I would get a 4300 and put a DJIII on it. Then you could huck off of cliffs and have the ultimate freeride bike for under $600.

If you get the DJ III, why not go all the way with a Super Monster? Like so??

*Note frame is a Minuteman but you get the idea.

Pimped out eh? Only something you would find on PinkBike

I say put the DJIII on a FS Walmart bike would save a bit of money. That way you can get some pimp chrome wheels and one of those big comfy cushy suspension seats.

If you get one of those Walmart FS bikes, odds are the rear shock isn't gonna work properly so it only means one thing....UPGRADE!
