DK Cincinnatti VS. F4 Haro!

Ok, which should i get.

The F4 is all the base stuff except for one thing.(Sadly i forget what that one thing is.) It wasn't anything major like the wheels or the axel of the frame.
its 209.00 Do you think im getting a crap bike? Or just a really amazing deal? Do you even think i should get a Haro period?
The F4 is at some bike store in town.

The DK (At a different store in town) is all the base stuff no mods or anything, never been ridden on.
its 279.99. The guy at the store said he'd throw in the other two pegs. Tune ups and tightening and stuff is all free.

Ok guys...i probly havent made you like me to much. But itd be great if you could help me out.

Which one?!?!?!

Wow! Your friend is really smart! I mean, Dave Mirra is amazing, so his bikes must be great for flatlanding as well as freestyle! Especially since Haro is amazing and the best company there is!






If you thought I was being seriously, you should shoot yourself in the stomache and die slowly- very slowly.

DK Signal or KHE Flatland.. depending on how much you would like to spend. The DK is a bit over $150 cheaper.

why not khe stylus? i think it's better than dk, especially for 10$ you can pre-order for when the shipment comes in as well.

Hey dude, the only flatland bikes that Haro has is the Haro M7 series, and Dk has only the DK signal. The geometry between a street/park and a true flatland bike are like night and day. Your best bet is online from like flatland fuel. The DK signal, KHE stylus, or the KHE flatland. The new KHE flatlands are pretty nice, with Sun rims, Geraldo 8pc handle bars, and what not.

The stylus is a little over 30 pounds, which isn't very good for a flatland bike, especially since the toptube is shorter. It would be difficult with that much weight I would think (I never tried flatlanding before).

Most flatbikes stock with brakes, cromo frame and all run at about 30 pounds. You just build muscle after a while and get used to it. Once you get the balance point for a trick it really very easy. If you really want to flatland, some thing like the KHE Stylus, or if you absolutely have to the DK Signal is your best bet. Street frame are usaully to heavy, over built, and long to be used as a decent flatland bike.
