So I'm really on the fence right now between the FIT, the Blackeye Killorado, and the Verde Luxe....

Out of all of those, which would you recommend???

Need advice

Hey, im trying to get into BMX with a friend and im looking for a good bike, mainly a flatland/street bike. I've been searching for a few on craigslist. I have about a 300 to 400 max budget but any less is good, new or used. So feel free to tell me about your suggestions for a different bike if you have any. Here are a few that i found,

http://www.danscomp.com/101479.php?cat=BIKES#

alright whatsup everyone im just looking for a tight @$$ bike thats light and has great acceleration(price range $400) im not into doing tricks but i just might try doing them,LoL. also im 210lbs 5'10,long legs short upper body. i wanna be able to sit up straight not all hunched over,LoL.

this bike is going to be for riding around town(to work & back home)mostly streets. maybe long rides 60mins max from city to city. i need some excersise too~thats why i do not want a mountain bike,i like riding uphills on a freestyle bike. any advice would be helpful.

It's going to be a lot cheaper to buy a complete.

The Cygnus is a cruiser (24") which might actually be ok for you because it sounds like you might want to use it more for a commute than a BMX bike. But the DK Helio is a great starter bike for the price. Best bang for your buck.

You probably don't need the gyro on the Convex, and the Blackeye is more than your range and it's a scooter. That frame is sooo ugly.

I would go for the Helio still, it's TT is longer than the Siklon and the Reaction. Get the Cygnus 24" or the Helio.
