What would you think is better for a 6ft2” guy as a DJ/Street/Trail/All rounder

2011 Specialized P2, or
2012 Dartmoor 26 Player

Welcome your thoughts!

No
they are both far too low to have the post either dumped or high enough to pedal.

The alternative would be to have two seats and posts.

a Long one for pedaling and a short one for jumping

I guess not, would have to be prepared for whatever type of riding I do...I guess there is nothing stopping me from removing the seat to jump. I'm not at a stage where I am doing superman etc lol

Don't get me wrong you could drop a long post down a fair bit it.

If you want it DJ dumped then it would have to be shorter but for general trail jumps you could leave it with the long post.

Be best to get a frame sorted first.

Have you got an idea of where you wanna get the dartmoor from? i know someone who is selling one from Rad bikes in highwood.

Would be the Dartmoor for me out of those 3 although the forks could do with an upgrade at some point for weight and adjustability.
