I dont have the time to find a bike forum and ask and I dont know anybody to ask so here it goes.
I've been riding the same BMX bike for about 4 years now. It's finally to the point where I dont think it's worth fixing. It's heavy, bombproof but I guess that can be expected out of what feels like tungsten. I need to spend more money on replacement parts (almost everything) then the thing was worth new. Time for a change.
I really just want to hit dirt jumps, however we sit on damn near 300 acres of some stuff a mountain bike would just beg to destroy. I dont want a mountain bike and I still want something pretty compact, but I would be interested in taking a step away from the BMX world. I don't want to break the bank. I know you get what you pay for but it's not like I'm an expert. I know nothing. Somebody tell me everything I need to know. Everything, please, I'm fucking clueless.
