Good Bike?

Hey guys, I've been looking at BMX for a while now, and was interested in getting into it.
I'm about 6' tall and about 180-185 lbs. I was looking for a good beginner bike, preferably all chromo.

Here are some that I found around my area and was wondering whether it would be a good deal.

If you are feeling extra nice, maybe you could check out the entire page for me?

Thanks guys!

dont't buy the FIT for any price, FIT is ****. for a used bike, the Redline is overpriced. offer maybe $180 tops. this may be a little out of your price range, but it seems to be the only good bike on the page. https://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=218...&cat=408&lpid=

If you're calling Fit crap, you obviously don't know anything about bikes.

Not crap. But c'mon you gotta spend at least $530 to get CroMo . Their high end offerings are nice but they are selling entry and mid based on name recognition.
