I think you could find some good bmx bikes that ride street and dirt on www.ebay.com.

Screw ebay. Take that $400 to your LBS and take a look at their BMX inventory. See what they recommend and take a lot of test rides. I personally ride a bike that I built myself with parts I bought individually, but you can get a decent stock bike with that much that will last you a while.

I have ridden a Haro Backtrail X3 and it is a solid ride with good components. Felt good on the trails, but it is a bit heavy. I can't vouch for the free agent, but like I said take it for a spin at your local shop.

Good luck, and be sure to let us know what you decide on. Ride on!

unless your getting a higher model free agent don't buy one. you can always get bmx bikes cheaper online. just do a google or yahoo search. or pick up a bmx mag and look at advertisements.
