The 2014 Dk raven.. was it worth the buy? entry level i know.. because i entered! XD

The Good:

Its a nice bike, if you're just starting out in BMX i'd recomned this bike.. it has a nice light frame with nice road tires which is great for the street where i live (Belize)
i was surprised how light it is after riding for the 1st time, i like how it feels on the streets..feels like a beginner bike, which it is, but feels better other beginner bikes I've rode. plus the weight is excellent for learning tricks.

The Bad:

I don't know how the bike will stand up to high stress activities since i haven't ridden it much since i got it, reason being is that i guess DK put some faulty drivers on their entry level bikes, but i'm expecting cinema hubs and rims soon.. also the tires are great but perhaps they're a bit thin.. i got a puncture on my first ride, maybe i can fix that with new tires or just some tire liner. also its not a sealed bike but don't expect to have sealed everything on a entry level bike.. and i have problems with the stem, by bars would move out of place after landing.. so i guess i'd have to change that if it keeps happening after i fix my rear end.. or maybe it's just because its new?

Overall Review:

i'll know if its a good bike after i get some more riding in.. like i said my rear hub was destroyed less than a month of fair riding, but it feels good, feels solid.. looking forward to getting it fixed soon.. ordered a new cinema rear wheel from danscomp and some pegs but my place of living makes the delivery process forever and a little bit difficult since i have to use a 3rd party.. but it's a good bike, i wanna upgrade to the x model or even Helio just because i dig DK that much..
