my god...search.

for dirt jumps don't get the pony or anything with a 19" tt...you want something with a bigger top tube for jumping...
if you are looking for complete i would say look at different WTP's besides the pony or maybe dk's if you are going in with less money

if just the frame...maybe try fly bikes or fit or s&m

if you like WTP i would say maybe go with a daredevil complete..it has a 20.25 tt which i think would be good...
or maybe go with a WTP 4 season frame and get a 20" tt for that one...either one i think would do the job for trail riding and street if you are into that.

you are wrong.

the hoffman flow would be good for you Ride 4 Pleasure.
or yea get the fit complete or some frame from them and just customize to whatever you want.

I have a 2002 HaRo Revo. originally for street/freestyle...now its dirt. no front brakes, no gyro, two Holy Rollers 20"x2.20", and DK iron cross grips and no pegs.

(Haros arent that bad...good for beginners tho. I really like my frame and I'm not much of a beginner tho but i cant do big tricks.)

i got my bike for $200 ...its a nice frame (i like my frame a lot) but you have to change like every other part kuz the resto of the parts suck! 1-pc crank, fragile black rims, i like Haro Slim Bars a lot tho.

haro parts = bad...good maybe for beginners...slim bars eh...
haro frames = bad

3 peice cranks are like £90 - £140 so if you buy a real decent 3 pc crank you are well on the way to a new bike !

rims arent bad price though but still at the price you are going to pay 4 a good 3 pc crank put another £60 - £100 and you got a pretty decent new bike se my point ?
