I have had a BMX bike for the last 6 years that I only used for transportation and a few small jumps every here and there. I am looking in to getting in to more serious street/park BMX and want a new bike. The two bikes that I am looking at are the MirraCo No.7, and the We The People Curse 20". My previous bike was a 2008 MirraCo Blend 1, which was rather heavy (30lbs). My budget is about $450 and less. The problem with WTP, is no store anywhere near me sells them, so I won't be able to try it out first. I am located in San Diego. Thanks. Link to both bikes bellow:

It's the lowest end wtp. It sucks. Everything is loosball. The mirraco is one of their nicest ones and has sealed bearings and is full chromoly. Wtp is a nicer company but in this matchup the mirraco wins.

I've had a 2008 mirraco blend 1 since 08 and used it for mainly just transportation. I'll go check out the no 7 later today.

Go for the mirraco... 07 is a nice complete to start with a few must up grades.. black op pedals suck and the seat.

For your budget you could possibly find a lightly used custom for the same or a little more. Might be worth it, although that Mirraco is a decent ride also.

Can't get the mirraco since they are sold out everywhere.

Looking at the WTP reason. It is mostly chromo and not to far out of my budget. Although it doesn't have brake.
