That is a nice freestyle uni... You should get something stronger for street. If you want to do really small technical street/ flatland then it would be good but you don't want to jump sets or any drops at all.

Well the torker DX is the cheapest splined uni and it has 127 cranks so thats good for street riding...the DX and the qu-ax are the two most affordable ones. Koxx, kh/onza and profile are better but more money.
