Diamondback Orion VS Learsport BX2100

Hi ive been researching freestyle bmxs and i found out 2 good options either a diamondback 2005 orion and leave it stock 4 $590 (AU) or a https://www.deanwoods.com.au/store/prod520.htm and change the chain ring, handlebars, put on an sst amplifier braking system and maybe change the wheels and i might still come up under $590 so which do u think is the better option or suggest something else if u reckon their both no good cheers in advance oh and im 5,4" 50 kgs and 15 years old mainly for street and park and a little vert and dirt.

and dose the warranty cover street and park type riding, some warrantys consider that abuse, and abuse is ussually not covered in warrantys.

Well, neither of them are particularily good, but since I've never even heard of Learsport, I can only imagine that it's worse.

So, go for the Diamondback, I guess.

Running 2 brakes is over kill, unless your riding flat land.
