bmx to mtb. What bike?

Postby mongoose_rider2007 » Sat Sep 01, 2007 21:47 pm

Im just starting mtb, and im coming from a predominantly bmx background. Im looking to ride some trials and street but mainly dirt jumping. Ive been looking at saving for the mongoose ritual as it seems it would be a good bike to transition from bmx to mtb. Is it a good bike and should I consider getting it?

A DMR could maybe suit you, or a 24/7 Slacker

Identiti P-45 can take a sus fork later if needed.

Very BMXy.
