Need advice for older rider - bike choice

Alright guys, give me some advice. Im a moutain bike racer, but lately the local trails started popping up with drops and other jumps. Well, it brings me back to my glory days of old. Now Im thinking I would like to score a bike that I can use for these type drops/jumps - but also the local bmx track for some kick around riding. I was thinking of maybe the specialized p 1 or something along those lines. I would like the larger wheels. thanks,

Then you want a cruiser. If I were you I would probably go with the 24" DK General Lee. It's not made for racing but it'll work. Just don't get anything with an aluminum frame for trails. Go for chromoly.

Get the S&M cruiser frame and build it up. You MTB you can spend a little more cash and build a up a custom since those MTB's are hella expensive.
