Are you looking for a BMX bike, or a Dirt Jumper with suspension? How big of jumps are you looking at doing. And are you wanting to do "tricks"?

Darin asks valid questions. Are you looking for freeride MTB kinda jumping or Ryan Nyquist BMX kinda jumping? They take very different bikes.

Why would anyone want to ride dirt like Ryan Nyquist, he cases every jump.

So maybe he can suicide-nohanded flip, and then quad barspin the next jump, and 720 the last one...

But, wheres the style...
Leave those icky tricks for park.

Ride trails with flow and style.

Haha, nah, to each there own (style of riding)


The X Games arent that great anyways, they focus more on the household names (like Mirra, Nyquist) opposed to the people that really ride good...

As muc has I hate the X-Games, that has to be one of the dumbest comments I've ever read. Mirra and Nyquist destroy pretty much everything they touch.

Yeah, that came out wrong, i was trying to say, no matter how bad they ride, they show them, a few years back when Gary Young got 2nd, he wasnt even on TV, at all, and i had to go online to Ride site, and BMX Plus!'s site to find out who got second...


They only show the household names...

Except that one year with Bruce Chrisman..

But he won first.

I know that, but what about the people that are on fire that day, and also ride very well, like Gary Young...?
