I would like to ride street and vert, but I'm not sure which bike to buy. The GT is cheaper and I can upgrade the tires right away, but I think it is built for dirt jumping. Is there that big of a difference in the setup?

Other bikes I saw were the Haro F3 & F2 and the GT Bestwick.

Let me know what you think.

Can you give me the reasoning behind the Bestiwck choice? The difference in price is only $20, but they look the same to me. I can't find the wieght of the Bestwick, but I heard it was 40lbs and the Free Agent is 32lbs. I would rather have the lighter bike unless there is a huge difference in the parts that I'm not aware of.

Thanks for the help.

Ok, the Bestwick is a PRO. So can you guys tell me why I should get the PRO over the FA?

the bestwick pro is way better the only thing that is like the same on the air strike and bestwick pro is the fact that both are not full chromoly frame, the bestwick pro has a 3 piece sealed crank full chromoly fork 39/14 gearing double wall rims-all that comes on the new 2004 bestwick pro and the air strike is nothing compared to that because it has a 1 piece crank i think a 44/16 gearing and single wall rims the air strike is a very basic beginner bike, the bestwick pro is a higher end beginner bike to intermediate rider or like some people say an entry level bike, higher then a beginner
