Welcome to the forum, please speak in correct grammer by the way

I'm not a flatlander myself and there are very little on this forum but I think the KHE would be the better bike as it is much more well known for it's flatland when Haro have made some bad bikes over the years

Word. You could also look at the DK Signal which is supposed to be a good bike.

http://www.harobikes.com/2004/m5/ Thats the M5
http://aebike.com/page.cfm?action=de...=30&SKU=BK9017 KHE Stylus
http://www.albes.com/index.asp?PageA...OD&ProdID=1828 DK Signal

Those are all the bikes you were talking about for other peoples reference's. I would go with the DK Signal or the KHE Stylus. I don't know much about Flatland though. I hope that helps.

hm... don't ride flatland but if you're just a beginner... not too serious then maybe any less expensive but still reliable bike would work best.
