Thought one might be cool for the wee lad :)

Can someone clue me up a bit please?....what age would you need to be for one and how much might one cost?

That sounds super-vague, but I'm super-newb with all things BMX! :lol:

Cheers

im not super clued up about retro bmx but i know my fare share about modern bmx
if you can go for something like GT, mongoose, wethepeople, eastern, stolen, sunday etc and something with a 25t front sprocket and 9t rear cassette wheel. three piece crank and only the rear brake. thats the usual sort of thing thats in with the kids around here anyway. if your looking for a good set up expect to spend around £300-£500 :)

must get my wethepeople out soon
