    Have you checked out what your local shops have to offer?

    Nothing wrong with going and just taking a look, then come back and research the brands you see there.
    If your shop doesn't have, and won't sell you the bike you decide on, you can always get it online from http://www.danscomp.com, http://www.flatlandfuel.com or some similar place.

    I think the DK Signal is a flatland bike, not the six pack though.

    Seriously, i think mirra rides a S&M. I saw one of those got milk? ads in a magazine and he had beringer bars and a pitchfork.i didn't get a look at his frame, but i doubt that he rides the same frame that comes on the complete bike. I know, he can have as many of those frames as he want's because he gets them for free, but I don't think he rides a haro.

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter what he rides, it won't make you a better rider.

    its true that its the rider, not the bike that makes the difference, but still, what kind of a moron thinks that mirra rides a mongoose, he has his own signature bnike and frame series from haro. as far as good bikes go eastern jane's good, dk 6 pack is pretty good, if you get the fit team replica ur good dont bother with any thing less than that from fit. no huffys, i hate huffy with a passion.

    first off i was joking.

    Secondly, i know he has his own signature haro frame, but i said i don't believes he rides it. I know that it's the rider, but that bike is ****ty. Also, as i said, i have seen a got milk advertisement and he had beringer bars, not his signature bars

    Just like Nyquist, he rides the exact same frame as his pro model, except it was produced in the US rather than Taiwan. Mirra rides S&M Beringer Bars - not Haro Mirra Bars, which have been made to have the same geometry - after Matt Beringer forced him into using them several years ago.

    Because now that I've said what is correct, they should just shut up about it anyway, so I don't have to get confirmation from people who actually know the guy/his Ride UK bikecheck from last year/my personal knowledge, and then shut them down.
