Hey I am new to bmx but ride MTB/do some dirt jumps pretty much every weekend, so i can hold my own on a bike and all. I want to get into bmx so i was wondering what bmx bike I should get. I feel like i want a custom, as completes sound really cheap. I have 300-400 dollars and ride skate parks/maybe do a couple dirt jumps/some street. I am 5 foot 8 and 110 pounds if that helps.. Thanks

500 is not enough for a custom. Maybe look at lower end fit or wethepeople.

You should be able to pick up a pretty nice bike for 400-500 range if you find a good deal on a discounted new old stock. May have to spend some time researching and digging to find one though. fyi

Craigslist, but you will have to weed through a lot of crap.

I would say the arcade or justice from wtp or any of the fits you could probably find for just over 500 not including the signature models, at dans-comp any way. Plus there is free shipping I think.

how about this one http://miami.craigslist.org/brw/bik/4334083168.html

or i might just by a complete on danscomp. Like a we the people curse or verde prism, something like that.

Look around on craigslist that'll be you best bet if you want a custom in that price range
