flat land on a dk

can i do flatlan on a dk cincinnati...? and also can someone define them for me, i searched the forums and all that jazz but i couldn't find a thread that answered what i was asking, the difference between

*flatland

*street

those two i haven't learned the difference between, which is the question i guess. is there a difference between those two so much so that i cant do flatland on a cincinnati? which i was told at the bike store that it was a street bike.

i think i know the third kind are the ones with one brake, and are dirt bikes, for like dirt jumping etc. not what i want to do.

help?

To do flat land, you'd want the bike to have 4 pegs instead of 2. You could do flat land on a street bike, and viceversa it wouldn't be that big of deal, just the geometry of the frames for flatland and street are a bit different.

The geometry is incredibly different, not just a bit.

You can do some flatland with that bike, but you arent even sure if it's flatland you want to do, are you?

i really just wanted to knoe if i had bought a limited bike... if there is such a thing as a limiting bike. and if i needed to get another bike if i wanted to start learning flatland. but i have four pegs on a dk cincinati which the guy at the store said was a street bike. ... and i was thinking a street bike was a lot more heavy then a flatland bike. but if thats not the case then i just need to get stronger.

If you want to seriously do both, then you need two bikes cuz flatland is way different than anything else and it's very hard to do flatland + anything else on one bike.
