I'm planning on getting my 1st BMX ever. It's going to be used for just riding on the street and doing some bunny hops and tail whips and what not.

As of right now, my budget is at $360
I was doing A LOT of research and I looked at a few bikes that got good reviews and have pretty good specs.

I'm 6 foot, 160 lbs, 16 years old.
I'm hoping to get a toptube of 20.5 or higher but some of my friends say that it doesn't matter so much.

So out of these bikes (and any others you know of that fits my price range), what do you think I should get?

2012 Kink Gap
2011 We the People Reason
2012 MirraCo Bronson
2012 United Recruit RN1
2011 or 2012 Stolen Stereo
2011 Stolen Heist
2012 Fit Aitken 1
2011 Verde Vex
2012 Kink Launch
2012 Fit BF 1
THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE ON THIS LIST.

I especially like the Stolen Stereo 2011 and 2012 and the Fit BF 1
AND any others you know of that's quality and in my price range!? Please help smile

Kink, Fit, We the people, amber. And also, you should save up some more money, you get what you pay for.

You get what you pay for; I know, but the thing is this is my first BMX bike and I don't wanna spend $500 on a bike I will use a few times and end up hanging it up in the garage. Although I'm pretty sure I'm going to keep with it, I think I should start off cheaper.

Good advice man thx smile

Dude I would go with an Amber. Just got my Savior and I love it! Without pegs and brake it weights 22.6lbs. My buddy just got the Dorado. His with both pegs and brake weights 25 even. These bikes are no joke!

Well you're price range isn't very high, but that's okay, It's your first bike. But you wanna make sure you have these in the bike:

Frame with some chromoly in it
All sealed bearings(Wheels, bottom bracket, headset)
Integrated headset
Forks with some chromoly
Atleast rear wheel is double-walled. If both are that's even better
Mid bottom bracket

If you have atleast those, then that bike is going to last you a long time before you have to replace anything. Only thing you might have to replace is tires and grips
