    Go to your local bike shop and take a look at the bikes they have, and ask them what a good bike for dirt jump/street would be.

    700 euros is about 900 us dollars, ideally that would get you a Rockhopper Comp Disc, sadly, bikes (that come from the US) are more expensive in Europe, about 50% more expensive, still, 700 euros should still be able to get you a Hardrock Comp Disc with some haggling.

    I don't know about Mondraker bikes but a Hardrock Comp Disc would be a great bike for your needs.

    Any of the Iron Horse Yakuza bikes are perfect for all around freeriding. Not sure if they will ship to you, but Performance has some great prices right now:
