Hello, I'd like to get into BMX and want to use something better than my crappy Next. I recently found a DK Cleveland at Walmart and it apparently has chromoly which I know is good for a bike. I know I should be buying from a bike shop but for at this price I haven't found anything better. I could buy a better bike but unfortunately building my PC is my #1 priority. Here's the bike: http://www.walmart.com/ip/DK-Cleveland-20-BMX-Bike/17012264

Yeah I was happy with mine when i got it, as i broke parts I just replaced them with the strongest thing i could find. i've been riding the same bike (frame at least) for 2 years allot of the stock parts on it i just changed out not because they broke but just because they didn't suit my style. I think you'll be very happy with it, especially if you like dirt riding

but the one gripe i had on this bike aside from the green which i didnt like was the rims, their single wall. which sucks. aside from that its a good bike. But the dk Dayton has a double wall rim as i remember and its absically the same bike.

oh and its got a pivotal seat so it'll be a nice dk pivotal like you can get off the dk website. and it'll be nicer when you wanna switch it out too, the dk cleveland comes with a zombie railed seat

*btw if you do get the cleveland and chagne the seat can i have the zombie seat if you get one of them? i traded mine at a bike shop and i kinda miss it it just looked cool.

Wow thanks for the help, I'll look into the Dayton. And if I do get the Cleveland and end up changing the seat, you can have the zombie seat. One more thing, I see both bikes are 20", would this be a good size since I'm 5'11"?
