The DK is full cro-mo, if I recall correctly. The Haro is not. If you're a big rider and into dirt jumping, that may help your decision.

I'm 210 ride a Haro Alum 24" I've raced it, do jumps on it, no real hard landings though. I try to hit the down hill smoothly. I've tweaked the back whell pretty good a few times though. But I prefer alum myself. I know alot of guy prefer cromo. We let them off easily. My daughter has a 24" as well. But different geometry. I say that only to reccomend riding the bike first. That may be the deciding factor.

alright, thanks for the feedback. Im not sure how long the alum would last, i wana be able to huck myself and have the confidence that my bike will hold even if i dont dial the landing perfect. Im gunna go to the local shops and try out the DK and the Haro and go from there.

Yeh i'm probably gunna go for the general lee 24. I heard from someone that the 3/8" axels would be too small for someone my size, any opinions on that?

As long as you arent going to run pegs, 3/8" axles should be fine.
