Bike Weight An Issue?

I am new to the bmx scene and i am going to buy a Dk Six Pack for my first bike. I saw that this bike weighs 32 pounds. I was wondering since i am 5 foot 3 inches and 100lbs will this bike be too heavy for me? Or, will i eventually get used to it and be able to hop a good height? I would highly appreciate everyone's opinion on this.


Thankyou to all those who respond to this newbie question.

Also, I plan on using this bike for street and park, and maybe a little dirt.

Don't worry about the weight. You'll get used to it after a few days of riding.

look around more, you might find something better. Did you actually sit on the DK, if not you might want to find out how.

I am going to test ride it at a bike shop later today. Hopefully they will have DK's. They should have them because i went on the Dk website and i tracked a dealer that is supposed to sell them. The other few LBS's that i went to only had haro bikes for some reason and i dont really like them.

Whatever your age is you should act it, which you clearly are not.

But there is a program for acting your age called 'boot up the ass.exe.'

Obviously it hasn't been installed on you yet.

I don't buy it. You signed up that you were born in 1990. Either you can't count, or you chose the wrong birth date.
