i just recently started mountain biking and dirt riding. I also found a place where i can build small jumps and all that fun stuff. But my current mtn bike is a POS. It doesnt handle well when i land from a jump, the brakes are crap, the gears suck, and the only thing that i like about it is its light weight. Does anyone know any good mtn bikes for trail riding, dirt riding and doing jumps, but isnt too expensive?
