My pricerange is pretty wide but i am thinking around a $1000....I also was doing some research and the new Zoo pitbull frame is running for $550... I just want to get something that I won't have to upgrade...right away at least...I just don't know :?
Zebdi or Zoo boa would be a good and cheap beginner bike. zoo Pitbulls and frames with like geometry may be tooo extremely trials for beginner making it hard to start and get used to. I'm pretty sure like 50% of the people on this board started on a zebdi. Boa is similar but slightly longer and has an option between more competition style(no seat and magura mounts) and street style(seat and v mounts). I ride a Zebdi mk5 and pretty much just started but I have progressed quite nicely
What type of riding do you think you'll do? How tall are you?
I bought a Planet X Zebdi, learned the basics, and then figured out very quickly that it was too short for me (I'm 6'-2"). Had I done it all over again, I would've done an Echo Pure for my first.
