look for a bike with chromolly everything, and all sealed bearings then come back to us with a couple of choices. this way you learn on your own and then we help you narrow it down.

yes it will be more expensive but it will be stronger, it will last longer, and it will be lighter. my friend used to have a hi tensile steel frame and it was all dented and it didnt last very long

well if you only plan on riding your bike just to get around, and maybe just bunny hops and really simple stuff, then get a cheap bike. but if you plan on saying in it and progressing, then youll be happy to have a chromoly frame. also if you want to do grinds, chromoly is the way to go

If your looking for light weight get a raleigh bunner chaos they are amazing easy for ramp stunts great for flat riders also its cheap £150 .

I'v got 1 and they are fab.
