Im going to assume your in england? I couldnt imagine pushing around a 300 pound bike all day

I do however think that every bike made, has a good group of people that it would work for, even the x-mart $69 bikes... I know my first bike was under $100, but I loved then as much the multi-thousand dollar bikes of today...

BTW, anyone know what 300pounds is in USD?

RoadRash is dead on: I loved my first bike, I learned more about working on a bike because of that bike than I have on any other bike since then. I would NEVER recommend a bike over about 300 bucks to anyone who is getting into the sport and I only recommend entry level bikes designed by serious bmx companies to beginners so they are at least on a somewhat SAFE bike.

But, when you start spending more cash you really end up paying into more brand name parts and stronger stuff. A newbie who doesn't know how to maintain a bike to begin with is going to destroy a $500.00 bike (mechanically) just as fast as they will as $200.00 bike. Stuff falls apart, and most beginners don't have a clue how to properly maintain and adjust their bike.

That's not even including the thousands of kids who buy bikes to ride serious bmx, then quit after 6 months or a year. What a waste a $500.00 bike is on those kids... or more accurately, their parents.

The DK Cincinnatti remains one of the best valued entry level bikes on the market for street/dirt/vert. The DK Signal blows away (completely!) any other entry level flatland bike out there. For racing... ask someone else, I'm clueless.
