You guys are all probably thinking...



Anyways, I have been in the mountain biking scene for a couple years now (im 15), and constantly, I am trying to find ways to make my bike more like a BMX. My Norco 250 sports single speed gears, rigid fork, 4130 Chromo tubing as well as other BMX style parts. I ride park, street, and Dirt.

I have finally quit trying to make my bike a bmx and put it up for sale (email me if your intreasted :p). Because I am new to this scene, i really have a limited idea as to which manufacturers are respected. Im looking for a frame + custom build or complete bike. I am willing to spend $1000.00 CDN but will put more in if neccesary.

What would be a good brand to go with (looking for a urban/park/dirt bike)? I was looking at the Fly bikes frames and they seem pretty well spec'd. Is this true (OH, and which FLY bike is the best, I can't tell, they all have similar specs and close price range). Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appriciated.

haha sorry for all the spelling errors im a illeterate ukranian
