    Would any Sette frames make good dirt jumpers?

    Would Reken frames make good dirt jumpers?

    Was looking at SC Chameleon to get into it but at $600.

    Could the frame handle light djs?

    Sette Shadow but they are not in production anymore. I believe they are still coming out with frames. I think...

    The Reken is an XC frame and not made for harsh abuse that DK offers.
    I give positive rep all around but then I get negative rep from all the clowns.

    Do not DJ on a XC frame. Wrong Geo and not strong enough. Do not get gears and a long stem on a DJ frame and think you can Xtreme-XC on it. That is just stupid. Though, if you are thinking about doing either of these, you probably suck at both. 3 foot DJs are small; but overshoot the **** out of one and that AL XC bike may snap and your nuts/spleen/femur/jaw/shoulder/ancle/skull may feel the brunt results.

    The Sette Shadow is an amazing 4X frame that jumps with the best of them. I have always been impressed with that thing. Figured it'd take me 20 minutes to snap it. Never did. Sold it cheap to a buddy who rides 2x bigger and is 2x bigger...figured he'd snap it in 10 minutes. 2 years later and he keeps it as an extra now for friends to ride. That thing is in mint condition. I spent $100 or less and it is amazing. I never trusted anything from Sette; and they no longer make anything I'd ride; but if you can find one of these at $100 frame price; BUY IT!!
