Whats up guys..
Used to ride a little back in highschool but got out of it.. so no idea where to start again. Little strapped for cash, would prefer a cruiser with the option of doing a few tricks/racing here and there.. I'll be mainly using it for commuting to school and around the city - I live in St. Pete and go to USF - and a road bike/Mtn bike just doesn't appeal to me. Tell me what you think about this deal..
I have $250 to spend and I want to buy a new bike. thing is I just got in the BMX scene and I really don't know where to start, can a brother get help ? what's a good bike to start off with? im looking into something for flatland tricks..
Trying to add another bike into my life, so I want to try bmx. I found http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/bik/1232962067.html, from what I've read the frame is on the heavy side and it seems that it has a regular cupped headset. Or I can probably get a Fit AM at the local bikeshop (bike gallery) which I'll probably do tomorrow. Here's some notes, I'm a little guy maybe 5'3" 120lbs, upper body not quite strong, legs are pretty damn toned if that helps with anything
Yes hi ten is garbage. Especially considering the price of the 2 series bikes they should be chromoly. Fit gets worse and worse every year. Hi tensil steel is like building a bike out of water pipes. Doing any serious riding on it you be lucky to have the frame last you a season.
Tell you what, If I can find a Helio in Portland I'll get it, if not, then oh well..
EDIT: So I found a shop that stocked the DK Helio and it's about 6 miles away at a family/recreational bike shop. But then I forgot another bike. The Subrosa Letum http://goodsbmx.com/subrosaletumdirt2009.aspx plus it's at Goods bmx in Portland, plus it's an actual bmx shop. So now I'm gonna go for the subrosa
Is this a good deal? http://tulsa.craigslist.org/bik/1308990854.html I juststartedtrying get back into riding and was looking for something that's not my old diamondback and that wont break the bank
idk what brands to stay away from. So any help is appreciated. Is verde bikes any good?
That's a pretty good deal. But the frame is hi-tensile steel, and brakeless. I just hope you know that you can not run brakes. The wheels and forks on it are aftermarket, so that makes it better too. I'd get it.
