    why did you select these two out of the masses of bikes available? maybe you can help people out and say a little bit more about what you want either on the bike, or out of the bike, so we know what to recommend more.

    If you're just doing street riding, get a 24 inch BMX and save a ton of money. The hardball doesn't jump at all.
    I'm out of things to say . . .

    the difference between a 20 incher and a 24 incher is huge. It will ride like a BMX, but won't feel like a BMX. The smoothest DJer I've seen DJ is a BMXer.

    The Hardball was something I was looking at, until I test rode it. I mean it doesn't come off of the ground.

    I can confirm this. The hardball should be avoided.
