Update:
I can't really afford a bike that's 11,11kgs but I can afford the one that is 11,43. Should I get the one that's 11,43 or just save for the other one? Is there a big difference with the weight? Is it gonna affect me somehow?

Hello guys, this is 7/11 and you can say I was wondering if you could help me to choose my ideal weight for a BMX? I weight around 120-125 lbs and right now I'm looking to buy a BMX that weights 24,5/25,2 lbs would that work for me or would it be too heavy?
I'm also interested in doing tricks and jumps with the BMX, as it's going to be a Haro Freestyle Boulevard.
Someone please help me. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure the bikes weight is in lbs not kilos. So it would be a pretty average weight

Oh yeah I'm sorry I just use kilos in my everyday life but I meant to say lbs haha. With a pretty average weight you mean it's balanced/alright?

Add weight to your bike so you build muscle , Bmx is not supposed to be easy

Weight doesn't matter. Your bike control does.

Think of it this way. My buddy who just began riding weighs more than me. He's around, maybe, 150-160 LBS. He's 16, and so am I, but I'm 105 LBS. I can hop the small box (around 1.5 FT. high) no problem, but he's just beginning to learn hopping up sidewalk curbs. My bike is around 23.5 LBS, his is 28-ish. I got on his bike for a bit and still could hop the small box. You just need to practice and get a feel for your setup.

Don't worry about bike weight, just practice. All beginners start at the beginning. You got it!

Also, I'm thinking of getting one of these two bikes:
Haro Downtown DLX 20'' 2017 Freestyle BMX or Haro Boulevard 20'' 2017 Freestyle BMX Fiets
They're both new as you see and here are the specifications:

https://www.harobikes.com/bmx/bikes/2017-freestyle/downtown-dlx-2017
Which one is better / you guys recommend me to get?

Leaning towards the Boulevard seeing that the Downtown comes in like a 19" and 20.3" toptube and it might be too cramped. Bikes should be 30+ lbs because that guarantees itll have all the fun stuff like brakes and 4 pegs

Thanks, I'm probably getting the Boulevard but then I can't afford pegs for like one or two months. Should I stick to that or just buy the Downtown that comes with pegs? Thanks.

Thank you guys so much, I appreciate it. But, thing is, I'm not really interested in putting A LOT OF WEIGHT to do jumps, you know? I mean I can put some for a few but not for every stunt/trick. Is the Boulevard gonna work for me?

Boulevard, and Odyssey MPEGS are 15 for a set on Dan's. Surely you can scrounge 15. And a few extra for GLAND guards.

It's still light compared to what us older riders grew up with, it'll be fine
