Bike: Sunday Soundwave
MSRP: $1,150

While the prices of damn near everything else has skyrocketed in the meantime, the cost of a legit, pro-level BMX bike has stayed more or less the same for a long time now. In this case, just more than a G buys you all the bike you'll ever need—at least until you destroy it trying something completely insane. Feel free to build up one from scratch, but prepare to spend nearly half again as much.
