Hello everybody!

I'm new here to the forum but have gone here many times for advice.

So, I have been riding for about 6 years. My first bike (besides a mongoose. When I started getting serious.) was and is now a 2011 intense BMX xl pro, racing bike. I only raced for a year-year and a half because I started getting out of it and getting into park/DJ.

I'm ready to get a park bike because every time I ride another good park bike at our park, it feels like I can do everything that I can do with my bike, but effortless.

So, first question, is it more cost effective to buy a complete bike or build one? If it is to build one, I can research each part and figure it out. Otherwise I would like some help on choosing a complete. I have about a $500 budget but I can fudge a couple hundred if I can get a wayy better bike.

Let me know what else you would like to know lol. Thank you guys!
Nolie

Welcome to the forum

Hah, I was actually looking for something like that before I posted this! Thank you! Do you think all of what he said about the brands are still true? Like is redline still bad? I mean, it has been 6 years.
