    4x/ jumping bike

    well i just sold my 2 hardtails and have 1200 bucks to work wit, i was gonna buy my friends hower but that fell through.... so i need to decide on a new small travel bike. I am 6'3" and will be using it for mostly dj but some xc or all mountain when i dont feel like pedling the judge.... so basically if it dj well is the main factor ive been lookin at another howler (but they are near impossible to find), a cove hooker (although not sure if the 13.5 frame would be to short) or any other simular bike

    Also alot of the jumps i will be doin are bmx type style so short chainstays are must as short as the howler defintly..... so any suggestions? also ive rode a blur 4x but i wasnt the biggest fan... maybe because it was a large though....

    well if you're sold on a full suspension bike (i'd be riding a hardtail if I were in your spot) you might want to check out the

    Used Turner Rail? Used Iron Horse Hollowpoint MTX?

    There are some good deals here, on www.ridemonkey.com, or eBay. Just keep your eyes peeled.

    A hardtail would be oh-so-much better suited to the type of riding you describe. Smoothness can be learned(and I think it should be), it can only make you better on the big bike. If you want some cush, buy yourself a steel hardtail.

    look for an avent arson. I've seen a few on eBay in the last couple years.

    Or look at this hollowpoint:

    funny you call it a brodie "nemesis" after they changed the name to dissident or something... had an altercation with a regular poster round these parts apparantly, and, surprisingly, it actually got changed.

    But hey, I've got a Turner Rail med. available if anyone is interested. just pm me. about the lowest standover you're gonna find on the market, and short chainstays is part of the recipe as well.

    god thats a sweet yeti

    but, you really should have kept your P.2. it will be very hard to find a 4X jumping bike for $1200.00 unless you want just a frame. maybe look for an older norco 4x? I do a ton of riding on my P.2, I know a lot of friends that do them on P.3's and cowans.

    I think the limit is like 800X800 pixles or something ? you could just always upload them to photobucket.
