I'm getting back into BMX and I think I narrowed it down to one of these. Any thoughts which is better, and why? I want a freecoaster and 100% chromoly frame handlebars and fork. Any other suggestion around 500 are appreciated?

Kink , I’d probably choose a 500 dollar mongoose if I was looking for anything else

Have you tried local ads for used bikes? Might find a killer deal if you keep your eyes open

i rode a used Haro once. it was really nice that a friend hooked me up, but there's nothing like a brand new bike! they're all shiny and they still creak when youre breaking it in. i'd get the subrosa. they probably have better parts.

I have the Switch but found it to be pretty twitchy and easy to loop out. I’m 40 just getting back into riding and decided I wanted something a little more predictable but not super laid back either. I’ve got a Sunday Darkwave frame built up now and I feel a lot more comfortable on it. Longer CS and .25 less HT angle is a nice halfway point between tech and flow for me. I’ll be selling the Switch. Don’t get me wrong though. It’s a solid bike for $500 and I love the coaster. No issues with the bike at all. Just preference. So my $500 bike quickly turned into a $1350 custom.
