I have it down to two bikes I'm looking at...

Which is better?

DK Cincinnati
Or
DK Eight-Pack?

That is for you to decide. Ride everything you can and decide from there.

I figured I'd get an answer like that, lol. We dont have a good bike selection around here tho.

I mean... quality of bike, because a lot of people know a good amount on here, so I wanted their opinions.

IMHO the Eight Pack is the better bike. The Cincinati is a Hi Ten frame and the Eight Pack is a Cro-Mo main frame. So basically the Eight Pack is a stronger frame that will hold up and last longer.

Thanks, I appreciate it.

If they don't have the bike here at a local place, I'm probably just going to order it online

Call Empire Bikes in Austin, Texas, they are the leaders in BMX. Their website is www.empirebmx.com. They will know what is good and what is not good...if you are looking to do some serious dirt or street riding, I would look to S&M or Standard, their frames can take a beating.
