    flatland specific?

    im in the market for a new bike. im 5'9-150lbs. majority of everything i do is flatland but ill also try some 180's and jump some curbs from time to time. i've been looking into the WTP metric, KHE dafunction, KHE stylus, DK signal or even a GT performer. ive always had a hydromatic comp kinda old school from around 2000 and it held up really nice. now my question is if i were to buy a flatland specific bike and jump curbs/`180s and jump it from time to time am i going to mess it up? can it handle abuse like that? the second part of my question is, which of these bikes should i go with or should i look into other ones. cost isnt really a huge deal but i would like to get the best deal for my money. thanks alot

    Not much of us on here are flatlanders but KHE are one of the best known flatland brands so it would make sense to go with one of them. The DK is also apparently good
