For racing I would the NRS. But if you like to do drops, jumps and what not while your not racing, then the VT will be a better investment as it will stand up to more.xcmtb200 said:Hi, I'm a 14 year old boy looking to get my first real mountain bike.

First of All.. I'm only 15. I got my XTC2 for my 15birthday, my parents gave me about 10% into the bike and I had ot save for about a year ot get it. So it is possible for some 14 year olds to get pricey bikes. I have friends that have been given 3grand+ bikes straight from their parents just cause they wanted a bike(yes it's not fair).xcmtb200 said:For free riding i'm going to buy a biger fork for the bike that i have now.

Whatever you do...make sure that you at least ride a Gia.nt VT-2 or 3 before you decide on buying anything else.xcmtb200 said:My friend recomended a Specialized StumpJumper or Enduro. Are these out of my budget, and are they worth it?
No specs but I can give you the run down of it...xcmtb200 said:Can you guys please give me the specs and cost of a NRS3? Thanks
Mmm for some reason of late I seem to be the one on the high zoot HT who still DNF'sKolo Wrote: Last but not least a question. Who is more respected; the guy on the cheap(er) HT who dusts everyone, or the poser on the high zoot FS who DNFs? Which guy do you want to be?
That due to HTs having lost their resale before you but themKolo said:- A HT will retain its re-sale value a bit better than an FS as there are less parts to wear out and it is less likely to be outmoded by the latest greates suspension designs a couple of years down the track
