(before I start: sorry for long post) hi, I'm Brady. I'm 15 and 5'6" and 120lbs, and I am currently saving up for a new 125cc pit bike under 1k. yes, yes I already know that should just save up for a nicer one and not a Chinese one, but I want to be sure that dirt bikes are something I want to do, so I don't want to go crazy on my first one. I have ridden bikes before and I understand and can operate a manual (which is what I want). I also have experience with small engines so I can handle maintenance. so the point is, I put my choice between two different bikes, but I can't decide what would be the best choice in the long run. I have split my choice between the COOLSTER M125 (in red), which is Coolsters souped-up, nicer version. (their most common one is the qg214, but this is NOT that) it's when you search it make sure its the "M125". then my other choice is an Apollo DB-X18

Before buying a Chinese bike, I would rent/borrow a bike for a few days to get the feel for it and see how you like it since you're not sure you will be interested or not. You'll have a hard time selling that cheap Chinese bike if you end up not liking it.

5'6", 120lbs... I'd say a Honda XR100/Yamaha TTR 125/Kawasaki KX140 would be a great fit and (at least in my market) would run around $1000 and resell for about the same price in a year or two.
