What a good FS frame?

I plan on getting a full suspension frame in the future, but I don't know where I can buy one (online) and whats good. My use is probably going to be dirt jumps little of dh, street.

Anything advise would be helpful.
Thanks

If youre going to be djing and street, a full suspension isnt the smartest thing to use. But if you "had to", I would get this:

If it had to be FS, I'd do a coiler.

Just get a better hardtail IMO. FS is rather dumb for dirt and street... and if you don't do a lot of downhill, you can manage fine on a hardtail. Maybe not be competitive with the racers on FS bikes, but you can't have everything.

usually dh bikes arent the best for street, as for the kona stinky, riding that for street would kill you, the pedal bob is terrible

Here are a few DH vids. They might be old, but they are still good.

If you dont ride like them then youre not downhilling.

EDIT: Not all of those are DH vids but most are. Watch Faster than the world, Grand Pile 03 and Camp Fortune 03, thatll give you a good idea of what DH is.
