Rice: READ THIS...

Why the DK Cincinnati kicks the Mosh to the curb...

1. The DK has both front & rear brakes
2. The DK includes 4 pegs, not 2
3. The DK includes front brakes
4. The DK uses a smaller front sprocket (39 tooth) (I believe the Mosh does not)
5. The DK uses a smaller freewheel (14 tooth) (I believe the Mosh does not)
6. The DK mounts the rear U-Brakes on the seat stays (high)

Now, the DK weighs .5 pounds more - but that is the weight of the two extra pegs & front brakes. Remove them and you have a bike that weighs LESS.

Check eBay:
https://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...109447973&rd=1

Also search Google for good prices on new bikes - I saw a shop offerring the Mosh Lux 3 Star for about 200 bucks, that may be worth it.

I have to agree with bmxtrix, get the cincinnati, its a much better bike. I haven't rode it or anything but I was looking at bikes a few months ago and I looked a lot of stuff, and I wanted to get that.
