I have 40-100 to spend on a bmx, i don't mind what brakes it has or whether it has trick nuts or not. I just want to know of any good bikes if you have any ideas or whether im wasting my time looking. Cheers.

You're on BF.Net, and are thus, by definition, wasting your time. :-)

Just kidding. I don't know about foreign currencies, or what bikes are available to y'all, so I really don't know.

You are not going to get a bike for 100 really. The only ones I can find are on this website: http://www.extreme-direct.co.uk/bmx/bmx-bikes/

Your best bet is Ebay

That's roughly $80-200 USD.

Edit: I was just thinking that eightdip would be good for answering this...

What part of England are you in, bollada89?

You won"t get much at that price. And converting it to $US means nothing, since prices in the UK really bite. Time to start washing cars or knockin' over servos.
