Q: Hey BMXperts, First off, my name is Ally, I’m 14, and yeah, I am a girl. I’m writing to ask you if you know of any good reliable websites that sell DK Siklons. I’ve been saving up for it for about a year, but I need a good place to get it from, and there aren’t any shops where I live. Thanks, I love your magazine.
A: Ally, we like your style and the Siklon is a great choice of bike, especially if money is tight but you don’t want that fact to hold back your riding too much. So you are a girl, we can dig it, and you are young, a great time to start, so the only thing we might change about your dilemma is where you are shopping. While getting bikes and parts online is a great way to save a few bucks, if this is your first bike then we would strongly suggest you find a local shop that sells DK’s and do your shopping there. Even if you end up spending a few extra bucks off of the top, it’s worth it to have a friendly shop to return to for help and possibly a free tune up or two, depending on their purchase policy. Good luck and once you get some ride time under your belt and can mentally ride a bike just by looking a its angles and measurements, then you are ready to shop online.
