    I know of www.flatlandfuel.com for all flatland parts. I might also be able to suggest the Haro M5 or M6. You might be able to look on www.danscomp.com

    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.
