    I'm gonna start bmx

    I am 14 years old, and I plan on starting bmx. I want to build my own bike on Dan's Comp. I got about a $500-$700 to spend. Basically, I know very little about bikes. What all parts do I need, and what kind of frame should I get?

    for $700, your custom bike isnt going to be all that great. unless you build everything from eastern parts, but everyone here will highly advise you against that. just buy a stock bike, and then keep the extra cash for parts when you need them.

    yeah, and for someone whose just starting, you dont need a crazy custom bike yet. Get a decent complete.
