    Your 'cheap' may be someone else's 'expensive'. What's your price range? How old are you? What's your height and weight?

    This info helps...


    But most likley, if you have a high price range, get either a:
    Fit Flow complete
    or
    DK Four Pack

    Possibly the two best completes on the market.

    Building a bike will put you into the $600 range.

    The cheapest it the Poverty buck99, it's on www.danscomp.com for $199, but it's far from great. Also, whats your definition of trails?

    Dirtjumps put a sh!ttonne of force on the frame.

    There is no right bike for you in that price range. Look for used.

    Yeah, ebay is your best bet, and it depends on what specialized model. Their "fuse" models are decent.

    Ahh, The frame isn't full cromoly, so I'd stay away from it. But it's alright if thats all you can find that will fit your budget.

    you don't really have much of a choice with ebay, just look form something with a full cromoly frame and a 3 piece crank.
