My first flatland bike..plz help!

ok so im really new to flatland bmxing i started a month ago and so far i've been practicing on my friends Inertia bike which of course is a really nice flatland bike..so now my friend is moving and prolly wont see him anymore so i cant practice with his bike...i was wondering what kinda flatland bike i should get...my buddy is selling me a stolen Haro X2 for $60 brand new and was wondering if i could slap some pegs on it and get a free coaster wheel and start flatlanding? my friend recommended me DK bike for begginers but i dont have that kinda money right now so i was wondering if this is a good bike also i can get a Specialized and Diamondback stolen also for $45 each so what are ur suggestions?

EDIT: also is this a good bike? https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sgv/bik/296472895.html

buying a stolen bike = possible jail time (and bad karma!)

My suggestion: ditch the friend who steals bikes, get a job, save your pay, and buy a bike legitimately.

You ****ing suck and should die in a fire. Don't buy a stolen bike. Save your money and buy your own. Expat should lock this thread.

you are the scum of the earth. have you ever had anything stolen. when you find that its gone you feel like **** especially if it some kid who has just saved up big dollars for this bike. now this dropkick loser gets it off his mate for some stu[id price so you mate can feed his addiction. get a job and save and do what the rest of us do.

I agree with irimi--why are you here telling us about stolen bikes? What difference does it make how much they cost--they're stolen, dude.

This thread should be locked, and im so l33t should be banned.

Bike forums does not condone buying stolen property. Personally I believe that you should be in jail right beside the person that is actually stealing the bikes. If it weren't for people like you there would be a lot less people stealing bikes.

Anyway, like East Hill stated this thread should be locked.
