    900$ in credit

    Hi I just got 900 dollars worth of credit from performance. I love my xc bike and have no problems with it so I'm looking for a full dj/urban bike. The best (rather only) option seems to be the mongoose hardball. Would anyone recommand it or an even better option under 900?

    Bikes sold at performance in your area (i saw your thread on dc street too) are rocky mountain , mongoose. schwinn, gt. iron horse, and there might be a few giants left at the rockville pike store. I say try to see if there is a rockymountain flow from last year that has been discounted into your price range. If there is a giant stp you could get that. I wouldnt reccomend a mongoose or a schwinn. The gts for 07 look pretty good for the money and you might find a decent ironhorse although those will probably be more freeride oriented

    Both those IH bikes suck for urban. Get a Porter or a Flow.

    They're both tall, heavy, and on the long side. They feel very wooden in the urban setting.

    I think you're right about the Porter being discontinued, but you can still find them at a few Performance shops. And they were sweet rides. They looked funky though.

    Performance doesn't carry Specialized...

    naw, you must have ridden a 17 or a 19" my friend (who has a chimpera) rides a 15" for park. rigid fork and everything,actually very flickable. but yea, a little on the heavy side ( 32 pounds)

    werent the porter frames extremly small too ? something like a 20.5 inch toptube on a 12" frame, and the "long" was like 21.3 and a 13.5" frame ?

    IH stopped making the Porter after 05 after Eric went to Haro.

    If you can find one, snatch it up. Bound to be discounted too cause it'll be a year or two old. Sweet bikes.

    The Chimpera and Bakuto are built for trailriding and freeride...they'd suck a lot of ass for DJ or park.

    The iron horse bikes are very heavy as they are similar to the norco shore hardtails for usage. They might be ok but not great. Listen to will he knows what he is talking about.

    Okay folks, read the thread. He has the credit at PERFORMANCE. Therefore the bike has to be from PEFORMANCE.

    Ironhorse, Rocky Mountain, Schwinn, Mongoose, GT, Fuji, and MAYBE some left over Giants.

    mine does absolutly fine for DJ, a little big for park, but I have the 17" frame. why do people keep saying the yakuza hardtails arent going to be good for DJ and park....do you own one ? no. I've been riding it for a little under a month now, only thing thats off about it, is its as beefy as a morphine and weighs a little bit more than 30 pounds.

    Those brands unfortunately don't make a "real" DJ/Park bike.

    Maybe sell your credit to some guy going into the store for like 10 percent off and go somewhere else?

    Actually I forgot about that bike. It's probably your best option. That's the cool looking gold one, right?

    The Morphine is also a freeride rig. Lots of excessive fat for urban/park.

    Stop talking.
