Street / DJ bikes for under $1500

I was lookin around for a street/dj hardtail to buy...yet alot of these bikes were $1500-2000, and i didn't want some bike that would have bent rims by the end of the first ride. Do you know any street bikes for under $1500 that dont have **** components on them? I have my eye on a 05 Brodie Heathen, but thats about it..

The word pwn, (past tense: "pwned" or "pwnt") as used by the Internet gaming subculture, means to beat or dominate an opponent. While it probably originated as a typing error of the word "own", it is now used intentionally by many members of the subculture. The term has become so ubiquitous in Internet circles that it is often used outside of gaming contexts; for example, "he just got pwned in that debate" or "the hunters pwned that bear."

1337 is "leet" which was spawned from the quake/team fortress days. it means "elite". pwn3d is the h4x0r way of spelling pwned, which was popularized by CS (Counter-Strike) players who typed "owned" but accidentally wrote "pwned" whenever they made a headshot (a shot to the head... duh) because of their need to type quickly in order to move and not get shot themselves.

refer to this article by Microsoft for a crash course on "h4x0r" a.k.a leetspeak or "13375p34k"

Haxor is not important to know about here, so don't worry. It has nothing to do with bikes, so you're not in violation of anything.
