I have not ridden in around 2 and a half years, where I used to live every one rode street because it was a small town with no parks for miles, you rode what you could get for cheap and modify, people were always welding brackets to their bikes trying to reinforce the crappy frames, I never really had the best bikes but still better than most of the other people, and I could kill it on any bike. I'm kind of rusty now and now I live somewhere with good street and park spots and I'm just ready to do BMX again, but to do it the right way now. I don't have a ton of money but I'm looking for a medium price all Chromoly complete somewhere 500-700 USD I'm really looking into the 2017 SE Guadium it's sleek and just what I'm looking for, but I wanna be sure before I go dropping money on it.

I just checked offer up, springfield or. Theres 3 or 4 good bikes in the 250-350 range. $200 cash may buy them, even if you swapped frames later on.
I cant tell you what frame or bar ht youre gonna like.
Get one to bash on, see what you like and dont like, would suck to spend $700 and find out you want something different.
