I just got out of motocross recently and was looking to buy the best bang for the buck full suspension bike. I am new to f/s moutain biking but have messed around on small jumps with my hardtail and bmx bike. I have a budget of about $700.
I am going to do a lot of jumping and drops. I will be starting out small but i will most likely quickly progress into 4-5 feet of air on landings and flat ground ( i am used to jumping 15+ feet on a dirt bike, so i will probably progress into bigger air very fast)
I have been looking around online at bike prices and reading reviews. The first option i found was the Ibex Ignition 2 but later on i found the Iron Horse Yazuka Aniki which i think will be better for jumping sincce it is a freeride bike. I have read in many places that the Ignition 2 requires almost constant adjustments/maintenance and i am relatively new to the mechanics of a mountain bike.
Basically i am looking for a good, solid jumping f/s bike less that $700. I do realize that i will be getting low end components but thats fine since i am looking for the best jumping components under $700. Also i would like to have a bike that is easily upgradeable to say better, longer shocks.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated,
1 more thing that i forgot:
I am 16 and 5'10" 150 lbs.
Just so you know for shock stiffness and any other reasons.
