Beginning BMX Rider :)

Hi everybody im new to this forum and i have a few questions. Dont blame me if i dont know everything because im a newb. I just ride bikes for fun but now im thinking going into bmxing. I'm thirteen years old and I weigh about 120 pounds. Im not looking for a dirt kind but more of a freestyle kind also a bike that could last me few years so i could have time to earn more money for a other biek in case i mess it up. So far my choices for a new bike are Trek Vert 2, Dk eight pack, or a GT 2004 Compe or Performer or Fly.

Out of those three bikes which do you perfer?

I think that i prefer teh Vert 2 or the DK because im not made of money.

Thanks for all your replies.

I had a friend that rode an 8 pack for something like 5 years.....after 3 years he broke the seat stays and had them welded back together and kept on riding it....

thats f'n hardcore...he did mod the bike a bit but he was around your size....I would go ahead and suggest that bike as well
