Ive come to a slight problem in terms of getting a Jumpbike, I've got a maximum of £1,000.
I'm 16 and 6ft2, and it seems like Ive got a bit more growing to do, so I could be hitting around 6ft4 or even 6ft5 while still riding. At my local country park they do 4x racing, and I may decide to head towards that sort of scene, along side the dirt jumps and so on.

I've managed to narrow it down to a selection of DJ bikes;

Yeah, the 2013 NS Metropolis 2 does have solid specs, looks pretty nice too, I'm just wondering, how well would the metropolis take the hits and bails?
