Mirra Co. is a pretty shady company, and they forget to weld things.

If you bump it up to a little bit more, about $300, the DK Six Pack is your best bet.

why does everyone recomend that? for the same price you can get an '07 stolen wrap and those in my opinion are just as good if not better than the 6-pack and cooler looking.

Newsflash: I've recommended the stolen wrap before because I think it is a good bike, but it is just a tad bit more expensive. Just because they are cooler looking does not make it better... and what in your mind makes the stolen wrap as good or better than the six pack? Please provide proof and examples.

6-pack=

Full 100% 4130 chromoly, DK chromoly fork, DK chromoly 2-pc bars, 175mm 3-pc with Spanish BB, DK Trail stem, platform pedals, 36T DK CNC'd Iron Cross chainwheel, Sun 48H rims, sealed rear DK Macho hub, 14mm axles, 13TOdyssey freewheel, street/dirt tires, Tektro lever, Tektro 904 U-brake, DK Jump seat, DK Vise grips, 2 DK Bundy pegs. 20.5" Toptube. (32 lbs)

Wrap=

100% chromoly frame with "S" gussets and micro dropouts, 1-1/8" chromoly fork, Stolen chromoly 2-pc bars, forged alloy stem, integrated headset, 175mm tubular 3-pc cranks with sealed Euro BB, CNC 6061 33Tchainwheel, DX style platform pedals, 36H front/48H rear Alex MX-22 rims, sealed alloy hubs with 14mm axles, 12T cassette cog, KMC Z-510 chain, Tektro U-brake, Stolen embossed logo seat with Kevlar edges,
Maxxis Holly Roller front tire & Maxxis M-Tread rear tire, 2 steel pegs. 20.75" Toptube (29.7 lbs)

I think that says it all. I dont know maybe its just my opinion. I like the fact that the wrap is 3 pounds lighter. you get 33/12t ratio instead of 36/13t. I also like the dirt tire in front so you can trail ride nicely but still have the street control to. I don't know much I guess, as I am still new. But to me for only $20 more, I think its worth it.

Looks like the wrap's got a sealed front hub and a cassette instead of a freewheel, which is good. And an integrated headset, but regular ones last pretty long anyway...

I was just joking because poserzack said he would never run a cassette.

1. you didn't explain anything, you just posted the specs on the bikes
2. you don't even know anything about the specs on the bikes as proven by the above question
3. what do you actually know about bikes besides that they have two wheels and are capable of motion when someone pedals?

Actually, yes, most of everything does come naturally to me because I am a natural athlete. The matter being debated on the other hand is just knowledge, which you obviously don't have in this area. It also shows that you haven't learned much in school. Don't they teach you when to use "knew" and "new" anymore? You still never answered how old you are...

It was a typo. Wait let me guess...That never happens to you does it? Your just a natural at typing to arent you? I've already introduced myself and said my age in it. Use the search button . You are probably a natural at that to, so it wont take long to find it.

1. Being a smartass here isn't a way to make yourself very popular.
2. I look over my spelling and grammar and make sure most of everything is proper English everytime I make a post.
3. Why would I make such an effort to look for your age when all you have to do is type out a combination of (hopefully) two numbers, and atleast one of them (hopefully) being a one? It would take a bunch of sifting through your very random posts to find your age, and is not something you would really search for.
4. I like to use numbers.

EDIT: 5. I'm adding you to my ignore list. Be honored, you are the first one to make it to the infamous list. I warned you too- both online, and here.
