    premature mid life crisis.?

    Hi guys new member of the forum and dirt jumping community. long story short i've been riding downhill as well as mini bikes for years and decided to buy my first 24" s/s dj bike at 28 haha. She's in the form of a DMR Transition 24.

    Reason behind it is i'm 5 mins away from a nation 4x track (with trails on site) and an indoor skate park just opened not far away... also i have a local friend with a field on a hill we can dig up! we'll see how i can hurt myself on this one

    really pleased with the bike, bought locally for what i think was a sensible price and super clean- hope to get involved on here and with the local scene

    here's the bike anywho

    Right on. Welcome. That's a DMR Transition 24", then, right? Looks good.

    Not to be confused with a TRANSITION Bikes bike. . . . ; )

    Nah, the DMR is a rad bike. I was just puzzled for a while--I thought I knew about all the Transition bikes, and I was like, they made a 24"????? . . . . and then ohhh yeah. I think you'll like 24"s for the indoor skatepark especially.

    Sweet bike! You'll have a good time... its never to late to start shredding Dj and park! I've basically stopped riding MTB because I love it so much now! But riding different styles will make you a better all around rider! Look Geoff gully....

    Went for my first spin on her today at Rush skate park. Managed a few nose wheelies and main thing I stayed on, hit the foam pit when its a bit quieter haha.

    Bikes rides lovely, started looking at parts for her already

    Cheers guys!

    yeah we're especially lucky where we are in the uk too, redhill 4x is even closer which is the one i'm really keen to have a go at but they're closed for winter now


    a few of us washed up mini bikers were looking into opening something last year till they all started popping up locally lol
