ive ridden a Spooky Bandwagon MTB for the last few years,but after moving to an area without any convenient offroad i was thinking about turning to bmx. i was wondering if anyone would be able to suggest a good bike to start out on for around the £3/400 mark. i was wanting something with a decent frame that i could upgrade as i went along.
i was intending to ride mainly street but i also wanted something that wouldnt make flatland totally impossible.

any help would be appreciated.

Look at Haro. Cheap prices, decent bikes, excellent availability and great for beginners. Haro 540 Mirra (street) or a Haro Backtrail X3 (this is for dirt jumping, but I am just giving you alternatives). There's also a lot of other street bikes out there, I recommend visiting your local bike shop.

Step 1: Buy BMX bike. Remeber, you get what you pay for.
Step 2: Smash computer
Step 3: Go ride and don't worry about shit.

Yup. The only use for the net and BMX's is a few tips from experienced riders, and even then, it's -=-=ALWAYS=-=- better to have real world experience rather then going on tips.

there aren't always locals. then sites as bmxtrix can help a great deal giving you some tips. But the actual learning is with practising of course.
