hey guys! simple question.. whats a good hard tail bike that will keep up with my friends up on the trails? i also do a lot of dirt jumping. would it be wise to invest in a single speed? or would a multi-speed be a better option? right now it seems like a specialized p. 26 AM is a great value, as i can only afford something under $1000. i would like to buy new. thanks!
