What is the best BMX Jump/Freestyle Bike to buy?

What is the best BMX Jump/Freestyle bike? I have been out of BMX riding quite a few years, but I am trying to get back into it with my son. Just checking to see what company these days has the hottest/best BMX Bikes available?

Thanks,
sheepspen

Most of the old time BMX manufacturers still make good bikes, Redline, Mongoose, Haro etc. Take your pick...

The best - or the best for your money? How much do you have to spend?

I mean, I can part you up a killer bike if you have $1,500.00+ to spend. Far better than anything Haro, Redline, etc. put out.

But, if you are looking for a complete, around 2-300 bucks, then I would look at Haro or DK for freestyle bmx, and will politely let someone else recommend racing bikes as I have no clue.

look through a catolog and find bikes in you price range...then evaluate what they have, what you need, and what you want....for example 3pc cranks, cassete hubs, pegs, sealed wheels, geometry and price.......look for DK, Haro, and maybe Eastern......try...www.danscomp.com

He did state jump/freestyle, so I'm out. My only suggestion is to weigh up the idea of going with the nostalgiac brands for you (Redline/Haro/Mongoose) or the new stuff like DK or Felt. I've got the catalog here for GT and Felt (Australia spec, but should be the same) and the bikes look ok. But I race, not jump/freestyle.

Haro and Mongoose are making some good stuff....bikes with 3pc cranks, cassette hubs, and sealed wheels, micro drivetrains, and great prices....
