    Canon Stitched 360 as beginner's dirt jumper

    Hi,

    I have decided to get myself a dirt jump bike to practice my basic skills (manual, bunny hop, endo etc) and for general fun as well. I'm not going to use it for big dirt jump lines or other very heavy use.

    The second-hand market for dirt jump bikes isn't very good where I live, so I'm mostly looking at brand new bikes.

    I'd like a bike with both front and rear brake, for example Canon's cheapest dirt jumper: https://www.canyon.com/en-gb/mountai...-360/2366.html

    What do you think of this? Would it be a good choice as my first dirt jump bike?

    Best regards

    You can look for BMX bikes too. If anything, try to find a 24" BMX cruiser bike if you cannot find a used DJ. It's almost the same thing as a DJ. The chainstay will be a little shorter than a DJ but it will do the same thing.

    You can practice your basic skills on a mountain bike too. It could be better to practice on your own mountain bike so you can build up the feel while on the primary bike you plan to ride.
