    No. Don't buy that. I don't know what the prices are like in Greece, but you're better off saving up until you can afford an entry level bike at a bike shop. At that point, go try out as many as you...

    Huffy Ironman Walmart-special. Despite it's Ironman name (and the M-Dot on the downtube), it was a mountain bike (or mountain bike wannabe...). Its frame also said it was made of "titanium boron...

    I'd suggest paying a little more up front to buy from a shop, especially if you don't know what you're looking for. Gives you the opportunity to try out as many bikes as possible and find the one...

    Pretty much anything from a bike shop at that pricepoint will be spec'ed similarly. Haro is fine...they were a big BMX name a while ago, and though they're not THE name in BMX anymore, they still...
