I was in the same boat as you. I did a lot of looking at websites, reading forums, and asked a few questions. I ended up deciding on an SSR 140tx. I'm waiting for it to show up, (should be later this week).

I guess you'll need to ask what you want to do with the bike. Race? play? trails? I wanted a play bike that would still be fun on a small back yard track.

right now im just looking for something to play around on. im been looking at a lot of different websites and have narrowed down my search to either a SSR 125A1 or an Orion OPBS XG but it seems like SSR is a bigger name which makes me think that they are better.

thanks scooterpimp that does help me because it seems that more people would go with a SSR and you said you have never had any trouble with it which leads me to believe that its a good bike

Do you have some sort of reason why you don't like SSR? Please inform us! Please don't take offense, but when you come on here and look like a pitster pro fan boy, your credibility takes a dive.

I like the geo and suspension of the pitster a lot more, feels much better than the ssr150 my friend has. However, neither have been as reliable as my crf50, just havent had any problems with bolts stripping with normal use or suspension problems. This thing aint no childs bike :thumbsup:

^^ Thats my bike, its in my driveway... You can see it on planetminis also, my user name there is RiDe.
Scooterpimp you are starting to annoy me, All I am offering is my opinion. Besides its a pitbike, they are meant to be small like a childs bike which makes them fun/funny to ride.
