    New question here. Need buying advice!PLEASE help:)

    Hi everybody!
    I am saving for a new bike.I am planning on buying a mini DH bike or a bigger suspension AM bike.I am planning on getting the bike next year.I will have obout 2200-2800$.I am a begginer and currently have a hardtail with 120mm of travel.I really love DH and whant to get a DH capable bike that doesnt have more than 180mm of front travel.I dont know if when I am going to buy the bike get a 900-1500$ bike and learn the basics on it and then in a year or two buy a entry level DH bike after selling the previous one.Or should I just go and buy the more expencive DH bike?
    P.S Iam only 14 but know quite a bit obout DH.

    Any DH trails (actual downhill, lift accessible, something you would need a full blown DH rig on) near you? If not, you'd be much better off with a 5-6" travel trail/AM bike. Another thing to consider, will you be using the bike as more of an all-purpose go up/down/everywhere bike, or strictly DH?
