The Malaga is a flatland bike; oh, and for the love of God, don't support Dan's.

It'd feel a bit awkward for dirt and street, but then again I also rode a 19.75" Warpig for park and trails for 4 years so I'm a bit conflicted on that. As for Dan's, it's better to support your local shop or a mailorder that's actually run by riders (ex: Empire, Albes, Staff, Flatland Fuel) than a company owned by a large corporation, not to mention that Dan's has been shady to plenty of people (myself included) throughout its history.

I feel like everyone has some sort of 'beef' with Dans, ive never had any trouble, and its the mailorder that my mom feels most comfortable using her credit card on...
Their website is more 'professional' or maybe mature? I dont know, its just more appealing to parents?
Ive never had any trouble, and i dont know of anyone that has, except what ive heard on forums...


Beerman, im not saying you didnt have trouble, i just dont get why everyone takes them for granted...

The shops around me, with the exception of one, that is mobile, and run by a local racer, all dont cary any bmx parts except tubes and completes.

They can get just about every brand, but they dont carry anything stock.
