Hey there.

So you are looking for a trail/jump BMX bike?

What dollar amount do you want to spend?

I'm actually looking for a Freestyle and just put a down payment on the 'wethepeople' just trying to get a feel for whether or not it was a good purchase as I know nothing about how to judge a BMX for tricks as I'm generally a fixie commuter, it felt solid thought and looked sleek, and rode well, light enough and fit me well I'm thinking as I'm 5' 7", just trying to get some feedback I guess on the purchase..

What is the Haro made of? The WTP is no good because it has almost zero ChroMO

im a huge fan of MirraCo. i own a MirraCo Blink and its built of full ChroMO and the rims are reinforced made by Odessy . the pedals and saddle are all made by Black Label and are plastic, the bike is extreamly light and very very tough. im 6'4" 215 lbs and i can do just about anything i want to on it with out a problem. i paid bout 450 bucks its not entry level, its pro level but very much worth it bro.
