Nah it's not that heavy. A lot of people are riding heavier bikes now. I still like my bike to be light but 25-27 is okay too a lot of doing tricks is technique and how you do them and whatnot.

No dont. a 72.5 head angle would be treacherous. Try a bike from danscomp or veinbmx and come back here and ask which to get then.

Well for one its not going to steer in a quick way at all, making carving to do any spin difficult! anywhere from 74.5 and up is just right! and 74 can work just fine also!

OK, i dont like this because you said is it light enough for a beginner. not a good attitude. be ready to lift alot of weight in bmx. not because your a girl, because you sound like your depending on the bike to be light, and not yourself to be strong. no onto the bike, if you have ALOT of money, you could go to albes.com and buy all the parts of a bike. when in your cart put CUSTOM or something(its on the website) in the code thing, and you get like 20% off. i would suggest a kink curb ifyou dont have money, its 219.95 from dans.

When you buy a complete you want to look for these things!

74.5 to 75.5 Degree Head Tube Angle
Depending on your height a Top Tube between 20.5" & 21" in Length
69 to 71 Degree Seat Tube Angle
Stand Over Height between 8.25" & 9" in Height
11.5" to 11.8" Bottom Bracket Height
13" to 13.75" Chain Stay Length
Integrated Head Tube, Mid or Spanish Bottom Bracket, Heat Treated Drop Outs
Full Chromoly Frame, Fork & Handle Bars
Fully Sealed Bearings (Headset, Bottom Bracket, Hubs)
Double Walled Rims
High Pressure Tyres
3 Piece Cranks (Possibly 2 Piece if you spend enough money!)
Pivotal Seat & Post

I think that's pretty much it, if I've missed anything guys please add to my list!
