I'm starting to think that my bike isn't really set up for the type of riding I've been doing lately. We've been hitting some pretty nasty stair drops and gaps and other urban freeride stuff on the local campus lately, and I'm not sure the bike is going to last long with me treating it this way. I'm not a big guy, but I've been beating the **** out of the bike the way I've been riding it lately. We've been dropping 5 or more feet onto hard pavement, and so far haven't had any mechanical problems.. but I realize my bike is set up for XC, not freeriding and dirt jumping. So what do you guys think I should do? We ride alot on the street since it's urban assault type stuff.... so obviously at least some efficiency would be nice. But I also ride some singletrack and trails with jumps and whatnot. I'm just wondering what sort of bike I should build up. I'd really like to build a hardtail for urban freeriding and maybe some trail riding... but I think a dual suspension freerider would be a better choice for the urban stuff. I'll probably keep the XC bikes for the singletrack. So what should I build up? I think a hardtail with wide tires and a big fork up front would be ideal for the urban stuff, but I'm kinda torn. A big hit bike would be pretty expensive compared to a hardcore hardtail. I'm a pretty smooth guy, but riding this XC bike with 3 inches of travel and a stiff wheelset is really beating the hell out of me. What should I build? And what brand should I go with?
