How much are you wanting to spend? Are you using it solely for Dirt Jumping or would you use it for other riding as well? And if so what other types of riding ?

Giant STP's are a good solid bike same with the specialized p series. I take it you are a beginner?

GT chucker 1.0s are cheap and have hydraulics, but they are very heavy (I have one) so yu might be better going for a GT Ruckus.

Never had any experience with GT's sorry. Apart from the fork it looks like a pretty sweet build i guess.
