Help me choose a bike...

Ok. To start off I'm looking for something to cart myself around campus everyday, going to be locked outside, so nothing too top coin. I've ridden a few 20" bikes before (no names to be mentioned) back in the day, but I'm bigger now. I'm 5' 11" and around 140. I can't stand mtn and road frames, I really don't like the feel of a tall frame. Can you guys recommend me a quality complete around $300ish for cross-campus treks that looks pimp? I'm looking at the DK Six Pack right now, just hoping for some more professional input.

check the fit, kink, and wethepeople completes in that price range.
those companies definitely spec their bikes well and they look pretty good too.
or look used. for the money you might be able to find something even better.

I had no idea we had pro status
Anyway, if you're just going to be commuting back and forth and leaving it outside to rot I wouldn't even worry about wasting money on a full cromo bike, I doubt you'll break a hi-ten bike just riding back and forth and it would save you like $100. Although you may do what I did and get it to commute and then get into learning tricks and you may wish you had done better, but I haven't had any problems with my cromo downtube Haro.
