I am looking to get my son a new bike. He is paying for most of it and I want to make sure he gets themost of his money. Can someone tell me which of the bikes would be best or if there is another in the $200.00-$250.00 range that may be better. Thank in advance for your help.

The kink frame is steel rather than chromoly. Is that not really a big diffrence. It will only be a 70 lb kid riding it. What am I looking at on the kink that makes it the better bike. Yes I am a noob.

Theres another thread about the mode 900, but, that really does seem to be the best bang for your buck in that price range. I would have started on that had I been smarter.

Refs: Tito24, RiverSideRider, Stussy, Nettyspaghetti, Daniel24, Freddydapice, BrokenBMX, SuperstarDK, HardBMX_Tim. There's more, but I'm too lazy to look them up, haha.
