    Starter Bike

    I've been on the sidelines of riding for a while now, my last bike was a BMX bike made by diamondback. Now im looking into getting a bike mainly to have fun on, ramps, stairs, etc. And the occasional off-road riding. Basically a bike to have fun around town on. My friend had a Giant STP and i tried it out while he had it and I liked it.. but is that a good bike to start out on for that kind of riding?

    Any suggestions bike wise would help out a lot. Along with anythign else you might feel the need to share.

    Thanks

    The Giant STP is a dirt jumper/urban/slope style kind of bike. Spot on if you want to continue your BMX career on 26" wheels. But don't think about riding this bike cross country fashion for 2-3 hours on a trail. That is simply not where it rocks.

    Not sure you'll find a capable play bike that also rides well on trails. The required geometries are just so different.
