This bike a full chromoly frame, so it is a lot stronger than the hi-ten tubes that are on the Verde. Also, it has Alienation rims, which are double walled, so they are strong. The Verde has single walled rims, so they aren't going to last long. The hubs are sealed, and they are going to last longer than the unsealed bearings on the Verde, and run alot smoother. The Kink is just a really good bike.



With a Dans code, you can get it quite cheap.

The Verde just has the toptube, downtube and headtube chromoly, the Liberty has full chromoly, so every tube is chromoly. The Verde doesn't have double walled rims front and back, the Liberty does. You can spend $340 on this bike, but you'll have to spend $200 replacing the parts that break. Also, an old member on here snapped a full chromoly Verde frame.

I'd say without, but you may think it's heavy, but it will feel light when you get it. I picked up my bike today, thought ti weighed noting, and it weighed 24lbs.

If you have $400, i would look into the 2011 Kink Whip.

You want something that has sealed everything, full chromoly frame, and an integrated headtube.

Don't buy a bike for the weight. The Liberty is a great bike, although i don't suggest it if you are just starting bmx; because of it not having brakes.

i already have been riding brakeless for probaly 6 months on my Mirraco

Alright, well if you want a new complete instead of upgrading parts on your MirraCo, then i would go with the Kink Liberty.
