    Buy or Build Dirt Jumper?

    I'm thinking of getting a dirt jumper. The bike I have right now is a Giant Talon 29er. It's a great bike but I'm wanting to get into tricks. I may also learn a bit of trials biking. Would you recommend buying a complete bike or building one? (I don't want the prices to get too crazy)

    It's usually a lot cheaper to buy a complete bike than to build one up from parts unless you are extremely patient and buy a lot of used parts. The cheapest way to go is to buy a used bike, if you can find what you are looking for.

    A 29er dirt jumper? Does such a thing exist?
    Assuming it's a 26er you want, if you live in a largish town/city, there are always lots of dirt jumpers for sale. I'd pick up used. The local buy and sell is full of them.

    It's a nice bike but I'm not sure if I want a 26". What is your opinion on 24" dirt jumpers?
