hey,
i'm a biginner to freride bmx, but i have been doing dirt jumping for a while and i need a new bike. a friend sugested a DK. what i want ot now is what makes a DK beter than a Haro, a Hoffman, or a Free Agent? also why does every one dislike Dk's General Lee's so much?

whats the difference between the 4 pack, and the other bikes: the 6 pack and the 8 pack?

The four pack is the top of the range of the three, and the eight is the bottom (guess which I got :( ) and the higher the level, the lighter the bike is. Also, the higher the level of bike, the better quality of parts on the bike, and I think more 4130 cromoly is used on the better bikes.

And I've heard that DKs really take a battering, especially when you first start out. I've had no problems with mine so far.

in my opinion...no.
but you are just a beginner correct...anything would do...except i suggest getting a real decent bike because you will want it to last...that is...if you hang around.

meh,
heard some bad things about haros so i decided to stay away because i was unshure about them, also ther only haros in ontario seem to be the f2's and the f3's, which look cheep, my diamondback is the top of the diamondback line, so it should be good. plus i like its reall short frame becasue i am not that tall so it fits.
