Hey everyone, as the days pass I go cycling more and more and I've realised that my Boomerang that costed 140 euros won't do, the suspension and gears are messed up and it's just not worth repairing them. My parents might pay for a new bike (with me paying 100 euros). I'd be doing jumps, going down stairs, mountain trails, and some tricks like wheelie, endo, bunnyhop, etc. I'm not rich so this bike will have to last me a long while. Right now I'm still at "entry level", I'm not very good at tricks, just normal cycling. I'd be cycling more or less everyday and this bike would have to suit my skill for as long as possible (I want this bike to be good for me (if possible) through entry level and intermediate level.
My budget is around MAX 425 euros, and I was thinking about getting the Trek 3900 for 350 euros but I wanted to hear reccomendations and opinions.
Oh and one question: I see suspensions measured by the "travel" in mm. I assume the more travel the better the suspension right? Oh yeah, what would suit me better, long or short gloves? I've got a pair of orange Fox Mesa ones (short) but my friends keep saying long ones are better.
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: I've upped my max. to around 425 euros.
