Beginner's dirt/street BMX

I have been looking at these bikes -

Hoffman 900
Hoffman Flow
WeThePeople Nova
Huffy M-80
Mongoose Brawler
Haro Backtrail X2

Sorry but I don't know much.
What would you recommend? Those bikes are all between 200 - 230, what that is in USD I'm afraid I have no idea.

The bike will get used for dirt and street. Plus I am very small so if it comes to it a lighter bike is preferable.

Depending on your main usage and availability on tools I would get the Hoffman 900. Same bike as the Flow but comes stock with axle pegs and a front brake.

i'd go with either one of the hoffmans because they are reliable bikes and u also dont quite get the "poser" look of haro i have no opinions because the lack of knowledge on the other bikes.
