I need to know if the DK "Step Up" bike at www.danscomp.com is any good, see i'm startin to get into the pro tricks and I need a better bike then my Diamondback Viper (yes that's right, i said Diamondback Viper). I need to know if the Step Up is any good.

If you are looking for a new bike there are a lot of factors in getting a "good" bike. First how do you ride? Dirt? Street? Park? Flatland? Freestyle? Race? Next is the bike big (or small) enough for you? Also is it strong enough for you? Frame, Wheels, axles handelbars, cranks, pedals, chain, chainwheel, even stuff like seet matieral have to be tough enough for some riding needs. Next comes weight I find light bikes way easer to ride. This is a very important one because a lot of time streng can mean weightand if you want both sometimes you have to spend a lot of money. Also you don't want to buy a bike you need to replace parts on because that can rack up the cash to. Don't say " I will get the new f3 and put a new wheelset on it after a month." The step up is a nice bike and its only $179 on danscomp.com but how much do you weigh and what can you pull off on your curent bike jrt?

If I were you I would go with a good freestyle bike. They have all four pegs a Brake rotor, front brakes and about any size frame you would need.

There are a lot to choose from. Just about every company you can think of has a freestyle bike. If you ever need any help choosing I would be glad to help.
