Guys I found 3 other bikes I am eyeing on:

Dartmoor Gamer 24 (Manitou Circus)
Dartmoor Two4 Player (Marzocchi 4x)
NS Majesty (Manitou Circus)

Which of these 3 you say is the best?

Depends. One is 26” the rest are 24”? If I’m correct? Which wheel size do you want?

Majesty, without a doubt

Kinda not decided yet. 26" would be good as I got a spare 26 wheelset laying around still.

But 24" are easier to throw around.

Then again total beginner in dj bikes, coming from DH.

Depends which Circus. The Expert and Pro are better than the 4X IMO, but the Sport is a lot worse. That said...I would also go with the Majesty. Head and shoulders above the other two in terms of quality. The 24Player is nice in that you can run MTB or BMX cranks, chainguide, gears, whatever seatpost, but you are restricted to 24" wheels which makes things a bit harder.

Coming from a downhill or trail background I'd recommend a 26 and I'll put a vote out on the majesty as well. Gorgeous, sturdy frame, should last you a long time.

That is a very good point with my background is DH, so stick to bigger wheels.
I think if you coming from BMX you tend to prefer smaller 24" wheels.

Thanks everyone for the quick responses. I will get in contact with the guy that is selling the Majesty.

If youre coming from mtb, youll like mtb parts. I hate bmx cranks. Theyre way too wide. All personal preference, but after you ride mtb cranks, bmx ones will feel odd.

Majesty is one of the best dj frame sever made. Idk about the new tapered ones but the old formula is solid.

DMR tires are the Absolute worst. Sidewall issues will creep up on you eventually just a matter of time. I've had 4 of those tires before. All 4 had sidewalls that just unravelled over time. Khe tires are way thinner and that doesn't happen with them.????‍♂️

I am forever searching for an orange tapered Majesty Dirt.

Lamacycle told me they're vaporware. They essentially don't exist.
