    looking to buy...

    i don't know TOO much about bikes so i need some help. im looking at the
    2009 Kink Launch
    2008 Dk step up
    new diamondback joker
    new free agent air strike

    are any of these bikes any good or do u kinda get what u pay for?...
    if not what are some other options?

    my budget is 200-350
    im 5'11 - 175lbs
    and im pretty much gonna be riding to work and back and going to the skate park to mess around and learn some tricks. im not gonna be doing flatland tricks and not gonna be racing but occasionally dirt jumps.

    any suggestions would be great
    thanks

    not sure if im aloud to do this, but i have a complete bike for sale for 250. Its an FBM Night Train thats green. Its a 20.75TT so itll fit you fine im 5'11" myself. I paid close to 200 for just the wheels. For just getting from point a to point b its a solid bike. check my sig for more information or just ask me.

    No, you can't do that. But I live like 20 minutes from you.
