    Yeti DJ or Banshee

    Currently riding a Yeti 575
    I like but I want to get back to some BMX 'n
    Would to set up one of the above for an all around type bike;
    BMX, Street, Jump, Cross Country...
    Would like a 1 X 9 or 1 or 10 set up
    I know it won't be the best CC bike but for those times I want to ride trails I would like to raise the post and go

    So what do you guys think? Yeti DJ or Banshee

    thanks

    Yeti DJ frame. The Yeti DJ frame is one sweet piece of flight engineering and, imo, reigns supreme as a 4X and as a subsequent DJ bike. It can do street well enough but it is really built for the dirt variety of the rough and tumble. I pretty much determined that if I were able to get into 4X I would "untankafy" my P1 and get a Yeti DJ for both the jumping and the BMX'n.

    I've got a yeti DJ and it's a ROCKET. 1x9 for me. It's rear end is considerable stiffer than anything i've ridden as close to a bmx bike as u can get. I'm 5'6 riding a small frame. got it for 4x but find myself doing more street and dj

    For cross country... the Amp seems to be lighter but its seat tube is also seriously short: no way to get the seat up for an adult size person.

    The seat tube length applies to all DJ bikes but the Amp is certainly lower there than Yeti's DJ.
