Hi.
Which of the following would you buy?

2015 Sunday Pro
2013 Premium Spire
2013 Haro 500.1

The Spire will cost me about $130 more then the 500.1.
The Sunday Pro will cost me ~$0-$250 more then the Spire.

Comparison on vitalbmx (comparing all three, but doesn't have the geometry of the 2013 models)
Comparison on gearsuite (only of the 2013 models, but with thier geometry)

Any other bike from empirebmx.com or albes.com is also an option.
Building a custom is also another option, but I'm a beginner so I figured buying the best complete I can find would be better/easier. What do you think?

Thanks!

I would go with the Haro.
building custom would be more expensive new. A complete is a good choice for a beginner.

Can you please explain your choises?
What are the actual differences between them that matters?
What are the 3/8 drop outs that you've mentioned? Is it good or bad? By the way, on the "Comparison on vitalbmx" link I gave it says that the Sunday has 14mm dropouts (and it doesn't have a dropouts value for the other models)

The rear hub mentions a 3/8th inch bolt. Its not as common as 14mm and may not be as strong.
The Haro has everything you need like dobule walled rims, sealed bearings, chromo frame/fork/bars.

With the Premium, The only real difference I see are the tires, the chain, and the Premium brand which does not justify the $130 difference to me.

With the Sunday , It's pretty higher end with the Thunderbolt cranks the chase hark tires, the Quadrant rims, and the Sunday name. It might be worth the extra ~~$250 but you might not need to get those parts in the very beginning.

:/ If I'm wrong someone tell me

If the sunday pro ranges from $0-$250 more than the spire and I could get it around the same price I would go for it but the haro will do just fine as cro tec mentioned
