Ok so I was doing agressive inline but decided to start riding. I basically wanna do flatland and street, but mostly flatland. I still need to buy a bike so does anyone have any suggestions? I'm looking for a good biek for flatland that's around 200 bucks and is made by a good company. Thanks.

I'm an aggressive skater too, how long've you been skating?
As far as a bike..Im not sure about a flatland bike for 200 dollars...just..look at Fit, Volume, We The People, Redline...compare the specs..and whatever.

Thanks guys for the advice. And btw Poseidon, I've only been doing inline for about 3 months but I'm still pretty good. I'm thinkin about gettin an Eastern 2004 Battery. Is that good? Teh guy at pro cycles told me it was good.

yea i would say go for it...that seems alright for a beginner...just upgrade the cranks later and you have a decent bike...eastern makes good stuff...

if you want to go for a little better eastern complete jump up to the eastern big street complete which rocks a hercules frame...or even better go for a hercules complete.
