    Looking at a dirt cheap, used, starter DJ/Urban bike.

    So, I'm 27 now but raced BMX form 7-9 years old. For nostalgia reasons, I checked out the place where all my old races were held and it turns out it's now a public bike park with skinnies, dirt jumps, and pump tracks. I ended up bringing my 2007 Santa Cruz Heckler down and had a ton of fun on the DJ and pump sections, but full suspension bikes suck in that kind of setting.

    So now I'm looking for a used, cheap, $200-$300, complete DJ/Urban bike to have some fun on.

    The CL selection sucks in my area:

    Are the fireball or P1 on CL worth looking into?

    Source suggestions? Brands/models? Anyone in Albuquerque want to sell me a bike?

    Specialized P bikes are worth looking at. But that one is overpriced for its age. Mongoose Fireball, I don't know too much about, but it also looks old and seems to have some random parts.

    You might want to check out a new Haro Steel Reserve. You can get the all-rigid one for like $550. Then add a suspension fork later if you want to. (Although if you want to run a fork with a 20mm thru-axle, then you'd need a different front hub in the future).
