    I Need Some Advice

    I currently own a Joker 05 Diamond Back. I bought this bike like 2 years ago and owned it for about a year without getting into the whole BMX thing. The next year I saw a you tube video on flatland and got interested so i started learning the basics etc and now I am intermediate at flatland I guess. Anyways my question is whether I should stick with this bike or buy a new one? What are some intermediate bikes? Is Diamond Back a good brand because I didn't really know anything about bikes when I was buying this one. I just saw a nice looking one and got it.

    If your doing flatland, it would be wise to have a freecoaster. I would say to get an alright bike meant for flatland. I saw a bike somewhere for like 220$ and it had a freecoaster and 2 breaks and a gryro and oversized pegs.

    Somehow I don't buy the whole "becoming intermediate" at flatland part if you don't know that flatland really requires a freecoaster.

    Most people will probably recommend the DK Signal.
