    Norco 125 VS. Specialized P2

    Hey guys im looking to buy a new bike and was wondering your guys's opinions. I need the bike for jumps/drops/freeride/street/trials. Please tell me what you guys think is better for the above riding. Feel free to post different kinds of bikes that are great for those types of riding. I just need to know how good these bikes are and the quality. Thanks.

    P.2 feels like a bmx bike, 125 has more dirtjumping geometry. Both can be used for light trials and their quality is high. And there is soooooooo many bikes in your price range/riding style area.

    Look into a Giant STP1. The geometry is designed for dirt jumping and trials, also works for street and trail riding.

    I like the norco better. It comes with a TA! The thing I would do if I got either of them is change the brakes... The MX-2s just wouldnt cut it.
