Someone a few threads down complains that it is heavy, ~ 40 lbs. I just got a Disrupter IL1, I like it, my first real bmx bike though so I can't tell you much.

The DK 6-pack is the most recommended starter bike. I chose to spend more because I wanted to start with a cassette, and wanted to try a gyro and full brakes first, take them off later... rather than the other way around.

There is almost no way the bike could way forty pounds even with full brakes and four pegs.

The Eastern Element isn't too bad, i'd prefer a Six pack, like you guess but my friend got an Element and it looks nice. Those cassettes are nice that the bike comes with. Smooooth.

kk yer ill try finding the dk 6 pak and yer thankz guys, ill tell u wen i get it and how it goes. =) and ill tell u my first trick on it

wait up, can anyone tell me wat is so good about the 6 pak and if there is anything bad about it

Mod Note: Wait up is right. Please talk here in full, complete, grammatically correct sentences so that people can understand you and so if someone else has the same problem as you, they can it by using the search function (which I'm guessing you haven't used). Just get the 6 Pack, it's a good bike and you will enjoy it. Also, most likely, your first trick will either be a bunnyhop or a manual.

You should both be given a formal warning for that. By joining the forums you agreed you would make an effort to post properly, you have both failed spectacularly at it.

I am using every one of my magical powers and wishing colon cancer on you, but sadly I think you are to far away.

Too bad. Break the habit or people here will break you (myself included). You agreed to do your best when you signed up, and are not doing so.
