Durable hardtale for streets, dirt, and cross country.

I'm looking for a hardtale that would be suitable for mostly the streets, dirt jumping and some cross country. I have been looking at Specialized bikes but i am not sure if they would be suitable. Please advise.

Evil Imperial SL...just because i love it

Specialized P3..this bike is beautiful, and solid. Sweet DJ bike and could also be a very nice street bike.

Norco 4HUN..wow is all I can say.

Now this is all assuming that you have a rather large budget, and intend to ride the crap out of it. These bieks are top of the line and deserve to be ridden.

Also, theyre not exactly XC bikes, but im sure they would do the job...

the evil d.o.c. would be better suited for all those types of riding than the imperial. the soveriegn would be a good choice too.

heck, i don't think you can really go wrong with any of evil's bikes, haha.
