PostSubject: A good bmx bike for a begginer?   Sun Mar 22, 2009 2:38 pm

I wanted to know what would be a good bmx freestyle bike for me to get. I was thinking of getting a haro counter part lite it lookslike a good bike but haro doesnt seem like a good brand.I have a GT bmx bike for dirt but its too heavy to do tricks in.I asked in yahoo answers and they told me to check this site becouse they are tons of nice people that would like to help.Thanks

Ok first off i would like to say hello. Then second im going to say dont go with the haro because they are not worth the price you pay for them. Also if you could give me a price range of what you can spend we can go from there and find you a good begginer bike.

Oh ok you can actually get a very good bike for about 350$ http://www.danscomp.com/101668.php?cat=BIKES this has chromoly parts and sealed bearings so it makes it a very good bike for only 350$

this could also do it aswell http://www.danscomp.com/101414.php?cat=BIKES

it is usually a good idea to buy something good but not go all out and spend the 500$ because its always nice to have money left over for if something breaks like your pedals wear down or grips rip or anything along those lines or just if you want to upgrade some parts.

These are only my opinions though im just suggesting some bikes and ideas but there should be some more members on later to give you some suggestions aswell.

In the meantime take a look around here and get a look at bikes you have in mind and tell us what your looking at and we will tell you if there is anything better or if its good or not. http://www.danscomp.com/index.php

Feel free to ask as many questions as you like. thats right thats right haha i love these pokemon smilies.

Contradictary to what Admin is saying, I would recommend the FIt TRL 1.
Or if you want something lighter and you don't need brakes the FIT STR 1.

Both are nice bikes, with sealed bearings, sealed rear cassettes, are made of nice FIT parts, and are light. Also remember, if you want even nicer than these, they offer the TRL and STR 1,2,and 3. They only get better as the numbers increase.

Yeah the addict is better than the whip but im not to sure about the salt parts on it bmxchris is the wethepeople expert and he supports them so hopefully he will post in here soon. The addict is better though but i have never heard of a company called salt so im a little iffy.

Get the Addict if at all possible. My friend has it, and it is pretty sweet. I don't know why everyone says Salt parts are so bad. I traded my friend for his old Salt stem and its been nice and sturdy for the past 3 months. Nothing has broken on the WTP Addict in the 8 months he's had it so, Salt can't be that bad of a brand.

Do you have any reasoning behind your statement? This time try to type coherently so we can all understand you.

Yes, why do you think Salt parts suck? I have a salt stem and my friend is still using mostly Salt parts on his WTP Addict, and they're fine.
