 Hows about some company actually makes a bike like these? For me a jumpy trail bike is 120mil, short stays and small wheels, not 500 reach, 29, plow machine...

 Casue the market for them is maybe 1 every 3500-5000 bikes sold if that. It amazing anyone even makes a DH rig or dirt jumper anymore. It won’t sell. It’s that simple . @aljoburr:

 @freeridejerk888: But if they made some they would sell at least 2?

 Okay that’s great but it takes more than two frame sales too offset the cost of production @aljoburr:

 @freeridejerk888: That is the ignorance of the sellers & the buyers?
