So where can you find it?

Keeg, what kind of riding are you planning on doing? Do you have any local sources for used bikes?

Two divergent course, racing and parks. One requires a light bike, one requires a stiff and strong bike. On a budget, this is a big compromise. Where's Beerman & Snazz when you need them?

again?! i do the same type of riding, except usually i have seperate bikes. but you don't need a special bike if your starting to race. a heavier bike may actually help out. just start checking out some dk's. thats almost what i always suggest. but they are getting better.

Guess we better hope Snazzy shows up soon. Did someone use "Redline" and "Freestyle" in the same sentence?
