Id have to say the Felt Sector XL 05 is the best value for money bike around for racing(yeah im biased as ive got one).As for the best rider well no contest, Warwick Stevenson.

For freestyle & racing there is no best.

It is as simple as that.

Every rider is different and wants different things from their bike. So, the best bikes are always custom built from the ground up.

Even within that, there is no best frame maker or components maker. So, you end up with a wild mix of various parts going together to make some of the best bikes on the market.

Then of course, there are the different versions of 'bmx'. Are we talking racing, street, dirt, vert, park, or flatland? Every one of those disciplines uses different bikes and has different requirements for those bikes.

Now, if you are just talking about complete bikes that are stock items available from stores that have all stock components and you specifiy a discipline of riding, you may get some results. But, then you still get stand out products within certain price points. For example, there are several good flatland bikes, but the DK Signal at under 300 bucks is one of the best bikes I have ever seen for the cash for a flatland specific bike. Not street or racing - but flatland. Not nearly the 'best' I have ever seen, but for the money, it's incredible.

Anyway - not meant as a rant, but just as an observation of the reality of bikes. There is tons of good stuff out there from a lot of companies and what people like is what makes the best.

If budget were no issue:
FLATLAND:
Ares Choise - Titanium frame
Odyssey Pro Flatland Forks
Odyssey Duralectric Rims laced to
Nankai Limited Edition Freecoaster
Quamen Hiro Handlebars
88 Products '12' Carbon Fiber Front Hub
Thompson Elite Seat Post
Primo Steroid Seat
Primo Wall 20x1.85 Tires
K-Mart Tubes ;)
Front Dia-Compe 990 Brake w/Camacura Low Boy adapters
Rear Odyssey Evolver Brake
Odyssey London Mod setup w/Slik Cables
BizHouse Dialyzer Stem
King Sealed Headset
RNC - Ti Lite Sprocket
RNC - Seatpost Clamp
Marwi Ti Spokes
Arestic Sirencer Pegs (4)
KHE Stimulatorz Pedals - Sealed Bearing
Odyssey Gyro GTX-R
ODI Longneck Grips
Profile Elite Flatland Cranks (155mm) w/Euro bb & Ti Spindle
KMC Chrome Chain
Haro Chain Tensioners
WTP Ti Bar Ends
88 Products Grip Ring Set
Odyssey Original Modulevers - Short

That would be the single best flatland bike in the world in my opinion - for me. Switch a few parts and components out for other riders and you likely won't hear many complaints from most pros.
Price: About $2700.00

are you serious about the kmart tubes?

Lasalles 11-30-04 05:22 PM

Well i wanted a GT Ultrabox because of the shape and look of it.But the TT was too long.Then i had planned to get a Redline Pro.That was until i saw the Felt Sector XL(top of the line Felt)in the shop and it was about $400 cheaper than the Redline.Thats how i decided on what bike was right for me.
Oh BTW im just starting out in Bmx.

bmxrdr88 11-30-04 08:31 PM

redline pros are like 475. i bought mine for 360.

Tubes are pretty much tubes - I've been using the same K-Mart tube on my back tire for over a year. Strangely, the Dans tube up front is about the same age. If you can tell the difference between the two, you are better than me. :)
