Hi, I want to hear your suggestions about some full suspension Dirt Jump bikes.
I'd prefer to buy a complete bike and i'd want it not so expansive so tell me your suggestions.
thanx ...

Why full suspension? Dirt jumping has smooth transitions. Or maybe this is gonna be a multi-purpose bike for trails, freeride and dj. In that case, full suspension wouldn't be bad. but for dj, street stuff, a hardtail is best. more flickable, lighter, pedal easier. anyway, back to sugestions. full suspension- Kona Howler (sorry, it's $2000 cdn but it's sweet.) Looking around, I can't seem to find any really good quality fs dirtjumpers that are 1500 and under. maybe I missed some. That's also a good thing about buying a hardtail- they are way cheaper.

if your looking for a low travel full susp. dj/4x rig then it will be hard to find one for 1500. tell more about what you want to do with the bike, if its just dj's get a hardtail

The Path Bike shop has both a medium and a large (04 or 05 I can't remember) Norco 4X4 for $1250. I reallly like the way that bike is built. Super tough. Contact them at www.thepathbikeshop.com

Thanx for all your suggestions . I want a FS because I like to go make some downhill too but I do the most of my riding at my local DJ track so that's why ... and I want to follow my friend when we're DownHilling ...

let us know what ya decide on.
p.s. another option I just thought of is to go the heavy duty hardtail route. The Banshee Morphine!
On banshee's website, it's under the "Freeride Ultimate" section and "dirtjump" section. Pretty good match for you if ya don't mind doin alittle dh on a hardtail.

Thanks a lot but all these bikes are pretty expansive ... and maybe I could buy the frame only because I have a norco bigfoot 2005 but one chainstay has bent when I was hit by a car so maybe I could change the frame and keep my pieces ... ?? give me more suggestions I really like it !
