Where to start?

I am wanting to get a bmx bike for dirt jumping and some small tricks. I haven't rode a bmx since I was 15(turn 30 next month). What is a good rather inexpensive bike to start on? Can I find a bike on ebay? If so what are some names to look for?

i guess you can look around for either a GT or Haro. I recommend these two comapnies since they are very reliable and well made. Most of them are lightweight too.

Oh and you should find a bike which runs back brakes if you want for dirtjumping. OR you can mod your bike if they have front and back brakes.

Every complete bike that you'll find for sale has rear brakes...
