Care to explain why? Unless you're doing smith grinds on everything, you most likely won't break or bend a heat-treated 3/8" axle.

Most definitely the Buck 99 is not a better bike than the Cincinnati. The General Lee is excellent, but you lose the front brakes, it looks like no pegs... and it doesn't talk about gearing.

For $220.00 the Cincinnati has it all - smaller gearing, 4 pegs, front & rear brakes, and good design.

Of course, if you want to flatland, you get the DK Signal from www.flatlandfuel.com

the general lee is good for dirt jumping but dosent feel to good on street whereas the cincinatti is a good allrounder especially street i have ridden both of them along with a dk dayton, which is far superior the other two.

If you are riding a haro and a dk I say sell one or both of them and get a rockin' bike.
