    Starter Bike Under $250

    I just started biking and I need a cheap bike. I wanted the paydirt but people say it sucks. Anyone got anything else?

    what style of riding are you going to be doing? If it is dirt, I would recommend the GT Mach 1 pro, or the DK General Lee. If you are doing street, I would recommend the DK six pack, or eight pack, or Fuse 2. If you are gonna do both, I would probably go with the six pack.

    if i were you i would get a fuse because i have a gt mach 1 pro and i was wanting to do dirt at the time but then i liked street more and i used the mach one pro and now i have all heavy duty parts and that cost a lot so get something like the six pack

    I'm just looking to do some street right now and maybe dirt later because I'm still getting used to riding since I used to skate. The Six pack is #300 so thats out and I was wondering is chromoly is that much beter than steel for just starting out with street. Im not planning on huge jumps or anything, Just hitting ledges.

    You mean 6-Pack right?

    There is no such thing as a 5-Pack, that would be 2 jumps and then a lip with no lander, thats kinda of dumb. Unless your still building the trails. (the point is its the 6-Pack not the 5-pack.)
