GT bike and question.

I have a GT Performer ... i dont know what year it is id like to know too... maybe 2000? It has the type of rims that are black and plastic like a tripod

I also found this other GT that is pretty light ... its called a GT vertigo ... looks old .

i dont really like my GT PERFORMER .... its extremely heavy frame prevents me from doing stuff on it.
the Vertigo.. has very skinny tires... i dont really ride it too much only when i need to go fast.

I ride mostly dirt ... i want a light bike so i can bunny hop higher on street and have better control of.
Can u guys help me think of a light bike thats affordable and cheap?

Oh man, your bike doesn't totally suck, you suck. It takes years to get good, high bunnyhops. You can bunnyhop 3 feet plus on a 35-40 pound bike if you know how to move it right and are in good shape.

Most freestyle bikes are 32-35 pounds, yours is no different. You will want to look at www.danscomp.com, come up with a budget for how much you are willing to spend and think seriously about whether you want a LIGHT bike or a STRONG bike. Because, if you get a light bike and it breaks, don't ***** about it like a 10 year old. You have to give up strength for weight unless you switch to a much more expensive material than chromoly. Heck, under $300.00 it's tough to even find a bike that is 100% 4130 chromoly.

First look at your options, do some price checking and then ask about bikes in a more specific range and I am sure you will get some more helpful responses.
