    Noob looking for dirt/street bike

    Hi, I'm looking for a bike that I will use for dirt/trails, street and maybey a little jumping. I know you guys hate these threads but I'm realy confused what is a "good" bike. My price range is around $200-$270, I know alot of you think bikes in this price range are trash but it's all I can afford. I only way about 104 lbs. so I'm guessing frame strength won't be a huge issue but I don't know. The bikes I am considering are the dk Step Up, General Lee, Cincinnati and Redline RL series. I also like the mongoose brawler and dk eight pack but I'm not sure on the quality or the weight of these bikes. This will be my first real bmx bike so any help will be appreciated.

    The DK Eight-Pack would probably be your best bet out of those choices.

    How much does the eight pack weigh, will the eight pack's weight be an issue for some minor/medium jumping?

    pointless to worry about stock weight. eventually youll swap the heavy stock parts for lighter, better ones.

    I was just wondering what your thoughts are on MirraCo bikes? I was looking at the Icon Intro, option and Signature signature. Are these bikes any better than the dk eight pack, cause the option has 4130 cromo.

    Cool, that was what I was thinking too, but would you choose it over the dk eight pack?

    That's up to you really. Whichever one you like better they have specs that are similar.
