Any BMX bike experts out there for advice please ?

Hi guys. My 16 year old son is being treated to a BMX bike and has a budget of up to £300. He's looking at a We The People or a Hoffman bike, but I'm putting this post out just to see if any of you have opinions on these brands, or point us towards a better deal or brand in this price range.

Thanks in advance for any help....

We are the People.

Mongoose do some decent reliable bmxs

All depends what he wants it for? Street, dirt, flatland or all? Will he be using it to do stunts or just riding?

Mostly just riding around with his friends and visiting the local BMX park near us, so more street riding that anything else.

We The People are worth the money, nice bikes. I currently have an Eastern which is really nice.

Try to get sealed bearings on as much as possible in your price range, eg. Sealed bottom bracket (try get a 3 piece crank), sealed wheel bearings, sealed headset. This will be worth it in the long run.
