um.. 900. 400 will get you an entry level bike.. 900 will get you a really really nice bike.. and 1000+ will get you a super fantastic bike. But, if you are just trying out BMX, go with the 400 and upgrade the parts as needed.. but if you really love bmx and are surely going to ride for a few years + then certainly put the 900 into and dont feel an ounce of guilt. It's well worth it in the long run. Have a great time.

Entry level is $200.00 - you can get some VERY nice bikes in the $400-$600.00 range. A $500.00ish bike will get you good brand name components and pretty much a complete good package with a decent frame that will just leave you smaller things to upgrade one by one instead of really needing to buy everything new.

Give us some of the different bike options you are looking at in the $500.00 range.

that's how I see it.. if he has $900 to spend.. then yea. Most decent, a bit above entry level bikes are like 500 to 600 dollars..

the S&M bikes are very good frames, but I find the Dan's parts packages a bit suspect, esp. the cranks and hubs.
