nice thats going to be a pretty sick setup when your done. my current DH/Trail bike is a 05' specialized big hit, completely stock. i loved it out of the shop and never saw a need to change anything i can jump it as big as i want and the thing never bottoms

yeah i like those myself. my dad had a 1996 hatch and he bought it with like 190,000 miles on it and he drove it to over 300,000. It was a great car with excellent mpgs. I wouldn't mind to have a new body style civic but those are getting hard to find with a 5 speed. I could get a new hyundai accent hatch for $9988. Dad had one for a while but it's deal was it was geared too low. 70 mph on the interstate turned 3500 rpms!

Personally, i'd buy a hyundai before i bought a honda.

For the price of a civic, i'd rather get a 2011 sonata

yea man ill look it up. i love my big hit its great, does cost a pretty penny though i probably spent more than i should of on it lol. biggest thing i've taken it off of is 24' step down gap. that thing was nuts its a small creek buts been there for a long time so its about 12' deep on high side and about 8' on he low side. and a dirt jump and landing. would like to hit bigger but not much around here to ride.

NICE! and there is always a place to ride, you just have to explore, go do some urban riding, jump stair gaps and shit. lol. when i get the intense all put together im gonna be anxious to hit that 19 foot step down and the step up step down. i cant do a whole lot of jumping on my trek, it couldnt with hold the landings. lol. ive done wall rides and some little dirt jumps on it, but nothing to huge. i just hate being limited on the size of the jumps, so thats why im buying the intense. i started riding dirt bikes when i was 10 and the jumps just kept getting bigger and bigger. guess im doing the same thing on the bikes now. lol

thats where my dad fell into the hyundai craze (price). he bought an accent hatchback and drove it for a while and then bought my stepmom a 2007 sonata. she was t-boned in a bad accident a few months later. she spent 2 months in the hospital and nearly 3 weeks in icu. She says she'll never drive anything but a hyundai again. Hyundai advertises their lower prices and better quality against everyone else but I haven't fell for the quality yet. Their interiors always seem to be inferior to everyone else anyways.

IMO no not really for what you get. not as far as features go, but you get a car that ill literally never die. i've had many cars but have never been able to break a civic, they take anything you can throw at them. besides the fact that they are popular so that obviously drives up the price. you can find a decent one for around 1000 but a real nice one for around 3000
