a little add on...

i want a lightweight bike because a want to be able to bunny hop easily but i wont be doing any huge jumps....and i want it to be pretty sturdy so i wont have to worry about it breaking easy....i will be mostly just riding around on paved streets and want a pretty fast bike

any suggestions??

they arent heavy but not light. All new bikes should coast good if the brakes don"t hit. depends how strong you are if they are fast. the gearing should be about normal.

Personally i recommend my bike, I have a '97 Robinson SST GT, I've only had a few minor problems. They aren't terribly rare, but they are definetly fast (55 with the stock 2 piece sprocket). They are extremely lightweight and can take a beating. (I used to race on the street and i started off road BMXing...thats how much of a beating they can take, i've prolly cased the damn thing 100 times in the last month).

Doesnt matter if they're new or not, i've literally abused the **** out of mine, and it works just like new.


Take a leap of faith man. New or not, this bike will perform.

Make sure if you're getting a 33t chainwheel, you get a 12t freewheel made by DK.

If you can do all that for under $250, I will give you $250 dollars.

Somehow I doubt that. If you are buying everything new, and aren't buying the world's worst parts, there is no way you can do that.
