    My friend races almost at the pro level on 4x, he went to colorodo to special order it.

    And if you notice in roam, the DJ section is all HARD TAILS!!! If I was into free ride I would have full suspension no dought, but hard tail makes you a better rider.

    Anyway, on a calmer note, I am between the Cannondale chase and the Yeti DJ frame, unless someone has a better one?

    I would get short chain stays and a big cockpit made of steel.

    Ya, the yeti DJ has a bigger chain stay than most bikes so it won't really work for me.

    Your "friend' must not be really smart. He could've just clicked here: http://www.yeticycles.com/Dealers/Dealers.cfm

    made a few phone calls and he would've been able to get one. What a waste of a plane ticket...

    Funny, didn't you claim this was you?

    Yeah, tell Mommy and Daddy to cut me a check for $2,000 and you can have my bike!

    I rented a full suspension bike and headed up to whistler for a week, is there a problem with that? And no, I don't want to buy your bike! I said I like to Dirt Jump, not race! And seeing no one here is going to help me out with getting a new frame...

    I'll sell my one-off custom anodized (in a very slightly different shade of black) custom built Addict Cycles DJ for 3 large.

    If you ride hard, you'll likely break an aluminum frame. Aluminum has a limited fatigue life. There is no frame that is absolutely indestructible. If you want to drop a few G's on a frame, Charge makes a Ti frame. No fatigue life, light, terribly expensive.

    The Yeti DJ weighs like 6 pounds. There are lighter frames out there.

    Thanks XSL, I was considering the difference between steel and aluminum, although i hate the look of the steel frames, they all look like BMX bikes. But I don't have enough cash to go over a grand at the time. I am going to do a lot more reaserch, I just made this topic in hopes that somone knew of a perfect DJ frame.

    Racing 4x/dual IS dirt jumping. Nobody said you couldn't dirt jump a 4x bike.

    The Yeti is a great hardtail. You definitely won't be unhappy on it (I've never seen anybody frown riding a Yeti...).

    Go buy one and stop posting.

    You said that dual suspension bikes are inadequate for jumping...

    I DJed on my Kona Coiler. Pictures aren't anything special, but it goes to prove a point.

    why don't we have moderators who will ban this 3 year old? Maybe they can get rid of pantelis as well. The downfall of mtbr draws near...

    Hey kid, stick with your P2 it's a perfectly fine jumping frame. Why don't you built that up with better forks and whatnot. Once you out grow the P2 then you'll have some notch components to transfer to a frame you know damn well you'll like. By that time you'd have been riding enough to know what geo will fit your size and style. Right now people will be referring a shape frame that suits their style. Right now you probably have zero style and are a dead sailor jumping. Quit rushing, you got years to go.

    THe mob and riot share the exact same geometry, only difference is tubing used and weight. So neither is more bmx-ish than the other.

    There is no best frame, so quit looking for it.

    IMO, any lightweight Steel frame with the geometry and features you like will rock on the DJ's, but the bike isn't doing much of the work, the rider is. Give DJ pros a bone stock p.1 or STP and they'll be able to ride it just as well as their high end boutique bike.
