    Best and worst BMX brand

    Hello everyone!

    I am new here so please excuse me if my question has already been asked 1 million times. I already checked the search engine but I didn't get the specific information that I need, so I am risking this question!
    What do you think the worst and cheapest and generally bad quality BMX brand is? And which is the best? I need this for a story that I'm writing in which one character has a really bad second-hand bike (but she thinks it's the greatest) and another character has this great bike that is really expensive and has a whole bunch of accessories. Thank you so much for your help!

    My personal favorites:
    Solid, Odyssey, S&M, T1 and Tree.

    My least favorite is Poverty and most companys that just make the same stuff everyone else is making, instead of coming up with new ideas.

    Favorite: Shadow, Tree, Odyssey, Sunday!, and The Take. If the take had a frame in my size, I would do anything to get it.

    I've actually been looking for ways I could replace the Macneil with a One True Ave frame, but I need another job or a cheaper truck .

    Even with a cheaper truck I would need another job .

    20-20.1.

    Bloody small, I could probably go up to 20.25, wich is what I was going to try, or even go down to 19.75.

    I can't use a 20" toptube. The smallest toptube I can use is my friend 20.2". I prefer to have a lot of room and use the 20.5"

    I would 'bet the farm' that you wouldnt notice the difference between at 20.2" tt and a 20.5"tt...

    Yes, I do actually notice the difference. I've tried a 20.2 and 20.5 and noticed the difference. I can't use a 20 though... that's way too small.
