I need some advice. I'm old guy (44) looking to get back into flatland.

I want the geometry of a new BMX bike but, I need front and rear brakes with a rotor.

I bought a FitbikeCo Mac 2 from a pawn shop and I like the feel of it. I put some caliper brakes on front. They were completely worthless.

So I bought a fork from eBay and a set of Odyssey EVO II brakes. However, the old fork won't accept the fat tires (2.4 inch)

There's only one set of forks on Dans' comp that come with 990 mount and they're expensive.

So, should I sell the Mac2 and get something else.

If so, what do you recommend?

Yeah, I'd love that too, but I was hoping to invest around 3 to 4 hundred dollars (which I've already surpassed) rather than over $1200.
