    New bike, And new brands

    i bought a $200.00 Dk fury bike, from walmart, ( I know ) its weigths close to nothing, and is a great bike, but i weigth 250 and am 6.3 and this bike for how awesome for tricks and just screwing around with is, i just cant do wheelies for that long cause it is so short. What size of a frame should i buy if i just want a longer bike? or what bike should a rider like me buy? I go to the skate park everyday, i love dropping into bowls getting lots of air and just screwin around.

    You bought a Fury, which is made of alum. and built for racing, with a lot of hi-ten parts, and are that size, taking it to a skatepark? I'd be surprised if that thing lasted two months.

    Sell your DK Fury for $150. Get the 2 Hip 100% chromoly steel-framed Soul off the online clearance shelf for $100. Then, start building and customizing your own BMX. Just do it gradually until this summer. After about three or four hundred more bucks, and time, you'll be shredding and styling 4 real.

    You'll be lucky to get $150 for a used bike that is $200 new. A new fully custom bike costing about $1,000 will resell used for maybe $350 if you are lucky.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    I was so infuriated when DK started to sell at Walmart. I have a legit DK Professional race frame, and the new Fury has the exact same paint job.

    You need to be in constant Proximity of someone with a video camera, so we can all watch as the headtube snaps off

    You bought a bike from WalMart. Obviously it's going to fall apart.

    Honestly, get that out of your head now. Don't even consider the weight, you'll get used to it. And as you upgrade to better parts and lighter parts, it'll begin to weigh less. When I first got mine, it weighed like 35 lbs. Nothing nowadays weighs that much stock.
