Alright so I need a backup bike. I don't really want to spend 1200 bucks on another cus. setup at the moment.

I was thinking I'd just get a complete or something. I was eyeing the United SU2/3, seeing as the SU3 doesn't have the mothership frame, but the SU2 is still full cromo, and has some pretty decent parts stock. I would probably get the SU2 and put a couple hundred bucks worth of other stuff as some of the stuff on the bike is less-than-legit and get that thing dialed. Any ideas/critique?

I wouldn't waste money on a backup bike. If you anticipate something breaking have a few spare parts set aside.
If you insist on having a completely extra bike just buy something decent on Craigslist for cheap. But I wouldn't spend more than $150

^agreed, CL is the best place for picking up a decent bike really cheap

Eh, I was kind of thinking the same. I looked through CL, nothing really caught my eye. I'm still just trying see if the United complete was legit or not. Only saw them at dans, it'll be like only 500 bucks w/ discount.

just replace stuff as needed? you can only ride one bike at a time.

Think of it as a main bike with me selling my custom then. Jeez -___- I definitely get what you guys are saying about just buying replacement stuff as needed with my custom, or finding a cheapy on CL - but I was still trying to see if the United was legit or not for "future references"...

Having two bikes is stupid. Just spend money to make your current ride more dialed.

I think it's another case of someone not owning a bike but thinking it would be "cooler" to say they have a custom bmx and just need a backup bike grin

Its not stupid. He just enjoys building bikes. I had 9-10 complete customs until last spring. I enjoy building a bike as.much as I.enjoy riding them, possibly more
currently I have 3 customs and 1 in progress. A street bike a race bike a flat bike and a flat/street hybrid
The key is, none of them are backups, they all have a specific purpose.
I just think having a backup is silly. Its cheaper to keep a stockpile of extra parts than to have a whole extra bike.

I mean I love building bikes as well, but I don't want to spend 1200 bucks out every time I want to scratch the itch. So that's why I was going to go with United and spend some extra on it dialing it in. But I mean shit, I'm going to ride it. It's not like I'm just going to keep it in the corner until my custom breaks down and I'm waiting for parts or whatever.

Personally I just buy bikes I like on Craigslist. There's always 2-3 good parts on every bike. Then I part the rest and reuse the money to buy another bike and keep repeating that process until I have a bike I like. I usually spend less than $150 after all is said and done. My latest custom is the first time I've actually bought a new frame, and I still ended up paying less than $500 for everything.

The part I like best is breaking down a "beater" $100 bike and looking through the rubble to.find the jewel of the build. Then I rebuild it with all the stuff I don't wantto keep for myself and sell what is a legit ride for dirt cheap or give it away to.someone that needs it

@Genesis - I like your thinking. That's a legit plan. Surprisingly, I don't even come across bikes with decent parts on them often, I've been looking for a while. And the ones that I do see people are asking a shitload more than the bike is worth. Idk I just thought getting the united and extra shit to get it dialed in would be a good idea.

Why are you kids always trying to start shit. Dude - Frame: $300+ - Fork: $120 - Bars: $75 - Cranks: $150-200+. That's already like almost 700 bucks without the rims/hubs and other necessities. Come on, bro. 1200 was round-about anyways. Yeah, you could spend way less than that on a complete if you go Genesis' route.

@Jake - Pretty nice set up man, I'll think about it.
