Well I deffinitly need lightweight the problem is no store around here sells that much and I need to feel out a bike before I buy it.

BTW which bikes are you looking at in those companies and how much do they cost?

fit has some nice completes for some good prices. stolen does to. just save up and get like about 5 or 6 hundred bucks and buy the stolen heater. that bike is pretty much hooked up and you really dont have to make a single upgrade to it unless you dont want to ride gyro. but that bike is worth it for the money

i dont know if you want a complete bike or just a frame but i have found wethepeople to have really cheap completes. I really have liked mine so far.

Oh and a gyro is the thing below the bars that lets you spin the bars with out getting the cable tangeled up. I personnaly perfer a staight cable.smile

and if your a weight freek straight is lighter then gyro. gyro is only good if your going to be doing a lot of tailwhips or barspins. but there is no reason to do more then 1 tailwhip in a run, so straight is always good to use

Wethepeople bikes look pretty nice but theres no dealer near me and I need to ride the bike before I can buy it i've also been thinking about the straight cable that sounds like a good idea.

BTW, Hows the 4 Seasons bike it looks sick, and whats the average price for it?

Check out Dan's Comp for prices, or pick up a RideBMX mag. Yopu'll find prices in there.

If you are just starting out, I don't suggest a 4 Seasons. It's a hella nice bike, but maybe you want to go for something like the WTP Addict. Nothing too expensive, but enough good parts that it's worth the cash you lay down for. That's what I plan on buying this spring.

The 4 Seasons is $574.99 and the Beyond is $484.99, and the prices are most likely going to be higher at local bike shops. pinch

If you don't need a gyro or a front brake, getting the Fivestar intro will be a waste for you. The good thing about the MirraCo line is Trek is their ditributor. Every bike shop in suburbia carries Trek.

Don't get a fit am. once you start getting decent i guarantee you will start breaking or bending parts like crazy. i dont think anything is sealed on it and the frame isnt even full chromoly. dont get that bike its not worth it. if i were you i would spend a little more money and try to get something like stolen score or heater.

get whatever you want, if your a beginner then fine just get that, it doesnt look to bad its not the best of fit completes. but its decent enough for a beginner to start using. and when you get a lot better or better you can always go and build up a custom bike
