Ongoing list of decent BMX bikes.

I searched and didn't see a list of decent BMX bikes, I think we all have our preferences (usually the ones we ride or drool over) So i think we should do it like this. Renaming bikes is ok, it'll be more like a review then.


Brand:
Weight:
Speed:
Cost:
Performance:
Availability of parts:
Durability:
Skill:


So I'll start, and if a mod or someone thinks that this is a good idea, they should sticky it.


Brand: Hoffman
Weight: Heavy as all hell, but easy to manual, wheelie, and jump.
Speed: Not the fastest bike around although its not really made for racing.
Cost: Average for a high performance bike. ($450)
Performance: Excellent once you get the hang of it. Awkward weight
Availability of Parts: Ehh, you can find 'em, but not the stock ones.
Durability: Havent broken it yet.
Skill: Intermediate, someone new probably shouldn't ride this bike.

As well as this is an idea, and a thoughtful way to help out, there are already lots of posts on this same thing. There are at least a few hundred threads telling people to get a DK Six Pack if they are beginners (not even kidding on the hundreds part). If they aren't beginners or have a bit of extra money to spend, people go for Fit Flows, Integral Bel-Airs, Stolen Heaters, and now the new Kink Roc. All of this has been stated many times. If we all post something up (which I doubt because there are a lot of really lazy people here), this may work. I doubt it, though.

The Goal is to stop those threads, they kind of take away from all the extra stuff in the BMX forum, for example how to do a specific stunt. If someone posts something like that, then we can redirect them to this thread and delete their "What bike should i get" thread, then it'll clean up this section of the forum nicely. Leaving room for questions and/or stories that dont get as much attention as they deserve because people are asking the same question over and over.



Speaking of that....we need to have a way for people to ask specific questions on a specific bike. This is a job for... THE ADMINISTRATOR!!!

I think that's still in my Gameboy from a few years back. I really want to pick it up again just to do that surfing minigame. I used to be the boss at that.

It was easily the best pokemon game, plus I had a lvl99 Gengar.

It was sweet to be able to do all the final pokemon league battles with just one pokemon.
