I don't know the first thing about BMX bikes really, but DS has asked for one for his birthday (Nov) or Christmas. Can anyone tell me where to look for one and how much to realistically spend please.

Also how to tell if it's a BMX bike as it seems it's also a description of the style. confused

BMX's are easy to tell from other bikes as they have high rise handlebars with a gap in the middle rather than regular style handlebars, they almost always have 20inch wheels. The best range is evans cycles and price wise £250. Wethepeople or Sunday are good budget brands. How old is DS? BMX 's are designed as trick bikes and arent too practical for kids to actually ride, theyre just cool! (I run a bike shop and used to ride BMX before DD)
Hope this helps grin
