Need a little help choosing new bike

Hows it goin. Im new to this forum but not exactly new to bmx. I just sold my Hoffman Dirt Merchant 2 and im lookin to get a new bike. im not sure whether to get just the frame and build it up or get a complete bike. If anybody has any suggestions that would be awesome. im lookin to spend about $700.

thanks,
Chris

Specialized is pretty good. I've ridden last year and this year's Fuse frames around and they feel alright. I especially like the cable routing on this year's.

No, I can't say that I have. The only Hoffman product I've ever used is the D-Cup lower gyro plate (which, coincidentally, is the only good lower plate I've ever ridden).

i like my Dirt Merchant, but i had to sell it to get the last parts i needed for my XC bike. Now that i have a job i can get a new bike. I've looked at S&M, Standard, waiting on the new HB Line-up, and i've looked at fit bike. my friend has a fit but everythime i see the bike the headset is always really loose and it looks like its falling apart so ive kinda strayed away from them, but i do like the one you posted

You could always simply get a new headset.
