New! i have a few questions.

hey all. well i am sorta new to the world of BMX. i have had a few BMX wal-mart bikes and such. but nothin really serious. i never really learned and tricks. and with wal-mart bikes they are too heavy to really do anything. so i waz looking to get back into BMX. i waz doin a lil research and thought the KINK LAUNCH BIKE looked pretty nice for the price. i only have about $200 to drop as of right now. whats your guys pros/cons on this bike? good/bad?? it seems like good lil bike. nothing in the top dollar range but it seems like it would work for what i need it for. i wanna do some street riding. i am 5'9, 205 pounds. so i figure the 20' top tube would be good for me. and its on the light(er) side so i could handle it alot more. and plus my Doc said i need to loose some weight ( LOL! ) so i figured hey why not get back into BMX. its fun and something i did enjoy. i figure if i get a nice bike that i will enjoy it more. so what do you guys think?




THANKS,

Alex

I'd get the Kink Gap over the Launch. It fits the 200$ budget and it is better.

Personally, a smaller TT length is easier for me to throw around.
