New Bike

Hey guys, I'm wanting to get into BMX. I used the search button, but everyone was only willing to spend 300 and under. What would be a good bike for around 500 $.

Thanks!

You can get a good starter bike for $300, the DK Six-Pack. If you aren't exactly sure you're going to stay in BMX for awhile just get the Six-Pack.

O ok, cool, I'll probably go with that.

Now it only comes with two foot pegs off Dans comp, do you guys think I'll want them on the other side of the bike right away? I'll mainly be doing Flatland and there's a little skatepark near me I have to go check out.

I'll try to summarize.
- I searched and found all the times that this forum recommended a 6 Pack, but I have more money and would like to buy a better bike with my $500.

-You should try a 6 pack

-OK! thanks for the info!

that's what I read.

If you are doing flatland, then why not get a flatland bike? www.flatlandfuel.com
