Ok, I finally made my mind up on a bike. I am new to this so I want a good entry-level bike. I settled with the Haro F3 however a friend of mine told me that a 3 piece crank is better than a 1 piece crank. He never told me why, so can someone answer this question for me.
I really don't want to spend more than $300 on a bike. The Haro F3 is $230, but if a bike with 3 piece crank is really a whole lot better than a bike with 1 piece crank. Then I'll get the F5 for $370.
Also, are there any other bikes under $300 that I should consider looking at before buying the F3?
