A Little Imput Please

Hey everyone...well there really is no way around this so I'll just get right to the point. I need help chosing a BMX. I know you guys hate these kinds of threads but I have tried to do some research and what not to try to narrow it down. I need your help though because I actually know nothing about BMXs. Anyhow I'm guessing this is what you guys need to know...

I ride mainly park and street (more park then street).
I'm 6' and 170lbs.
My budget is around $300 CND.
I will most likely be ordering off of Dan's Comp. (by the way are they reliable? has anyone ordered from them before?)
If you need to know anything else just ask and I'll try and answer quickly

So these are the ones that I have narrowed it down to...imput welcome...

DK Six Pack
2Hip Bizzle
Eastern Traildigger
Kink Whip
Stolen Stereo
We The People Reason

If you guys could just help me out to narrow these down or recomend some different ones then by all means please do. Thanks in advance for your help!

You can't get a good BMX for 300cad.

I know that...but thats the most I'm gonna be able to spend on a BMX. I don't really ride that hard so I don't need anything amazing. Out of those which would be the "best" or "most bang for your buck"?

Also has anyone ordered off of Dan's Comp before?

I've bought from Dan's before, and they've got pretty good service. Don't worry about that.

So I've pretty much narrowed it down to either the DK Six Pack or the Kink Whip. If you guys would be able to give me an option on each of them (prehaps pro's and con's for both) that would be awesome. Thanks again.
