    Pinn'r or Bam I

    Looking to get back into freeride and I've narrowed it down to these two bikes. Yes, I have looked at used bikes and don't want to go through the hassle of buying used again. My buddy is sponsored by Mongoose and has the Boot'r Tour and loves it. I also think the Jamis Bam I looks pretty good too. What do you think is better for the price?

    i have no opinions, never ridden either, and dont really care about either, so i'd go mongoose, but thats based off of nothing.

    I rode one of the BAMs that my buddy rented at mount snow and it was a pretty dam good bike. This was the Bam 2 with the single crown but it was definitely a solid bike that looks like it could take some abuse.

    Why even post an opinion based on nothing?

    My buds got a Pinn'r.Tried his bike before I. About 15 min into the ride and I felt very comfortable on it. The bike pedals well for a 7" on the flats. Harsh landing felt bottomless. The one highlight on the bike though is how it's easy to pop off jumps, less effort to get off jumps compared to my demo7. And those funky links look way better in person. Don't buy into that walmart bike crap. It's a sick bike IMO.
