Help Me Decide If 6 Pack Will Suit My Riding Desires
I want to try street/park, flatland and trials. I like technical tricks, but I think I will like to flow in the park too. I've been practicing trials moves on my MTB, but it's hard to lug that thing around and I'd like to try some of the moves on the smaller BMX before I buy a trials frame.
The other bikes I'm looking at are the Hoffman Disrupter EL2 or IL1. The EL2 isn't full chromoly like the 6 pack. But both Hoffman's have front brakes and a gyro, which I want on my bike. The EL2 is 20" TT which might be better for flatland but the 20.5" of the 6 pack and IL1 could possibly be the best compromise for technical tricks and fast riding/flowing?
Can I easily/cheaply add a front brake and gyro to the 6 pack? I'm just not sure if it requires a different fork and headset. Also, I'm willing to spend the extra hundred dollars on the IL1, if that's the case, would you suggest I get it over the 6 pack? I like it because it comes with everything I want already.
Thanks, I did do some research here which is why I know the 6 pack is the standard beginner bike, hope I asked some informed questions and you don't blow me off as a total noob!
