Help please

Hi. I want to get into bmx. I want to be able to ride street and go off ramps. And to cruise around town too, I also wanna try to learn how to flatland but it looks hard, but i will practice
I'm about 95 pounds and am 5'3" and not very strong (yes i am one tiny fool). So Yeah. I'm interested in a lighter frame around 30 pounds or so pounds.

I was lookin at the Hoffman Condor 18, or a disrupter EL-1, whichever is better and/or lighter, I am leaning towards hoffman or haro. Can anyone tell me a good bike?

I need a bike in the price range of 250-300.

Can someone help me out??!

ok, have you studied "human ancestors"?
there are **** habilis, Australopithecus afarensis, **** sapiens neanderthalis, etc.
Maybe if you take a look at the historically recorded phenomena associated with each species, you can then see what skill level will fit you to a certain bike, perhaps. For example, I consider myself a **** sapiens sapiens. I am 6'0" and about 191#. There is one species that is eight feet tall, and you are obviously not it. **** sapiens sapiens is considered smart by writers of books written by **** sapiens sapiens, and I am considered smart by people other than **** sapiens sapiens. So, maybe **** sapiens sapiens is smart. However, **** neanderthalis has a rather larger brain than sapiens sapiens. To translate some of this into bike terms would take some research...
I don't recall what species is 5'3". However, if you do the research on your species, then maybe you can garner information from bike sources and try to get some sort of synthesis of info.

Good luck,

Jacob

shut-up!.

dont go for the hoffman condor 18 as it'll be too small. the disrupter sounds good though.
