mid range rockhopper or high end hardrock models are pretty spiffy for that price.

Will you just be jumping it or will this be a trail bike as well?You need to decide how much of each you'll be doing to get a good idea of what you need.

I'd go with something cheaper. With the fights that are breaking out at the jumps you frequent, you're likely to get beaten up and your $900 bike stolen.

If that doesn't work out, start a fight with some guys and steal their bike. Yeah. That would be the coolest.
