So I want a bike that is more based on freeride, but does it "all".
E.g.- I need it to do some DH, Street, Dirt Jumps and Freeride.

What bike would you guys recommend for this a Morphine or a Jackal. and what setup.

Thanks

well considering a Jackal is pretty much just a DJ frame and is made for a 100mm fork, go with the Morphine.

or try to find an Imperial frame, I loved mine wish I didn't sell it.

Of the two, Morphine. That said, I'd look at somthing like a Transition Vagrant, Norco Shore Series, etc. for more of a do it all sort of bike.

morphine of your 2 choices but personally i would take a good hard look at the vagrent. that is my personal fav. for what you are looking out hands down. btw i use to own a morphine, a good bike for sure that will never let you down (i.e. break) but it is not really the good of a dj bike.

I personally like the Jackal and am actually building it up to suit my needs (similar to what you want).
Check it out on the official Jackal Thread.

I'd go for the Banshee, sweet ride. I had one w/ 66s. I ran it ss for a while then got back into trail riding and threw some gears on it.

Def took what I gave it an wanted more. I ran it down some DH runs @ Mammoth and acctu had more fun on it than my AS-X

greatest hardtail FR frame ever. I have had one for a few years and it does not get any better. I came from fully's but got sick of fixing things. This bike is spot on, I just went back to a fully so if you are interested in buying a real nicely set up used one let me know.

Vancouver eh?

ever see a half bald guy named Dax rolling around on an black old school Intense M1? He lives outside of town a ways but he probably rolls around town to pick up chicks.
