    I have no idea about that make cause I've had the same frame for the last couple of years but you can't really go wrong with complete bikes these days. Most are well specced with off the shelf parts so go for it mate.

    Best off getting yourself down to a bike shop and trying out some frames see what suits you as everyone is different.

    Wouldn't go for a Blank bike, my mate had one and it was poo. I've always had mongoose and they've never let me down, good strong bikes and in this case the more expensive defaintley built better.
    Then get yourself some pimp ass wheels like these :thumbs:

    get ur self bout 350 to 400 for a new complete. or get on ebay and buy one that some ones built up i sold myn on here for 400 look for bmx for sale cost me well over 1500 for it all. You wont to really get a kink/ fit bike.co/united/subrosa/we the people/federal/ alot stronger than all the shit out there and ive riden or have mate that ride part from all of these ,ive riden for the past 9 year and have had loads of bike, frame and allsorts off part over my year ,and buy better part that will last the abuse and thing that you will give is better than buying cheap shit and have to still buy better parts in the end ,

    Yeah another vote for a descent seconhand bike, scout ebay or pinkbike. My brother got a really nice easton for about 350 second hand. You wll get a ridiculouslly well specced bike for that sort of money and there are plenty that have barley been ridden about.

    Yeah really true, only ever bought one bike brand new, that was my first mongoose, the blue one above was off my mate for £70. Second hand is always cheaper and usually better :)

    i had a fitbikeco team, profile stuff,odyssey hubs and rims. was nice, used it for ramp stuff but held up really well killing it on street.

    you can buy them dirt cheap now, but a full specced bike can be picked up for around 300ish on ebay, but you will end up swapping bits to suit your riding anyways i would of thought.

    forget the giro and get a odyssey slick linear cable, 3 barspins and the cable doesnt tighten like a usual standard cable.

    hope this helps
