the bike i was hoping to get at walmart was a good and light bmx bike and its not in the store now, i am so self conscious about my bike frame, its ugly and back when i got this bike was 4 years ago i was 14 i did not know anything about bmx, i just wanted a bike to ride and use for transportation and now i totally regret it, but i am a good bmx flatland rider and i want to show the world my skills via youtube but i currently have no money no job, its hard because i love this sport and my bike is a good 31 pounds at the most but ive gotten used to it.

my friends tell me its heavy but not to me, i can bunny hop pretty high, I have the Steamroller Dialed in pretty sick, i guess im less fortunate then most people that actually have pro bikes, i was thinking about just searching on ebay or something for just a simple bike frame for under 100 bucks with a standard headset the ones where the fork is threaded, but i cannot find one, what should i do? wait like 5 years till i can get enough money to get a pro bike or what?, but heres my piece of sh** Photo

I feel ya man. try craigslist and just search flatland bmx. or if you look on ebay search the same thing. but anyway run it by us first before you buy it. if its good we will tell you. not many of us flatland but we know our parts.

31 pounds is not that heavy but is compared to most modern bikes. You could buy a new frame, but the rest of your bike would still be the same and you wouldn't be able to reap the benefits of the new frame. I would just try to find a way to make extra money and get a new/used bike it will be a huge difference from you bike right now.

I'm on budget and poor too. Well actually, my parents don't really let me keep money, so whatever I get is just pure luck or if I ask once every long while. You just gotta go for it, but look at feedback and reviews and references to see if the person, seller, vender, etc. is legit.

Ebay is all ran through paypal so you oughta be fine. Walmart.com should also have the bike you were lookin at. Your local walmart should be able to order one for you.
