    buy complete or build custom?

    ok, if im getting a complete its gonna probably be a DK four-pack, but if i wanted to put together a custom dirt jumper what would be a good frame, and what would i expect to pay for a decent frame?

    What's wrong with the bike you have now, besides the fact that your bars are in a really fu*ked up position and your seat post is as high as you would have it on a flatland bike, why not just tune up that bike and maybe buy a few better parts and then ride it till you acctually do need a new bike

    Just double whatever you think it will cost to build a bike, and you've got a good starting point.

    if you are thinking about gettin a DK Four Pack...then you really dont kneed to build a custom bike...that bike comes with everything STOCK...cassette hubs, micro 33-12 gearing sealed euro BB, 4130 100%, its just a great bike...so go with the DK...

    ok, i've also been hearing lots about eastern's ace of spades, would this be a better choice as far as dirt jumping?

    i like the DK 4 Packs...but the Eastern has a little better reputation..at least where i come from...plus you already get the super small sprocket with cassette rear hub, NICE sealed crank, just one nice bike....i would go with the Jane....just because it is simply called a Jane..and not a name of a Poker Card or something/////but the DK is not a bad choice either....STILL go with the Jane
