Santa Cruz Jackal or Kona Cowan

First post here, been reading for a little while.

I want a dirt jump, street bike and tossing up between the two of these. I love both brands of bikes but don't know a great deal about the dirt jumpers, any help would be great of why one would be better than the other

In a recent MBA the Jackal scored low in their DJ shootout. That being said the Cowan was not part of that shootout, but is generally highly regarded from a build and geometry standpoint.

Dont go with the jackal unless all your going to do is dirtjumping. I've tryed to do some street with a friends jackal, they're horrible. if your going with santacruz, get the chamelion. But I would definatly go for the Cowan. There are a lot of options, go and test ride them all and see wich one feels best.

if your going to want to do anything other than dirtjumping then dont bother with the jackal.
