If you really got your mind set on a smaller bike, possible 18 inch? 16 will do you no good. But they are damn fun if your small enough.

Wait is it possible to get it sent in parts? Like would Danscomp do that? Also, what would be a cheap complete that would be good for me?

Order a complete. Take it apart, then put it back together. Problem solved.

Well, everything but both wheels, brakes, and lever should be here tomarrow. Dan's kinda screwed me on the rims because they were suppose to be in on the 13th, but I called and now the won't be in until sometime in September. I cancelled just the wheels, and ordered them from Empire. So, besides the brakes and lever, should have a complete bike by next Friday at the latest.

I'm happy for you. That's so cool, except for what Dan's did. It's better to get your wheels from Empire anyway. I've heard of a bunch of problems from Dan's custom wheels and you can get better spokes from Empire. Hopefully I will have my bike back sometime next week.

2008 Kink Gap
https://www.danscomp.com/101657.php?cat=BIKES#

2007 DK 6 Pack
https://www.danscomp.com/101073.php?cat=BIKES

Those are my options that i'm looking at if anyone else knows any.

That is such a nice bike Fed3ral.

And Punx, just go with the 6-Pack. I would say the Kink Whip, but it's not full chro-mo.

The total was $1592.32 That's with a 10% discount. And I do realize I'm just repeating myself, should have just put up a link.

It was from Dan's. There's a code every so often that you can get 10% off your entire order.

Eh. I love the look of the Kink Whip too! Thats the reason, like and it looks pretty lightweight. Which one would be lighter the Kink or the 6 Pack, and what do you mean full cromo? Is there any way i could get the 10% Discount off?

Why is it awful though, i never can snap a frame in the next like 5 years though, if it's weight, but the Kink looks like a lot lighter then the 6 pack.
