I have had a GT Zone BMX for about a year now, and decided its time to upgrade. The reason is that the brakes have always been bad, and the frame seems very heavy.

I was looking around at different bike manufacturers, but ended up coming right back around to the GT Performer anyway.

I am going to be doing just flatland tricks (no dirtjumping), and I am wondering if GT is the way to go, or if I should be looking at other makes for what I want to use it for. Is the difference between the GT Zone and the GT Performer that much?

Thanks everyone.
