    Best Jumper

    I've been looking at bikes for ages now and trying to get myself a new one, but can't seem to find the right one for me. I like cross country bikes such as Marin Wolf Ridge and some of the FSRs, but I also like the downhillers like the Specialised Bighit. I initially wanted a cross between cross country and downhill like the Kona Coilers, but now I'm not so sure.
    The question is, what is the best bike for jumping?

    Honestly,there is no "best jumper", but for dirt jumping hardtails usually are better than full suspension bikes. They're built differently, usually with smaller frame sizes.

    The Norco 125 is a perfect example:

    Yep. If you're going to do dirtjumping, get a hardtail. If you're doing downhill and freeride go for the BigHit.
