HI, I have had my bike stolen. I had a fatboy specialized hemi which i did up to about $1500.
I am interested in street and flat landing (wrong bike to do it with but hey i didnt enjoy the dirt) I would like to start off with a bike less then $900 (Australian) and see where i go from there (as I have just lost a fair bit of cash) so please tell me a few bikes to look at.
Bikes i have seen are the
*redline tripple x (how much is that bike by the way????)
*Specialized 415 pro (a bit much $$$$)
*jerry bagley 4 star
*and some specialized tj velin which i can get for $850 rather then $1200.

What bike out of these should i go for? what other bikes are there out there that i should be looking at?
If you do send me a reply please be sure that the bikes you are refering me to are street/flat landing bikes rather then some dirt bikes which i have mentioned above.blue I would like to start off with a bike less then $900 (Australian) :confused:

I want to flatland good so i've used bmxtrix so much they will surely have an outrageous bandwidth bill for this month

I cant find what the "the bomb setup" is for flatland. I'm assuming light-ass frame, tight-ass brakes, big tires (BTW, maybe OT but what are "60%" tires?) and large pegs, what I dont know is what kind of hubs, rims and spoke #, and frame material/forks material is best. heard 3 piece pedals but what # tooth sprocket, what about pedalling backwards and the ratchet thing on the back hub/spindle (what is it called)

could someone explain quick release for wheels to me? what its intended uses are, its pros, cons, when not to use it, please?

lot of questions I know, but someone flex some knowledge to an optimistic start up, i'm completely out of the loop to bicycling trends right now

I ride flat and park and vert.
My bike is an old style Standard Lenghty with Profile SS 3-piece cranks,s+m slam bars( i like wide bars),seventies hubbed alex fat front wheel and normally a suntour freecoaster on the rear but im testing a odyssey freecoaster at the moment,redneck stem,modulevers,cobra seat ,evolver brake(overpriced+overhyped) on the front,dia-compe XCE (the best)on the rear.It weighs a ton and I love it and I've been riding 16 years.
No freestylers I know use quick release wheels that I know as it would interfere with the pegs.
