    Newb?

    Hey

    Ive recently been inspired by a certain game and a little excess weight from christmas () to save up for a nice BMX bike. I really don't know very much about BMXs (or bikes at all, I mean whats all this 100% CrMo Simon Tabron...3pc FSA X-Drive 175mm???) so I need some advise..

    My budget is around the 200 mark so what is a good bike(BMX)? Around my area the only known one is mongoose really... But I heard from reading through some of the posts here Mongoose is crap
    Also.. anyone want to explain in english what the specs mean?

    Thanx

    It would take pages upon pages to explain to you what that all means more specific. Order a cheap Haro on-line and if you stil like bmx by the time it turns to srap get some more money and get a fit pro or fit team.

    don't get a fit. those things are a waste of money. but yeah go with a cheaper complete bike (like a haro) and see if you like bmx before u spend a lot on one.

    Yeah, take a look at the new line of F3's from Haro, there really good bikes for a good price. I have a 2004 F3 Haro, and it's a dream. I got mine at 230 $, so I think their worth it. Hope this helps!

    Cool. Just had a look at some of the bikes there but it's a lil hard to choose. Which do you think is best for the streets?
