Echo Urban 24"

They do ride really nice with the right bar and stem setup (something like an Onza PZ31 85mm x 20° stem would be ideal, or the 75mm Hope stem), but the Inspireds do feel a bit better for it. I just switched from the Urban to an Inspired purely 'cos I rode Stan's and with the slightly shorter front end it just makes them ideal for bunnyhops and spins. Couldn't get 360 hops on my Echo at all, pretty much got them on my Inspired now.

Looks wise, I do quite like the look of the Echos, but the Inspireds look better proportioned. I doubt you'd have strength issues with the Echos either, but you can guarantee you won't with the Inspired.

If you're buying new, then I reckon the Inspired would be the one to go for. If you're going second hand and you've got a good offer on the Echo then it might be worth it (Y)

Thanks.

So the Echo will be good enough for doing BMX stuff?

Its just that I can get an Echo Urban new from a dealer 30 mins from my house for about 700 pounds, compared to 1500 pounds for an Inspired Fourplay from tartybikes! haha.
