Pretty new to BMX riding, need help choosing bike, have choices!
I am just an ordinary rider, I don't participate in any club or ride 40 miles every morning
Just about 2-3 hours a day, even more if I'm up for it.
The bike I want will be used more on dirt surfaces, and a bit on road as well. Basically you can say, 50-70% dirt and 30-40% road. I will be preforming tricks with the bike but I am a rookie at this, unfortunately. But I will still be doing the basics, and other fun stuff with it also.
Currently my choices are:
Mongoose Brawler 2009:
I have read many reviews that say that it is a good strong dirt, but a bit too heavy, I think it weighs around 12.3 kg. (I have read that Mongoose isn't as 'good as it used to be' or something, and that they are sold in Wal-Mart?)
Eastern Traildigger, This is apparentley as said on the site a good beginner bike, but there are two beginner versions,
Number 1 really doesn't have my interest considering the color, and the second one seems a bit small for me, or I don't really know. By the way, what is the real difference between the two other than design?
The intermediate version of the Traildigger seemed nice aswell:
The above are my choices, but I am not sure which would be the best for a not-so beginner rider, mainly dirt/street, and is light at the same time.
Help would be appreciated.
