BMX Weight Limit?

Hello there! I am seeking some knowledge that I am sure some of you possess! I am going to buy a BMX bike, although due to my weight (I weigh 273lbs), I need advice on a particularly sturdy model. Does anybody have any good recommendations?

You would probably want to go with a custom built up bike which will cost you more, but will be far more durable. Try something like a Standard STA. The bikes from a few years back may be had on eBay for a decent price and while they weigh a few pounds more, they also are (in my opinion) are much more durable than the overly weight concious crap out today.
