I got a decent complete for $100 shipped to Australia from here.
Make sure you get Bones Reds bearings and use AFHIPHOP for 15% off orders over $75.

as long as you have good bearings the rest doesnt matter much at first.. except for maybe the deck...

I have nothing against pegs at all, I don’t think you’re dumb if you ride pegs, I don’t care about your pegs, they are just pegs! What I do hate is the fact that every person in BMX hops on this bandwagon of three pegs, and beanies, and weed, and hop-over grinds… It’s just sad that the pros who influence kids are more worried about looking cool than the kids themselves!

If youre getting that deck a good setup to go along with it would be

Trucks: Destructo, Thunder, Independent, Krux, Venture. Buy them in raw silver if you want to save some money.
Wheels: Bones STF or Bones 100's
Bearings: Bones Reds (best cheap bearings IMO)

1).Honestly the deck doesn't matter besides sizes I ride an 8
2).wheels don't matter besides size and hardnes
3).Bones reds are fine for bearings
4).I prefer Indys for trucks but thunder and jeux are great
5). Any grip will do.
I've been skating for almost 6 years.

some grip last longer than others and grip better too.
just stay with black grip tape as grip tape with painted designs grip a lot less.

my favorite grip tape was black magic from shorty's.
i'm not sure if they're still around.

this thread is painful to read

go here. you can see the deck from the top and side so you can find the shape you want.

only trucks worth looking at are independent and thunder.
only wheels worth getting are spitfire and bones.

As far as the trucks i wouldn't say Indy and Thunder are the only good ones out there. Destructo makes really nice trucks with lifetime guarantee. Krux is also a truck that grinds good and turns really well with the stock bushings. Ventures are decent too but dont turn the best.
For wheels Ricta is another brand worth looking into, thats all i skated before my pair of Bones and they were always good and lasted a while
