Hey whats up guys.Me and my little bro have been searching the forums about the Mirra 540 but we havent came to an answer yet so ill post it. Just a little while ago he decided to buy the DK Six Pack but he sorta changed his mind.So we were looking at the Mirra 540.My little bro has some questions so ill post them.Here comes the questions i hope it doesnt start an argument . Is it better than the DK Six Pack. Is It worth the $360.Thank You for all your help.

AND GUYS PLEASE DONT FLAME ME AND MY LITTLE BRO.

In a blind taste test, 9 out of 10 BMX noobs couldn't tell the difference between a DK Six Pack, a Mirra 540, and a hockey stick.

if hes 11(i think thats what you said) hes probably relativly light and not a hard rider. if he only plans to be jumpin down 3 stairs hed be fine on a department store bike and save you 1/2 the cost. but if he really wants a new bike form a respectable manufacturer, anything will hold up fine, no better than fine, itll hold up great for him. just get the six pack its a good bike not to mention it looks sick in that gray color it comes in. im pretty sure the 540 comes with 4 pegs and thats overkill and a 1/2. i know for a fact he isnt goin to be grinding for a while so pegs will just be for shuttleing your friends around the neighborhood. it also has front brakes, which again are fairly unnessicary. and im just taking a guess here but the dk is probably lighter and were your brother is small a light bike is much better suited for him.

There's blood in the streets, it's up to my ankles. She came. Blood in the streets, it's up to my knee. She came. Blood in the streets in the town of Chicago. She came. Blood on the rise, it's following me. Think about the break of day. She came and then she drove away. Sunlight in her hair. She came. Blood in the streets runs a river of sadness. She came. Blood in the streets, it's up to my thigh. She came. Yeah, the river runs red down the legs of a city. She came. The women are crying red rivers of weepin'. She came into town and then she drove away. Sunlight in her hair. Indians scattered on dawn's highway bleeding. Ghosts crowd the young child's fragile eggshell mind. Blood in the streets in the town of New Haven. Blood stains the roofs and the palm trees of Venice. Blood in my love in the terrible summer. Bloody red sun of fantastic L.A. Blood screams her brain as they chop off her fingers. Blood will be born in the birth of a nation. Blood is the rose of mysterious union. There's blood in the streets, it's up to my ankles. Blood in the streets, it's up to my knee. Blood in the streets in the town of Chicago. Blood on the rise, it's following me

YES!!! as a "noob" (that's kind a derogatory!?!) I would appreciate that kind of stiky!!! I'm new, but I did ride in the past it's just been a while - like 12yrs.

(maybe we could develope a term for old farts who are picking it back up after a long time...? Sorry, just thinking way to much...)

You can re-open the old threads that are for old school guys. Post in them and they get "Bumped" to the top of the active threads. Just don't do that for ones like "What stem should I get".

Cheers.
