Which bike to get?
I don't know which bike to get. I have been looking at the Kona Shred and the Cannondale Chase 3 The things that have me torn on the Kona is that I can't test ride it. Do you guys think that the chain would come off when I jumped or bunny hop with it? My only problem with the cannondale is that it doesn't have a front brake. Do I really need a front brake? Im gonna be doing everything with this bike such as downhill, jumps, drops and street. The bikes are only about a $10. Thanks in advance.

If you are going to be doing downhill, street and drops then you definitely need a front brake. The front brake does 80% of the work.

Oh, if they are only $10 I would go ahead and buy a few of them. ;)

Go with the kona forsure. One of my friends brook 3 chase frames in 4 months (all on warrenty) right by the headtube.

I'm with lowcel. Get as many as you can afford of both for 10$. Then mark them up and sell them.
