i disagree, id say go with the el2 because its a good bike for entry level and intermediate riders that will take a beating, unlike the haro which i personally destroyed in 4 weeks.

I won't comment on either since I haven't ridden either. I think that for the money DK has some really good prices on completes.

On a side note: Haro Bikes are not available online. It is illegal for any bike shop to sell them online in the USA, which is why you don't see their bikes (complete) at danscomp.com or other shops. They can only be sold in person at bike shops. It is Haro's way of protecting the home town bike shop.

Haros are only good bikes for a little while. Personally, I started out on the F3, then got an F4 and now ride a custom with all brands on it.
