    Yes Im new, and I have searched. I need assistance.

    Hey all!

    I used to ride about 15 years ago. Back then I had a nice Haro and a GT Performer. Now I have a son, and would like to get back into riding. I would use it mainly for street, and a little dirt and vert. I would like to get a "complete" bike, but I would like to keep my limit at $350.00.

    Ive read through alot of posts, and popular vote seems to go to the DK Six Pack. Is this the best bang for your buck bike? I recently came across an 03 Haro F3 for 150.00...seems like a good deal, but still a little unsure about it. TIA. Tim

    If I were you, I would go ahead and spend the extra $200 for the DK Six Pack. The money spent will be well worth it. Are you going to be riding, or is your son going to be riding?

    The DK Six Pack should be good unless you are willing to spend more...

    And if you want to get it done right off the bat, go big and get the Fit Flow (Park or Trail) or the DK Four Pack.

    Yes, if you want to have a very nice bike, go with either of the Fit Flows, or go to an Integral Bel-Air. Any of those are excellent bikes. The Four Pack is decent, but the Fits and Integral beat it out (in my opinion).

    Since his budget is $350 those are a little more. Go with a DK Six-Pack or be different and get a Stolen Wrap.

    Thanks for the input everyone!! It looks like I will end up with either the Stolen Wrap or DK 6pack. Any other advise as to which is better? The Wrap looks like it may have a few extra goodies on it...

    I really wish I had access to check out the bikes in person before I purchase...this is so difficult to choose. Since both bikes are getting good reviews, I guess I cant go wrong with either one. Is there a specific reason any of you would choose one over the other?

    the reason that would make me want the wrap over the six pack is; integrated headset, more than 2 pounds lighter, smaller sprocket, cassette, and i like the rear tire. the only thing i like more on the DK is that it has a spanish bottom braket, but that doesnt really matter to me.

    Go with the Wrap. I think it's a better deal due to the cassette hub.

    From the general consensus, American and Mid BB's are better, although I have never had a Spanish BB. Actually, I've never even touched my BB.

    Im pretty sure Im going to pull the trigger on the Stolen this weekend. The more I researched these bikes, though, the Stolen appears to be more comprable to the 4-pack than the 6-pack, which makes it an even better deal.
