hey the free agents are really nice bikes but if u look at the entry fit its also well priced and has some great components i dont know much about the free agent as where i stay there is no importers but what i have heard they are really great(you are looking at about $120 which is really good for a starting off bike

first, do you plan to race or freestyle?

Probably freestyle.

I'm small and light so a light bike would be good.

for a good starter bike that is good, cheep and light, ide say buy the dk step up or the 2005 eastern trail digger.

dk step up- trail design frame, dk trail fork, dk-2pc bars, top-load stem, dk vice grips, rear tektro u-brake, gyro, 175mm 3-piece cranks, alloy platform pedals, 36h alex rims w/14mm axles. 20" top tube. $199.99

eastern trail digger '05-trail design frame, 48h rims w/14mm axles and high wall rims, 175mm 3-piece tubular cranks, alloy platform pedals, 2-piece bars, front load stem, rear u-brake, gyro, dirt tires. 19.5" top tube. $199.99

both of these bikes are very good stock and are easily upgradeable once you get better and have more money.

it depends on which style of riding you want to do ,to what bike you wanna go for , as its a first bike i would go for somthing strong, and if you do manage to brake parts on it up grade them as you go
