anybody buyin a new bike always get a picture first, dont go by wat they say, even if they sound nice and trustworthy, i just bought a used haro mirra flair, u might of seen me post about it in other threads, but anyway, i got ripped off terribly, the guy promised me a bike with a couple scratches on the chainstay and all original parts except for some mods that supposedly cost him $500 but anyway the guy sent me a bike that was all scratched up, everywhere, it had plastic pedals, not even bmx ones, and he dint give me the extra barends and haro stickers, i cant send it back because the shipping costs 65 bucks added on to the $200 that i payed for the bike, well all i have to say is when ur buyin a bike out of the classifieds, like the ones on danscomp, (where i got it) always get a pic and dont buy it unless it has a pic, otherwise ur takin a big risk, dont make the same mistake i did!

Who would be dumb enough not to get a picture? Oh you? lol joking, you should be smart enough to know to get a picture of it before you buy it. Never buy a bike from someone without a picture, as you have now just learned.

yes it was an impulse decision to buy the stupid thing, i was so excited to get a nice new bike and wanted one soon so i bought the first good deal i saw, but luckily im buyin better pedals, better brakes and other stuff like that, the other good thing is my friends dad can paint it since he works at an autobody shop so it mite not be so bad afterall
