Are you kidding about the 2 foot bunny hop? Alot of people that ride street bmx for real can't even do that.

If i where you, i would get the Kink Gap. It has an all chromoly frame and has 3 pc. cranks.

And for the bunnyhop thing i would hope to get 6 inches.

The Kink Gap would be the most sturdy and will last a long time. The Dk Fury looks okay for the price... It is the lightest, but the Gap will last longer... I am not 100% sure because i have never ridden any of these bikes before. If you want it cheap i would go with the General Lee. The Lee has 3 pc cranks and little bit of chromoly. Just go with the Lee if you want a DK. I suggest you go to your LBS and try some out yourself.

actually, the gap is only 1 ounce heavier then the fury, so thats good. so i guess its between the general lee and the gap...thats a tough one cause the general lee is 40 bucks cheaper

If you want something that will last get the Gap. I would pay the extra 40$ so you wont have to make repairs later. Also, the Gap will provide better breaking power and there won't be any screwy gyros to mess with. Also, the gap is a lot lighter and it will be easier to bunnyhop and easier to go fast. To lessen that 40$ use this code for 10% off 37j3. It is up to you on which bike you want, but i suggest the Gap.

hmmm.. yeah nobody has black until mid aug. You have three options. 1. Wait until black is back. 2. Go with the red (which looks aight, but black is better) 3. Find a different bike.

I vote for #2. Tell me if you want to find a different bike.
