    DJ Bike?

    Saw a post the other day about converting to a dj bike or something, just got the wheels turning and i thought hey i need one of those! My all mountain type bike is getting too specialized to cover urban and jumping as well. I searched craigslist and...nada. So if anyone know of a Dj bike for sale (you know fixed speed, 4" fork, hard tail, that type) for around 200$ i think i could scrounge up some bday money and maybe sell some stuff to cover it, thanks!

    Trust me I understand the whole budget thing...im always in the same boat. But $200 is not realistic for a dj bike. I can see 400 but probably not 200. I built together a dj bike on a budget, and actually ended up getting alot of it for free, but you could probably put one together for around 400 if you look around.

    I picked up a complete DJ bike off craigslist shipped for under $200. I think I had a 10 or 20% off coupon so at auction end it was really about $240 I think. It wasn't the greatest but it got me onto a DJ bike.

    $200 isn't realistic for a bike with a front fork. I recently sold a Commencal MaxMax for $300, but it was rigid.

    A 24" or 26" fully rigid from a BMX brand would be a good alternative.

    check pinkbike

    or there is a guy out of puru that will hand build you a frame and fork for 120 USD. A lot of us trials guys (destroyers of frames and parts) are standing by his frames.

    pinkbike sucks because those canadians never want to ship across the border. and the forums are populated by a bunch of 12-year-olds.

    You'll end up with a hunk of garbage for $200, youre better off saving up to like $500 then looking. Theres deals on djs but nothing really around $200. Get a bmx off CL and that will at least get you out there.
