I Need A New Bike

Hey Guys. I'm new to the forum, and I have some questions...

I want a new bike that is fairly light weight, has a 3 piece crank, V-brake on the back, 3/8 front axle, 14mm rear axle, slim handlebars, tough chain and sprockets. I'd primarily use it for ramps/grinding stuff. What I DO NOT WANT is a very heavy flatland bike. I don't like flatland, and I don't want that type of bike.

1st Question...

What is the name for a bike that can be used for ramps/grinding stuff?

2nd Question...

Are there any bike models out there that have a most of the components I listed?

The easiest thing to do would be to build my own, but that is costly. I'm trying to find one that has what I want, but is "mass manufactured" if you would say, which would make it cheaper.

get some catalogs from BMX retailers/mail orders and do your research on bikes and equipment. thats the only advice i can give here. most good entry level bikes have all the things you want.
