    how does the KHS DJ 200 (last years with different size wheels) ride?

    is it good at street and Dirt or should i find a deal on another bike?
    btw im a complete noob so tell me why i should or should not and please recomend a hard tail Dj bike thats relatively light. ive currently got a BigHit SPEC and its too heavy and i like hard tails more. im 5 foot 6/7 and weigh about 130-140 pounds.

    Um, it was designed a dirt jumper and DJ bikes typically handle street well too. The price is right on the clearance DJ200s. Get it ride it change what you dont like.

    It does come with a 24" rear, but the frame is capable of taking 26", also the V-brake mounts are ajustable for 24/26 you decide to go that route. The 24 in back is a slightly stronger wheel than a 26, good when you are learning to spin airs and hops, you might like it. I would however lower and stiffen the fork from the get go.

    wheelworld.com has the dj300 for around $550 complete and that has good parts spec and 26 front and rear wheels. The only thing I would do for riding street and dirt is converting to a singlespeed.
