Good Dirt Jump Bike?

Postby Ferris on Tue 1/Feb/11 10:20pm

hey guys im really into downhill and now gunu REALLY get into DJ's

what would be a good frame and forks for a MINT dj?

im also gunu get a trickster for it.

i have seen a specialzed P.1 that looks sick (as in the frame) but im not sure if there is a better option out there, kinda want the trek Ticket, im not very up to date in terms of dj bikes.

thanks for your help

Check out the 2011 Kona shonky. Looks sweet in raw steel finish, good bits on it too.
Alternatively the 2011 Marin Alcatraz is another nice steely. Higher spec than the shonky and slightly controversially colour schemed.

My NS Traffic is pretty sweet, as are the majesty's. My mates rocking a Spank Tweet Tweet which is pretty good, the STP's arent too bad either.

What about the 2011 Kona Bass? The Marin Alcatraz looks sick as well.

Pretty much any dirt jump bike is going to be good for dirt jumps. its pretty much whats in your area and how much blow you have.

They don't bring them into NZ anymore for some reason.

So yeah, get a Kona Shonky or Cowan, or Marin Alcatraz

Giants distributer stopped bring in the STP's in 2010 because of poor number of sales in the 2009 range (where giant where way over priced because of economy.) For a good frame i would look at NS bikes, Blackmarket or if you have a high budget Santa cruz Jackel is a real winner. Forks go for a rockshox Argyle, best DJ fork out in my opinion
