PostSubject: Traildigger vs Ramrodder   Tue May 05, 2009 10:56 pm

I'm new to bmx and I'm looking for my first bike. I'm thinking about either the traildigger or the ramrodder. I've read reviews but they aren't very informative. Are there other bikes which are in the same price range but better? Could people send their opinion. Thanks

Which TRL? There's like 3 or something. Thanks anyway. Is the TRL good for dirt, jumps, skate park and street?

The kink transition is a great bike. To the common misconception, the Fit TRL 1 and STR 1 are not better than the kink transition. The transition would be good for just about everything i.e. Skateparks, street, trails etc. except for hardcore flatlanding.

Overall it is a great bike and yes the danscomp prices are in US dollars. You will need a currency converter found free on google.

danscomp.com turned out to be more expensive. $800 AUD for a $500 AUD bike. $270 dollars shipping.

the kink transition is an amazing bike 2 of my friends have it it rides really smooth and flow on dirt and is super dialed for street and park....im sher you could probably goodgle it and find a shop near you that could get a kink transition for you

I went into a bike shop and the guy there recommended the DK Cleveland. It was on sale for $500 AUD ($380 american). Is it a good bike?

Stick with the Kink Transition, it's cheaper because of the sale, and it won't break like a DK bike will. I had a DK step up, I bent the bars 90 degrees, shattered the fork, cracked the rim, and bent the cranks. Don't get a DK.
