Why would you take a bike that is meant for trails and offroading, and ride it on the street? Thats just dumb. That BMX bike is actually pretty good for the money. So do it.

Hey there Ross!

It all depends upon what you're doing with the bike. Are you freestyling? ...Are you actually jumping dirt mounds? Exactly what type of riding do you intend to do?

Until you further explain, most people will just go with the BMX in this forum. We're just stuck in the BMX mode here. However, most anywhere within these forums, if you explain what type of riding you intend to do on what type of surfaces, somebody will be able to better assist you.

I could say go with the DMR Reptoid, but since I have a DMR Transition, it would be a bit biased.

For street and DJ, you really wouldn't want the gears. Easier to learn the technique on a 20".
