Looking for good street bike

I'm in the market for a new ride. I live in New York City, and want a bike that can rip in traffic, drag up and down the stairs of my 4th floor walk up, handle some abuse...

I'm not into tricks, although I can ride a wheelie forever.

I just need a fast street bike that handles well, and is well built.

What do you think of The Felt Manic? Any suggestions will be appreciated and test riden.

Thank you

Then why even get a BMX bike? If you just want something to cruise around then there is no point of a BMX bike as that would be your worst option.

to be honest bmx's are one of the worst forms of transport. they are designed to do trick and such. get a moderatly price hardtail and put semi-slick tyres on it and you will be much happier. and they wheeelie good to.
