the first one looks better, other than that i dunno. one is an m10, one is an m16. maybe you could research the difference.

 

 

Rebound is Lightning Quick (Unlike a Lot of the Sloppy Shocks Out There, That are Just for Show and about as Useful as a Bulls Backside) hahahha

Do you intend to use this bike as a mountain bike? Or just for rideing around the city and shit? If its the latter get a road bike, they are alot faster.

^ agreed.

 

dubs...it has nothing to do with kids in da burg. kickstands have a nasty habit of falling down by themselves and making you wreck. I only have the tripod on one of my bikes...its a pure, go slow, fixie, style sled.

what a fucking dope job it'd be to design those... i was talking to the cat at the local bike spot (mostly road bikes).. and he was saying not to bother w/ a road bike for commuting types of use.

 

He suggested the trek FX series.. both in terms of cost and versatility.

for the prices theyre going for i could have guessed they were both shit bikes...i dont want to spend more than AU$200 which is like $US150...are you telling me those bikes are shit for that money ?

 

if you think i could do better for the money...show me which one:
