I'd rather get stabbed in the penis than go on BMX-forum again. www.bikeguide.org/forums is OK, as is www.streetphire.co.uk Don't go on Streetphire expecting to get that many serious answers...

Cheap BMXs feel like shit. When I got my first one, I spent just over £200 and it was pretty nice, I then just upgraded the bars so they fitted me a bit better and then the brake, and so on. Basically, if you're only spending £100-150 you probably won't like it too much simply 'cos it'll be a bit turd. Equally, cheap BMXs have ultra short toptubes (19-20"), so they may be too short for your liking. Honestly, just try and get nearer £200-250. Even if you don't like it, you'll have more chance of selling on a decent complete than shit, cheap one just because one's more desirable than the other. You'll have to lose more money on the cheaper one than the more expensive one when it comes to selling it.
