New BMXer advice??

Hey guys I've been wanting to get into BMXing for a while. I've ridden my friends a few times and always had fun I need some advice what to look for. I've been looking at a 2013 Kink barrier asking 175 on craigslist. Would this be a good beginner bike? Is that a decent price for a kink barrier? I'm thinking about getting the bike and working my way up from there. Thanks a lot everyone!!

I can't help you with the bike you mentioned but good luck and have fun.

I was in a Toys R Us the otherday and saw some pretty nice 20" BMX's at very good prices.
But not knowing your age they may not be right for you.

don't waste your money on Toys r Us crap bikes. bmx riding is HARD on equipment and a bike from a toy store or department store is going to fall apart under you.

Kink Barrier looks like a solid bike- 100% chromoly frame, sealed bottom bracket. that should hold up fine for a while- Kink BMX ? Barrier

FYI, there are better bmx forums that are a lot more active. I would look into those for future reference.
