Looking for opinions
I’m looking for a used BMX for not a lot of money.
I found a Premium Solo and I found a Sabrosa Salvador. But I also found a Custom bike that has a Volume frame. I’m mainly looking for opinions on the Premium vs. the Sabrosa.
Any input would be appreciated

What’s your price range? Both those bikes have a lot of hi-tensile steel (not desired) and single walled rims. I would see if you can find a used bike that’s full chromoly within your budget. But to answer your question...

Both companies are fairly reputable and known to produce decent bikes. They are fairly similar when it comes to build quality (not full chromo, sealed bearings all around, 8-spline cranks, single walled rims, hi-tensile steel bars) but the Solo has only a chromo down tube while the Salvador has a chromo top tube, down tube and wishbone so it should be a bit stronger/more durable.

They differ more when it comes to geometry. What top tube length is the Solo your looking at? It’s available in 20, 20.5 and 21. The Salvador (non-XL) is only available in 20.5. Also the Solo has a (based on today’s standard) long chain stay (13.75) while the Salvador’s is fairly average (13.5).

I would choose between the two based solely on which bike fits you better. What’s your height and age? What type of riding do you do? The answers to these questions would best help decide which bike would be a better pick for you. But bro you’re just outside of Chicago! If you could swing it, you can probably find a bunch of nice used full chromoly bikes on OfferUp for $250-$300 all day!

He's looking at used bikes, if they were new bikes I would agree but a brand new Whip would likely cost much more than the used ones he found.

Out of those 2 used ones, they're very similar but the Salvador has a bit more chromoly in the frame, so I would pick that.

List the specs on the custom you found and a price, it might be better to get that
