up the frame and it was about 600-700, so i'm not sure. i could buy it for 400 plus shipping if it doesn't sell, but i'm thinking about that beginner bike from flatlandfuel.

well iam just getting into BMX also. I mostly do dirtjumps and ride street. i recently jsut got a Eastern Trail Digger. I love it so far. only problem, when i had to put on the front tire, it wouldnt fit. The forks were to small. My dad had some hydrolic thing and it spread then right apart. other then that, its fine. plus iam 13 90 LBS and like 5'3"

Sounds Sketchy.

Why did you just take it to a bike shop?
