    Both are essentially mtb dirt jump frames. Not sure one could ever quite call an mtb a bmx conversion ? The frame type is the frame type and to me that's what sets a bmx apart from other classes of bikes. I'd say the two are a matter of your preference.

    MTB forum may be a better place to ask.
