    Slauson or Six Pack

    Whats up guys,... Im new here, and looking to get in to a little bmx. I have messed with it a liile befor.
    But im looking to get a new bike. (I have like an x1 back trail now. And its beat the death)
    I have ben doing some searching, and everyone seem to say the six pack is a good bike to start with.
    So I when to the bike shop this morning, and they did not have on there. But the dude was like the integral is much better for the 30 bucks more. Because of the crank and bars. Was he just saying that or would you go for it over the six pack? Any help would be great.... Thanks guys.

    Sorry for kind of one of thoes newb posts. lol But I did not reay find any info on this bike.
    Here is a link to the bike.http://www.danscomp.com/101534.php?cat=BIKES
    Thanks guys.

    If I were you, I'd still go with the Six Pack. I trust those parts more. The Slauson is a pretty good bike too.

    That is what I wanted to know. What parts do you think there may be probs with? (I ask because I want a bike soon, and can't get the six pack for a week) I will wate if it is a big deal.....

    Thanks for your help bro.

    It has unsealed wheels compared to the sealed wheels on the Six Pack.

    There is nothing wrong with the cranks on the Six Pack. Yes, they aren't as good as the ones on the Slauson, but they should serve you just fine.

    Save your money and buy things as they break. The only thing you could really buy now are grips.
