I am in a dilemma

I am in a dilemma, because recently started saving up for a new bike, but the thing is, I don't really know which direction should I go. I have been cycling for a couple of years now, and I've been wheeling for 2. I am really into wheeling and doing tricks and I really like SE bikes, street trials, freeride bikes and BMX and I don't know which one to choose. The thing is I live in Hungary and Hungary's flattest region, so I don't really have mountains or hills near me,(I live in a small city/big town) but we do have a small skate park and plenty of backroads. So if anyone has a opinion or a suggestion thanks in advance.

Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean by 'wheeling'.

SE Bikes make great BMX, and some 'big wheel' 26" and fat tire BMX crosses that are kind of interesting. Buy a bike to do the riding you want. If that changes, then get another bike.

If you are older. SE 26/29 are the bike boom bike to get. Wheelie bikes. If you are younger (or still wild/conditioned), get a 20' new school bmx. You can ride the park and still do most flatland.

Within reason, you can do anything on any bike, but since you like tricks and wheelies, BMX would probably be the direction to focus on. Maybe a 24" BMX cruiser -- they are nimble enough for tricks, but the the bigger wheels will allow you to travel beyond the skatepark. 26" and 29" cruisers are better for distance, but not as well-suited for tricks beyond wheelies, manuals, and front endos.
