    get a haro, they are have strong frames and are built to hold anybody. I have a Haro Backtrail X2 its lasted through a lot of tough jumps/bails and only thing to show on it is a little rip in the seat :cool:

    Arent they really heavy though?

    I used to have a GT DYNO. That was also a really tough bike.

    The only thing I ever changed on that bike was the tires and brake pads

    x2. That's what I have, and the thing is bomb proof. Also helps that I have Demolition front and rear wheels on there. Double walled smoked rims.

    Kinda shitty pictures I'm sorry. Best I could without waking up the entire Condo unit with the flashing.

    And Primo Meat Grinder Pedals. They live up to their name. Trust me. Better yet, trust my shins.

    Nah, haven't been in a few years now. Need to get back into it. Mostly street and park stuff.

    Even made up my own stunt. It's called the running man.

    While riding your bike, you jump off behind the bike and let it keep going, you run around your bike while it's still going and do a full lap and then hop back on.

    Nothing too hard, but it was fun to amuse people with.

    Haro's are a little heavier than most other BMX bikes but being your size and weight i really dont see a problem. its also something you might need to get used to, its like riding skateboards, they come in different sizes the feel of the bike is suposed to be comfortable to you. but i must say, dave mirra and ryan nyquist have both ridin for Haro :)

    You are 16 and have that nice of a truck.... DAMN! I wish I were you.

    sorry um as far as bikes goes... I am a mountain bike man so I can't help you all that much but I do work in a bike shop. I would definitely have to say a Haro is the best you can get.

    Might wanna check out some fbm or fit completes, not saying anything bad about haro, but you take a haro into a skatepark or some trails and most people are gonna assume you cant ride and laugh. Also chromoly is perfectly fine, how much are you looking to spend?
