quicky

im a 6' 3" 140lb kid who wants to do some dirt jumps yet also take it into town and mess around. looking to spend no more that $350 due to the fact that im a beginner so to speak. i will most likely do more dirt than street. ive been looking at the dk six-pack and the haro backtrail x3. anyone got anything better for my size or are one of these alright?
any help will be appreciated :]

thanks.

If I were you, I'd go with the Stolen. You are very tall, and the Stolen has a bit of a larger toptube which will give you more room.

Your buddy is an idiot if he told you Dk's are crap. The six pack, or the wrap would be fine.

I think your buddy is an idiot. DK is a great complete bike company. Fit also has good completes, especially the 'Flow' series. I wouldn't go for the Stolen.
