What Bike (new to dirt/trail)

Okay Let me start by saying im new to forum and i read the first 8 pages. I've noticed you all say use search button well i dont wanna. I used to race bmx 13-17 than i got a license. I rode gt i build my own bikes and all that good stuff anyways. I'm looking to get into dirt jumping now and trail riding maybe some street with it. Thru all posts i came conclusion you all said a dk six/eight pack or "fit". I dont know the new bikes but i dont want either (i know dk aint new) Im lookin spend 500-700 on a complete dont wanna customize just a nice complete thats not super heavy

I'm 21 5'11 165

http://www.danscomp.com/101756.php?cat=BIKES (2hip playboi)

http://www.danscomp.com/101769.php?cat=BIKES (we the people Boyond)

http://www.danscomp.com/101533.php?cat=BIKES (Integral bel aire)

http://www.danscomp.com/101422.php?cat=BIKES (Stolen Heater)



So are any of those a smart choice for all specs i gave or am i way off for dirt (Main dirt/trail) Some street type of bike?

I like the stolen and it is arguably the best complete out right now.

go with the bel aire. the parts on both are ridiculously good but the 30t chainwheel will be better than the 25 for dirt.

Ebonics? More like "hooked on phonics". Ebonics happens to be a sickass song. Which also happens to be found in Animal All Day...

Go with the stolen, ride it until you break something (should take a long time). Replace/upgrade what you break.
