1st post this one guys, so Hello to you all!!!!

Was into BMX heavily a couple of years ago but dew to work/grlfrd commitments things have died down since. Last bike I had was a Diamond Back Mr Lucky, before that i had a KHE beater. Both bikes were brilliant. but im lookin for something to replace it, im torn between

- 2004 GT BUMP
- 2004 MONGOOSE MENACE
- FLET ETHIC
- FREE AGENT TRAIL DUSTER

All are around the £150- £170 mark, your views on these would be appreciated or if you think there are any other worthy alternatives let me know cheers.

without a doubt a federal foundation, in fact you would be a fool not to buy it, it is one of (if not the) best compleate on the bmx market for its price.

No bike above 350 complete (gbp) has even close to the same part quality ( i myself had one after long ammounts of deliberation) you dont have to replace any parts it ****ing rocks hard (i have replaced a few things like grips and pedals but that was personal preferance + had em lyin around)

i was about to say, because of your first decisions, to go and find your DB mr lucky and ride it.

Hey every1

Finally it has come!!!

They delivered it 7:30am yesterday morning.. bloody lovin it. Everything i could want really.

Good quality parts, feels solid, very flickable and well balanced. Just gotta cut the bars down 2nite..

Did have a problem with the Crank flicking although i presume as it is new things needs to wear in, and a quick tighten up of a crank bolt fixed the probelm..

Definatley recomend it to any1 looking for a new bike.. There a nice bunch of guys too.. very helpful and have sent me numerous things in the post.

Its raining today, but that wont stop me :twisted:

Pictures to follow 2nite
