Hi, I live in Ireland and I'd like to buy a bmx, mostly for street and parkt.

Budget-€450
Colour scheme-Black and Red, although any other colour would be fine.
Where to buy?-evanscycles.com or chainreactioncycles.com
Doesn't have to be 100% Chromoly, but I don't want to be full Hi-Ten Steel either.

The only good one I know of would be the United SU1/RN3, but they don't have those in sale.
And btw, Is it better to have a complete or a custom made BMX?

Complete if you're a beginner. I'd look into the Sunday spark bike, and as you progress and break parts start upgrading until you have a custom bike

So this? I love it in black, but since I'm a beginner, what would I upgrade first, and why this bike exactly?

Go for a Fit or WTP complete. Even if you are just a beginner their bikes are STAKED with good parts that will last. Look into the Benny or Mac completes if you want to Ride Street. The Van Homan completes if you want to ride Park & a bit of everything or the Inman completes if you want to ride dirt/trails. Anything WTP will suit you well for mostly street & park though. Welcome to BMX & Good luck smile

You won't even go to a skatepark and learn I know what you're like. You have terrible balance cycling

I'd go for fit,wtp,sunday or Fly. If I had to get a complete It'd probably be a fly just because they're my favorite company haha.

I don´t really know, because 2 months ago it was on sale, so there are two options:
1. It will finish in a few days.
2. It will finish when the bikes get out of stock.

I am sure that that bike is the best thing you can get for 298 euros.. SURE.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

TRUE. I have got it. For me, the frame is short, bars were short till the stem broke and i bought a cult salvation. Headset, Wheels, Seat, chain, cranks= shit.
Buy that Trust 2012, everybody is saying that wtp is a good brand. Enough said.

I would buy a fit bike for a beginner. I bought mine a few years ago and have slowly been customizing in to my own preference.

2012 wethepeople zodiac Get this. spend the other money on a helmet or whatever. this is such a good bike. better then any others listed yet. the only down is it is last years model. doesn't matter though.

I'm only going to be honest :

You're the last person I'd expect to buy a BMX. You're not into sports that much.

Before I started riding, I barely did any sports. Doesn't mean I can't ride.
