I'm looking for a good, affordable Dirt Jumping frame. So far I have looked at the Azonic steelhead. That's it. Any opinions or recomendations will help.

MC rumble

I've bashed on a P.2 frame for 2 seasons. its taken everything i've thrown at it. you can pick one up used for like 150 bucks. i've heard some good things about the steelheads, but www.cambriabike.com is selling the Mountaincycle Rumble for $219.00

I just got a BlkMrkt Mob. I haven't had a chance to go dirt jumping yet. I think I broke my wrist last Friday while riding some steep stuff. I am a little bummed. I did get to ride urban a few times and the thing is awesome. I had a stealhead and a planet X, Jack Flash.

I have a little I really love the way they feel. I have DJed with a smaller size and tryed out a larger size on a XC course. everyone I have talked to who has had one has loved it. I I know that for 200 bucks, you really cant go wrong. i would even take a rumble over a evil. I really like the part that they're made in my state though :)

what type of riding are you wanting to do with it ?

yea, I'm 6'2" and I was dirtjumping a ...medium ? or a 15 inch, cant remember wich it was. but yea it would make a great urban/jump bike. I was thinking of getting one, putting all the parts from my P. bike on there and then a 80mm sherman jumper.

Yeah complete bike

Yeah,

This is for a complete bike, $399. I'm sure if you go to your local giant dealer you can still get that deal on a STP 2.
