hey bro, i know your new so im not gonna freak out or anything, but you already made a thred on this. if your lost then hit the forum tab and hit the link that says "General bmx talk" then find your thread titled "is this a good deal". if you make multiple post people will get upset and you'll clog the site. also people may post helpfull stuff in one thread but you may not see it cuz you made more then one.

look at bikes in the area of 150 to 250 and offer them a low price

if they want 200 offer them 120
if they want 250 offer them 150
and so on then your still in your price range and dont have to get a shitty bike wink

before considering a used bike, consider the amount of money your gonna have to put into it just to fix it up. I have yet to come across a used bike that didn't require heavy $$$ to fix up. you should check out a complete mirraco or united. they both make great starter bikes that will handle some serious abuse for under 350

If you can get the Sunday! for around $200, that'd be pretty awesome.

And do yourself a favor when you start buying parts, stick to black whenever you can, don't buy ridiculous colors, and limited edition Odyssey parts tend to go out of stock fairly quick, so don't plan on matching anything to it after 2 or 3 months.
