Mountain/Jump bike

Postby Tractatio » 2 May 2013, 5:52pm

Hey, I'm looking for a bike throughout the summer to go riding on, various trails and a bit of jumping on. I usually go for BMXs but have got quite bored of them and having tried a few Jump bikes last year I really liked the feel of them so this year that's what I'm wanting to get or a mountain bike whichever suits what I need/want. So I was just wondering if anyone could give me some advice on what bikes would be the best. I'd prefer somethings that meets these:

Single Speed
26in wheels (Not fussed if 24in though)
Up to £300

Not fussed if second hand or brand new as long as it's in the Uk. Need anymore information just ask.

Thanks Luke

Welcome to the forum Luke.
Afraid that there aren't that many on here into jump bikes, so although the forum is a very helpful place, you probably won't get that many responses. Perhaps somewhere like the MBUK forum might have a little more expertise in the subject?

I am not exactly what age thruster control jump bike is rated for but I am an adult who was looking for a knock around jumping bike and it seems to fit the bill so far. It is basic a hybrid of a mountain and BMX bike and woth 150$
