Earlier this year I bought a brand new chase edge. I had started going to the track with my friends who race and I thought it was cool so I bought a race bike so it wasn't my first bike. Pretty sure I want to sell it and get a park bike instead because i haven't been to the track in a while and want a good bike for my daily street riding. I'm about 5 ft 7 but expect to grow a little. I paid $450 6 months ago for my chase, so hopefully i can get about $350-$400 for it. What is your recommendation for a good park bike around $350? Also should i buy new or used? Also, forgot to mention it was a pro xl.

I don't know anything about that bike, but if it retails for $450 then I wouldn't expect more than $250 for it. There's not many quality bikes in the $250 range, though I believe mongoose makes a sealed and full chromo bike for around that.

I bought it for $450 on sale. The new 2016's retail for $570 right now and i think that is what the 2015's were originally. I am willing to buy used if needed but I'd prefer a new bike. How much do you think my bike is worth? Im not buying a mongoose lmao.

If it's in good condition, 50% of its retail value is a good place to start. Seriously, get the mongoose.

This. And don't be turned away strictly by the name, as they seem to be stepping their game up just like everyone else. The Chamber is on sale on their site too right now for half off, so that's right in the price range you'll sell yours for, and you may end up with some cash in your pocket in the end. Full chromo f/f and decent parts too. Just sucks they don't have actual frame specs listed
