Shouldn't there be a stickied thread for BMX bikes in several different price ranges, so everyone doesnt look at the first couple threads, not see the one they want, and start one asking how much money they need to leech from their parents to get a bike they can jump with? Yes, I know that was a long sentence
There are similar threads in the mtn. biking section, and road.
Maybe a few ranges,
The initial post could be edited to include the suggestions from other members, so that first post would be all people needed to look at.
I have no idea about BMX bikes, so, no I won't start said thread.
I am interested in a bike in the 200-250 range, actually. This doesn't deserve a seperate topic, imo.
I don't want to beat up my Hardrock too much, and have to replace it with another mountain bike, so I think I'll get a BMX for jumping type of stuff, and use the MTB for trail/off-road/road riding.
I liked the Haro Backtrail X1 I saw in a bike shop (especially the price tag, eh
), but it didn't have a front brake
I want one I can do a bit of jumping with, and wheelies, endos, bunny hops, etc. Pegs would be nice, at least rear, to stand on (The concept of grinding kind of scares me...), as would front brakes.
Price range is realistically under $250-ish, although I can spend more if I must, can't say I see the point though...
I might not buy it before next spring, since I need to get my new computer built (Motherboard, CPU, and graphics card are left, I intend to use most of my income for a while on that). I make on average, $75-125 per paycheck, after tax and etc.
