    DJ for Trail riding

    Hello guys, Im currently riding a full suspension giant and am looking for somthing diffrent, the first bike i rode on was a canondale f5 and from that i switched to the Giant Yukon i have now. ive been doing some looking around and have been looking at the dj bikes, ive wanted to have a single sped bike for some time now and was wondering if, with maybe some changes to gearing or whatever may be needed, the DJ bikes would be a good bike for trails, i live in florida and we have techincal trails with some straight sections and uphills downhills i fell its a rather good mix of obsetcals

    i would first go to your LBS and test a few out. there are a few different options with certain series of frames, which is mainly rigid or suspension fork. i personally like a suspension fork on djs but i have been running a rigid for some time now.

    you can always test out say a p series bike and go from there. most dj frames feel the same to me so i go for the frames that are a stronger material and have a shorter chainstay
