    i was wondering which bike would be better ?
    DK 4 pack or DK ordinate?
    my price range is $250-$300.

    The 4-Pack is better than the Helio.

    I bet they're about the same weight. I looked at the specs of both bikes, and the Helio, surprisingly is a better bike in some ways. The better parts of it are the micro-gearing and the bigger bars. But the 4-Pack has better cranks on it.

    i like micro gearing.i actually like the gear ratio on the helio because i want a smaller sprocket and smaller driver.i will check my local bike shops instead of buying my bike from danscomp.ill check out the price on a smaller sprocket for the 4-pack.whichever bike shop has the bike or for a good price.

    It seems like it. Check the specs for both of them.

    Iv never was a fan of DKs but I know alota people that love them. And also with that price range it realy limits the bikes you can get. The Eastern 9 volt bike looks pretty good and its only $325. And also the haro 540, there like $450 but there amazing
