Are DK bikes any Good ?

I had a GT dyno a few years back and would like to get back in too the BMX scene i know alot has change over the past couple years so.

I just want something simple that i can ride street and maybe do some flat land with i was looking at this bike on DansComp.com becuase i like the style of it would it be a solid choice ? -

http://www.danscomp.com/101062.php?cat=BIKES

I would spend up to $500 if i needed 2 but i dont need anything crazy i will be swapping out parts anyway once i get the bike. I haven't paid attention to the bmx scene for a long time so any info on whats the best out now and qaulity parts would be great.

Thanks in advance.

I would not buy it. How small are you? There are some decent small completes out this year. Mirraco has some worth looking.

That bike is wayyy too small for you unless you're like 3'. Haha I don't know if you noticed but it's a 16" bike.

No one has said to get the dk 6 pack in a while. When i was looking for a bike, i must have seen you guys mention the 6 pack about 100 times to everyone.

DK actually started calling the 6-Pack the DK Helio. No idea why, I guess they needed a change. The whole line has new names.
