What BMX (newbie)?

Hey.. I normally ride mtb but recently a few friends and I decided we want to ride BMX. We are all beginners and I'd like any advice on what BMX we should shop for. Our buget is 200$ to 350$ canadian, maybe a bit more if it is really worth it. Any help is appreciated!! Thanks..

- Nathan

first of what are u plans, racing, street, flatland, or dirtjumping. bmx nowadays can refer to all of those. I'm hoping ur smart enough to know which one of those are. Plus what kind of companyies do you like. Rider owned or big corporations. or does it not matter.

I think Dan's Comp rules. But that's the only mag I have. I have a couple of "rideBMX" mag's too. There pretty good. They have a couple big ads of parts and stuff in the back couple pages. I would ask yer local bike shop and then go from there. I don't really know, I just started too.
