    A new BMX track has opened up down the road so I fancy giving it a try. looking for a cheap BMX to see if I like it before splashing the cash on something more bling 😀

    Not too fussed about paintwork etc, so long as it pedals / rolls / stops and won’t break under a mid 30’s, 6ft 2in fatboy, with limited jumping finesse!



    what do you class as “cheap”?

    got a friend selling a mongoose chamber 2009 (i think – grey/silver colour with purple wheels) for around £200 if you’re interested.

    very nice looking bike, does the job well.

    alternatively, he’s also selling an older (but surprisingly well kept) diamondback, i think it’s a joker but i’ll check for you.

    that’d be much cheaper, maybe around £60 or so, not including postage.

    if you’re interested, email me (poltheball AT hotmail DOT com) and i’ll get you photos and more info.



    Looking for sub £100 – it’ll only get used a few times before being “recycled” on ebay and I’ll either buy something decent, or swear off BMX for life.


    righto, so do you want photos etc of the diamondback then?

    Sorry poltheball, I didn’t read your post properly so missed the bit about the Diamondback – pics would be great.

    mbydmt – could you send pic’s – address in profile.


    After crispy has had first shout on everything I’d be interested on anything similar, ideally 24″

    I’ve got a mint SE Racing Floval Flyer that I had for my 40th … long story … hardly ever been used but I have no idea what it’s worth?

    Mate has carbon Wilier road bike that I would like to fund so seems the BMX will have to go!

    It’s a 24″ wheel so might be suitable … just need to find out it’s value. New ones are £360 (rrp £416).
