Hey whats up guys i was thinking about getting an Eastern Battery Bike.I know its a dirt jumper but do u think its ok to use of Freestyle/street use.Also if you have this bike whats the strenghs and weaknesses and how much does it weigh.

What about the DK Six pack. What kind of bike is that and also how much does it weigh.Is the Eastern Battery or the DK Six Pack better. The only thing i dont like about the Dk is that it only has the back brakes.I dont know but most people say that it is better if u only have 1 brake.Is it easy to add the front brake.How many of you guys own it. What colors does the Dk come in.Can the bar on the DK Six Pack spin to a 360? can it make a full turn or is the brakes like the normal bikes.I just noticed in the picture and it looks like the brake line goes straight to the back like it wont be able to do a 360 turn.Also how long is the handlebar.

What about the DK 8 pack.Is it better than the 6 pack and the Eastern. Oh and i will be riding street/freestyle.

Buy me a 6 pack too. MGD would be just fine. Six and a half bucks here for one!

Ok, the DK is probably the better bike, if I'm to believe what I've read here so far.

you can always cut the bars down and you will be able to spin the bars all the way around(360) with the straight cable setup(the brakes).

Does it even matter? Just use a hacksaw or a pipe cutter if you think it's too long.

Would you mind thinking before asking rhetorical questions in the future?

Straight down the middle. Be sure to clamp tightly when you reinstall.

Let me go grab my stock DK Six-Pack, which is conveniently right behind me here in my cubicle, and check on the office scale.

It weighs 37 grams.

The problem is that the DK website has SFA for info on their bikes. But they put that clown that offed himself on their homepage.

You need to be 13 to post on the forums. You can return when you are 13. Please don't sign up again until then, as we'll just ban you again.

Can anyone think of any reason to keep this thread, or should it be deleted?

I'd just lock it. The BMX forum needs a "Comedy Goldmine" subforum.
