Hey guys, i'm currently deciding which bike to get, it's going to be my first bike and my budget is pretty tight, it's 450-500nzd so about 356-400usd. I'm 14 and currently trying to find a job and selling my old stuff so I really dont want to go over my budget.

Currently i've been looking at the 2012 Subrosa Tiro, 2012 Stolen Stereo and the 2012 Cult cc00, since i live in New Zealand I cant order from Vein or Danscomp as the Shipping prices would be ridiculous(unless free shipping?), the only site i can choose from is ChainReactiion as shipping is free for orders over 400nzd.

Im leaning towards the Cult cc00 as it is fully sealed. I am also purchasing 4 pegs and a g3 gyro setup which totals to $500.85 with the Cult cc00, would this be a good choice? I probably will upgrade parts as i progress and places that sell BMXs here are more expensive than buying from CRC

last time i went on danscomp its 300(not sure if usd or nzd) to ship a complete so i guess not, CRC is free on orders over 400nzd so its a win for me i guess

edit: imma try a aus site, feel so dumb not thinking of this in the first place.

Also been thinking I dare say it won't be free international shipping cause that's wasting a lot of money like $200 to ship a complete

I'm so blowing up this thread.

If your budgets tight try looking for a 2nd custom/complete. I'm sure NZ has an equiverlant of gum tree or something. Or eBay

get a bike of bmx.co.nz matt is real great and always looks after me, not that i really buy from them anymore cause i just buy off dans, albes etc now, beware, if your order+shipping is over 400 nzd prepare to be charged gst(15%) when it hits customs, sometimes you get lucky but sometimes you dont ha.

If the second hand ones are ads either pm me or post them in the main forum and we could give you a good idea if its worth the money or not
