Hello eveyone!

its the first time i'm investing (50 bucks budget) a 'real' mountain bike and I need some advice because i admit.. I AM the biggest noob ever! (just yesterday, i thought DH was a derivative of DP)

Here's want i want from a bike ;
-it can withstand 10 foot jumps
-it has blockable 150 mm (minimum) fork travel

and lets answer the moderators's's's questions:

1) Your budget? : well i was thinking around 70 dollars max but i can pushit to 80....naah just kidding, my budget is 4k

2) What bikes, if any, are you already considering?
well i HATE doing research for bikes online (although if a model is adviced , i would dig deeper) BUT here is what appeared ''visually sexually appealing'' :
- specialized enduro
- go sport scrapper 7.3 (SCRAPPER RIDE 7.3 - NS VTT INTENSIF H - Sport - achetez sur
- giant reign (dunno whats the difference between the hundreds of reigns and trances n s*it)

3) What type of riding do you intend to do? flying

4) Do you have a preference over a hardtail or full suspension?

5) Age, weight and height.
hey! isnt that personal!? ( im average height, average weight and average age..OKAY!??

6) What sources will you consider buying from?
a licensed store that doesnt scam me then skin me

From the website and the "merci" at the end I can tell you speak french, if not, than good luck translating what I'm saying:

La différence entre les Trance:
le Trance X - 140mm / Trail
le Trance SX - 160mm / Enduro
plus le chiffre est bas, plus les composants vont être bon, ex:
Trance X1 est meuilleur qu'un Trance X3 si les deux sont de la même année!

Maintenant la différence entre les Reign:
le Reign - 150mm / All-Mountain - Enduro
le Reign X - 160mm / Enduro - FR

Si tu connait pas les catégories non plus je vais te le mette en ordre:

XC/Cross-Country = 100-120mm, beaucoup de monté, vélo léger et fragile

Trail = 120-140mm, monte et descend aussi bien, vélo d'environ 28 livres, un peu plus solide

All Mountain/Enduro = 140-160mm, Orienter descente mais peut monter assez bien, 30+ livres, assez solide

Freeride/Downhill = 180mm et +, seulement pour descente, saut de 50 mètres, incassable

Maintenant tu dit vouloir faire des sauts de 10 mètre, avoir un "Lock-Out" et minimum 150mm de suspension. Si tu ne doit pas monter la montagne sur ton vélo, va pour un vélo de Freeride, si tu doit monter, un vélo d'Enduro bien costaux.

Si tu choisi le vélo de Freeride ou Downhill voici quelques bonnes marques/modèles:
-Giant Reign X (FR/AM)
-Giant Glory (DH)
-Specialized Stratus (FR)
-Specialized Demo (DH)
-Scott Voltage FR (FR)
-Scott Genius (DH)
-Trek Session (DH)
-YT Tues (DH)
-YT Noton (FR)
-Rocky Mountain Flatline (DH)

Ou si tu choisi un vélo All-Mountain ou Enduro:
-Giant Reign X (FR/AM)
-Specialized Enduro (AM)
-Trek Slash (AM)
-YT Capra (AM)

Regarde ces vélos, choisi ceux qui te plait le plus et dit moi si tu a besoin de plus de détails

Liens de touts ces vélo:
-Giant Reign X
-Giant Glory
-Specialized Enduro
-Specialized Stratus
-Specialized Demo
-Scott Voltage FR
-Scott Genius
-Trek Session
-YT Tues
-Rocky Mountain Flatline
-Trek Slash
-YT Noton
-YT Capra
