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....

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 :eekster:

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.
