I need a new bike!!!

Hey hoes it going everyone i've been rideing a POS 15 year old huffy for 7 years and it finally broke. So its time to buy something new, i dont know much about the brands and stuff and i'm 185 lbs and 6 feet tall and the bike has to be tough enough to handel that weight. I was looking at the Matt Hoffman Condor pl1 ad the Rythem EL2 but i'm still open to sugestions, i use bmx on offroad jumps and stuff.

True. But he can choose which version like cwt said. Except i would not reccomend the street, since it has no brake mounts, and Calipers suck.

Why don't you check on ebay? As long as your careful about what your buying, you could get something for a lot less than a shop. Or for the same price as new, you could get part that are worth 2-3 times more.

It might be used, but I'm pretty sure your planning on riding you bike, not just looking at it.
