    Take a look over here Mountain bike news, photos, videos and events - Pinkbike under the buy and sell. You will find a nicer used bike for $800 or less then you would looking for a new bike.

    So what happened? That Avanti is not available either? Or you just want to compare to other bikes?

    You're basically not going to get a new good brand geared dirt jumper with quality fork and parts for under $800. You could get a used one though.

    Here's the Trek Ticket, MSRP $1260:
    Ticket Exchange - Trek Bicycle





    2012 Giant STP -- $1600 approx

    yup... they are not cheap. I paid $900 for my 2007 new. I really like my 2012 STP but it is pricey. 1600 is retail, you can get one for 1400 cash all day.... if ones available

    I got myself the 08 Derelikt type 2 with a 2011 abd frame 2nd hand for $600 NZL, similar specs to what you were looking at in basically new condition so yeah I'd say go for 2nd hand but maybe check it out first and also tighten everything. Managed to snap the crank shaft off on mine because i didn't tighten it but was an easy fix.
