Should i take my old 26" hardtail and do a single speed swap and get some slicks for it before I get a dj bike? Fork has seen better days, but its so stiff, it feels like its been pumped up high, and has slow as heck rebound

You could always grab a norco dj, the havoc and ryde usually go for pretty cheap and imo were great all around. Whats the specs on your hardtail?

I have no idea, it was my first "mountain bike" parents paid 400 bucks for it like in 2012. Its a specialized hardrock. I don't know how much the specs have changed in the past 6 years, but it would just be to goof off a little bit here and there. And if i'm getting a dj bike, I'm just going to drop the cash and get the commencal absolut, just don't have the $ just yet for it

I wouldn't bother with converting the hardrock. if only you were in the Maritimes, I have an old p.2 cromo frame laying around that I'd give away lol You could just grab the commencal, and if you don't like it sell it.

All I know is I want to get a dj bike real bad because I discovered a group of 5 guys have been digging dirt jumps out of a hillside next to a small section of trails not even a half mile away from my house. I'd take my enduro bike on it, but the amount of work those guys have put into it is incredible. Starts off with some rollers to 2-3 foot gaps, massive berm, then 10-15 foot gaps with 10-12 foot lips, all built with shovels and rocks from the hillside. No one knows about it, its a secret trail, only met the builders twice

check the buy sell section on here for sure but the norco ryde is a good pick imo just picked one up to flip and I was impressed at how well it rides. Around here they go for 300 or so cad, probably considerably less in usd.

I've seen them go for as low as 150cad,pretty good bang for your buck
