I used to race BMX bikes back in Florida... Real cool sport and bikes are totally different from your freestyle bike... Lighter frames carbon fiber forks clip pedals...

A real good out of the box race bike would be a Redline bike.. Check them out there real cool and extremely light.

Want some tips on bike set up...

Try lowering your seat hight an tilting it back some, take those reflectors off and that stand, depending on your riding style you are park, vert, dirt, or flatland you could do without the pegs
And if you want to get nasty with it you could ride breakless it might sound silly but if there's no way you can stop you will be forced to jump! You will learn faster or probably get hurt a lot like me

Those aren't really that great of tips. Taking off the reflectors does what? Lowering the seat and tilting it back only makes a difference if he rides dirt and/or park. If he wants to do flat, keeping the seat up is way better for doing tricks.(Ask Terry Adams how it goes..) Brakeless is dumb IMO. At least keep back brakes, they don't "get" in the way if you have a long enough cable to allow you to barspin. The only one I really agree with is taking the kickstand off because sometimes it will open up on its own and could really screw you over.. haha

my bike:
2010 Specialized P1. Currently with a snapped crank..awaiting money to get a new one :P Only mods are a KMC Kool RASTA Chain, and a FIT Bike co. RASTA Sprocket, and new grips as of a week ago.

IMO, brake less can be good, it forces you to push the limits and try new things, you may get hurt more( trust me, I know this) but really it helps you become a smooth rider in the end, I go through stages where I will only ride brake less and then go back to brakes, it is more of a challenge riding a 26" brake less than it would be on a BMX.........
