    New question here. Advice on budget AM hardtail.

    Hi, I would like to buy a hardtail soon. I'm looking to ride average single black trails, want to bunnyhop, learn trials and small-medium jumps/drops. What pricepoint range (USD) should I look at around or what fork and wheel combination would be good enough to withstand such abuse while keeping the price to as little as possible. I value durability much more than performance. Would appreciate your advice.

    Charge cooker midi 1 quite simply the most ridiculous value for your money. I don't know if you can find it online, I know they had them new at some point for like 600-700 ish. I'm sure you can find it used. Really solid bike.

    Probably a number of them. Since you gave no number, I will suggest (as a hardtail lover myself) that you will need to spend around $1000. Giant and Kona have some excellent mikes in this range. If you can make it to $1500 you will be into a great bike with great equipment. Giant Fathom and Kano big Honzo are good examples. You will need to choose between 27.5 or 29. If you are newer, you may do better with a 27.5 with bigger tires. This is simply my opinion...

    Adding to my last post, you will want an air fork and hydraulic disc brakes.
