    hey guys, I have a question.

    I have been wanting to get into DJ and light freeride for awhile but havent got a bike yet. I really like the transition double frames but I dont have near enough cash for them. Is there a cheap full suspension Dirt jump bike out there that is good? I am looking to buy a full suspension DJ frame for around 500 USD. Is that doable?

    thanks

    I looked at the parker and I think I'm gonna get it:weee:. Its got high ratings and I think its a cool bike. plus you cant get one at that price anywhere, even used.
    thanks guys.

    oh, and does anybody know if the parker frame would work with a 150mm travel fork, it says its designed for 100 to 130 but does it really matter?

    A know a kid with 1 and he has a 66vf 150mm on it, its a little big, but if your riding it at a mountain, its appropriate. For the DJs and park, id stick with a smaller fork.

    I think I'll do an old cheap-ass dirt jumper with around 120-130mm, anybody got anything as to the cheapest of the cheap(but still good) DJ forks?
