    woah dude, as much as this one is simple , i really X3 loved it ! it's like same bmx but with this "static hopping " witch gives another perspective for riding :D ( dont judge me for my explanations , haha , im just excited about it )


    i think i just decided.
    as much as i wanted front and rear shocks , which seemed to so awesome to ride
    i'll be honest to myself and will buy the closest thing to the type of riding i've used to ride .
    well , i'll keep this post postponed in my bookmarks , because im about to buy it in 2\3 month from now ( just had a crash with my motorcycle , lots of cash suddenly disappeared)


    anyways , any brand suggestions ? i understand that there's different size of wheels?

    I think the bottom line is to find a bike that you like. In your case, the scaled-up BMX bikes like the Specialized P series probably fits what you want best.

    Uh oh. Wrong choice. That's not even a mountain bike. :nono:

    That's a trials specific bike (not "trail" specific) and you will walk faster than riding that thing around. It is horrible for mountain biking and riding in general, unless trials is what you want to do.

    Like you, I had to serve 30 months (2-1/2 years) in the Singapore armed forces. I had fun as a recon for an armored unit riding military motocross bikes and M113s every day. That was 20 years ago before I moved to the US.

    Have to agree with this. What you want, OP, is an AM hardtail like an On-One 456 or a Transition TransAM (which has been stated). Second choice for me would be a DJ hardtail, something like a P series Specialized. The AM hardtail will be reasonably slack for aggressive use but will still be able to be pedaled uphill when you need to. A DJ bike is fun but often can't be run will full length seatposts; for those of us 6' tall that becomes a problem because you can't get your saddle high enough to pedal properly.

    The second bike you posted seems like someone took a frame and put a way too long fork on it. In the real world, that bike would pedal like crap. Stick with something designed around a 4-6" suspension fork and you'll be much happier.
