Hi
i am looking to buy a new trail bike, i have been riding a jump bike for years park dirt street and all that, have recently started riding more trails and am really enjoying it except its tough work with one gear 24" wheels and a tiny frame.
i rele enjoy nice tight single track and bombing hills and like the feel of a small agile bike as im used to a jump bike but want something that can get me between the hills and up them as well

any help or advice is much apreciated
i have a few bike sin mind and am going to try and ride as many of them as i can befor i decie but any wisdom on servicing and relaibility would be great

    i think the blood is more of an all mountain/freeride machine whereas the attack trail is more XC/alll mountain ish, from what i can tell from the builds
