Hi, I'm just starting up in BMX since I want to take a break from mountain biking and try something different. I'm quite an obvious newby . I'm using some random haro that was my bro's, think its a Z18 or something. I'm 6'3'' and about 175lb. and working with a budget of about £450, any full bike builds or frames/tires and size of them I need would be well received, happy to build the bike if it works out cheaper and still better the a pre build, thank

A custom will surely cost more than £450 ($700 USD). Check out the WTP Trust.

thanks, yer I wasn't sure about custom build in BMX, in mountain bikes I normally save a fair bit by buying the standard frame/tyres then specing round it to get a better build for less, but I don't mind either way

I've tried that with bmx. It's almost impossible to get under $900 US with a mix of moderate to cheap parts. Wethepeople is one of the top brands in bmx and the Trust is fully chromoly (frame, fork, bars, and cranks). Has sealed bearings/hubs. And double-walled rims.

my buddy who rides with me is 6'4" and he rides my Stolen Heist, i told him he should be on a 22" or maybe even a 24", he can spin quick as hell tho because he just throws that bike around like it's a toy.
