I am just starting to ride bmx and my mom said she will get me a new bike for Christmas. She wont spend too much money so im deciding between a 2015 kink gap and a 2015 colony emerge. What do u guys think i should go with. They are both the same price??

They both appear to be really close in quality. Personally, I would try to find a better used bike or older complete on craigslist or something

I bought my bike for 175 on Craigslist! Full chromoly and all that good stuff, good quality bike! I'd suggest looking there first. U can get a better quality used bike for less money than a lower quality new bike!

12/6/2014 11:16 PM

Tony Hamlin and Brian foster both kick ass I'd go with one of those 2

Kink Liberty. Full chromoly, fully sealed, double wall rims, a few aftermarket parts. All the good stuff.

No don't get the Martinez it's hi tensile steel frame and has single walled rims. Look for Full Chromoly frame, fully sealed hubs, double walled rims

From the 2 you listed, the Kink is the better option. A little more chromoly in the frame, and it has chromoly bars too.


The Kink Whip Hamlin bike with the 15% discount is just under your the price of the 2 bikes you originally listed. and that bike is pretty dialed. Full chromoly frame, chromoly fork, chromoly bars, and chromoly crank, fully sealed hubs, double wall rear rim, but only a single wall in the front. You have a double wall in the rear at least which is more important.

Well you can go cheap and slowly make it into a custom bike, or you could get a really nice stock bike and fix parts when they break.

its better to start off with something that will last alil bit though. instead of having to crank out new parts right away

True, but the less you spend, the more you can put into custom parts wink

I would just let it alone personally, maybe pick some pegs up if you wanna grind, maybe hub guards too.

Blowing money on stuff you don't need isn't really a good idea, plus if you buy something, then end up breaking something else later on, you could've used that money to fix it rather than waste it on something you didn't really need.

this this for days in all the ways

if it aint broke don't fix it. and if you feel like you gotta buy something. it better be because its a damn good deal and your gunna hold onto it until what your using breaks
