    anyone recommend a decent brand of BMX? really dont have a clue about what i should be looking for, as long it looks sweet and has nice tyres.

    looking to spend no more than £100
    not bothered if its been used

    Other than a unicycle, probably the worst bike in the world for any commuting.

    A BMX is terribly impractical for uni use, plus it's going to be desirable to scallies who might want to nick it :/
    Maybe look at a mountain bike or road hybrid? Much safer for use on the road, gets you from A to B quicker, and you can add mudguards and what-not for the winter.
