which is better?
 
i am looking to buy a new bike, and have been looking at either a gt fueler or a haro bactrail series bike. which is better for dirt jumping or is there a better bike than either of these?

i like the dk six pack. its a good deal. and has some decent parts.

OK, scratch both the gt and haro ideas, iv been directed to look at hoffman bikes and was wondering if they are worthwhile bikes especially the rhythm il 1, or whould it be more worth it to step up and get the pl seried bike?

get the Hoffman bike.....OR....get a Haro F series...like an F3 or F4....nice bikes for not a whole lot

Just dirt jumping, or other riding?

Haro F-Series aren't really dirt jumpers. They're much better for street. DK six pack all the way.

i have the hoffman rythm, its ****ing awesome, watch out for the back hubs though, mine was a little defective (its warrantied, don't worry)

Spin a wheel. Pick a bike. Then become a religious devotee to the one fate has chosen for you. This is how things are done in the BMX world.

i don't really get this dirt/street/flatland bike thing..what is the true difference between dirt and street and all that...i know gearing, tires, brakes, rims, sealed or unsealed bearing, etc., etc.,,,,,, but is the frame different??

bmxrdr88 08-13-05 05:53 PM

its all about personal preferance.

Actually, it's all about steering geometry, top tube length, and chainstay length.

BBs are usually jacked way up high and seat tubes are real short on flatland frames, too. Down tubes either curved or gusseted for greater clearance on the front wheel and tolerances on my own frame are so small that any sprocket over like 32t will rub the frame and the rear brake won't clear. Very compact bikes.

Yeah, that too.

Could you please not bump old threads? He asked over a month ago, so there's a very good chance he's bought a bike.
