I believe they are a cheaper line to the STP. More on the entry level of Dirtjumping/Freeriding I think.

Incorrect, Although they both are hard tails the Brass is intended more for trail riding were you spend more time on the ground pedaling. Its more lugish with a heavy feel at lower speeds but more stable than the stp at high speeds. The brass is more of a aim it in the direction you want to go in and hope for the best type of bike. The stp is for trick riding were there's a lot of body english put into the bike. You dont aim the stp you steer it with your entire body. Hope that helps

Your Welcome. I didn't know any thing about 26 inch bikes at all so I did a lot of test riding and brain picking at the lbs I wanted a brass but found out the large stp was way better for me. SO I got a stp frame and now im building a stp Smile

Would you guys say the full suspension brass is more of a freeride bike???

It looks more like more of a slopestyle bike but it is heavy from what I've heard. But with a little money put into it and buying the right parts, it can be light. But stock it still looks to be a decent bike.
