Hey Noble, I think it is a cool bike for jumping and hucking. That is the nature of this bike. With that being said you have to ask yourself what your biking intentions are? Do you primarily Air it out or are you looking for an all around ride. I think the Jack fits the first bill, but if you intend to XC or trail ride I think this bike may limit you in those areas. Bottom line is you know your riding style now and where you want to be in the future.
