A bit Pricey? You must be new to BMX lol. You seem to be wanting to buy a piece of junk (not to be rude), getting a nice bike in the beginning will be cheaper in the long run. Good luck

Why not just buy a Mongoose if your not going to be using it? Might as well save $200.

Just the frame I want is over yout budget lol.

I would never get a mongoose, because those are pieces of crap, and a waste of money. If i could buy a good bike for $300 ill be happy, but i dont see why spending $200 more for a bike that is 1 pound lighter, would make a difference to me. Haros make good top quality bikes, like the forum pro, but they are $550, which i see as pricey for me, because im not in that range, ill leave those to nyquist and mirra. I like the fit bikes too, the fit am 2008 is $280, which isnt bad, and the fit pro, is $330, i might have to see if they sell them at my local bike store, so i can sit on it

Well, if you really want a real bike look at a DK 6 pack. Everyone swears by them being a great entry level bike. A little heavier, but not bad. My cousin has a Haro, but some of them in your price range aren't full Chromoly. His isn't and it's much heavier then a full 4130 frame. Definately look for that.
