    So...$302~. That Nirve is on target as far as price with a Haro Nyquist One or an Eastern Traildigger. The Nirve has a better frame and wheelset than other bikes of similar price. What is up with that front brake? Center clamp?

    Tires and frame sat they are trail oriented. I prefer a street geometry...that's just me. It's two years old and they need to move that sucker...go ride it and find out if you like the geometry.

    A bmx frame is pretty hard to break. You can trail ride or skatepark ride anything if you try hard enough. But having the right tool for the job is where it's at. If you will be riding more trails, go for it, if you'll be riding more skatepark, maybe look elsewhere.

    1 more question?
    Can anyone define trails (do they include dirt jumps e.t.c)

    $305 But its Half Price it's meant to be $533,

    (P.S thanks for that other post (forgot your name))

    Thx

    Helpful post...the prices are in British pounds not Euros. Speaking of spelling, know is spelled know not no.

    It is a deal for a dirt jumper. Most street/park frames have a higher center of gravity built in them with a higher bb. Even running a bigger chainring like a 39/14 or 36/13 the bottom bracket on a street frame will be less likely to hit dropping in. Add a 25/9 or 30/11 and you are even better off.

    Dirt jumpers have a lower center of gravity to help push you through the rhythms. Many dirt jumpers also are short in the toptube too. Trails = dirt jumping. The frame will hold up just fine in a skatepark, as stated by snaky69 "...having the right tool for the job is where it's at."

    On that site your best bet is the Stolen Getaway or the Goblin for 169.99. The Goblin is a little lighter but I don't know the size on either one. Good Luck.
