don't get a session 7 if you're going uphill...especially at 13
my one that i just sold weighed 49 with totems
i'd say the preston fr
but what i really think you should do is build up a double or get a hardtail

if ur Mr Serious about riding the go for something else, but if you just wanna have fun with your mates and enjoy riding, then go for a bottlerocket - its the only bike i kno which can handle downhill (quite comfortably i might add) and session a skatepark on.

I had a 36 pound session 7. You can get them light enough and they ride great for trails and downhill.

Have you considered a sx trail? Dirt mag and anyone I know thinks the sun shines out thier cranks.

go for the bottlerocket it is pedalable and able to handle the DH
