Dk Cincinnati or Haro F3?

I have searched for a while and narrowed it down to these two and cannot make up my mind. Riding before purchase is not an option for me. Any help would be great.
Thanks

Well, I would suggest the Haro F3 over the Dk mainly because I had an F3 for a year and it was awesome. I had no problems with it whatsoever. And the new 2005 line of F3's even has some upgrades over my 2004 one, so that would also be good for you. I'm still using all of the parts on my current bike that I had on the F3, I just have a new frame and different rear brakes, thats all. But it is a really nice bike for starting out, and I would suggest it to you hands down out of those two you've listed. There are much better bikes out there than the F3 or the DK, but since you've listed those two, then go with the F3. There's my opinion.

That may be true, but everyone has to start somewhere, right? And either of those would be decent starting bikes (even though I'd still recomend the F3). I doubt you could do very much when you first started, but look at what you can do now! I know I totally stunk when I first started, but I kept going at it and I know for myself that I've gotten a lot farther.

about a year ago BMX Plus mag tested the DK Cincinati and the stem didint hold onto the bars...the bars ended up slipping all the way down to the fork...not too good...
id go with the HARO because i have had 2 of their bikes (i am currently running a 03' Nyquist and i never have trouble with it.....

I would go with the dk. I have had good experiences with dk and their products. I have actualy ridden the cinci and liked the feel of it. I don't now how well it would work for dirt but I liked it for street.

Im not a Haro fan mainly because their overrated. They're good but not good. They're overhyped bikes. As for the DK I ride a DK Cleveland(Almost the exact same bike except no front brakes). Im 6'2" It works perfect. Stock parts are okay, But heres one thing the front rim is not cartridge its free balling. It's a good bike, but I recomend you do upgrade it if you get one.
