if you have more money to spend buy a better one. if not, its a pretty good bike for the money. and if u dont mind that its not a full cromoly frame than go for it.

ok calm down there queen. a 3pc crank sealed or not is better than a 1pc crank, cuz 1pc are unsealed anyway. and its trimoly to keep the price down. u no for ppl who dont have a lot of money to spend.

when i had a 1 pc, if i tightened the bb correctly it will not get loose. unsealed 3pc cranks weigh like 4 pounds and they constantly get loose, and the bearings crack. if anyone was to get a complete dk it would be the 4pack or the dayton, or the signal as bmxtrix says

If you like it, get it. What's so wrong about people just buying what they can afford? I have a BMX that cost me AU$500, and a tandem MTB that was AU$12,000. The BMX suits my needs just as well as the tandem does.

What is Au 500 to Us 500? Did you get it complete or did you build it yourself

Right now, around US$400, but you can't make the comparison that simple. I bought a complete used bike, and swapped the brake, grips, and tires.

Haro Group 1 SX 24 cruiser. 2004. I don't think it had been ridden when I got it, and I paid about half of what it cost last year.
