Hi, I'm looking into starting and getting into freeride this summer. I was wondering what sort of bike would be best, I mean like could I use a DJ as they're USSUALLY slightly cheaper? Or would it best to get a proper Freeride/DH. I would be using it in some dirt areas with jumps (not huge jumps but still some) and any downhill/ freeride centres near me. And would sorta bike would you recommend? I don't wanna spend more than about £600 (£800 limit) (thats about $900)? Thanks

I think you should get a p.slope or a NS soda slope, one of those should work fine. If you don't get a slopestyle bike a real downhill bike.

well for starters its going to be hard to find a DH/freeride bike for $900, the lowest they run is about 1000, and thats a really good deal. But if your doing jumps get a slopestyle bike! You can have the same amount of rush and fun on those. But the main thing is just have fun doing it dude!
