$250!? Good luck with that. They all look tiny, but if it's your size I'd go with the lightest which I think is the Stolen Riot (incredibly stupid name though unless it's a reference to something (?))

Just from reading the names I'm going to say the Nova. And isn't the Stolen Riot a pretty tiny bike, like, 19"TT?

EDIT: Get the Slauson, full cromo frame.

My friend was planning on getting the integral, but he kind of gave up riding and never got it, so I didn't get a chance to see if it's nice or not. It sounds pretty good from the specs though.

If that's all the money you can muster up, get the Integral- it's the only bike with a full chromoly frame. If you can get some more money flowing, to step yup your price range around $300, you could get a DK Six Pack or Stolen Wrap which are very good bikes for the price.

Then just get the Integral; it's an excellent bike for the pricetag.

Another vote for the Integral. Of the bikes you've listed, it's your best choice.

He just said he can't, besides, the Integral is good enough for him now and isn't even that bad of a bike.

And learn to type properly, it's on the terms and conditions of this site to type and spell correctly, if you do not abide by that simple rule you can be banned.

Why cant you use proper punctuation?

The Integral is fine.

I'm trying to be nice. I don't want to ban someone on my first full day on the job. For all of you guys, please try to use proper spelling and grammar so I don't have to sound like your nanny and remind you guys everyday in every thread.
