Im new to the bmx world and just need some help. I figure that i would probally be doing flatland. I dont have a bike yet and was wondering if anybody can help me figure out what bike to buy. I dont have a set budget but i would not like to spend a lot of money on a bike right away. Thanks.
If you aren't going overboard with grinding, almost any steel frame will last you a while. The aluminum pegs might get chewed up if you end up riding a lot of street, but pegs aren't horribly expensive.
The DK Signal at flatlandfuel is a killer bike for the price.
Doesn't really matter how much it weighs. A good freestyle bmx bike really is built for durability and quality over strength. Really good bikes may focus on weight issues, but it's not something to worry about if you aren't willing to spend $700.00+ on a bike.
Most likely that bike is between 32 and 34 pounds - or right around average for an entry level bike.
